OCL Sneak Peek Day 3 - Granny's Potion

It's WEDNESDAY - Happy Hump Day! *wahoo* we're half way to the weekend!!! Have you been having a good week? I've had a good and busy week.

So - Wednesday also brings about the last day of Sneak Peeks from Our Craft Lounge. If you've been checking out all the blogs posting the peeks, you'll have seen all 31 sets that OCL is releasing this month! If you haven't caught it all - or you want to look again, go to OCL's new BLOG and check out all the participants in the fun eye candy!

Today I'm showing you a card I made using the set Granny's Potion. I LOVE Granny - she is fun and very witty. Now she's celebrating Halloween!


One of the fun things I did on this card was something I saw my friend HB (Carol Halvorson) do - I punched out some stars and placed them on the base of the car. When I punched them, I did it in the same color cardstock as the surface I was putting them down on - so they made a subtle background pattern. That HB is brilliant!

Oh - the buttons! Buttons are such a fun embellishment. Well - I used Punk Purple Sparkly Fluff to cover the buttons - HOW FUN! They are fuzzy and sparkly!

To create the moon, I punched into a piece of cardstock using my circle punch - and then punched a little further over using the same punch. VOILA - a moon (crescent) shape! I covered it up in liquid glue and sprinkled Lemon Drop Crafty Sparkles all over it. Ooh-la-la!

I finished my card by coloring Granny with Copic Markers - and colored the stars and moons on her dress with atyou Spica Glitter pens. There is LOTS of SPAHKLE on this card! :)

TOMORROW - be SURE to come back and check out the HUGE BLOG HOP! OCL is giving away one of each stamp set from this new release. That means there are 31 NEW STAMP SETS up for grabs!
