Clear Dollar Stamps Sneak Peek Day 1

Yay, it's the end of the month and you all know what that means. . .Clear Dollar Stamps Sneak Peeks! I have 2 samples to show you today, so let's get started. The first sample is from the set called Silhouette Thoughts designed by Laurie. It's a set of 8 for only $12.99. I love the elegance of this set and the versatile sentiment that says, 'I thought of you Today.' How perfect is that?! This sample has a lot of sponging, and I even tried my hand at the cracked glass technique. If you've never tried this technique, you really should give it a try.
CDS stamps: Silhouette Thoughts
Ink: Melon Mambo, Certainly Celery, Bermuda Bay, Versamark
Paper: Intense Kiwi Prism, My Mind's Eye Ooh La La dp, choice buttercream
Accessories: Labels 1 Nestabilities, Birds & Swirls embossing folder, sponge, glossy glaze embossing powder, Gray courdoroy button

My other sneak for today is from the single stamp called Sing to the Lord. I love, love, love that CDS is a Christian based company, and that Lori has soooo many selections of scripture. She adds more every month! You just can't go wrong sending someone a card with Scripture on it ;) This is a post-it note holder made with 2 coasters (you can order coasters at CDS, and use them on so many projects). I also whipped out my Bind-it-All, which I LOVE to use.

Now I know it's only Day 1 of the sneaks, and your appetite is wet for more, so head on over to these amazing ladies' blogs to see what else there is to see (and believe me, there is A LOT to see): Trudy, Nancy, Stacy, Laurie, Angela, Katie, Linda B., Kim, Linda A., Tricia, Tori, & Sarah

As always, head on over to Lori's blog (Clearly iStamp) to take a gander at each of the sets for today, and a few more sneaks. Be sure to come back tomorrow, because I'll have even more Clear Dollar Stamps goodness to share ;D


  1. Both are gorgeous Cassie! Great colors, embellies, and beautiful images and sentiments! Love the cracked-glass technique!

  2. Cassie, what really cool sneak peeks! Love the pear card, with the background stamping and the cracked glass -- it really lends itself to the pear stamp. And look at that supercute post-it note holder that you created and bound! Love the little guitar addition, too.

  3. THey are both really nice, the cracked glass technique makes it old looking, very elegant, both of them,Anja

  4. Love both of these Cassie, especially the silhouette one, so pretty, and I'll have to try that cracked glass technique:)

  5. Both of these are pretty! I like the little journal you created, great job.

  6. Gorgeous card Cassie!!! Love the cracked glass technique. And totally fabulous post it note holder too!! You've inspired me to pull out my bind-it-all too!!!


  7. Hi Cassie, these cards are both totally adorable! I haven't tried the technique from the first card and I think you have inspired me. You are so right about CDS and all the christian stamps. That is the first thing that attracted me to them. They are fun yet Christ centered! Great job girl!!

  8. What a beautiful technique to combine with that stamp! Fabulous idea!

    Neat bind-it-all project!

    LOVE them both!!!


  9. Oh, how fun! We just got a bind-it-all and these is a great project for it!

  10. I love the image!It is so cute!I love the layout and the colors.
