Our Creative Corner Guest Designer


Guest Designer Badge

Hello everyone~

I have a special post today. Our Creative Corner challenge blog has invited me to be a guest designer for today’s challenge!! I am so thrilled and excited to play along with those talented OCC designers!! Hope you will play along too!

It’s Holly’s turn to host and here is what she said…

“As my first challenge, I'm inviting you to dig up your patterned papers and get inky by stamping right on them to create something totally new and different. Imagine the dramatic background a simple damask stamp on a stripped designer paper could create! Or grab a cute image stamp and your favorite patterned paper to make a never-been-seen-before focal point for your card!” – It is such a wonderful challenge, Holly!!

Please visit the OCC blog for more information about the challenge and how to play.


Here is my card.




I used the gorgeous stamp set, Dream Big from Verve Stamps. The flower and leaves were stamped on the KaiserCraft designer paper (Lilian - English Rose Collection), that was cut out with SB big scallop oval Nestabilities. The one flower and two leaves were stamped, trimmed and adhered on the scallop oval mat. The brown layer and the sentiment panel were cut with SB label 14. The card was designed with the cardstock and the same designer paper. To finish off, I embellished with the satin ribbon with pearl brad and the pearls.



Now it’s your turn to get inky!! Be sure to stop by OCC to see other designer’s creations too!!

Paper: rich razzleberry, soft suede (SU), heavenly white (PaperTemptress), designer paper (KaiserCraft)
