Clear Dollar Stamps - Sneak Peek #2

Hi friends, its day 2 of Clear Dollar Stamps sneak peeks. Today's featured stamps are Charlie Harvest - Get off your Tuffet - At the Races - Tea-rrific. You can see the full reveals on Lori's blog, Clearly iStamp.

At the Races is going to be a great card for little and big boys alike. I don't really differentiate between the two - do you??? This first card of course might lend itself to the younger version just because its a bit brighter and a little more "fun". I thought the gears in the background paper are really neat looking and would fit with the stamp.

I also love the trophy image in the set too. I really think this image will match up well with any type of contest theme card that I might need in the future. I used my Gold Spica Glitter pen to give it some great shine.


Now my next card began with the intention of coloring in the image, but while I was putting the pieces together, I thought it looked great just as it was. I love the bold strong colors of this card.

************************************************************************************
I love coffee and coffee related stamps and although I'm not a huge tea drinker I still have a passion for tea stamps too. Ok... I must admit I'm pretty easy when it comes to stamps (hehe).

This first card pairs two colors that I love to put together. Papertrey ink's aqua mist and spring moss. I also was trying something different by using my hexagon nestability and cutting my tea pot off center, but it just looks weird... always just slightly off... lesson learned.

My 2nd card uses more Papertrey ink cardstock. I just got the newer Scarlet Jewel and it has a very rich color to it and to me looks rather vintage, thus the lace. I also stamped the tea bag on the background and stamped the cup, the creamer, and the sugar bowl.

That's it for me but make sure to go visit my fellow DT members to see a lot more inspiration and the rest of the sneak peeks.

Katie, your samples are so cute! I love that black and white of the race car, and I love the ribbon treatment you added to one of your tea set cards. Just lovely ;D

Tricia said...

Wonderful cards today, Katie. I can't pick a favorite!

All your clean and simples are just fabulous! I like how you managed to use what i have always thought were more feminine tools, on the boy cards, and they don't look feminine at all!
