OCL #48 - Valentine’s Tree


It’s Friday so that means it’s time for another Our Craft Lounge Challenge.  Keeping with the fresh ideas, today’s challenge is a SUPPLY CHALLENGE, using two different ribbons or trims on your card. Here is a picture to inspire you:


I loved Tree-mendous Love when Our Craft Lounge came out with it and can’t seem to stop using it!  This time I used the tree, a birdhouse and saying from the set. Used copics to color the image and layered it onto brown. I then added a brown rick rack trim around it and brown/cream polka dotted ribbon underneath it with another big bow using the bow easy. The green is cuttlebug’d and the rest is design paper. I couldn’t resist adding some heart brads to the bottom of my image panel. The layout is sketch 315 from SCS.


Did you know if you play along with us at The Lounge You can even WIN A PRIZE – any one stamp set of your choice made by Our Craft Lounge. ONE WINNER will be selected for each MONTH. On the first of each month, we will select a winner for the previous month. This means that you could have four or five weeks to be able to participate. You can participate as many times as you would like. So head over The Lounge to see the rules. Can’t wait to see your creations!
