Special Preview Friday ... AND a Free File!!

Woohoo! I have a special Clear Dollar Stamps' Preview for you today.

Today, I'm showing samples of "A Gift for You" and "Happy Birthday, Jesus," two customer requested stamps from Clear Dollar Stamps. On Clearly iStamp today, there are more great examples of these stamps, as well as a preview of another wonderful set. So make your way over there as soon as you've checked out my samples and left a comment to let me know what you think.

A Gift for You is a perfect stamp for a gift card or tag. It's perfect for any occasion, but I chose to highlight it as a Christmas stamp in my sample. I used the Cricut to cut the layers - 2 tag layers and 2 layered squares. The Cuttlebug embossed the white layer, and ribbon was put all over it. :) I like the ribbon on this one.

Stamps - A Gift For You
Paper - red, brown, olive, white
Ink - Memento black
Accessories/Tools - Cricut, SCAL, ribbon, Cuttlebug, folders, pop dots, little circle punch

Happy Birthday Jesus. That's what Christmas is all about, right? Let's put our focus back on Him. This stamp is great for that!! I chose to spotlight it on an ornament this time. On this one, I used the Cuttlbug to emboss the frame on a piece of white. Then, I imported that into SCAL so that I could use the Cricut to cut it out for me. After I cut it at the regular size, I embossed it with that folder, and I added a shadow layer - or 2 (red and black), some ribbon and gold dots, and popped it all up with pop dots.

Stamps - Happy Birthday, Jesus
Paper - red, black, white
Ink - Real Red, Memento London Fog
Accessories/Tools - Circut, SCAL, Cuttlebug, folder, gold dots, pop dots, sponge dauber, ribbon

So ... to entice you further, would you like the file to cut this great shape? Well, here ya go!

Just import this .jpg into SCAL and cut at whatever size you'd like. I believe that I cut it (keeping proportions) at w = 5.30" to use it for the Cuttlebug embossing folder.

These stamps are great additions to my arsenal for gift cards and other great items. I know you will want to grab these when they are released for sale by Clear Dollar Stamps on October 1!

Join me again Monday for another great preview day!!! Super-great sets being released in October, and you won't want to miss any of the previews by the Design Team.

Have a fantastic Friday and a great, big, beautiful tomorrow.
