Clear Dollar Stamps Sentimental Quilt


It's the middle of September already and time for Clear Dollar Stamps new release digital images!  

For my first card today I used Sentimental Quilt in the pre-colored version and one of the digital papers that come in the set. This quick cute card is going in my birthday card stash.

I have a supply list below for you today:
Stamps/Images:  Clear Dollar Stamps Sentimental Quilt
Cardstock/Papers:  Basic Black, Stampin’ Up! Orchid Opulence, Mohawk Bright White, Digital paper that comes in this set
Inks/Markers:  HP OfficeJet 6000
Accents/Tools:  Spellbinders Circles dies


My second card uses the new digital stamp set Sunshine & Smiles.  I'm so glad I was able to use this wonderful digital image because I love sun flowers and it was really fun to color.  I used Copic markers and experimented a little with the darker background using B41 and was thankful I could blend it out.  Those darker backgrounds always scare me!
