Clear Dollar Stamps Sneak Peek - Day 4

Well, we've reached the last day of sneak peeks and tomorrow is the big day to load up those shopping cards :) You know the routine... if you want to see the full reveals head on over to Lori's blog - Clearly iStamp to check 'em out.

I've got lots to share with you today too and my first featured stamp set is called Scenic Trees. This is a timeless set that you will be able to use over and over again! I love this one! I really adore this paper and colors from Papertrey ink and this tree is perfect.

My second card is completely different and I used it as a chance to play with some new product. I just got some Tim Holtz Rock Candy Crackle Paint and wanted to check it out. I stamped this tree image several times (using 2nd generation stamping technique) then painted over with the crackle paint. Then I took some ink and distressed right over the cracks.

Here is a close up...

Here are the other DT members sharing using the above stamp set...


My next cards feature March's Stamp of the Month called Terrific Little Tree. Reember this set is FREE with a minimum purchase of just $50. This is a really cute mix and match set that results in some very cute results.

My first card I created was a fun spring flower theme. I used some Flower Soft to create some dimension for my flowers.

My next card is a bit "tart"...

You can catch more eye candy here using this set....


And my last set of cards uses a set (Cute Caboose) that is a great addition to this month's stamp set called Chuggin' Along.

And my second card... definitely more of a "kid" friendly look.

Head on over here to catch more...


That's it for my samples for this month, but please check out these following stamps that are being shown today with these lovely ladies...
