Can You Believe It??!!

First of all, can you believe the new year is just around the corner? And that means sneak peeks from Clear Dollar Stamps!! This card is by our very own DT Leader Laurie Wilson called Critter Tales. So many adorable images and sentiments - check out the stamp sheet of what is all in this set on Lori's blog. I knew right away I wanted to use this flamingo image so I stamped it up and colored it in with Copic markers. I cut it out and embossed with a Nestabilitie, then while it was still in the die sponged around with So saffron ink. I love that effect! Other colors include Bravo burgundy, Pretty in pink, Mellow moss and Very vanilla. The DSP is Sugared by Basic Grey. Of course I had to do a little sewing...since I don't sew clothes anymore I figured I might as well sew cards!!!!! The embossed layer made use of an embossing folder which I then sponged over with some Regal rose ink to make it pop. Embellishments are the funniest part of any creation so I pulled out two Velvet stitched blossoms by Maya Road, ribbon, a Martha Stewart punch, and some self-adhesive pearls and I was "tickled pink!" You really must check out some of the other DT members' creations, they are fabulous:

Now this sweet set is by Shawne Arnold and called Loving Ladybugs. A great set for Valentines Day, Anniversaries, or to simply say I Love You. These cute little guys were colored in with copic markers, cut out and embossed with the Nestibilities, then some sky and grass were sponged on. The DSP is by Cosmo Cricket, a variety pack I've had for quite some time that the front cover was ripped off so I have no idea what line it's from! The bottom of each sheet was shaped like the red piece on the left-hand side of the card (though I would like to take credit for creating that shape, I can't!!! LOL!!). Other colors include Black, White and Saffron. Once again some ribbon and my favorite little pearls and I'm done! Do check out these blogs for more fun creations:
