Clear Dollar Stamps - Sneak Peek #2

Howdy friends! Today is the last day of sneak peeks and then its a free for all. Tomorrow, all these fabulous stamps you've seen on the Design Team blogs will be available to purchase at Clear Dollar Stamps.

But, before we get to ahead of ourselves, I want to share the rest of my cards with you. This first set is one of those that you don't really want to have, but is just a fact of life. Sympathy cards are hard cards to make for friends and family, but its even harder without an appropriate sentiment to put on or inside a card. This is the reason that I'm thrilled with this new set called Words of Sympathy. The font is beautiful and the feeling behind each of the sentiments are perfect.

I chose white as my main color and accented with two shades of blue. My background was created with a Cuttlebug embossing folder and the ovals were cut with my nesties.

I also decorated the inside as well as adding another sentiment. Both work independently or as a pair.

{recipe} STAMPS: Words of Sympathy CARDSTOCK AND PAPERS: Outdoor Denim, Caprice Level 2 (Close to my Heart), White GP INKPADS:Outdoor Denim (Close to my Heart) ACCESSORIES AND EMBELLISHMENTS:Embossing folder, Oval Nestabilities

My next card also used the Words of Sympathy set but in a different color scheme. I random stamped my background and framed my sentiment with my long rectangle nestabilities.

{Recipe} STAMPS:Words of Sympathy CARDSTOCK AND PAPERS:Garden Green, white, baby pink (close to my heart) INKPADS:garden green, baby pink ACCESSORIES AND EMBELLISHMENTS:Long Rectangle Nestabilities, Papertrey ink Ribbon

My next cards were made using a new set called Sorry Charlie. Charlie just looks so sad here and definitely is sorry about something. I decided to color Charlie blue to go along with the matching sentiment. Paper is from Close to my Heart.

My next card also features the oh so cute Charlie, but he's sad for a different reason. He's sad becuase he misses you.
