More Sneak Peeks Comin' Your Way!

And what fabulous stamps they are!!!! Clear Dollar Stamps is releasing 45 individual stamps and 2 stamp sets December 1st that you will find hard to resist! I know I did!!!!!! This card is made with the Flourish Cross stamp and I Prayed for You Today sentiment. How perfect they go together for a quick card. I stamped mine on PTI's Hibiscus Burst, layering with black and white. The pink dsp is also PaperTrey Ink's Friends Till the End, while the black and white piece is by Scenic Route. Embellishments include pearls and satin ribbon.
Say "hello" to Frankie the Frog. He's another individual stamp that makes me smile! I used my copic markers to add some color to Frankie - I cut him out and embossed him with my nestie then while it was still in the die sponged some cocoa ink around. I love this effect. Papers include regal rose, pretty in pink, wild wasabi, very vanilla and Nook and Pantry DSP by Basic Grey (can you tell I love Basic Grey??!!!). More satin ribbon and some large silver brads finish this card off.

Now this card uses the Cowboy Hat and Cowboy Boot individual stamps. I stamped them as my background (what, no DSP??!!) coloring them in with watercolor pencils. I had to add some stitching with my sewing machine as well as a few brads. The sentiment is from the set Howdy Partner which is cut out and embossed with my Nesties. I then knotted up some linen thread for a touch of somethin'. This and the frog card above measure 4.25 inches square. I love this size card because you can put it into an A2 envelope and not pay extra postage! You'd better check out some other fun projects by these talented ladies:
Also, for the month of December, Clear Dollar Stamps is offering the stamp of the month free with a $30 order instead of a $50 order! Woo-hoo! It is adorable....so keep checking back to see what the stamp of the month is for December!
