I think I should post a warning, be advised, some really cute stamp sets are about to be shown!!! I am continuing to show you my sneak peeks for Clear Dollar Stamps new Jan. 1st releases. I think I said the same thing about the Winter Eskimo and Snowshoe wheel that I showed you the other day, this one is a must have too! Farm Critters and Critter Messages are the stamp sets and Farm Sounds wheel is also featured (with a neigh neigh here and a baaa baaa there). Piggy was brought to life with Copic markers. This was a color challenge for all Design Team members - Baja breeze, Close to cocoa, Taken with teal, and Groovy guava. I had found the guava piece in my stash of embossed pieces and knew it had to be used! The Farm Sounds wheel was inked in teal and stamped on the baja breeze layer. I then did some paper piercing along the side. The sentiment from Critter Messages was stamped in Chocolate chip and punched out. Some ribbon, dew drops, and primas and it's complete!!
My card is a sneak peek of a new set being released Jan. 1st by Clear Dollar Stamps called Farm Critters. I love animal stamps and this set is a must have! I used my Copic markers on the chickie, punched her out, added lots of dots, and layered her up! The yummy rust wide satin ribbon I've had for quite some time, it's just hard to cut into something so beautiful!!! The designer paper is from DaisyD's and perfect with the hen. I added some stitching with my sewing machine and brads around the punched out sentiment. Colors include Basic black, Really rust, Summer sun, and Very vanilla.
I've gotta get ready for work, but wanted to tease you with a look of what's to come!! Come on back now, ya hear, for more sneak peeks of this adorable set!!!!!

What a busy week at work!! Plus, I'm trying to get ready for stamp camp this Sunday. The only problem, by the time I get home in the evenings, I'm so tired I end up falling asleep instead of making cards and putting together the kits for stamp camp!!!
Just yesterday I received these wonderful Lockhart images thru Wish RAK and knew I had to make something right away. I found this sketch that was used, I think, on SCS for World Card Making Day. The Holly Cupcake was colored in using Copic markers and the berries were then glitzed up with a Spica glitter pen. The embossed white layer makes use of my favorite Snowflakes folder. The designer papers are by Cloud 9 and Adornit. The sentiment is by Verve Stamps -- I stamped it in black ink, punched it out with the word window punch then layered it on the small and large oval punches. It too is popped up along with the cupcake. I'll have to make up a few more of these images because we have several late December birthdays. Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful Thursday!

Here's another sneak peek of Clear Dollar Stamps' November release - this set is called Holly Builder and I knew from the moment I saw this set that I had to have it!!! So versatile and I love the fact that the stamps are clear so I can have perfect placement of the leaves and berries. I inked up the stem in chocolate chip, the leaves in old olive, and the berries are purely pomegranate. I had a 6 x 6 pad of Basic Grey's Eva that inspired the colors. Some hardware, ribbon, paper piercing and dimensionals completed this card. Thanks too for SCS and their weekly sketch challenges for the layout.
Keep coming back for more sneak peeks!! Then on Saturday you can start ordering up some stamps of your own from Clear Dollar Stamps!!!!! You're gonna love 'em!!

This week the SCS challenges are going pink and they are asking that all cards be donated to the Chemo Angels organization. I really am going to try to play along with each one, especially for such a wonderful cause.
