Clear Dollar Stamps Sneak Peak #1

Well friends... its that time again. Lots of exciting new stamps at Clear Dollar Stamps are going to be released in just a few days. Today, you will find sneak peeks of these following stamp sets:
  1. I A-door You
  2. Hockey Time
  3. Romans 8
  4. The Grind
Full reveals can be seen on Lori's blog - Clearly iStamp and I'll have a list of the other DT members that are having sneak peeks today listed below.

I am lucky enough to share two sets with you today - I a-Door You and The Grind. If you didn't notice, the I a-door you is another super cute pun set. For my first item, I created a cute little notecard or tag. It just depends on how you want to use it. The main stamp image (the door) is a great size so I was able to stamp it and cut it out and have a great little card. I didn't do it, but I really imagined it as a super cute tag to attach to any of those canned or jarred fruits and vegetables that you made over the summer.

If you look closely you can see that I stamped the jars on the envelope behind the little notecard. I also did cut out the window on the door part too.

I colored it using my copics and did a one coat job. I like the slight difference of color that one coat leaves.


My next item using this set is a traditional sized card and once again, I used my copics to color in my image. I love this can and flowers. When I was little we used to have a door that was split in half and could be opened with just the top half. This door reminds me of that one.

I achieved the look on my door panel by stamping in Memento Tuxedo Black after I had colored with my Copics and then took the blender pen (0) and just ran it over and over until I had removed most of the color and the sentiment was easier to read.

*************************************************************************************
My next two cards use the stamp set The Grind and anything having to do with coffee is a must have for me. I kept the stamping somewhat subtle and I used the Costco (huge) pack of paper that has been in my stash. I used the beans stamp and the coffee grinder stamp for this card and the sentiment in the corner to finish it off.

My next card is a brighter sort of card and the colors are very pretty. Doesn't that cup of coffee look yummy.

That's it for me today, but I'll have more tomorrow and today you can go visit these fellow DT members and see their sneak peeks.


Thanks for coming to visit and have a great day!

I do consider all the ideas you have presented on your post.
They are very convincing and will definitely work.
Nonetheless, the posts are very quick for starters. May just you please prolong them a bit from subsequent time?
Thanks for the post.
