Clear Dollar Stamps Sneak Peeks Day 4

Good morning everyone!! Today is the Clear Dollar Stamps Sneak Peeks Day 4!! Today I will be showcasing the January Stamp of the Month called Spring Trimmings. This set could be yours free with a $50.00 Clear Dollar Stamps order. Check it out on January 1st!!

Laurie Wilson, Clear Dollar Stamps Design Team Coordinator, challenged the design team to a color challenge; So Saffron, Almost Amethyst, and Gable Green....what gorgeous spring colors!!!

The basket, flowers, dragonfly, and the sentiment were all stamped with Memento Black. The images were colored with the challenge color markers, cut out with Nestabilities, and attached with dimensionals. Scallops were added to the So Saffron layer with the SU scallop border punch and Liquid Pearls dots were added to the scallops. I was excited when I found this scrap of Paper Studio dp in my stash...the colors were perfect for the challenge!! The Almost Amethyst card base was run through the Dotted Swiss Cuttlebug folder and the Papertrey Ink ribbon and pearls from Stamper's Dream were added for a little glam.

The CDS's January Stamp of the Month images make the most perfect inchies!! How fun is this!! The images are all stamped with PTI's Berry Sorbet and layered over Berry Sorbert and Spring Moss cardstock. The background designer papers are also from Papertrey Ink along with the ribbon. I added a clear square button over the dragonflies to qualify this for Laurie's clear challenge. Dots were added to the Nesties layer with a white gel pen and tiny pearls from Stamper's Dream were added to the corners.

My last card is a combo of CDS's January Stamp of the Month and the Spring Critter's set. The adorable bunny and sentiment were stamped with Memento Black and the bunny was paper pieced with Basic Grey's Urban Prairie dp. The grass was colored with a copic marker. The eggs were all stamped on scraps of Baja Breeze, Regal Rose, Kiwi Kiss cardstock and Urban Prairie dp. The decorations were stamped with Regal Rose, Baja Breeze, and Kiwi Kiss. All the layers were cutout with Nestabilities and dots were added with a white gel pen. The background dp is from Basic Grey's Urban Prairie, Baja Breeze, Regal Rose, and Kiwi Kiss and the ribbon is from Stampin Up!
That completes the Sneak Peeks for the January 1, 2009 releases. Thanks for visiting today and I hope you have a great Tuesday!!
