OCL Blog Hop

If you've been to my blog much at all, you know how much I love the stamp sets by Our Craft Lounge! As an i {heart} papers DT member, I've really loved showing off their fun sets! I was floored when OCL's very own Cambria Turnbow asked if I would be interested in participating in today's OCL blog hop! Are you kidding?! What a delight and honor! I'm so thrilled to be part of this!

Don't you just love this new set Sun-Kissed?! So many fun summer images that work perfectly for making cards, invitations, and scrapbook pages. I had a blast playing with 'em. I think we're all ready for the warm, relaxed days of summer! How about a chance to win this set?

I colored this flirty sun using prisma color pencils in hot shades of pink, red, orange, and yellow, blending the colors with a stump and some gamsol. I used some olive green on the grill (we had an old green one when we were first married!), adding a bit of orange and yellow heat-wave underneath and also under the handle of the lid. I carefully trimmed around each piece and popped 'em up on dimensionals.

I shaded around the sentiment with oranges and yellows, bordering it with hot pink and old olive mats in graduated sizes, off-setting the center and accenting the edges and the center of the -o- with hot pink kaiser rhinestones.

I would tell you the name of this pretty designer paper if I knew it myself! How embarrassing! I have searched high and low in my traveling stash for information about it...usually I keep the strip identifying the manufacturer, but I have found nothing in all of my scraps so if you know, will you please tell me!? I am at my parents trying to help take care of my dad since his total knee replacement, so things are a bit topsy-turvy here! I'm sure once I'm back home I can just walk right into the LSS and find it!

OK...for a chance at this great stamp set you must leave a comment here...and then you can visit all these fabulous stampers' blogs to see the sets they are previewing! You have until Monday at noon when the winner will be chosen, so make sure your comment includes a way for me to reach you if you're the lucky one!
