Clear Dollar Stamps July Sneak Peeks Day 1

Hey everyone! Its time for sneak peeks for Clear Dollar Stamps. Lori created several great background and background builder sets for next month. I know you'll really like them, especially if you enjoy creating your own custom backgrounds. You can see what they look like in full over on Lori's blog - Clearly iStamp and check out the last installment of the Clearly Coordinating Collection (Winter Solice).

Striped Background * Bitty Builder Background * Diamond Circle Background

This first card I'd like to share shows how I created my own background using the Striped Background and the chisel end of my Copic Markers. The stamp is such a simple one and so easy to use. I'm all about easy and zero fussiness.

Stamps/Images: Striped Background, scenic trees, formal sentiments
Cardstock/Paper: cottonball white, mustard seed, spring leaf, fresh papaya
Ink/Markers: black, olive (ctmh), Copics: YG97, YR31, YR23

My next card uses Bitty Builder Background. This little gem of stamp set is just pure fun. So many choices and any combination is right.

My last two cards uses the stamp called Diamond Circle Background. This is a large single stamp measuring a whopping 5"x5". Its perfect for creating an easy background for all your cards.
