Back on the Team!
I am so thrilled to announce that effective March 1, I am back on the Clear Dollar Stamps Design Team!!! Thanks so very much to owner Lori McCroskey and DT Leader Laurie Wilson for welcom-ing me back as "Release Month Designer"...this means I get to make samples of the current month's stamp releases all month long and share them with you for (hopefully!) some ideas and inspiration! Not only do I get to play with the world's best stamps and work along side some of the most talented designers in the business (check out my fellow dt members' creations...their galleries and blogs are listed in my sidebar), but I'm back to posting on a more regular basis (and after many false starts, it's about time!) will be so great to be back in the land of the (papercrafting) living!!!

So the card here is my official "comeback" effort, using one of Clear Dollar Stamp's new March releases, "Old Time Church". I kept the concept simple here, as the image is large and detailed and beautiful on its own! A little watercoloring and some gorgeous new papers from My Mind's Eye and I was done. The dirt:

Stamps: "Old Time Church" set from Clear Dollar Stamps
Cardstock: Watercolor paper; Bazzill (an olive-y green, though I don't have the specific name)
DP: "French Flea Market" papers from My Mind's Eye "BellaBella" Collection
Inks: Staz-On "Timber Brown"; Ranger Distress Ink "Tea Dye"
Color Medium: Stampin' Up watercolor crayons
Label Die: Spellbinders Nestabilities "Labels Four"

Stay tuned over the next day or so for my next card, which uses another Clear Dollar March release, "Kitchen Clutter"'s waaaaaaaaaaaay too cute! Thanks for stopping by and have a peaceful Sunday and a wonderful week ahead!
