Hello friends!

Twenty four.   Yup, that’s the number of new sets we are going to be sneak peeking for Our Craft Lounge over the next three days!  The OCL designers have been busy little bees.   There’s definitely something for everyone in this release!

Today I am giving you a peek of the new White Christmas set.   It was fitting that I was given this set to sneak peek as White Christmas was my mother’s all time favorite movie.   She passed that love down to me.   I’ve even been known to watch it in mid-July!


I went a little non-traditional with this.   I love the sentiment “snowflakes are winter’s butterfly”.   How unusual to have a butterfly on a Christmas card! 🙂   I thought I would go with some non-traditional colors, too.


Here are my deets:

Stamps: Our Craft Lounge’s White Christmas

Colors: Basic Black, Riding Hood Red, GP White, Kiwi Kiss

Ink: Tim Holtz’ tea bag distressing ink, white gel pen

Accessories: 1/2″ satin ribbon, red 1/2 pearls, sponge, label eight nestabilities, dimensionals, MS butterfly punch


You can find the new releases at retailers using this LINK.

 These fine ladies will also be sharing peeks of new sets!

    Holly, I love this!! Am always up for non-traditional Christmas colors. Was even thinking of doing black/red myself for my own cards. Thanks for showing it can be done and look so elegant.
