Day 4 Sneak Peeks!! Leafy Trio

It’s the final day of sneak peeks. Tomorrow all of these fabulous sets will be available at Clear Dollar Stamps. Yay!!! :-)

My card for today showcases a little set of three leaves. My first thought when I saw them is that they would be wonderful to stamp your own backgrounds, but when I started to stamp with them, this is what came out… LOL!

I stamped the leaves on some ivory natural cardstock from Stampin’ Up and then watercolored them by scribbling markers onto an acrylic block and picking up the color with a wet paintbrush. I distressed the edges and matted them with scalloped squares that I punched out with my super jumbo Marvy punch. There are some of my favorite embellishments on this card: stitching, scalloped squares, my Martha Stewart Lace Doily punch and eyelets. The dp is by K&Company, and the “blessings” sentiment is from the Charlie Harvest set that I previewed a day or two ago. (Did I mention that I love that set???)

So there you are! What is your favorite set from this release?? I know I’ll be using them all very often!!!

Be sure to check out the other designers blogs today. There are a number of other sets being previewed today that I know you’ll like - including the Stamp of the Month set that you can get free with a $50 order from the store!
