Clear Dollar Stamps Sneak Peeks Day 1

Yay! It's Clear Dollar Stamps Sneak Peek time! I look so forward to this every month, because I just love to hear the reactions that you all have to the new sets that will be releasing in just a few short days! I only have a couple of sets to show you today, but that doesn't mean that there isn't more to see ;D

The first set I'll show you is called Patchpal Reindeer and is a set of 6 for only $7.99. I love the Patchpal line that Clear Dollar Stamps carries. . .they are just so fun to color! I decided to go really colorful with this sample, and I do love how it turned out.
Stamps: Patchpal Reindeer
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
PBoldaper: Whisper White, Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly
Accessories: Prismacolor Pencils & gamsol, button, Oval & Tags Trio Nestabilities, Sparkly Fluff White, red ribbon

My next sample actually came about in a funny way. . .okay, it wasn't funny at the time. I was using my Cuttlebug, like I often do when for some reason I busted it! I'm not sure to this day, how it happened but it did. My husband was leaving by the end of the week, and this was just the straw that broke the camel's back. I just could not stop crying. I text my husband, knowing he was in a meeting. To my surprise he called me right away to see if I was okay. I know, silly that I would cry so hard over a silly machine, but you crafters feel my pain. I collected myself and the pieces of my Cuttlebug, and decided it wasn't the end of the world. My husband ended up coming home early with a little surprise for me. . .a new Cuttlebug! Not only that, but he brought home a new embossing folder too (yes, the one used down below). Boy, do I love my man. . .he takes very special care of me. He told me he couldn't leave without making sure I had what I needed to craft. Yes, I know. . .he's a keeper ;D The end result was this card. . .

It was made with the set called Railroad Memories, that is a set of 10 for only $9.99. I like this card for what it symbolizes to me. . .an awesome husband. I'll probably just have to send it to him while he's in Iraq ;) Plus, it kind of makes me feel like watching the Polar Express!

  2. Girl, you have me sitting here crying, I know what you mean, I don't think it was silly and probably not why you broke down, but wow, how awesome is he!?!! My husband would have said quit be silly! Your cards are both perfect, I love the stripes with the tree and your coloring is great on both and I know the card will have a special meaning to him because of the story behind it!

  5. Great samples Cassie! I especially love the patchpal Christmas set! Even though I was (almost) there during the cuttlebug disaster, still tears come when reading about it. Jim is so awesome, it takes a good man to walk into the craft store and find out where they keep the cuttlebugs.. (hehehe)

  7. Awe... very sweet. Need a tissue? I know I need one.

    "HUGS"

    I broke my big shot right before Christmas last year and was in a panic to get it fixed or replaced. Luckily my husband helped me get the replacement part and got it fixed within the month.

    LOVE your preview creations! It's neat how your train just pops colored like that.

    :-)
