Clear Dollar Stamps - June Sneak Peek!
A new release available this coming Sun-day, "Cute Confections" is actually an acrylic WHEEL stamp. Great for borders and envelopes or anytime you need a quick, no-fuss card! Check it out, along with TONS of other new releases for June at the Clear Dollar webstore.

For this card, I ran the wheel thru my Timber Brown Staz-On inkpad, rolled it across white cardstock, then trimmed it down a bit (the entire image is a bit longer than what you see here). I shaded the goodies with my Copics, using colors mostly from the BG family, then double-matted the strip on SU's Sage Shadow and Always Artichoke CS. Next, for some added visual interest, I cut out one of the cupcakes from that portion of the strip I didn't use originally and glued it on so that it kind of hangs off the (lower left) edge of the strip. Finally, I jazzed up my confections with seed beads and liquid pearls. The floral panel below was made with the tiny flower image from Clear Dollar's "Cake Occasions" set, released a few months ago (the wheel is designed to coordinate with this set). I stamped the flower in a random fashion across a white strip, using no less than 6 (!) different shades of VersaMagic chalk inks. Then I stamped "Happy Birthday" (also from "Cake Occasions") in the Timber Brown Staz-On and matted the strip on SU Teal ("Taken with"?!). At last, the cake and flower panels were mounted on an SU Soft Sky card (cake strip attached with a double layer of foam adhesive strips). I'm not sure who the ribbon belongs to, but it's an absolutely butter-soft, super delicate silk in a variegated deep oceany color.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and be sure to look for more Clear Dollar sneak peeks through out the rest of the week! And GO PENS!!!

You pick the coolest colors to work with! You put so much detail in your work and it shows. On this card, I really like how the wide ribbon separates the card out and makes a beautiful knot.
