Clear Dollar Stamps Sneak Peek - What a Hoot

You wouldn't believe how much ink I was wearing when I made this card...not to mention my floor! This is a new release for October from Clear Dollar Stamps called What a Hoot and it will be available in just 1 1/2 days :)

For every release, the Clear Dollar Divas are set up with some challenges for making our samples. This one was for the No Designer Paper Challenge and it wasn't that hard...just messy! I felt like I was back in kindergarten again diving straight into the ink pads to get this card colourful :) Let me just say that I still have ink under my fingernails and ink marks to clean off my floor (dropped my brayer one too many times....ughh). To top it all off, as if I wasn't messy enough, I smeared my hand through my Sakura Gelly Roll Glitter Pen trails! I had outlined all of the D'Vine Swirls embossing with the glitter pen and this card has a gorgeous moonlight "glow" to it, but kinda hard to tell in the photos.

So we have me covered in ink and glitter, well now lets just add some caramel fun flock to that mixture! I had just opened up my bottle when one of my darling children came in and tipped over the bottle. - Fun times, let me tell you!!! lol
