Sneakin’ a Peek with Our Craft Lounge!

Published by at 2:00 am under Our Craft Lounge,Tex's Tips

Welcome to the Thursday sneak peeks from Our Craft Lounge!    I’m here to share a  sneak peek with you today for one of the 11 brand new stamp sets from Our Craft Lounge, “Pretty & Pampered”.  

It’s been a long time since I’ve wanted to make a shaker card, but I just “had to do it” when I saw this adorable set!   Check out (click)  the little pic on how little coloring this involves … seriously quick and easy!   

After making & filling the shaker itself, it’s time to add a few simple Crafty items add a little bubbly pizazz.   Microbeads were combined within the shaker.  Tex’s Tip:  Here’s where an itty bitty funnel comes in verrrrry handy … truly!  Mine is from a 3-set purchased years ago, and the smallest is my most-used here in the studio.  The bubbles along the tub-top are glistening with Crafty Sparkles Chunky Crystal glitter.  I also altered the large clear rhinestones on 3 of the card corners by coating them with the chunky glam.   Even a few of the “bubbles” on the dry pressure embossed layer have some of the glitz, but only after this layer was spritzed with a mixture of Perfect Pearls + water in a Mini Mister for a sweet coating of pearly shimmer!  And of course, aren’t cozy fluffly slippers and a soft & cozy robe the perfect way to continue the relaxation after a soaking bubble bath?  That’s where you’ll need your Sparkly Fluff from OCL. 

I hope you’re enjoying the OCL sneak peek hop!  Please remember that winners will be drawn from those who leave comments along the way each dayYou could win some brand new stamps with a little luck!  Tomorrow wraps it all up with our official blog hop, and the big reveal of the stamp sets up for the winning!   All details will be readily available at The Lounge each day.
