I saved the BEST for last!

Ok...this is the last set I am showcasing for Clear Dollar Stamps. The new stamps were released THIS MORNING. So go get your new sets!

The last set I'm showcasing is called "Tool Time". It is a set of 12 for $7.99.

I have three older brothers who were always working on cars so I am ALL about this set!

For my first sample I made a gift card holder:

Outside:


Inside:


If you look closely you will also see that I used a new stamp called "Heavy Metal". I stamped in tone on tone as a background. The colors didn't photograph as well as I'd like. It's really kind of the colors of Home Depot (that's what I was going for) but the photo doesn't really show that. How great would this be with a gift card enclosed for Home Depot as a Christmas present? I know my brothers would love it!

For my last sample I stayed with the same colors and made a birthday card. This birthday card also uses one of the newly released cuttlebug folders called Argyle. And I used REAL hardware on this card! LOL. They probably thought I was a little wierd at Ace Hardware as I was in there picking out four of this and four of that in the washer aisle. I wasn't sure what I'd need for my cards but knew I wanted some real washers to use on here. This is what I came up with...



Hope you like the samples.

Just as an FYI with the holidays coming up...there is another set that I REALLY like that I didn't get to design with. It's called Sweet Accents. It has different sayings to go with different candies. I think it's adorable. So you might want to check it out as well.

Have a wonderful holiday!
