Final Sneak Peaks for Clear Dollar Stamps January 1st Releases!

It's the last day of the year, the last day before you can buy the January Clear Dollar Stamps new releases! Today's set is called Heart Flutters and there's a coordinating wheel stamp called Fluttering Fun. I made one of Lauren's timeless template purses so I could use the Fluttering Fun wheel stamp on the top part. My picture isn't as good as I'd have liked, the colors are much more vibrant IRL
I used both sets for this next card. I promise I'll stop using that sketch! (told you I was obsessed...)

Making this card was really fun. I love hearts and I like butterflies too, the set comes with a "body" so I had to try it out! I also used the Fluttering Fun wheel stamp to make some designer paper and the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder with some stitched black grossgrain ribbon from Clear Dollar Stamps. The rectangle Nesties dies and Stampin' Up! oval punches.

This card uses both Clear Dollar Stamps Heart Flutters and Fluttering Fun too. I used Versamark on the background so it's just barely there. I made another butterfly and used my Nesties dies, I like the new Pinking circles but haven't used them much yet. The corners are a Spellbinders die too, I didn't have my new Wizard machine yet so they aren't embossed as excellently as they will be in the future!
I have a new Spellbinders Wizard machine from Christmas I've been playing with. What an awesome die cutting system, the embossing is fabulous! I'm getting the hang of the Copic ABS1 too, it's fun! Have a wonderful day~
