More Flakes from Clear Dollar Stamps!

Hello, I am back with another snowman
 from the Flakes set by Lisa Lara. 
I think this one is my favorite from the set. 
This is the windy snowman.

I added color with colored pencils.
 I cut out his scarf and popped it up
 to give a little more dimension to the card. 
The snowflake corner die
 is a Memory Box die.
Head on over to Clear Dollar Stamps 
and see what is new!

Poppies from Doodle Pantry

Today's card is a digital image from
 Doodle Pantry called Poppies. 
This image is so realistic! 
Laurie always does such a 
great job with her digis!!

I colored this with colored pencils and then went over the image lightly with some distress ink. I embossed the background paper with a striped 
embossing folder and then distressed that as well.
Thanks for visiting today - drop by Doodle Pantry and see what they have new for October!

 Clearly Digital image release!
Today I am debuting two new digital sets
 available right now at CDS!!

Be sure and check out the CDS blog for info

Both sets are from our new designer, AUSTIN OWENS!

My first sample uses her new set:

I REALLY love this sunflower image. 
The bold lines make it really fun to color.
 I used Distress inks as watercolors to color this. 
I added a touch of toffee chalk ink around the edges.

My next card uses Austin's set - Tulips

layering shades of pinks and reds.
I love pink tulips! They just make me smile!

CIC 61 Sentiments Only

Hello and welcome to the 
Clear Dollar Stamps CIC Challenge #61! 

The challenge this time was SENTIMENTS ONLY.
 I used a sweet new digi designed by our very own Lisa Lara.

As much as I don't want to admit it, snow is not too far away!
I added color to this digi with Tombow markers.
The Snowflake frame and snowflakes are from Spellbinders.
I added some 'snow' with a snow marker.
 It is sort of like liquid applique, but it seemed to puff up more. 
Thank you for stopping today!
I hope you will join us in the CIC Challenge!
