A Blinged & Bejeweled Birthday!
Ok, so I went a little overboard with the shiny & sparkly stuff, but I think it suits this dainty little "mouselett" all decked out in her high heels & swing dress! She is part of a set released May 1 from Clear Dollar Stamps called "Biggest Wishes". You can see another card on which I used this set, as well as a list of my fellow dt members who also worked with it, by scrolling backwards through my blog about three posts. Now, here are the finer points of this card:

Stamps: "Biggest Wishes" - Clear Dollar Stamps
Inks: Colorbox "Chocolate" pigment ink (w/Stampendous Detail Clear embossing powder); SU "Garden Green" dye ink
Markers: Copic #sC1, C3, E77, E79, G29, G82, R12, R21, V01, V04, V12, V17, W1, W5, W9, Y38, YG67 (w/airbrush)
Cardstock: SU "Elegant Eggplant", "Whisper White"
DP: DCWV "Latte" Matstack
Dies & Punches: Nestabilities Curved Rectangles; Martha Stewart Doily Lace edge punch; McGill scallop corner punch; Marvy scallop circle punches
Embellishments: Offray ribbon; Stamping Bella green crackle flatbacks & purple pebbles; Prima flower

And now...I am pleased to announce that sneak peaks for Clear Dollar Stamps' June sets (yes, already!) will begin on May 28 and run through the 31st. Please visit the following Sneak Peak Designers' blogs/galleries during those dates for some great eye candy sure to stir up your creative juices:

I'll have a couple more cards using May releases, then get right to work on MY June samples which will be sprinkle-posted throughout the month. And one of these days it would be nice to make a random, unscheduled card or two...just don't know where all the times goes (that, and I think I've got some adult ADHD issues...seriously, sometimes my craftroom seems about as approachable as Mt. Everest...yeesh!). Till next time, enjoy your week!
