Lots, Lots, Lots, Lots...

Hey all! Wow, do I have a lot to share with you today. I can't ever figure out if I should do separate posts or everything in one. I'm assuming most of you like one post especially if you get e-mail or blogger alerts - less mail in the box. If you have an opinion please share...

Just a quick statement reminding you that all the new releases are available for purchase at Clear Dollar Stamps plus even more goodies, such as.... new Basic Grey in 6x6 pads AND 12x12 pads - wowee, matching brads, new stickle colors, and if you don't have time or don't know how to crochet, there are crochet flowers available at the store made by me :)

I've got a couple of examples to share with you. You've got your choice of white and natural for now and the flowers are approximately 1" in diameter.

This first card uses some Papertrey ink designer paper... thank you (you know who you are), its just beautiful and a Close to my Heart sentiment. The paper flower was cut in different sizes using my Cricut and the Mini Monogram cartridge with the natural colored crocheted flower at the center.

The first picture is more indicative of the color of the card and the flower.

Here's my 2nd card for you. What can I say, except that this turned out much different than I had envisioned. I was goign for a simpler look, but this is what I ended up with. I started with a stamp set from a couple of months ago called Fruity Fun. The just released set for this month called Tangy Trio works perfectly with this set. I also got to use the antiquing inks from Papertrey ink and I love them. Very smooth and quick to dry. I swiped the edges of my nesty as well as inking up the raised parts of my embossed cardstock. This flower is very white and I topped it off with some twine and a button. I love how it looks with my crochet ribbon too.

The flowers retail 3 for $1.99


I wanted to also let you know that there is a give away goign on over at Craft Critique. 3 lucky people are goign to get a Bow Easy... go check out the article and leave a comment. Looks pretty darn nifty!


And finally... I've got the cutest tutorial over at Clearly iStamp. This is the perfect accompaniment for any festivities that you might have for this holiday weekend and throughout the summer. Plus, change up the designer paper and use if for any event! Go check it out and let me know what you think.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great Wednesday!
