Clearly Dollar Stamps July Guest designer entry...

OK though I do not personally own any Clear Dollar Stamps I think they are really fabulous and this is no way an oxymoron! I just cannot keep up with all the rockin product I come across...sigh. Anyhow I thought perhaps I could win some freebies by taking a chance for the July Guest Designer Spot you never know!

So here is the great sketch that ClearlyiStamp has created, you can flip and rotate and substitute shapes and embellish to your liking however they want the paneling and such to stay pretty consistent.

I wanted to create something that really expressed me as a person: Obsessive Compulsive! Masking is a great way to stamp so I did an entire 12 x 12 sheet of card stock, I've only done this one other time on white card stock so I thought I'd try color this time. I thought I'd introduce some white via a gel pen.

I also utilized some liquid applique, my Cuttle Bug folders and Spellbinders die cuts plus my handy dandy scissors to create this card. After adding a few brads and some glitter this card felt "finished". Well I'm off to submit this and best wishes to the rest of you who are entering! Beth aka BR-T

Good luck!
