Follow Along...

Sunday, November 14, 2010


I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!  I have been!  I attended two awesome stamp classes at our local scrapbooking store (MOT).  They were so much fun and I learned a new technique that I can't wait to try out.  It's been around for a while, but it's new to me.  I'll hopefully show you my creation later in the week but now onto this week's sketch challenge.  All you have to do to play along is use an OCL stamp set, follow the sketch provided and link your creation to The Lounge could even win an OCL stamp set of your choice!

This card uses three different OCL sets:  Trim the Tree, Vintage Swirls and Ole St. Nick.  Now tell me if the ornament and swirls aren't a perfect match!

With my Neenah paper still in the Spellbinders die, I sponged three shades of green (lightest in the center all the way to darkest on the outside edge).  I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up and stamp the swirls from Vintage Swirls then used it again to line up the ornament.  I embossed it by first inking my stamp with VersaMark then Cherry Cobbler.  After the image was stamped, I sprinkled it with Heat & Stick Powder and heat set it just until melted.  I quickly sprinkled Crafty Sparkles on it and heat set it again.  Nice and sparkly!  The strip on the side was made with another of the stamps in Vintage Swirls.  The layers are Cherry Cobbler and the DP is from Paper Pizazz.  To finish the card off, I used a Provo Craft die to cut out the tag, stamped the sentiment from Ole St. Nick and tied a little knot with embroidery thread.

This card includes the following challenges:

The Lounge ~ OCLDT39 Sketch Challenge
