Clear Dollar Stamps June Sneak Peeks Day 1

Hi friends, its time for sneak peeks, but before I get going, I wanted to share some great news. As of now, I get the pleasure of being the new Design Team Leader for Lori.

Now, don't worry though... Laurie our esteemed past DT leader is going nowhere. She is actually going to be heading up and working with the gals doing the digi images and helping Lori with back end stuff with the store.

So without further ado, lets get going! Like I said earlier, today is the first day of Clear Dollar Stamps sneak peeks for the new June Stamps. Head on over to Lori's blog - Clearly iStamp to check out the today's featured stamps in all their full glory.

Plus, another group of Clearly Coordinating Collection is going to be released too - Rustic Fall. You can head on over to Lori's blog and see these glorious colors.


Here are the stamp set names and designers that are sharing cards/projects for them.

So without further ado, here are the cards that I have to share with you. My first card is from the set called Jesus is Knocking. This is such a beautiful image and it was a pleasure to color and put together.

Accents/Tools: Spellbinders Rectangle Plain and Scallop Nestabilities, hot cocoa ribbon, sponge tool, flower soft

My next card is from the set called Pansy Bunny and is illustrated by Trudy. What a great combination of flowers and sweet bunny. For this image I used my Tombows and a waterbrush to color.

This next card is from next month's Stamp of the Month. Remember this stamp set is FREE with a minimum purchase of just $50. You'll love this one... its called A Tweet Hello.

For my next sample, I created a handful of 3x3 notecards using 2 of the newest Dollar stamps - the dove and praying for you sentiment. They work so perfectly together and then I opted to add another stamp set to finish my look - Plumes and Blooms.

I stamped my dove with VersaMark and then used silver embossing powder and then cut out the images and used pop dots to add some dimension. I also used some new cardstock called Smoke Stack that will be available next month as part of the continuing Clearly Coordinating Collection.
