CDS Dairy Delights by Louby Loo Preview

Good Morning Friends,
Today is preview day at Clear Dollar Stamps and i have a card using the deliciously sweet "Dairy Delights" clear stamp set by Louby Loo Creations and digital accessories to show you.

I used the ice cream cart from the ice cream parlor digi's, printed it out twice, cut the wheels and the awning off one of the images, colored and pop dotted them to the main cart to give them some dimension. For the awning i taped the top to the main image and added the pop dots a little lower on the main image to make it flair out some. looks pretty neat IRL. i added some white flat back pearls to the middle of my wheels to make them stand out a bit. for the background mat on my card i used the Argyle embossing folder and tried to make the appearance of a waffle cone to go with the cute little sundae stamps that i used from the Dairy Delights stamp set. I also used the stamp "Here's the scoop" for the name of my ice cream cart. Now i just used the sundaes from the set, but take a look at the adorable stamps that make up the rest of this set:

"Dairy Delights" Clear Stamp Set

Okay, now if that wasn't just the Sweetest, take a look at the fabulous Digi images that compliment the stamp set pefectly!! These images are available already colored or black and white, whichever you prefer.

The "Dairy Delights" Clear Stamp set will be available at Clear Dollar Stamps on July 1st. The Ice Cream Parlor Digital Accessories will also be available on July 1st at the Digital Delights Digi Shop.

Thank you so much for stopping by and Have a Fabulous Day!!!

Bah Humbug

Good Morning my friends,
Well i sure hope you are reading this post right now seeing as how i had to schedule it, so i just hope it worked. LoL!!
Anyways, today is my week off from The Character Cafe challenge so i'm blogland bound looking for challenges to enter my Sassy Miss Priss Card into. The Bah Humbug sentiment is also included with one of the images in the set. I chose to cut it apart and use it on it's own.

Close up of the Adorably Sassy Miss Priss

I chose to use the Miss Priss image from The Character Cafe to enter her into the Digital Tuesday, Christmas in June Challenge. boy, by the look on her face she is not so keen on Christmas in June. a little too early for her maybe? I also used the sketch over at Truly Scrumptious for my card. I'm also going to enter her into the ABC Challenge ~X for Xtra dimension.
Well i guess that's it for me today, I will be back on Monday to comment on all my blogging buddies blogs then. Till then be sure to check out The Character Cafe blog and join the Feature Friday Challenge for this week. we'd sure love to see what you make.
For more inspiration using TCC images be sure to check out my TCC sisters creations. They all have an Amazing TCC creation to show you today. Their links can be found on my sidebar.

Feature Friday #22

Happy Friday!!!
WoW i seem to be saying that alot. these fridays are coming way too fast! LoL
Welcome to Feature Friday #22 with The Character Cafe. Today we have another technique challenge for you:

For my card today i used the newly released Hillary Hippo image, isn't she a sweetie!! I printed her out twice, once on some flower dp from Close To My Heart and then on white cardstock. I colored in all the pieces i wanted colored with my copics first, then I cut out the flowered body from the dp and glued it to my white image. The hippo birthday sentiment is also included on one of the images. i just used my punch to separate it and added it to the top of my card. Paper piecing is so much fun, it's also a great way to use up some of that leftover dp you have laying around.

Now it's your turn, grab an image and paper piece away. Be sure to upload your creation to Mr. Linky on The Character Cafe blog before next Thurs. at Midnight. Can't wait to see what you come up with. Would you like more inspiration? Check out the DT that participated in this week's challenge on The Character Cafe blog. The rest of the DT have entered challenges around blogland using TCC images. you can find all their links on my sidebar.

Have a Terrific Day!!!

King of the Grill

hello friends,
I'm back with another card from the newly released Backyard Barbeque clear stamp set available at Clear Dollar Stamps.

I've seen this apron shaped card, (template used here)being used around blogland and thought it would be perfect with this set. Can't you just see giving this cute card to the cook after being invited to a tasty BBQ? for my card I took the apron template and laid the top against the folded edge of my cardstock and traced the template and just cut it out. I covered my card using some big gingham Dp to give the look of the tablecloth usually found covering the picnic table lol ~added some of the images from the stamp set and my sentiment and there you have it, a quick easy card. The King of the Grill sentiment is also a newly released Digi image that can be found at the Digital Delights digi shop along with some other fabulous accessories that go perfectly with this set. Don't forget, this set is also perfect for all those BBQ scrapbook layouts. Well, that's all i have for now be sure to check out this Have to have summer set and it's coordinating accessories.

Challenges i entered King of the Grill into:

A Crafty Little Place~Anything but a square

Cards for men~Father's Day

Kl Stampin N Scrappin challenge~ shape challenge

Fresh Brewed Designs Challenge #5 Just for Kids

Hello to you all,
Today Sweet Heather at Heather's Coffee Break is having a new release blog hop for her Fresh Brewed Designs images. as i was hopping along i came across this adorable new image Hannah Belle with Kitty. I just instantly knew i had to have this image as we just got my girls a new kitten not too long ago and this image definately relates to them. They actually fight to see who will brush out his fur. No matter how much they bother him he just absolutely loves them. The "Forever Friends" sentiment i used is from the Friendship set by AmyRstamps over All That Scraps. I thought it worked out perfectly. The sketch i used is this week's sketch from SCS.

Of coarse, how could i make this card using this adorable image and not enter it into the Freshly Brewed Challenge. the theme being Just For Kids. So head on over and enter your kid cards, i'm sure Heather would love to see them.
You all have a Wonderful Night or day!! :0)
