Flyin' Birthday - OCL Sneak Peek

Hi! I hope you are having a fantastic week so far. We've had some GORGEOUS weather here in Massachusetts! It's been so nice to be able to open the windows, go outside without a jacket, and just see the sun!

So here we are - Sneak Peek Day #3 of the soon-to-be-released stamp sets from Our Craft Lounge. It has been so much fun being able to play with these images! Cami, Joy and Kimberly are super talented girls with a great sense of fun!

The set I used here is called Flyin' Birthday. Look at that cool hot air balloon. And the sentiment that goes inside it. ACK! There is just so much you can do with it. I chose to color and then make it SPARKLE (spahkle - Boston speak). Glitter is SO MUCH FUN! Here I used the Cosmo Crystal Crafty Sparkles by Our Craft Lounge. There are tons of great colors - and boy do they sparkle.

I thought it would also be fun to add some of that glitter to the card base to create a background. So I took some sticky tape and put it on some Bashful Blue cardstock - trimmed on either side of the sticky tape, and then poured the glitter over the tape. Ooh-la-la!!! To add some dimension, I also used a Cuttlebug folder on the top portion of the So Saffron cardstock. Put it all together and *mwah* - a seriously sparkly and fun card!

Be sure to come back to continue seeing more sneak peeks all week - and FRIDAY there will be a huge and fun blog hop (can you say serious eye candy) and GIVE-A-WAYS!!!!!!! You won't want to miss out.

Head on over to these girls' blogs to see some more fun sneak peeks:

And a few more:

Happy Wednesday - hope you have a beautiful day!
