Clear Dollar Sneak Peeks Day #3

It's day 3 of the Clear Dollar Stamps Sneak Peeks, and I have so much to show you.  I must say, the beginning of the month is my favorite time!  (Be forwarned, this is a long post).  Today I have 3 stamp sets to show you with an extra *bonus* stamp at the end!  From the moment these showed up on my door, I couldn't wait to ink them up.  Trust me when I say, I have been dying to show you!

The first stamp set I will show you is called Charlie Lean on Me.  This set is so much fun, and who doesn't love Charlie?!  My first card was a challenge to come up with a card that was not a traditional shape.  Originally it was supposed to look like a barrel, but I'm not so sure it ended up that way.  {lol}  I cannot draw freehand to save my life, so my barrel looks a bit like a can.  You get the idea, right?!  I think it turned out okay, and regardless, it was super fun to make!
Stamps:  Charlie Lean on Me
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip

Accessories:  sponge, Pumpkin Pie felt flowers, black mini brads, Forest Branches embossing folder, SU dimensionals, oval cutter

My next sample was a challenge to not use any designer paper.  Yikes, right, but as soon as I saw these barrells, I knew what I wanted.  Charlie is such a fun character!  You can color this guy however you want and he still looks good ;D

My next samples are for a set that is so extremely versatile called Sassy Scallops.  If you love your Nesties like I know you do, you'll have to have this set!  These little stamps add  just the right extra touch.  My first sample was super fun to make with a couple of new Nesties.  Yes, I know, I've gotten a lot of these lately.  I just can't help it!  Clear Dollar has such a great selection of them!  I decided to use the dots stamp, because it went so well with my DP, and the cake on the Biggest Wishes stamp set that released this last month.  
Stamps:  Sassy Scallops, Biggest Wishes
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Tempting Turquoise, Riding Hood Red

This next sample I thought would make a great gift for my father-in-law.  He loves to plant new things and track how they are doing from year to year, so I made a gardening journal.  I combined the leaf from Sassy Scallops with Charlie Gardens, which was a new release from this last month.  I made this with my Bind-it-all!  I love this thing.  It gives me soooo many gifting options, and yes you guessed it, you can get it at Clear Dollar Stamps!

For my last samples I get to show you Motorcycle Mania, this really amazing motorcycle set!  I was so thrilled to get this set, because a lot of important people in my life ride motorcycles so gift ideas flooded my mind.  

Before I met my husband, I had planned to buy my dad's Harley and change the paint color.  I envisioned that Sportster looking like this with an adorable pink color.  Luckily for my dad, I met my man and plans for that money changed.  Regardless, I can see my best friend, Christi, riding something like this ;D

The next sample was an inspiration challenge.  It was an all black and white comforter, and this is what came to mind for me.

Ink:  Craft White, Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper:  Whisper White, Basic Black, DCWV La Creme

My last sample was combined with a new stamp called Happy Father's Day.  This was so fun for me, because I made it look just like my dad's current bike.  I think he'll love it and be very surprised.
