Glitter in the Wind


Happy June! I have some exciting news to share with you today! Last month, I was contacted by Kendra Wietstock at Our Craft Lounge and asked to be a Guest Designer for the Summer! So for June, July and August you'll be seeing some great OCL procjects here on my blog as I spend some time playing around with their fun stamp designs, and getting a little Sparkly Fluff all over me! Yay!

For my card today, I decided to play along with the Design Team Sketch challenge for this week. I really loved this sketch, and was so glad to see that Holly used her Labels 4 Nestabilities on her sample card! It inspired me to get my Labels 4 out and blow off the dust! This stamp set I used is definitely going to be one of my favorites.... it's called Dandy Days, and I just the whimsical blooms and the sentiments that come in this set!
I colored the images using Tombow markers, then huffed and stamped onto cream cardstock. Then, using some Glossy Accents (because my Quickie glue pen has dried up!) I placed tiny dots all around the dandelions and added some Lemon Drop Yellow Sparkly Fluff, so that my dandelions truly are like "glitter in the wind!"
You can see the "fluff" in this picture, but the sparkle was harded to capture! I paired my image with some October Afternoon papers, and a ribbon from Creative Impressions.

So I hope you like my latest creation using Our Craft Lounge stamps and products and hope you'll stay tuned for more over the summer!

Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!

Wow Tammy what a beautiful card - I went straight to the store but unfortunately it would have cost me $53 to get this set shipped to me here in the uk :(
I will have to settle for looking at this and all the other fantastic projects you are sure to thrill us with over the summer x
