Out of the Box

Yesterday, I was able to participate in the Try a New Technique Challenge at SCS, Cutting "Outside the Box". I had a lot of fun with this technique. I used the Tree-mendous Love set from Our Craft Lounge. I used my Plain Heart Nestabilities as well as my Polka Dots QuicKutz embossing folder. The paper is Twitterpated from Imaginisce.

I colored the giraffe using Copic markers. I added some highlights with a white gel pen. Before taking the cardstock out of the die, I sponged some Bermuda Bay ink on the heart.

Did you know that you can participate in the you can participate in the you can participate in the Birthday Bash Challenges? My fellow design team member and sweet friend Heather posted super fun challenges starting yesterday over at The Lounge. Did you know that every month they have a Sketch Challenge and the winner gets to pick a free stamp set from OCL? It's true! Check out the OCL Sketch Challenge forum! Combine this with the other birthday party challenges for a chance to win $100.00 to spend at Our Craft Lounge! We hope you'll play along and help celebrate Our Craft Lounge's first year!

Great card. Out of the box seems a given with a giraffe neck.
