Introducing....Our Craft Lounge

I have a couple of cards to show you today from a BRAND SPANKIN' NEW Stamp company called Our Craft Lounge! I'm so proud of Cami (Stamp a Little Love Baby) & Joy (Joy of Stamping)... they have worked really hard, along with Kim & Marianne (I Like Markers) to make this day a reality!! This is what happens when amazing stamping talent meets amazing artistic talent! Congratulations girls, I couldn't be happier for you!!!!! And thanks for letting me play with the new stamps...what a treat!

Alrighty then, on with the cards! My first card features Bub The Beaver. I about flipped when Cami showed me this set. I LOVE beavers and this guy is just adorable! Fun to color...and yes, I used my Copic Markers :) ! It seemed only natural since Marianne drew Bub. He was born to be colored with Copics!!!
This next card was made with the Tree-mendous set! The girls designed these sets to have lots of fun accessory pieces so the opportunity for you to create fun scenes is endless! I kept this one pretty simple...just used the tree, the birdhouse and a sweet sentiment. This set is available in either crafty clear or crafty cling! I used the crafty cling (aka rubbah!) and they stamp bee-a-utifully!
You can find more samples of projects made with Our Craft Lounge stamps at these blogs today ~

When you make a purchase during Our Craft Lounge's Grand Opening, this Friday, Saturday & Sunday, November 14-16th, you get a PINK ticket! Next weekend they'll be drawing tickets for hang onto those cute little pink tickets. You just might win something really cool :) !!!
have a few more OCL cards to share with you, so be sure to stop by again soon. I also have a great tutorial to share with you for a Desk Calendar project that my friend Nancy Litterell shared with me. Lots of fun things to show you. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a Fabulous Friday :) !

~*WAHOO! Can't wait to see what the ladies at OCL are doing and all the fun projects bound to pop up during my blog-surfing breaks!*~

I must say that your Bub the Beaver card is BRILLIANT! Being a Canadian I will have to find room amongst my stamps for Bub.

TFS your talent!

Adorable, adorable, adorable:-) Your Copic coloring is outstanding too!!!! I have looked at OSL's sets and know at least 2 sets I want NOW! I am going to go with the rubber just because I am a rubber stamping kind of girl. I do have the clear blocks as they are not mounted on wood. Can't wait!!! TFS the great news and your awesome cards.
