GD at Our Creative Corner


You probably don't remember but earlier this year one of my cards was selected to receive the Top Talent Award at Our Creative Corner and as the talent is unbelievable there, I was extremely honored.


In addition to the honor of their award I was also asked to be guest designer for this week. The theme is Wonderful Windows and is hosted by Holly Kean.
"Create a project that features a window cut out!"

I created this card using Spellbinders Labels 18 and stamps from Gina K Designs. I stamped my image and then off stamped a couple of times to get a lighter reflecting image. I cut the stamped piece and then mounted it to create a window pane effect. For the inside, I again off stamped the trees to give it a faded look and added a Christmas sentiment.


The challenges at Our Creative Corner are always exciting and fun and I enjoy joining them as much as I can....I hope that you will check out this great site and be inspired by their talented design team. Linda Couglin DT/OCC will also be joining us at Sugar Creek Hollow for our challenge this week as Guest Designer. I hope you will check out my card for that challenge as well and join in if you can. Be sure and check out my previous post this morning.

I couldn't decide what I wanted to do for this challenge so I created one other card and even though it is not posted at OCC, I wanted to give you a peek.


The window and flower pot is from a retired Stampin' Up set and that adorable bike is one that I just picked up by Kaisercraft. I love the brick embossing folder.


Now, hop on over to Our Creative Corner and take a look at the beautiful creations. And to the gang at OCC, thanks so much for asking me to be your guest designer this week! I am truly honored.

Both of your cards are absolutely fabulous Patti and we are so honoured to have you as our Guest Designer this week.
I love how you have created the reflected trees, it looks so effective being visible through the window, a great scenic image, and I love how you have followed the theme through inside the card as well.
Thank you once again for joining us this week at Our Creative Corner!!!

Great work on the window card - love the way you actually created the window pane effect with a snow scene outside - very clever. And the bicycle card is totally charming - love that bicycle and the window there is terrific too. So happy to have you on board as our guest designer this week.

Great job on both of your creations for the OCC challenge and congrats on the guest spot! I love the 'wallpaper' look from your first card, it really looks like it's in a vintage home on a winter day. Great job!

Patti,
I love both cards and congrats on the spot this week. The second one caught my heart.

Sharon said...

Patti, both of your window cards are gorgeous! I love them both. I really like the one posted, how it looks as if you are looking out over a lake. The peace, the simple beauty. And the one with the lace curtains and bike, is stunning, and adventurous.
Great job!
