Final Day of Sneak Peaks from Clear Dollar Stamps




Last day of sneak peaks from Clear Dollar Stamps!! Tomorrow you can go shopping and buy all these fabulous new stamps!!

This card is made with the October Flower of the Month Stamp called Calendula (otherwise know as a Marigold!!) Isn't it a beautiful stamp!! I decided that the colors should be really fall looking!! Flower is edges with Stardust Stickles and I used Nestabilites to cut both circles surround it. I stamped the background with the words and the paper toled the actual flower. The sentiment added to the top has the month and the flower name!!

Fairy Tale Castle Stair Step Card



This is one of my favorite stamps that I have received for my DT work from Clear Dollar Stamps. When I saw it, I immediately thought of making a stair step card with it!!
The set is called Rosebud Castle and is designed by Shawne Arnold. I created the stair step card and then cut out green card in different shades to create hills. I stamped the castle three times, colored it with Copics and made it dimensional with pop dots. I decided to make a wavy path with the ribbon and stamped the cobblestone stamp that comes with the castle set onto the ribbon. I finished it off with stamped toadstools from the set and the sentiment Fairytale.
The back of the card has a small pocket with a matching removable tag to write your message on and it also comes with a handmade box to protect the card.
CDStamps Used: Rosebud Castle
CS and Papers: Bazzill 7 DCWV Doodle Around Stack
Ink: Memories
Markers: Copics YG13, Y06, G07, YR24, E37, YR07<>

Papertake Weekly Challenge & Creative Card Crew Challenge


My first card for my Guest DT spot over at Papertake Weekly. This weeks challenge is "Take You Pick Colour Combi". For this, you can choose any colour combi from the following mix to use on your card. The choices are pink, black, white, green grey and lilac. As many or as few as you want :).

I decided to use pink, geen and white. My image is Surprise Ridley from my digi range of stamps over at Digital Delights. I colored Ridley with copics and then covered him in Shimmerz. He is also popped with dimensionals to give him a 3D effect. Flowers were made from the New Spellbinders Flower Creations available from Clear Dollar Stamps.


My other fabby news is that I am also Guest Designer for Creative Card Crew this week:

The challenge was Polkadots, so here is my creation!!



I used my wee Gnome & Toadstool, which you can gert from Digital Delights, Lots of Polkadots too!!, the paper ribbon and toadstool are all relly dotty!! Card is pretty blingy too with lots of stickles and the toadstool is covered in Stickles.

What a fun challenge this was and hope you will all pop over to Creative Card Crew to join in with them this week too!!

Whirls of Wishes Ballerina Shaker Card - Clear Dollar Stamps and The Next Level Challenge


I thought it had been quite some time since I had made a Shaker card and when I saw this set from Clear Dollar Stamps I thought it would be perfect. The set is called My Little Ballerina and is soooooooo cute!! I also entered it into The Next Level Challenge using this weeks sketch. For the shaker I found these cute little mini glitter shapers in pastel colors which coordinated nicely with the image. I also used my spellbinders nestabilities, fabric flowers, ribbon, flatback pearls and a cuttlebug die for the sentiment which also came from the same set.

Gladiola Tri Fold Card - Clear Dollar Stamps








Happy Monday everyone!! Here is another card using one of Clear Dollar Stamps New July Releases, Gladiola - August Flower of the Month Clear Acrylic Stamps designed by Vicki Conquest.
I decided to use my tutorial for the 6 x 6 Tri Fold card. The background was stamped with the Gladiola Script background and then heat embossed with Distressed ink by Tim Holtz. The Gladiolas were hand colored with COPIC's and then I added some stickles to the edges of the petals. I finished the pic off with stamping the words Gladiola around the edges. Some ribbon and crystals finish off the front of the card.
