OCL blog hop with BLOG CANDY!

Welcome to another Our Craft Lounge blog hop. Have you enjoyed the sneak peeks of all the sets for the past three days? Well today you have a chance to see them all again and a chance to win ONE of the sets. To see what the rest of the amazing design team and special friends have come up for you, please see Our Craft Lounge’s own blog THE LOUNGE for all the links.

Now, I did say win one set, each blog is giving away a set but you are only allowed to win ONE TIME.

Alright, enough of my rambling and on to my card. GIVING THANKS is the set I have up for grabs today. I decided to make my card with a little bit of untraditional fall colors as i added in purple to my leaves. (I’ve never seen a purple leaf fall from my trees before.)  Image was colored with prismacolor pencils and blended with odorless mineral spirits. The bow and the acorns are layered and popped up and the entire image is popped up. I then bent the word “celebrate” a little (as this set is only in acrylic) to stamp around the half circle. I stamped the single acorn and colored him in with prismacolor pencils. I didn’t blend the pencils as I liked how it picked up the texture of the paper I used. This is also sketch challenge198.

The design paper is becoming one of my favorites and is DCWV Latte matstack.

Here is what the entire set looks like:

giving thanks

So would you like to win this set? Just leave me a comment about what you love about Fall and make sure you leave a way to get a hold of you incase you win, please. I will draw a winner on Sunday, Aug.9th at 9pm eastern time. Good luck and I can’t wait to hear your answers.  And to be fair, I’ll tell you what I like about Fall; I love the smell of fall, the leaves to jump in or walk in, the pumpkins, the colors, the bonfires. Basically I love everything about Fall.

ps. These sets will be released to retail and online stores only on Thursday, August 9th.  However, they will NOT be available on the OCL store just yet. To find a Retail or Online store that is carrying these sets, please go to FIND US at OCL site, click on the More Info button for the complete lists.
