IC164 & OCC challenge



Hello everyone~
It's rainy Saturday here in Texas. The tempreture dropped about 30 degree lower from yesterday :-0

Today's card is for SCS Inspiration challenge 164 (IC164) - Lang Calendars. Lang Calendars company carries beautiful calendars that you would love to give or get for Christmas gifts (I do!!)

皆さん、こんにちは~
テキサスは、雨の土曜日です。気温も昨日に比べて、15度も低い気温です(寒~)

今日のカードは、SCSのインスピレーションチャレンジ164 (IC164) - Lang カレンダーで作りました。Langカレンダーは、とっても綺麗なカレンダーを取り揃えていて、クリスマスギフトにあげたり、貰っても嬉しいカレンダーだと思います(私個人の好みですが)

I chose this calendar for my inspiration
私がインスピレーションに使ったカレンダーは、こちら。


I also combined today's Our Creative Corner challenge (OCCC) together. It was a great sketch from Jennifer. Thank you, Jennifer!

The stamps are "Friendship Flowers" from There She Goes. It's the one of the first sets Jessica designed and they are just fantastic!! (Love ya, Jessica!)
As you can see, my flower pots were positioned like the ones of the calendar. I colored them with Copic markers and some of the flower pots were monted with the dimensinals.
I try to keep the design simple and soft colors. However, simple cards sometimes take a long time to finish. It's almost 2 hours to finish the cards!! I'm such a slow stamper...;)

このカードでは、今日のOCCのチャレンジ(OCCC)も一緒にチャレンジしました。Jenniferさんからの素敵なスケッチが、今回のチャレンジです。Jenniferさん、有難う!

スタンプは、There She Goesからの「Friendship Flowers」を使いました。このセットは、Jessicaさんがデザインした最初のスタンプセットで、とっても素敵です!!
見手わかると思いますが、植木鉢をカレンダーの鉢の様に位置づけました。それをコピックマーカーで色を付け、鉢のいくつかは、ポップアップして貼っています。
全体的にデザインをシンプルにて、淡い色を使いました。でも、シンプルなのって、時々完成するのに時間がかかるんですよね~。これも、2時間ぐらいかかってしまいました(汗)私って、本当にのろまなスタンパーですね(笑)

Here is the inside
中はこんな感じです




Stamps: Freindship Flowers (TSG)
Paper: kiwi kiss, chocolate chip, very vanilla (SU)
Ink: dark chocolate (PTI), barely banana, kiwi kiss (SU), Copic markers
Accessories: ribbon, brads, Nestabilities



Have a wonderful day!!
それでは、素敵な一日をお過ごし下さい。
