Good Morning Peeps!! It is Saturday and that means it is time for another new challenge at Our Creative Corner.
This week our challenge hostess is the fabulous Jen Rzasa from Our Change of Art. Jen has challenged us to use Fabulous Floss! Embroidery floss is a versatile embellishment that can be used to jazz up your papercrafting. It's inexpensive, fun to use, and comes in every imaginable color. Don't be afraid to think beyond embroidery to incorporate floss into your next project!
I broke out a new stamp set, Stampin' Up Fabulous Florets for my card. I used some pretty in pink, crumb cake and very vanilla card stock. I stamped the stem silhouette onto the very vanilla with pear pizzazz ink. I then stamped three of the flowers onto very vanilla and colored them in with pretty in pink ink using my aqua painter.
I wasn't sure how I wanted to incorporate my floss into the card but finally decided to go with just a few cross stitches along the edges. I used my piercing tool and mat pack to pierce the holes and then went in with my needle and three strands of the floss and made the stitches. I added a button with more floss to the end of my sentiment piece. I added a basic pearl to the flower centers and the base and main image are both added to the card with dimesionals. The DSP I used on here is from a retired pack and I don't remember the name.
I hope you’ll play along this week and have fun with this challenge! Be sure to check out the rest of the OCC design team creations! To play along, upload your creation to your blog or gallery, then leave a comment linking to your project over at Our Creative Corner so we can check it out. If you upload to SCS, remember to use keyword: OCCC.
Well, that is all from me for now, Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
