Clear Dollar Stamps "JUNGLE FEVER" Preview

Hi all!! It's the last day of previews for Clear Dollar Stamps. Yes, that means tomorrow all their fabulous sets are available in the store.
The second set I illustrated for Clear Dollar Stamps  this month is called Junge Fever.
The background was sponged with inks and I decided to use the palm tree as the background and then added the tiger with foam dots for dimension.
I also added some Diamond Glaze to the Plam Tree and also the black stripes on the tiger.

The same background was also stamped on the envelope along with sentiment "WILD"

Its Preview time at Clear Dollar Stamps

Hi all, today is the second day for the previews of the February New Releases at Clear Dollar Stamps.
One of the featured sets today is called "Praying Children" which is one of two sets I illustrated this month (I will share the other one on Sunday)

I decided to make a scene with this card and paper pieced the bed and the little boys PJ's.

I colored the rest of the image with Copics and then mounted the little teddy with foam dots and propped him on the edge of the bed.
I also stamped and heat embossed the sweet dreams sentiment on the circle at the side.

Butterfly Kisses

I made this using one of the new digital stamp images from Digital Delights. This little guys name is Bertie Butterfly. I used the pre-colored version and duplicated his body and attached it with foam dots.

For his antennae I used some gold florists wire and then glued his little red hearts to the top. The background circle and sentiment was made using the "Butterfly Kisses" sentiment from Digital Delights also.

I attached at both sides of Bertie some fabric flowers and found these sparkly pink lips which I added to the center

I entered it into the following challenges:

Daring cardmakers - Punch using holes
One stop Craft - Fancy edges/corners
Jacksonbelle - Bling
Humblepie - Bling
Flutterby Wednesday - Butterfly

Hope you enjoyed my card and have fun crafting!!

Lovin Rosie

I just cant get enough of these Easel cards!! They display your work so well!! For this one I used my Lovin' Ridley and Rosie Stamp set (available from Clear Dollar Stamps)

I used the "Cutie Pie Rosie Raccoon" stamp along with some of the hearts and the sentiment. Rosie was duplicated and then the second one cut out and attached with foam dots. I luv to do this as it really gives your card dimension!!

I made a small pocket on the inside to hold the matching gift tag. Thought is would be perfect for Valentines!!

Having a Blast

Hi all!! Hope your week is going great so far!!

This is a unique card that I made using one of my new releases from Clear Dollar Stamps, called Billy Blasts Off

The scene is created with a sponged background and then the images have beenheat embossed and colored with Copics. Billy has been paper toled with foam dots.

A friend showed us this tutorial from Kirstens blog and I just had to try it out!! What a unique way to display a card!! The little boxes would be great to fill with candy or trinkets!!

I stamped different sentiment from Billy Blasts off on all four sides. There are also drawers on all four sides too and I used stacked buttons to make the drawer handles.

As always the card is all hand stitched

I finished off by making a coordinating box. Instructions for the box were from my friend Cindy and can be found here

Billy Blasts Off is a great set of  18 stamps and you can see more samples of him here

A new card and a new sketch

A few things to share. The first being this card I made with my new "Pet Angels" set which I have illustrated for Clear Dollar Stamps. I have often looked for appropriate images to send to loved ones when they have lost their darling pet but never found anything. This set comes with a total of 22 stamps and can be used in so many ways.

I hand stamped the angel and colored her with Copics. The dog was stamped separately and then added with pop dots (the set also has a cat which you could use instead)

There are lots of sentiments. I added the "forever friend" and "paw" stamp

A peek of the coordinating inside
