OCC...White on White Challenge


Good Saturday Morning Peeps!

It is time for a new challenge on the Our Creative Corner Blog. This week Kristen is our challenge hostess and she challenge us to only use white on our creations. She gave us this photo for some inspiration:


I have to say I was a bit intimidated  by this challenge, I don't think I have ever made a white on white card, but after I got started it wasn't so bad.

I used some PTI white card stock for my card, I love the weight of this card stock and it embosses so well. It is great for a nice base too. I used the Stampin Up Sizzix Little Leaves sizzlit die and cut out several leaves. I then cut  out a flower from the retired Stampin Up Sizzix Big Bold Cupcakes Candles sizzlit and I also cut out a few butterflies from the Embosslits Beautiful Wings Sizzix die also made by Stampin Up. I did these all in white. I stamped the sentiment, which is from the Stampin Up Bold Blossom stamp set, onto a scrap piece of white with basic gray ink that I stamped of once. I used the Decorative Label Punch to punch out the sentiment. The hardest part of this card was adding dimesionals to all the little leaves, each leaf on here has a dimensional under it as does the flower and sentiment piece. The butterflies are glued directly to the embossed piece. I added some basic rhinestones around, gotta love some bling!!!!





Be sure to check the Our Creative Corner Blog to see what the rest of the design team came up with for this fun  challenge. I hope you can find some time to play along and if you do don't forget to link it up over on the Our Creative Corner Blog so we can all see it!

Thanks for stopping by today and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!

I think I may have figured out this comment problem I've been having! Thank goodness 'cause I've been so impressed with your creations the last few weeks They've been amazing and this week is no exception! I LOVE the simple elegance to this, the background (one of my fav's) and the leaves with the simple bling touches are SO gorgeous! I hope you liked playing with white! Have a great weekend!

Gorgeous, as always Vicki! You may not have done white-on-white before, but your first attempt came out amazing! I really love all the texture - especially the way you added dimension with the die cuts! Just totally beautiful.

Hope you are having a great weekend.

Hugs,
Linda
