Wonderful April Release from Clear Dollar Stamps!

Hello Everyone, Clear Dollar Stamps has another amazing release being revealed today at Clearly iStamp.  As one of their designers I have been able to use their wonderful images and I have two cards to share with you.  For my first one, I used Bless my Bloomers set.  It's a wonderful set with so many possibilities.  
Here is my sample card.  I just love watering cans so I was excited to create with this!
I coloured my image with prismas and matted it to some bright green paper from The Paper Company.  I popped this up over some wonderful DP from Stampin' Up and some orangey cardstock from  TPC as well. The ribbons have been wrapped around the orange layer and the pink I tied into a bow.  This sentiment just stuck out to me so I layered on some cardstock which I cut around with some decorative scissors.  The edges have been inked with Windflower green ink.
For my next card I used an image and sentiment from the Sheltering Light set.
I have chosen to colour my own image, although as you can see, they come amazingly coloured as well!  There are tons of sentiments, I had a hard time choosing.  This is the sample that came together.
For this card, I coloured the image with my prismas and I tried to give a bit of a foggy feel to around the lighthouse near the top.  I chose to use the black and red cardstock to highlight the boldness that I always feel from lighthouses.  I also added a panel of DP from K & Company.  The ribbon is from Portafolia.  I used decorative scissors to give the one edge some movement and inked the edges with Stampology black ink.
I hope you've enjoyed seeing these new sets, there are a ton more being showcased over at the Clearly iStamp blog so do head over and check them out.  The design team has created some incredible samples I'm sure you will enjoy seeing! All of these sets are now at the Clear Dollar Stamps Store!
Thanks for dropping by! Have a wonderful day!

Great new stamps Jennifer! I really like the lighthouse ones. You don't see too many of those. Your cards are fantastic. I love the bright colors on your first card and the design on the lighthouse one works so well for that image. Hugs!
