Clear Dollar Stamps New Release with Product Parade

Dear friends,

I've scheduled crafty posts for today and the next few days.  I've started creating again for Lori and Clear Dollar Stamps.  Lori is going to be releasing her stamp sets quarterly and this is absolutely perfect for me!  It is really a wonderful thing for you the customer as well.  As a customer, it gets overwhelming sometimes with monthly releases.  As you and I know, time flies and with these quarterly releases, it gives you the customer time to really enjoy those new images before the next new must have stamps come out!

The other fabulous news is that all the new releases are available for purchase RIGHT NOW.  Yup, head on over and fill that shopping cart!  But, you also have the option of waiting to check out all the Design Team ideas in what we are calling the PRODUCT PARADE!  Now, you have the choice to purchase right away or wait to purchase... to have choices is the best part of the new way Clear Dollar Stamps is releasing its "tangible" stamp sets!

So without further ado, today the team is showing you what you can do with two of the available new releases called Tulip Wreath and Lovely Women.  Here are the two sets in full.


Here is my sample using the set called Tulip Wreath.  I chose the smaller  tulip image and used it to create my background and then stamped it again as my focal point.  Its very pink isn't it?  Trust me, you don't see much pink around my house.  There is also an SVG file that you can purchase that will make your cutting super easy.

Stamps: Tulip Wreath

Carstock/Papers: CDS cottonball white, bubblegum, tickled pink
Copics: RV04, RV06, RV13, 0
Accents/Tools: oval punch, spellbinders labels 17, clear embossing powder
Technique: sewing, heat embossing

My next card uses a sentiment from the Lovely Women Set.  I really like the way you can use these for all your female relatives!  I chose to create a Mother's Day card.

Stamps: Lovely Women

Cardstocks/Papers: CDS cottonball white, cosmo cricket DeLovely

Inks: CDS lime juice

Copic Marker: YG00

Accents/Tools: spellbinders floral doily motif, recollections flowers sizzix leaf die, copic airbrush

Thank you so much for visiting... don't forget I've scheduled more posts for the next 3 days, so come on back for more ideas!  Just head on over to the side bar for 
the Clear Dollar Stamps design team members' blogs for even more inspiration.

Georgeous cards Katie, I love the tulips. I spent some time in the garden today and the tulips are just coming out. They are exactly the same colour as the one on the card.
It is so nice to see you making cards again, and that you have joined the DT again.
Lots of love
