Artist of the Month at Our Craft Lounge

Hello! Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

This is a start of another awesome challenge at Lollipop Crafts. It's a recipe (3 stamps, 2 patterned papers, and 1 embellishment) challenge this week, hosted by our lovely Alanna.

You are probably looking for that on my cards. LOL Unfortunately, I don't have a Lollipop Crafts creation to share today. Instead, I have two Our Craft Lounge cards to share!

Why Our Carft Lounge? Well, just as my post title says, I am Artist of the Month at Our Craft Lounge! LOL I am thrilled! I was super duper excited when I received the invitation! Some of my OCL cards will be featured each Monday in May. That's five Mondays! LOL

Okay so on to my cards....

For this card, I used this cool bicycle stamp from the Out for a Spin set. I tell you, I am in love with this NO COLORING technique! LOL Recently, I love using doilies too. What's up with that? LOL

I added a little cotton candy pink sparkly fluff on the basket of hearts. If you have never tried sparkly fluff, you should! They are fun and cool! You can find some HERE.

I also used some of my seam binding ribbon and my handmade stick pin...available at my Etsy Store.

For this card, I used the same bicycle from the Out for a Spin set. I stamped and colored on kraft this time. I don't color on kraft paper often. It came out pretty cool, no?

I also tried chalk colored pencil on this card. I distressed the edges with it...light blue. Sentiment is from the same stamp set.


Well, that's all for now. I will have more OCL cards/projects to share next Monday!

Have a great one everyone!
