Clear Dollar Stamps Sneak Peeks Day #3

It's day #3 of the Clear Dollar Stamps Sneak Peeks and I only have two sets to show you today. The two sets are Sweet Symphony and Sheet Music. These sets were such a must have for me. My daughter plays the piano and used to play the violin, while our neighbor is a French Horn Professor at a local college. Sweet Symphony is a set of 17 while Sheet Music is a set of 2. They just go hand in hand!

I love the sound of the violin, and I really wish that my daughter had wanted to stick with it, but she chose piano. At least there is still some music in the house ;) I love how beautiful these stamps are, and there are so many for such a small price! I had a lot of fun distressing this first sample and I whipped out the old air art tool. Such a great tool to play with!
Stamps: Sweet Symphony & Sheet Music
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Creamy Caramel, Basic Black, Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip

My next sample is near and dear to mine, my brother's and my sister's hearts, lol! We all played the trumpet in junior high and high school. My brother actually went on to make a little money with it playing TAPS at funerals, but I was actually kicked out of marching band because I couldn't figure out right/left quick enough. Very sad, I know, but still funny :D This sketch was a challenge for us and is actually the challenge for the Guest Design Challenge going on over at Clearly iStamp! Go check it out and get all the details.

  1. Such gorgeous creations Cassie!! Made me chuckle with the getting kicked out of band story! Too funny!


  2. Lovely cards, Cassie. I always wanted to play an instrument but never was able to afford the lessons and my school didn't offer anything...hope your daughter sticks with it for life, I'd love to play the piano!

  3. Beautiful Cassie!

    Non-stamping question: are you homeschooling this summer? I should be but we keep having friends over. Poor unsocialized kids. LOL!
