1-2-3-4 Challenge

Hello ladies!  We're excited to have you with us this week at Our Creative Corner!  Thanks to all of you that joined us last week for Sarah's Distress to De-Stress challenge.  We will announce the design team's top picks on Wednesday.  Until then, join us for this week's challenge!

I'm Kristin from LilyBeth Boutique and I'm your hostess this week!  I'm new to the OCC Design Team and this is my first time hosting a challenge here...are you ready?  This inspiration for this challenge comes from my 2 year old daughter, she recently learned to count 20.  However for the longest time, she couldn't get past 4...or wouldn't...  Hence the 1-2-3-4 challenge!  Here are the parameters:
  • Use ONE pre-patterned paper - not stamped, but you can of course stamp on it.
  • Limited to TWO layers - What is a layer you ask?  Your card base is NOT a layer, neither are embellishments.  Paper makes up the layers - mats would be considered a layer.
  • Use THREE different stamped images - your sentiment would be one of your images if it's stamped.
  • Limit yourself to FOUR embellishments - they can all be the same, or 4 different, it's your choice!
Now, here are some fabulous cards to inspire you1  First this is from our Guest Designer this week, Eva Costigan from Stamp S'more .

Isn't that great?  Here are more gorgeous inspirations from our Design Team:

Vicki Burdick-It's a Stamp Thing

Linda Coughlin - The Funkie Junkie

Wendy Janson - It's All About Stamping

Diane Gilbert ~ My Little Stampin' Spot!
