Shabby Chic for OCC

For this week's OCC challenge Sharon Wheet, our hostess, wants us not to forget old times, so the challenge's theme is to create a project in a Shabby Chic style. She also describes Shabby Chic style as a style generally characterized by a time-worn look achieved by inking and distressing. There are layers of softness achieved by the use of ribbon, lace and crochet trim. Femine embellishments are items as buttons, pearls, glitter, and other sweet embellishments.

I created my card with a lot of the items named above. I love that style but sometimes it is hard for me to achieve it. I am happy with the way this card came out, of course that I couldn't do it again just like that. I used a lot of the new goodies featured in the Spring Catalog and here they are:
- Hearts a Flutter stamp set( W129249, C129252)
- Hearts a Flutter Framelits dies (130159)
- Artisan Embellishments Kit (129328)
- Tea for Two DSP (129311)
- Sycamore Street Ribbon & Button Pack (Sale-A-Bration) (130812)

This is all for today. Thanks a lot for stopping by and I hope I inspired you to participate in the Our Creative Corner challenge. Check out the OCC blog to take a look to the awesome creations the DT has prepared to keep your juices flowing.

Have a wonderful weekend! Happy stamping!

  5. Hi Lili :)
    I love SU! products and have a household of them and I think what you've done to show off the new products are just AWESOME! You certainly couldn't tell that you genre choice isn't shabby chic because you've perfected it here. The colors, textures, layout and vintage distressing and tearing of the bg papers all looks so amazing together. Beautiful job on this challenge and extremely inspiring!
    Hope you have a terrific week.
