Clear Dollar Stamps Sneak Peeks #4

First things first!!! Oh my gosh... I was writing up my post and realized that I have made a huge omission in all my previous posts. Please, please go visit Linda Borneman and check out all her sneak peeks. I have no idea how I managed to omit her from my lists each day and I want to profusely sent my apologies to Linda, my good friend. Shame on me... you will be completely doing yourself a disservice if you don't go visit and leave her some love.

So I'll try to get it right today :) Good morning friends. Wow, its day four of sneak peaks and that means all the new release stamps will be available first thing tomorrow morning on June 1st, but before we get there, there are just a couple more stamp sets to take a peek at. You know the routine. Head on over to Lori's blog to see the full reveals and lots of Candy's fabulous creations. Here is the list of the last sets to be revealed: Pretty Perches and the June Stamp of the Month.

I'll be showing you two cards made with the Pretty Perches set. This set is a great one and I'm sure that you will love it just as much as I do. I attempted a different look for me, but I wanted something that was a bit more distressed and shabby looking. I'm not sure if I achieved the right look, but I like how the card turned out anyway. I inked up just about every edge that I could.

For my second card, I wanted a lighter springy look and I thought this paper from TaDa Creative Studios was perfect for it. Since I was going with a spring theme, I decided to use two additional sets to create my sentiment - Card Categories and Card Categories Too. I use these two sets quite frequently and love them.

Don't forget to stop by these lovely ladies fabulous blogs for even more eye candy:

Katie, you are too funny! And too sweet! LOL

I love your Pretty Perches samples! Especially your distressed, shabby chic one! It really compliments the pretty birdcage and bird! And your Spring-y card is so sweet, light and just beautiful! Love them both!

Both of your samples are wonderful, but I LOVE the shabby look to your first sample! The dp looks like wallpaper. . .so awesome ;D

Katie, I enjoyed seeing both of your cards.they are both so pretty and so different. Seeing your cards made me think of my birds and so I had to share photos and stories about them on my blog today.
