OCL Blog Hop!

Did you enjoy yesterday's sneak peeks of the soon-to-be-released OCL Valentine sets?  I'm sure your answer is yes, unless you haven't had the chance to hop yet!  If that's the case, be sure to scroll down to yesterday's post so you can see catch links to all four upcoming sets and what our design team has done with them so far!

Yesterday was a look forward to new sets, and today we are glancing back at some previously released sets that deserve a second look!  Be sure to leave a comment on every blog for the chance to win a free stamp set!
 


The set I'm sharing with you today, Sweet on You, is one that was released last November during my last month as a member of SCS' Dirty Dozen.  Here's a sketch challenge card that I made for that gallery, which had the theme of "In Touch with Texture."  I used Copic markers to color the strawberries, then made the chocolate glossy with some clear EP.  They looked almost good enough to eat!


Here's another Sweet on You card with some "calorie free" cake for a sweet friend!  This one is made with some of my favorite designer paper from October Afternoon.  The cake was stamped with Memento ink, colored with Copic markers and a clear Spica pen, then cut/embossed/matted with a nestabilities square and lacey square.  I used a layout that would showcase several of these fun prints, keeping things fairly CAS with only a button-tied red twill ribbon and tiny jewel for embellishments.  All of the papers were lightly sponged with distress ink to emphasize the warm colors and their contrast against the cool blue-green.

How would you like to win this fun set?  Just look at how cute it is, and what fun sentiments it includes!
