Time for the OCC Challenge!!! Today we have a Color Challenge....for you!!! Lori is challenging us to some very interesting colors :) and what a challenge it was - LOL!?!
To be honest with you...it was a *tough* one for me and my brain is still smokin' - he,he,he!!! Hmmm - I really needed to get inspired....so I waited for the IC202 - Xenia Taler to go live... and to my pleasant surprise I found these fabulous hand crafted tree tiles and I knew what to do - wahooooo!!!
Let me just tell you....I was playing *Russian Roulette* tonight....I almost didn't have a card for the OCC.... :() - I know I'm crazy!!!! Stef saved my little fanny with this awesome Inspiration Challenge!!!
I had a really hard time placing the *Handsome Hunter* & *Sage Shadow* together in one card - LOL!!! But once I colored the gorgeous Birch Tree Painting Set from Innovative Stamp Creations for my image I realized I could combined these two colors..... and out came this fabulous new color you see on my card!!! You should try it - it really looks AWESOME!!! Let me know what you think :) after you tried it?!? BTW - it did not mess up my Markers at all by combining these two colors....just go easy on the Sage Shadow :)!!!
Please make sure you swing by the OCC Blog for all the Samples. If you get a chance to stamp this week I hope we have inspired you to play a long with us :) !?!
Here is a card I made with the newly released ODBD Sympathy Sets - *Praying for You* and *With Heartfelt Sympathy*.
I was inspired by Sharon Johnson's - ssnotime109 to make a *Gate fold*. I haven't made a *fold* card in awhile and thought it would be perfect for a *Sympathy* card.
The DP I used is from the beautiful Thoroughly Modern Collection and I embossed it with the Cuttlebug Folder - Branch Leaves.
Next I added the Bible Verse on the outside and stamped the inside of the card - both were inked in Chocolate Chip!!!
At last I added the Brown Ribbon and the sparkly Prima Flowers with the decorative Design Brads.
This *Gate fold* card measures 5 1/2" x 5 1/2". If you have never made a one before....here is how you cut your Cardstock - 5 1/2" x 11". Next you score the 11" side at 2 3/4" and at this point I usually flip my Cardstock around and score is again at 2 3/4" - voila!!! Have fun making one too!!!
Thank you so much for stopping by today!!! Enjoy your weekend!!!
