Clear Dollar Stamps Sneak Peeks Day 1

Oh, I love love love this time of the month because it's Clear Dollar Stamps Sneak Peek time!! I just love being able to show what I've been working on all month, and I love getting you all excited about the stamp sets that are releasing! I have a three sets to show you today, so let's get started.

The first set I have to show you is called The Grind and is a set of 14 for only $9.99. Coffee sets are some of my favorites. They are so versatile and I am a bit of a coffee fanatic, so there is just a love there for sets like these. As soon as I saw this set, I just had to have it.
Stamps: The Grind
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Sahara Sand
Paper: Sahara Sand, Whisper White, Not Quite Navy dp, Pink Pirouette
Accessories: Labels 1 Nestabilities, sponge, white liquid applique, dazzling diamonds, glitter, geat tool, zig painty silver pen, pink ribbon, heart punch

My next sample with this set was a challenge given to the DT to not use any designer papers. I thought I would make a little scene with some of the stamps included in this set and used the masking technique to overlap the images.

My final set of samples is from the Romans 8 set that is only $3.75. Scripture verses are some of my favorite sets. They are always appropriate sentiments, and speak when you have nothing else to say. Scripture should be our first response, and so often it isn't. I love that God has made his Word so applicable, and I love that Clear Dollar Stamps embraces the Word. They have such a great selection of scripture sets.
Stamps: Romans 8
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Close to Cocoa, Soft Suede
Paper: parchment, Creamy Caramel, Basic Grey June Bug dp
AcceBoldssories: cream brads, Forest Branches embossing folder, sponge, ticket punch

I used a variation of Kim Teasdale's wood frame technique to make the cross, and was inspired by some pictures of purses that Laurie Wilson had for us to look at. This card has quickly become one of my favorites.

This final sample was a distressing challenge. I used a sponge with Soft Suede to give it the edges a more distressed and aged look. I have always loved the looked of the aged and distressed paper.

Stamps: Romans 8
Ink: Memeto Tuxedo Black, Soft Suede
Paper: Whisper White, Soft Suede, Barel Banana, Basic Grey dp
Accessories: sponge, silver brads, circle cutter
