More OCL Sneak Peeks!

I hope you are enjoying getting to see some gorgeous creations with stamps from OCL's holiday release!  Yesterday I was blown away by what my friends and design team mates created!   I'm sure today will be equally amazing!

Today I am previewing a set called The Art of Nature.  If you love to color, then you will adore this set!  There are quick and easy images or more detailed ones, and they're all gorgeous!

My first card is simple and rustic, with warm, country colors from a Kaisercraft 6 x 6 pad, another CHA new product preview.  I am so excited that Kate from i {heart} papers will be carrying Kaisercraft products!  Because this sentiment alludes to quieting your spirit, I deliberately kept the embellishments very understated, tying the sentiment on with a strand of jute thread.  This card would work equally well for a guy or a girl, don't you think?

My second card, although also very simple, is elegant and definitely feminine. This image took only a few minutes and a small handful of Copic hues to color.  It features Basic Grey Capella designer paper, a nestabilities oval image panel, pearls and a pretty crinkle crepe bow.

Remember to comment for your chance to win a free stamp set!  You might want to review the rules (see yesterday's post) before visiting the blogs featuring today's peeks.
