CPS 181 Our Craft Lounge



"Our Craft Lounge (http://www.ourcraftlounge.com/) will be giving away 2 brand new stamp sets this week. One adorable Crafty Clear Set called Merry Moose, and a beautiful Crafty Cling Rubber set called The Art of Nature. Both sets are from our new 2010 Holiday/Fall CHA release and work great with any acrylic stamping blocks. Also included in your prize package, are two jars of our very own product called Sparkly Fluff in Rockstar Red and Cotton Candy Pink. Sparkly Fluff is super easy to apply with any liquid adhesive. It is applied very much like glitter ~ just color your image, apply the adhesive, sprinkle it on and tap off the excess. You don't even need to heat set it.

You can check out all of our newly released stamp sets on The OCL Blog posts from last week's Sneak Peeks! And the rest of our products can also be found at our website (http://www.ourcraftlounge.com/). Click HERE for a link to retail stores where our products are sold.
