Last night while perusing some of my favorite blogs I came across a new (to me) digi stamp
company called The Ocotpode Factory, you can find
these fabulous stamps here.
I was so inspired that I snatched up a couple and got to playing!
I am entering this fun birthday card into their challenge
which is "Words" you can find that challenge here
I am also super excited about the Hard Core Crop that's being sponsored by co'ordinations
you can find all the Crop challenges here.
This card is being entered in the Recipe challenge being hosted by Andrea
her recipe is akin to chocolate chips cookies,
(from her posting)
BROWN SUGAR - Page must contain some type of Core'dinations Kraft or Kraft Core (Tim Holtz collection) cardstock, OR you may use any color of Brown Core'dinations cardstock that you may have on hand! (I used the kraft core)SUGAR - Page must contain some type of Glitter, Embossing powder or Bling. (I embossed the sentiment, and I then sprayed it with sparkly mist!)
CHOCOLATE CHIPS - Page must contain Polka Dot embossing, (either Tillie or Jillian Spotted Core or Core cardstock that is embossed with a dotted folder). (I embossed a scrap piece of core paper and then I distressed it!)
CHOPPED WALNUTS - Page must contain some "distressing technique". (well it didn't show up very well, but I distressed the edges of the kraft paper, and I also added distressing to the raised embossing on the heart and the polk a dots!)
Here is my close up of this fabulous digi!
I wanna send a shout out to my good friend April, it's her birthday!
And this fun creation is for her!
