Hello Friends!


Can you believe that it is almost February??? Yikes! But that means it's time for Clear Dollar Stamps sneak peeks again!! Yippee! I can finally show you what I've been working on all month, besides bookkeeping for GraceWorks. ☺


So without further ado, let me introduce you to Circle Somethings. It's a set of 23 stamps for only $14.99. Don't you just *love* the value CDS packs into their sets??


For my first card I chose the polka dot half circle that's included in the set to make Mr. Froggy. Since the circles and half circles are separate from the "features" you can stamp them in different colors. They all have their own patterns, too! Fun, huh?? You can make turtles, cups, birds, ladybugs, mice and baby buggies... just to name a few. *And* it comes with 4 sentiments!!


Oh! By the way - the background is made by stamping a tiny solid circle that is included in the set in white and River Rock ink. It makes a really quick and easy background!


Here's another...



Cup of Tea


CDS STAMPS USED: Circle Somethings
CS/PAPERS: Pink, White, Kraft, Chocolate CS
INK: Chocolate, PTI Fresh Snow
ACCENTS/TOOLS: Oval Nestibilities, Ribbon, Brads, Sponge, Scalloped Border Punch, Word Window Punch


This time I used one of the full circles as my background, and a coordinating half circle for my cup. The steam is actually the cup's handle stamped twice. This color combo is so soothing. It's one of my favorites!

Check out the other designers' blogs to see more of this set, and others!! And meet me back here tomorrow. I have SO much to show you!!

Tricia, what great Sneak Peeks you have in store! I love your adorable frog card and the polka dot background paper is perfect! And that lovely teacup card is just beautiful...love the color scheme and the pretty flourished, stamped circles in the background, too. Beautiful work, Tricia!

The frog card will make such a cute baby card and your teacup card was my four year olds' favorite in the gallery because the colors are "pretty"! :) Adorable peeks!
