Good Morning! Today is the beginning of Clear Dollar Stamps' July Sneak Peek Week! And, today I'm sharing a gorgeous new stamp set called "Sheltering Lights" that is one of my very favorite CDS stamp sets (so far - wink, wink) because I am a lighthouse lover, as well as anything nautical. This stamp set is a "must have" as it contains 2 beautifully illustrated lighthouses, by Laurie Wilson, as well as several pretty coordinating sentiments. For this card, I was striving to create a coral, sandy, clean feeling. I used my new Nestabilities Inverted Circle Dies along with the Regular Round and Scalloped Round Dies, and it created an interesting shape as well as texture to frame my stamped image. I used my Copic Sketch Markers to color and blend the main image on this, and worked my Cuttlebug quite a bit for texture on this card. The sentiment/quote is one of the sentiments included in the stamp set. To see other "Sheltering Lights" samples, see Candy Fosta, Nancy Grant, Stacy Morgan, Katie Renz, Sarah Taylor, Kim Teasdale, Cassie Trask & Laurie Wilson. "Sheltering Lights" will be released July 1st and is only available at www.newcleardollarstamps.com.
