WooHoo Day 2 Clear Dollar Stamps Sneak Peaks!

I have three wonderful sets to show off today! Yeah!! I am showing you three more beautiful sets today that will be offered tomarrow at Clear Dollar Stamps. The first set is called "You're Eggs-traordinary". With this set you will receive three totally different eggs and four different sentiments. Both easter and regular sentiments.

My second card today is showing off the set titled "Scriptures of Hope". We all could use some hope in our lives. Everyone needs to be uplifted. This is a set of 10 different stamps. Six different verses and four different smaller words to make different sayings. The card below is using one of the scriptures.
The last set I am showing off is the Stamp of the Month set. This set is called Flower Bunny. This set could be yours free with a purchase of $50.00 or more. This set comes with eight different stamps. The bunny below, a carrot, and six sentiments.

Sk8er Dude from Tellen's Place

Totally Rad! Do you know a sk8er? This great image is from Tellen's Place. This week they are hosting a male challenge. I knew this was the image I wanted to use.

Over at Crafty Creations Challenge they wanted to see warm projects this week. Being from Iowa skateboarding is only done in the warm summer months. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the weekend!!



A bright Thank You

Oh My! Did you ever make a card that just about put you over the edge? Well, this one did for me! I can NOT do simple, clean, crisp!! I just can't! I have spent more time on this card than I have on a card in a long time. You should see my desk - what a mess! I love my life, house, work, etc all being uncluttered but my cards - the more clutter the better! Now I know my style for sure! =) I totally love this Thank You sentiment from Clear Dollar Stamps. It is perfect for a fancy card or for a clean, crisp, and simple card (if you can manage to make one!).
The layout for this card came from Get Sketchy Challenge. At Creative Prompts 4 U they wanted to see bright colors. Then over at Sisterhood of Crafters they have an anything goes challenge this week. Thanks for checking out the hardest card I think I have ever made. Know that this will be the last clean, crisp, and simple card I will ever make!! =)

Patchwork Heart

I loved the idea of this card. The verse reads "Let not your Heart be troubled." with the patchwork heart.

It is called Let Not Your Heart. The patchwork idea came from Creative Inspiration Challenge. At Creative Cottage Challenge and Stamptacular Challenge they both wanted to see shaped cards.

You're The Best

I'm not a pastel person at all but I just had to do it. =) The sentiment is a new one from Clear Dollar Stamps it was just released this month and it sure is a fun one for a friend card. Not the same old, same old. The sketch is from Twisted Card Sketch but they not only wanted the sketch they also wanted to see die cuts. At Crafts 4 Eternity they wanted to see blue.

Dorothy in Red?

I tried hard to color this Diva Dorothy in blues but just couldn't bring myself to do it. Red is my favorite color so that explains the red with this poor Dorothy. This super cute image came from Tellen's Place and this week they are having a ribbon challenge. I wove the ribbon through the punch but it just didn't do enough for me so I tied some ribbon knots. At Wee Memories they are all hosting a ribbon challenge.

The sketch is from Sketch Saturday Challenge. At Paper Sundaes they wanted us to use our favorite challenge so I choose the #25 challenge white plus one color - red (what else). Finally at Stamp Insanity they wanted us to let it all hang out. Well, mine is hanging over the edge of my card. =) Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon!

This month they are releasing four different sets and believe me you will "need" them all! =) The stamp I am showing off today is part of a set called "Rose Bloom".

The "Love" I used being one of them. Over at the Clearly iStamp blog they will be showing all the sets available starting today.
