Pinching Myself


I am so wicked excited and completely honored  because I was invited to be a part of the Digital Design Team at Clear Dollar Stamps!!! Can you believe it?!  Of course I said yes!!  Woohoo!  So now you know why I'm still pinching myself :))

If you aren't familiar with their products, I urge you take a look around their site - they have it all!  Clear stamps, digi stamps, digi papers, and sentiments!!  To take you to their site, click here.

When I got this image from Clear Dollar Stamps, I had to ink it up right away!  You know me and my sunflowers!!  It's from the Sunshine and Smiles digital set which includes some amazing sentiments to match!  You can find the set by clicking here!

Fabulous image, right?  Just love those sunflowers!!  They're the perfect flower to send to someone when they need a little cheeriness!!

I love this new cardstock that I got from Wassau!  It's already embossed and the crinkles in it look almost exactly the wood fence in the image.  The flowers, leaves, and flourishes were SVG files that I cut on my Cricut Expression and distressed along with the image in Making Memories Distress Ink.  The pearl centers were just plain old white self adhesive pearls that I colored with my Copics in the same shades of brown that I colored the fencing.

Clear Dollar Stamps is coming out with a new release soon (which I can't wait for), so stay tuned!!!
