Candy Cover

Happy Sunday everyone! Hope you are having a wonderful day. I have a project for you today that I have been working on for my Granddaughters. The stamp is a new one from Digital Delights. She is called Angel Donita Topper. Such a sweet face! Both of my girls are still young so being a grandma I am afraid to give them any candy with nuts so they are getting York Peppermint Patties. They are in the shape of a snowflake and wrapped individually. You can see one in the background. =)
One of my girls has red hair and the other one has brown so that is the reason for the hair difference. These are the challenges I am putting this project into:
Come and Get It - Anything but a card
Paper Sundaes - Valentines
One Stitch at a Time - Use a digital
The Crafty Pad - Valentines
All Sorts - Hearts
Just Us Girls - 3D Valentines
Stamp, Scrap, and Doodle - Anything goes
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week!

Paper Pieced Flurry the Snowman

Look at this little guys adorable face! So sweet! This is Flurry the Snowman he is a digital stamp from Digital Delights. When you purchase him his coat, scarf, and hat all have a design on them. I didn't want to use that so I printed the same image of Flurry on the wrong side of the blue and orange. Then I cut those pieces out and pieced them on Flurry. I did have to draw a few lines and you have no idea how nervous I was to do that. Even drawing lines is hard for me. No artist here.
These are the challenges I am submitting this card into:
Use It Tuesday - Winter and hoarded supplies (the paper and blue yarn have been sitting around forever in my room)
My Craft Spot - Snow much fun
Crafting For All Seasons - Snowman and Snowflakes
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful rest of the week!

It's Digital Release day at Clear Dollar Stamps!

Today is digi release day over at Clear Dollar Stamps. As you can see I am still having problems with blogger so hopefully we can get through this. As you can see that nothing on my post is linked back - that is one thing I can't do now. Good grief!! The card above is using the set called "Loving Critters". I just thought the beaver was just darling. The balloon is blank and you can add one of the sentiments that comes in the set if you choose or just leave the balloon blank. It is cute both ways.
The next card I have to show you is using the set called "We Go Together". How fun is this! This set is a must have! It is just so fun! Now if you would like to check out all the digital stamp sets that are being released today you can hop on over to Clearly iStamp blog. Plus, you can see what the other design team members have created with all the sets. Have a great week!

Toasty Bears

With the past four days doing the product parade for Clear Dollar Stamps I am having challenge withdrawls! =) So I had a couple of free hours this morning and thought I would take advantage of that! This adorable stamp is a digital set from Clear Dollar Stamps. It has been out a couple months but I haven't used it. The set is called "Toasty Bears". I was afraid to get coloring these two adorable bears. I think it was because the color version of this set is just beautiful and I knew I couldn't do it justice. So I just did my own take on it and I had a good time. Because I have been away from the challenges for so long I have entered this in a lot of challenges.
Crafty Creations - Something New (new stamp set for me)
For Fun - Just for Fun
Sisterhood of Crafters - Let it snow
Try Stampin' on Tuesday - Sketch
Creative Card Crew - Snowdays
Shopping Our Stash - Sparkle
Tuesday Throwdown - Cold outside
My Time to Craft - Hugs and kisses
Critter Sketch - Cold outside
Make My Mondays - Animals
Sentimental Sundays - Snow, blue, and glitter
Crazy 4 Challenges - Something new (stamp)
Stamp, Scrap and Doodle - Winter
Card Makin' Mamas - New to you (stamp)
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great rest of the week!

Last day of the Product Parade from Clear Dollar Stamps!

Wow, can you believe it?!? Today, is the last day of the product parade from Clear Dollar Stamps. Haven't all the sets just been wonderful!! Now today I am showing off the sets you can earn for free! Gotta love free stamp sets! The first card I made shows off the set "Mini Verses". This set has 7 verses in it. They are mini just like the title but sometimes you only want a small sentiment.
The second card I have for you is using the set called "Winter Bear". How sweet is this bear and his little friend.

The last card in the parade is the set I have been showing you all these four days. I really had a fun time with this set. There is just so much you can do with this one. The set is called "Sweet Heart". For this card I again used the heart and made a shaker card. I just love this set and you can have it for free.

I hope you enjoyed seeing all the new stamps set that Clear Dollar Stamps has coming out. Remember you can see the full sets and some of the projects from the designers at the Clearly iStamp blog. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful rest of the week!

Day 3 of the Product Parade from Clear Dollar Stamps!

Are you ready for this? Today I have 6 different cards to show you from Clear Dollar Stamps. All the these cards have scripture on them. That is the basic theme for todays post. =) The first card is showing off the set titled "Walk By Faith". I totally love this shoe! I have always loved polka dots to this is right up my alley. I think we all need a pair of hot pink and black shoes. Wearing these shoes would just make the day better. =)
My next card is using the stamp "Ark of Faith". This is just darling. Look at all those cute animals.

This card is featuring the scripture verse "Psalm 46:10". I just love this verse. Life moves to quickly and at times I need to be reminded just to slow down and be still.

The next card I have to show you is using the stamp set called "Eternity". This set includes three stamps. I did use another stamp on the inside but I thought you had enough pictures to see today.This next card is featuring the stamp "God is Love". I also used the die set from Clear Dollar Stamps called "Elegant Accents Die".

My last card for today to show you is using the stamp "Psalm 37:23". I just had to use the shoe again from the set "Walk by Faith". The scripture talks about our steps so I thought it worked perfectly. Oh yeah, I need this set of shoes too.

Thanks so much for hanging with me with all these cards to show off. Remember you can visit the Clearly iStamp blog to see the sets in the full then you can go and visit the other designers to see what they have created. Tomarrow is the last day for the Product Parade from Clear Dollar Stamps for January. You won't want to miss out on those sets either. Have a great day!

Day 2 of the Product Parade from Clear Dollar Stamps!

Are you ready for some more new releases from Clear Dollar Stamps?!? Yeah, let's get this Product Parade off and running. I have four different cards to show you today so lets begin. The first card is featuring the "Cute as a Button" stamps. This stamp can be used for so many different things. The spaceship was part of the paper that I used to make this card.
My next card for today is showing off the stamp set called Dahlia. This set comes with 6 different stamps. The large flower and the flower bud. I used the bud on each side of the flower.

On the next card I used the stamp set titled "Josephine Clematis". What a beautiful flower. I had to google this flower to see what colors the bloom in. I totally fell in love with the dark colors and decided to try and copy that.

My last card for today is showing off the set "You Lift Me Up". How adorable is this! This cute stamps comes with 5 different sentiments. It was hard to choose which fun sentiment to use. This stamp set is just so sweet!

Now remember to see all the sets being released today you can hop on over to the Clearly iStamp blog. You can also visit the other designers to see what wonderful ideas they have come up with. See you again tomarrow for more new stamp sets from Clear Dollar Stamps.
