Clear Dollar Stamps Sneak Peek - Day 1

Hey all... its that time again... yup... Clear Dollar Stamps Sneak Peek time. If you want to see the full sets make sure to head on over to Lori's blog, Clearly iStamp.

These are the sets that are being shown today: Dog Day Celebrations, Holiday Patterns, Railroad Memories, Reindeer Patchpal and Dinomite.

I've got 3 sets to share with you today so we'll get started. I'll start with Dog Day Celebrations and share a card that is just in time for Halloween. If you have and enjoy last month's set called Dog Days, then this set is perfect for you. You can't see the cute doggie under his costume, but you know he is just too cute!

I paired this ghostly creature with some great looking paper from TaDa Creative Studios and I love the contrast of the simple image with the bright boldness of the paper.

My next card from this set is going into a whole other season, but it too is just around the corner. In this card, the doggy is definitely showing off, but he deserves too since he is too cute with his Santa hat.

I water colored him with a waterbrush and my inkpads... I really like the paper I used for the background but its old stuff and not available anymore, but my FAVORITE part is his Santa hat. I just adore Liquid Applique. It creates such great dimension.

My next cards are from a set being released called Holiday Patterns. This is an easy stamping set which I LOVE! They would make the perfect and easy to put together holiday cards.

And my last stamp set is called Reindeer Patchpal and fits in with all the other Patchpal collection. If you've already started collecting then you definitely want to add this cute little guy to the mix.

For this first card, I didn't use the reindeer at all, but used a companion stamp instead.

I stamped and colored the image and appropriate sections several times and then layered my tree. I love this effect using pop dots.

For my second card, I put the reindeer in the spotlight :)

Thanks for coming to visit me here, but make sure to go visit these lovely ladies with their sneak peeks too. I'll guarantee that you'll love everything you see.

Have a great day!
