On top of today being a productive school day for the kids, it was also a productive stamping day for me. Yeah, I know when it rains it pours. . .I either do not have time to post and an abundance of things to post, or I do have time and I'm scrabbling to make things to post. Not that I mind making things. I totally enjoy going into my craft cave and getting away from things. So, sorry for those of you whom are bored looking at my posts for the day, but I just have to share. Tomorrow will probably be one of those days that nothing gets posted, so bear with me :)
Riding the wave of my excitement from my latest shipment of Clear Dollar Stamps, here are two more cards from two new sets.
This card was inspired by a gift bag that Kim Teasdale made. I obviously switched things up a bit. I made the igloo with Baja Breeze DSP that I ran through my Cuttlebug with the Tiny Mosaic embossing folder. I then cut out two half circles. The white stitching is faux stitching with a white gel pen. I watercolored the girl using Not Quite Navy, then cut her out and used white liquid applique on her coat fluff. I poured glitter over the top before I heated it. What a fun set.Stamps: Winter Eskimo

This next card was made using the new Clear Dollar Stamp set called "Farm Critters" I love using the Flower Soft. I have two kinds, the Heather and the Nut Brown. This color combination was fun to work with as well.
I have go to learn to take better pictures, because this just doesn't give it justice. I did pop the image up with Stampin' Dimensionals, which obviously gives it dimension.
