Play Ball!


Hello everyone & Happy 4th July to my American Friends

It’s OCC challenge time over on the Our Creative Corner Blog. This week the challenge is a color challenge, we were to use the colors red, white and blue to create our cards (this is such a popular color combo at this time of year … wonder why hehe!)

I found this fun digital designer paper from Gina K Designs … I had to play around with my colors to get the blue paper the color I wanted as it was coming out way to dark on my printer … probably something to do with my printer. I know I will be using this designer a lot more in the future. You can find this designer over on the Gina K Designs Stamp TV site here. And even better is that it is free!!!!! Don’t you just love free stuff!

I thought these colors would go great with The Greeting Farm’s Quarterback Ian … I have stamped him twice, the second one I cut out and mounted over the top of the main image panel. The sentiment was created using the JustRite Stampers alphabet. I also used my inverted scallop circle nestabilities to create the bottom layer of my circle.

The layout used here is the Mojo89 sketch challenge from a few weeks back.

occ-play-ball-in-wmHere is the inside of my card. The sentiment was created using my computer. I used my new EK Success wave dot border punch to create the border above the red striped designer paper. This is one of my new fav border punches … notice I said one of … cause I like so many of them hehe!

Don't forget to check out the rest of the OCC Designers cards over on the OCC Blog.

Oh Frances I love your patriotic card (and thank you). I adore the way you trimmed the inside of the card. Those red and white stripes just sing to me. Thanks so much!
