Clear Dollar Stamps Sneak Peak #3

More great sets coming out November 1st from Clear Dollar Stamps! This one is Lamp Post Blessings and it has a companion set called Lamp Post Expressions. I used both sets for my cards I'm sharing today. My first card above was for a challenge using Glossy Card stock. I haven't used any glossy card stock in quite a while so it was a bit of a challenge alright! I made the sky and moon with the glossy card stock and then used regular card stock for the brick work and lamp post.
My second card was also a challenge card. The challenge was to make your own paper. I love making my own patterned paper so that was really fun and just kind of came together by itself. I used Stickles Ice on both of the lamps and covered the Stickles on this second card with Crystal Effects to try to give it a bit more shine. I got more of an odd texture than anything else.
I have new Clear Dollar Stamps for our next projects sitting on my desk. I can't wait to play with them! But... I can't tell you anything about those...
My blog has been having a lot of visitors lately, thank you so much for stopping and looking at what I've been having fun making. And of course what seems to be "the drama of my life" right now with the home repair projects going on. One of the bathroom toilets decided to overflow this evening during bath time for my kids. I made a few phone calls and one of my friends came over and saved the day. Thank the Lord, for the people He's put in my life! I don't know how much more of this "excitement" I can stand...
