All I have to say is the Stamp Designers at Clear Dollar Stamps out did themselves this month!! There were SEVERAL new releases this month and they are all ADORABLE!!

Let me start out by showing you Autumn Blessings Color Digital Stamp. When I saw the four different textures on the pumpkins I thought it would be cool to use all of them. Then I got the idea of putting them in a row like at a pumpkin patch. So I batted my eyelashes and asked hubby if he could make the image in my head become real on paper. Of course he smiled and got to work in Photoshop (he is awesome in Photoshop and stuff like that since he is a computer animator). Then I took his finished product and made this card. Which I’m very happy it turned out. The design was based on a sketch (Day 83 @ 365 Cards)  but that was influced by the scalloped graph paper. I got this paper like 3-4 years ago for Christmas or Birthday and I just opened up the package!! Feels good to use up stuff I have on hand.

CHALLENGES:

1) Stamps R Us Challenge Blog – Autumn/Fall

Let’s head to Christmas for some inspiration. Can you belive it is just AROUND THE CORNER!!! The digital stamp I used is called Christmas Cuties. It comes in outline, colored and in tags. This next card I used the Christmas Cuties Tag Digital Stamp. Super simple and cute card. Got to love that! The design inspiration came from Cute Card Thursday Challenge 183 – Sketch.
