OCC Challenge and IC185 Baby Card!!!

Happy Saturday everyone!!!

Hope you are enjoying your weekend so far??? Here in Georgia the weather is super hot we had a heat index over 100 Fahrenheit yesterday!!! It looks like it will be the same way today.....a little too hot for my taste!!!

This hot weather allowed me to stay indoors and I had a chance to get some stampin' done - wahooo - lots to tell ya and show you next week!!! I'm a little bit worn out from going to the pool.....KWIM??? And it's not healthy to stay outside with those temperatures!!!

Anyway - today is another fun OCC Challenge. Jennifer is still hosting it and she has challenged us to add *STARS* to our card/project!!!

I pulled out a retired SU Set called Dad's Day.

The BG Stamp from this Set has a lot of tiny little stars on it and I thought this would be a good Set to use since I was still in need of a Father's Day card for my FIL.

I started out with a Kraft CS base and added a layer of Bashful Blue CS. Next I pierced around the edges.

The next Kraft CS panel was inked with the BG Stamp in Fresh Snow (PTI) . I actually inked it twice and from the leftovers I punched out a star using the Large SU Star Punch. I added a Wooden Vintage Button (PTI) on top it and tied it with some matching blue Scrap Floss.

The sentiment was inked in Chocolate Chip and again I added some piercing around it. Next I layered it onto a Bashful Blue CS and a White CS.

Please swing by the OCC Blog for all the Samples from the team and to see who won last weeks prize plus so much more!!!

For close ups please visit the OCC ladies on their blogs - Cindy, Jennifer, Vicki, Frances, Loretta, Jenny and Joycelyn.

**************************************

Here is my card for the IC185 - Bugaloo. It also fits the OCC Challenge.......since it has stars on it!!!! I decide on this super cute pair of shoes....plus I ran with the overal *BOY* theme!!!


I use the super cute Precious Bundle Set that was designed by my sweet friend Jami Bova for 2RedBananas.

Can you believe I actually made a *Baby Boy* card - LOL??? I'm always drawn to make *pink* cards, but this image is just perfect for IC Challenge!!!

I started out by inking the image in Memento Black and colored it with Copic and Prisma Markers - E00, N1, YG91, B34 and PM-21.

I raised the blanket up with some Stampin Dimensionals and added some Angel Wings Shimmerz to the moon and stars.

The Bashful Blue DP is from the retired Hostess Level I Prints Pack Designer Series. I added some of the new Crushed Curry CS and dressed it up with some Blue Rhinestone Brads.

The sentiment was inked in Basic Black and I pierced right below it!!!

Hope you play again with us this week??? Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thank you for stopping by!!!

You made one of the neatest father's day cards I've ever seen! I LOVE the colors, star and button, but especially the sentiment! The 2nd card is so sweet and I love that it's on kraft! Great job times 2!
