Our Creative Corner: Bling and Nature

Wow it is amazing how fast every week goes by. And it is summer, when it is supposed to be more calm and relaxing! I think that everybody tries to catch up with a lot of stuff that we've left behind during the rest of the year, so there is not enough time, right?

Here we are with another challenge for Our Creative Corner. This week we have Paula hosting this fun challenge where you have to use rhinestones, stickles, glitter, etc along with items found in nature (plants, animals, etc). A bit of bling mixed with nature.

To create this card, I keep using the new Stampin' UP! Core'dinations Cardstock (Cherry Cobbler 127846) and the Stampin' Sanding System (129367). I love the distressed look that it gives to your card. I also used the new Fancy Fan Embossing Folder (127751). The flowers are from Stippled Blossoms (C 126747), and the sentiment is from Loving Thoughts (C 125845). If you noticed, I have used exactly the same stamp sets as yesterday, which gives you an idea of how versatile those sets are. I blinged up the center of my flowers with rhinestones, and used Dazzling Details (124117) for the leaves...I hope you can see it in the picture.

I am looking forward to seeing your creations this week. Hope to see you all there. Check out  the OCC blog to see what the DT has created for you!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. a little bit of bling goes a long way with a stamp that pretty... ideal placement! So many uses for this card too.... I love the sentiment, short one word ~ it goes a long way :-)

  2. Oh I love what you've done with the SU products. The sanding looks amazing and the combination of textures is perfect with that beautiful flower. I agree with Paula, perfect placement of bling! Gorgeous card here Lili. :)

  5. Hi Lili! I just received this stamp set with my last order and am so inspired to ink it up after seeing your beautiful card. That color combo is stunning and I really like the fun details you added to dress the card up in such a fabulous way. Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend! Hugs! :)
