So for the next two weeks it is Anything Goes at Clearly iStamp! So get in your crafty space and create a card to share with us! Better yet see if you have any Clearly Digi Stamps you can pull out and play with.

I decided to make a card with Baby Blessings as a friend of mine is a grandma for the  first time! The small buttons from Lasting Impressions are perfect for this digital image.

Welcome to Monthly Blog Hop at Clearly Digi Stamps! This month’s theme is SPRING CLEANING – use something from your stash. I hope you will enjoy looking at crafty things the girls found in their rooms to make beautiful creations with. For hoping along with us you have 7 chances to win a digital stamp for Clearly Digi Stamps. All you do is leave comments on each members blog and then the Designer gets to pick a winner from their blog! The winner from each blog gets the digital stamp that the designer used! So that means with 7 Designers in this hop there will be 7 different winners!! How awesome is that?!! So leave me a comment (and your email) and you will have a chance to win the digital stamp I used…..Doggies and Things.

If you are just joining us head on over and start at the beginning on Lori’s Blog. If you just came from Lisa’s Blog – Lisa’s Life Lines you are in the right spot.

Even though my whole house needs Spring Cleaning Linda only asked us to go through our Craft Supplies and use something that had dust on it! Well, I had my pick since most of my stuff is from before the local Scrapbook Store closed in 2006! Yes, you read that right almost 7 years ago! Couldn’t find the date on the paper but know it is OLD…am I the only one that still has this paper!? The bone paperclip I got when I worked at the LSS prior to 2006. I think I cleaned a little as this is a card we will make in card class since I have ALL the supplies and need to get rid of them! The digital stamp is NOT old but is actually BRAND NEW…..Just released!! And you have a chance of winning it just for leaving me a comment. This set has so many options….scroll down to the next post to see how I made it into a sympathy card.

Time for new digital stamps!

4 Comments

Good Morning!  It is March 15th so it is time to release new digital stamps at Clearly Digi Stamps. They are oh so cute and so many different ones I’m sure you will find something you JUST HAVE TO HAVE!! I have to say I am very thankful for being on the design team otherwise my WHOLE allowance would be at Clearly Digi Stamps!

Since I’m a dog lover and have 4 doggies I was so glad when I got to play with the new digital stamp called Doggies and Things.

I used Try Stampin’ on Tuesday Sketch #108 as my inspiration. I turned the sketch sideways and put the sentiment directly on the background.  I love how it turned out. This card is for some friends of ours that had to say goodbye to their longtime companion a week ago.

And if you want to see it used in a funny way come back on Sunday for our blog hop! I used this stamp so you will have a chance to win it just for leaving me a comment during the blog hop! Plus, I really like my card I did for Sunday so I would love for you to come back and see it!

CHALLENGES:

1) PanPastel Challenge #10 – Girly Theme. They probably wanted something happy but this card was made girly to represent the girl doggie they lost this past week.

2) March Card Challenge @ scrapbook.com – Product Category – Lace. I made mine with a punch and paper!

Okay enough begging for you to come back on SUNDAY!! Now here is the second card I made with a new digital stamp called Bandaids.  I used Freshly Made Sketches #76 as inspiration. I also used 3 Bandaids which fit the challenge at Sentimental Sundays!

As you can see tons of options with this stamp. I have a couple more ideals in my head that I want to try so I’m sure you will be seeing this stamp again.

CHALLENGES:

1) Pause Dream Enjoy Challenge #5  – For the boys! I made this card masculine since I never have enough masculine Get Well cards.

2) Sentimental Sundays Challenge #1453 Embellishments That Start w/ the Letter “B”  (plus a sentiment)  They can be 3 of the same or 3 different embellishments. Please be sure to tell us what 3 embellishments you in your project this week.
