Hey there!  I'm back with an Our Craft Lounge challenge card.  This week's (OCL51) theme is a color, brown and white.  Well I definitely have that one covered!  Oh my, that pink is BRIGHT!  More so than I thought it would be, but I think it turned out ok anyway.

A long time ago I read how to "go out of the box" with Nesties and I finally tried it.  I will definitely do it again!  All you have to do is stamp your image, position your Nestie on top of it and put little pencil marks on the inside rim next to your stamped image.  Then cut on the lines until you reach your pencil marks.  When you're ready to run it through your Big Shot, pull the cut pieces to the outside of the die (part will be on the top and part on the bottom of your Nestie).  Run it through your machine and voila' cuts everything but your stamped image.  So very cool!

This whole card was made with Neenah card stock and colored with Copic markers.  That adorable little giraffe and sentiment is from OCL's Tree-mendous Love stamp set.  It's a great set because it doubles up as Valentine's Day AND baby!  What gives this card a little pizazz (besides that cutie pie on the front) is the Crafty Sparkles.  All of the dark pink on the giraffe is sparkly.  The baby bottle/card is a Sizzix die so it doesn't get any easier than that!  The twine is from The Twinery and the button is from my stash.  The heart is popped up on Foam Squares.  Guess that's it.  It was a very quick card today.

Copic coloring:

Giraffe:  RV04, RV02, RV00, RV000  Hearts:  E37, E35, E34, E33, E31, E30, RV04, RV02, RV00, RV000    Top of bottle:  RV04, RV02, RV00, RV000, E37, E35, E34, E33, E31, E30  Bottle:  E30
