A Snowy Sneak Peek Day

Wow, the snow is really coming down right now!!! Both boys are on a 2 hour delay for school, they'll be happy...when they wake up and find out!!!! Anyway, since it's quiet, thought I would show you some sneak peeks for two wonderful sets coming out February 1st at Clear Dollar Stamps. This first sample is a two step stamping set called Circle Somethings. The possibilities are absolutely endless with this set!!!!! I went with creating flowers with three of my images, punching them out with the 1 1/4" circle punch, while the others are simply the circles and punched out with a 1 1/8" circle punch. All six circles are popped up -- I love dimension! Colors used are Rich razzleberry, Melon mambo, Crushed curry and Kiwi kiss. The razzleberry ribbon and white brads finish it off. You really need to check out these blogs too for more fabulous ideas:
For my second sneak peek, I'm featuring the lovely verse Psalm 127:1a. I paired it with the stamp set Nice Neighborhood. I used my copic markers on the house and scraps of DSP from the scrap bin. What's so fun is these are very similar colors as our house!!! Ours isn't quite that dark of a brown but we have a great red door and two shades of green for trim and shutters! I punched out a scallop oval to use as a template for my clouds -- definitely a technique that still needs worked on!!! The yummy ribbon is from Clear Dollar Stamps, antique gold taffeta. I tied a tight knot into it and added the button over it with some linen thread. Oh, and of course I hit up my sewing machine for this one!!! Fellow DT member Sarah is also featuring this verse. She paired it with an adorable little birdhouse...go check it out!

Come back again tomorrow for more sneak peeks!!!

Those In colors are fabulous-- I used the Melon on mine too. Great idea with just using the sentiment across the bottom. (We had snow days earlier this week-- I was VERY glad when they went back yesterday!) :)

These are both wonderful Linda. I like the layout and springy colors of your first one, and the warm homefront of the second card.
Snow... sheesshh.. I will stop complaining about our cold. Atleast we don't have snow! :0)

Cute, cute, cute! The Circle Somethings card is such a great use of color! I don't think I've seen the Neighborhood set... I'll have to go search the store!
