Sing to the Lord...

I have one last stamp to share with you today and it is such an uplifting stamp to use and to share. "Sing to the Lord..." is a single stamp from Clear Dollar Stamps, also to be released on February 1st. This card's layout and design sort of evolved as I went along. I didn't have a real plan when I started out making this one, but I knew that I wanted to use the "Bitty Botanicals" again from CDS and incorporate this Basic Grey designer paper that had multiple hearts within it's design. So, I pulled from the lavendar, red and green colors. I also used the Nestabilities Ribbon Tag Trio Die for the first time, although it had been sitting in my stash for several months...I wanted to use it to frame the flowers from "Bitty Botanicals" I cut an additional oval, stamped the flowers on that, then popped that on top of the Nestabilities' Ribbon Tag Die, coloring each dot that is embossed all around the oval, in red, to further carry out the red contrast. The hearts are made from a small older punch and a Cuttlebug heart die. "Sing to the Lord...", a single, sentiment stamp will be useful and very versatile to your stamp collection. Tomorrow, I'll have another Clear Dollar Stamp single stamp to preview as well as an awesome stamp set, so I hope that you visit here again.

The DT members who created with this single stamp are:
Cassie Trask
Nancy Grant
