Clear Dollar Stamps...June Reveal

Ok ladies (and gents) it's the time you've all been waiting for. Drum roll please....

Oh, wait, that's right, I'm not the host of Dancing with the Stars! Well, I'll get on with my reveal then (it's just as exciting anyways...although I wouldn't mind seeing that Jason fellow close up).

Here's my first set to reveal. This is called "Petal Hugs" and is a set of 7 for $7.99. There is a background that coordinates and it is "Petal Fun" for $7.99. I had WAY too much fun with this set...and I normally struggle with floral designs. I'm just not a girly girl kind of woman...but I was truly inspired by this set and the color scheme I went with.

First, here is the whole set I made (then I'll show each item):



Here is the card:



My favorite thing about this card is the green layer. I stamped the flower outline in green ink (so it's hard to see) then I used my piercer and pierced the flowers. Also, the flower itself has stickles (glitter glue) on it.

Here is the pedicure set:



Found this at the $1 store. Thought it'd work perfectly with my colors..and it does! It had a topper and I just made my cardstock the same size and slid it over their topper. Easy enough.

Here is the little mini album:





This is made with two coasters (cut down to 3 1/2 inches) and then one sheet of thin weight paper for the inside. The directions called for "patterned paper" but I just created my own patterned paper by stamping. I covered the coasters with paper as well. The colors match the items above - I wasn't able to get a picture I was thrilled with. The colors look off to me in the picture. Sorry for that.

And lastly...here is the gift bag to store it all in:



Hope you enjoyed today's reveal.

Great little gift set, Jane! I love how you pierced the green piece, too. Very good idea. I might have to case that one some time if you don't mind. :) Kelly
