OWH NSD VCMP continues...


Continuing with the OWH VCMP2013 in celebration of National Scrapbooking Day, I've played along with Challenge #3 being hosted by Sandy Allnock. Her challenge is to create a "romantic card" and use one of the tutorials on the OWH Pinterest page.
I used some SB heart dies, adding a SNSS sentiment and a Darice ef for the background. I added some Hero Arts hearts bling and the tutorial I used was the "no fail ribbon" technique which anchors the ribbon to prevent it from slipping. This was quick and simple to create and I think it works well for a romantic card.

I haven't done any scrapbook pages for a while, but I did use left-over scraps from cards I made recently, so hopefully that works for challenge# 4. Nancy is our host for this challenge and she wants us to create a card with scraps left over from a scrapbook layout, using a scrapbook sketch. I chose this sketch from Page Maps...


I started by stamping a Hero Arts/Studio Calico background stamp on white and black card stock, embossing with white ep on the black, and clear detail on the white. I embossed the black horizontal panel with an ef from the CB decorative tiles set, and added some punched elements from SU!'s Mosaic Madness stamp set. I added mini brads to the centers to anchor them and added a punched border with a SU! fancy scallop punch. Since I had portions of the black and white panels left, I made a 2nd card using red elements instead of teal and came up with this....


I hope to wrap up the remainder of the challenges as time permits, so thanks for stopping by, and hopefully I'll see you real soon!

They are all wonderful, but I think my fave is the 1st one, which is so simple and detailed at the same time!. I LOVE that embossing!!

Perfection on all three! Love that first card - the embossing folder is gorgeous and must check out the no fail ribbon!
Love the next two also - great design and DP!
Hope you're having a good weekend.

You did an amazing job on this challenge Carol! I'm going to have to try it again with an 8.5x11 layout. Maybe I will have an easier time with it. LOL

Beautiful job on the photo card too. What a touching story and I'm with you in believing it was a sign to you.
