Blog Hoppin’ Blossoms & Our Craft Lounge!

Welcome, welcome, to the official Our Craft Lounge Blog Hop!  At last we get to show you the new release sets that are available for your creative delight!   (And remember, you could win a brand new stamp set!) 

First, here’s the hop scoop:  

  • Comments from all sneak peek posts and today’s blog hop posts will be entered in the random drawing for one of the chances to win a new stamp set.  Contest ends at midnight on Saturday, Feb. 26th.
  • A winner will be chosen from each OCL designer’s blog, so you have lots of chances to be a winner!  I’ll announce my winner here on Sunday afternoon, and the complete list will appear at The Lounge.
  • Pssssssst!  I’ll need your email in the event that you win.  🙂

I just “had” to get outside for this photo … even though the winds were surely carrying leaves & more up here from the Gulf of Mexico!  I had to wait for the winds to take a little breath/pause for a moment here & there … but it was warm, and I was determined

The dimensional blossoms are all from the new “Build a Blossom stamp set.   This set includes a bountiful variety of blossom elements and leaves that are sure to keep your stampy floral urges busy indeed!

My color palette comes from the SCS Color Challenge, CC311, this week, using Always Artichoke, Perfect Plum, and Rose Red.   I was hoping to make the flower centers “stand out”  a bit, so I made them by coating clear buttons with Glossy Accents, followed by a glitzy layer of Crafty Sparkles Chunky Crystals.   Needless to say, I was wearing my own “sparkles” after the process!   😉   

>>>  And here’s the entire Build a Blossom set!  I’ll be giving this set away to the lucky winner randomly selected from all posters on my sneak peek post from yesterday, and from this post as well.  It could be you!!

Remember to visit the rest of the OCL designers who are peeking today and increase your chances of winning some new stamps!  Here they are, ready with more stampy inspiration:
