Day Three Previews at Clear Dollar Stamps

Today I get to share with you another of my new Stamp sets I illustrated for Clear Dollar Stamps. This set is called Just Chillin'


A really versatile set of 13 stamps. The stamps can be used individually or together to create some really great scenes. For this card I used the north pole sign, 3 little penguins and the sledding polar bear on his wreath.


There are also 6 different sentiments to choose from this set!!
I colored the images with Copics and of course it wouldn't be a Christmas card without an lots of stickles!!


The set will be available from Clear Dollar Stamps from November 1st

Day Two Previews at Clear Dollar Stamps

Day Two of previews for the November release at Clear Dollar Stamps!! Today I have a couple of sets to share with you!! and some challenges entered too!! So be sure to scroll all the way down!! I'd hate for you to miss anything here!!

I have a couple of new sets out from my Louby Loo Creations for Clear Dollar Stamps and the set I am previewing today is called Billy and Maggie Carolers!! (link will be active on the 1st!!)

I made this one using a masking technique and I actually managed to take pics of the process!! Soooooooooo I hope to share with you a tutorial on this in the next few weeks!!


The set comes with 4 different sentiment choices. I used "Sing a Joyful Song of Christmas" and added inside a little brass bookplate which I secured with red brads.


I colored the images with Copics and added some liquid applique to the trim of Maggies Dress and Cape. As always with my Christmas cards I had to apply a touch of stickles!!

For this one I stamped the images twice and colored them with tombow markers. The images have been raised with foam dots to create dimension. I dont know if the photo shows it really well but the images have been painted over with Shimmerz and they really sparkle!!


I created the barn using one of My Cuttlebug folders and went over the raised part with markers!! Sentiment which comes with this stamp set reads "Away in a Manger"

Freebie Friday at Digital Delights


Managed to get in card this week using my latest illustration for Digital Delights Freebie Friday


As you can see I called him Mr Christmoose!! He comes with the sentiment too!! The great thing about Digital Stamps is their versatility to resize!! I decided to make the sentiment bigger and then place Mr Christmoose on to of the two OO's. I have made his legs bend by placing some foam dots on his shoes and lifting them up a bit!

The inside of the card has a pocket to hold a gift card and I also placed Mr Christmoose to make it look like he was coming out of the pocket!!

I have entered this into the following challenge

Ghost Billy & His Balloon Bats - Freebie Friday at Digital Delights!! and a lot of challenges!!

UPDATE!! - JUST FOUND OUT THAT THIS CARD HAS BEEN FEATURED ON SNR - CARD UNIVERSE THIS WEEK!! Thanks so much Cheryl!!

Hi all!! Just wanted to share with you a card made using my newest Illustration for our Freebie Friday over at Digital Delights!!


The image is called Ghost Billy and his Bat Balloons!! I printed him out twice and colored them both with Copics!! I then edged his ghost sheet with Stickles!! The first layer was cut using my circular nesties and then the second Billy!! was added using my pop dots. I also did this with the bats!! This gives the card great dimension.

I used my Cricut to cut out the word BOO and adhered it to the card front!! I also used my new Martha Stewart Loopy Punch, which I think is sooooooooo cool!!, and then finished off with some ribbon and crystals.

I also used my loopy punch inside and used my Cricut again for the inside words!!

I have also entered the card into the 11 following challenges:

Papercraft Planet - Sketch
2 Red Bananas - use Purple, Black and  Orange
Whimsy Stamps Challenge - Use punches or die cuts
My Time to Craft - Quick and Cute
