Happy New Year Clear Dollar Stamps Blog Hop

Tag You're It!
Happy New Year and welcome to our Clear Dollar Stamps blog hop!  If you arrived here from Nancy's blog you're on the right track, if not you might want to start at the beginning here. I highly recommend starting at the beginning, there are a lot of fabulous projects to see and Clear Dollar Stamps has a prize for you too!

The prize for hopping will be the new Tabs & Tags die set along with the 2 matching stamp sets.  The winner will be randomly chosen from a randomly chosen design team blog.  So don't forget to leave a comment on each blog to have a chance to win this fabulous prize!

For my first tag project I used the Clear Dollar Stamps Snowman Cheer pre-colored digital stamp set.  It comes with this cute snowman pre-colored and ready to print as well as the line drawing image.  There's a bonus in this set too, the matching blue gingham digital paper, love it!  

This tag is actually a card, I used an old Sizzix red die for the tag and cut a second one after folding the card stock in half so I'd have a nice card base.  I cut a piece of the blue gingham digital paper into the tag also and then cut a little off the bottom to add to my card base.  I used a ric rac die with a scrap of Neenah red linen card stock to go on top of the blue gingham piece and trimmed off the extra.  The snowman is cut out and matted with a Spellbinders oval and scalloped oval and attached to the card base.  I added snowflakes cut from a die and another tag with the sentiment "happy winter" that's included in the set with blue rhinestones.  Last I added some coordinating ribbon to the top of the tag and tied it with crochet thread.


For my next card I used the Gouda Day pre-colored stamp set from Clear Dollar stamps.  I've had so much fun with the pre-colored stamps sets this last month, they've been perfect for those quick cute cards I've needed during the holidays.  

For this card I printed a little mouse and cut it out with Spellbinder's circle dies then matted my circles onto the Clear Dollar Stamps designer die then added it to another die cut tag and added a bow to the top.  Stampin' Up!s Cameo Coral card stock matched the pink in the mice ears of this set so I went with it! The Cameo Coral panel has been embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder that I don't know the name of, it reminded me of cheese.  The sentiment comes with the stamp set, I changed the color to brown with my Publisher software that I use for all my digi stamps.


My final project is made using the Little Strawberry pre-colored digital stamp set.  I made the super sized tag and attached it to a card base that will fit into a #10 envelope.  The strawberries are printed on Carnival White card stock, cut out and matted with Spellbinders circles.  I used the Cuttlebug Swirls & Swiss Dots embossing folders as well as Spellbinders Ovals for the top of the tag with a scrap of red gingham digital paper that comes with this set.  The tag is another Spellbinders die attached to organdy ribbon from my stash.  

I hope you've enjoyed this stop on the blog hop giving you a taste of our Clear Dollar Stamps digital images today.  Your next stop is the fabulous Christi, enjoy!

Catherine Kraft said...

Each of your cards are so special. The snowman caught my eye due to the colors and I have to admit, gingham happens to be a favorite of mine whether it's fabric or paper. The mouse is sweet and love the way you used the tag dies with this one. Then the strawberries - my kitchen is full of them. Favorite?? Can't choose! Wonderful job!!

Blessings,

Sherri said...

All your projects are beautiful. The colors are so vibrant and alive. You are deginately being added to my favorites list. I can sympothize with your contractor issue. I had ordered my daughters bridal gown and all the brides maid dresses with my tax return they were all in college and were going to pay me back during their summer jobs. Well anyways the company went out of business bancrupt and I lost all of it, Then the photographer who was paid up front has still not given us our products that was 8 months ago. The court and BBB says theirs nothing they can do so I pretty much lost all that money. Anyways thanks for your site it is great.
