OCC Challenge - Christmas in August!!!

Happy Saturday everyone!!!

If you're here for the Gina K. Blog Hop please click right HERE. Missed the post last night click too :) !!!

It's time for another OCC Challenge today!!! Loretta has challenged us to create a *CHRISTMAS* card/project...can't start to early with them....now I only have to create 99 more - LOL!!!

Anyway - I'm also teasing you with some brand spankin' new Stampin' Up goodies that will be available in the new Holiday Mini Catalog on September 1st!!!






















Here is what I've done......First I embossed my White and Real Red CS with the new Textured Impression Folder - *Pals-A-Plenty*. After the White CS was embossed I added the cool new Platinum Shimmer Paint - awesome and fun stuff guys (it will be available in three different colors !!!)

Next I used some Real Red CS and added the new Silver Merry & Bright Rub-On sentiment. Once it was rubbed on I punched the senitment out with the new Ornament Punch.

The circles were created with the Spellbinder Circle Dies. Each circle and the ornament were raised with Stampin' Dimensionals. I added some Silver Cord and Real Red Striped Ribbon for decoration.

Before I forget the beautiful Sketch is from Verve Visual - AVS204.

Please stop by the OCC blog to find out all the information on how to play along!!!
