OCL Sneak Peek - Holiday Cruiser



A little while ago, I was invited to participate in the Fall release of the Our Craft Lounge stamps by making a couple of samples, participating in tomorrow's blog hop, and giving away some yummy OCL blog candy - yep, that's right! I said OCL Blog Candy baby! Check back here tomorrow for all the deets :)




The set that I chose to sneak peek is called Holiday Cruiser and features some really famous and adorable holiday characters :) As you can see, Santa is on his way to deliver the goods via his trusty automobile as the reindeer are on holidays (somewhere warmer I can imagine *wink* ). His vehicle has be pimped by the elves with festive Christmas garland and shiny red bows and they have decided to accessories the presents this year.

I have coloured Santa with prisma colour pencil crayons with gamsol on kraft paper and added crystal effects, stickles and liquid applique for some mean fluff on his coat. This snow banks are torn paper that has been sponged and added an extra icy coat of stickles along the edges and the trees are scraps of card stock that have been cuttlebugged for extra texture.




Our Craft Lounge is releasing 31 new sets and will have been doing previews for the past two days. You can find out who is previewing each set here. Don't' forget to pop back tomorrow to see another sneak peek and get in on the blog hop candy!

These are the ladies that are previewing some fabulous sets today:
