OCC - Try a New Technique - Side Step!

Welcome back to another challenge from Our Creative Corner! This week, the amazing Linda Coughlin has us stepping outside our comfort zone and trying something that we've never done before!!

This is such a great challenge for me as I rarely try new things! I'm one of those people that tends to order the same thing when I go to a favorite restaraunt....BORRRRING!!! I think that it's because I'm afraid of wasting good money on something I might not like...which in itself is kind of weird because there are VERY FEW foods that I don't like!
Anyway...I digress!
I decided to create the Side-Step-Stair Fold card that Holly featured for TLC257 on Splitcoast a few weeks back! I'm glad I did as this turned out quite nice although it was hard to photograph due to the different depths (and my lame-o photography skills!)

I hauled out some flowery there's something I haven't done in a looooong time!! This set from SU! is long retired...I'm still not sure why I chose it...maybe because of the butterfly! It was nice to just stamp and cut...not really any coloring here although I did use my aquapainter and some reinker to color the flowers up a bit! I also added a little sparkle with my glitter pen!

So how's about you step out of your box today and try something you've never done before! Be sure to leave your creation back at the OCC using Mr. Linky and if you upload to SCS use Keyword OCCC!

Thanks so much for stopping my today!


  1. Oooohh, this is fabulous, Jocelyn! I haven't had the nerve to try a stair step card, but I think you have inspired me to make a run at it. Wonderful colors and I love that felt ribbon, which I have but never think to use - LOL!! Great combination of images and sentiment! You rocked this challenge!!


  2. This was another technique I thought I might try, but I changed my mind at the last minute. YOur card is terrific, Jocelyn!

  3. Rich and beautiful! Wonderful side step card.

  4. This is gorgeous, Joycelyn! (love that stamp set) I've seen several of these stair-step cards but I especially love the oval that you added. Very nice, Joycelyn! All these new techniques are making me want to try them...I suppose that's the point! Have a great weekend!
