CDS Sneak Peek - Rosebud Scrolls

Oh, goody, goody, gumdrops! I'm here to day to start the bombardment of Clear Dollar Stamps sneak peeks *grin* This is the time of the month that I love, because I get to show you what I have been working on all month in the time period of just 4 short days...that means multiple posts people! And how excited are you for all of this? Hehehehe!

The first post of the day is showcasing one of Shawne Arnold's newest stamps from her line Studio 313. This is a set called Rosebud scrolls and it compliments one of her other new releases that I will be showing you a little later today - I have to build up the suspense! *wink*

I wanted to make an elegant thank you card so I paired it up with another CDStamps set called Words of Gratitude that was released last month. Although this card may look like alot of work it was incredibly easy and fairly simple to reproduce in quantities. I stamped the scrolls onto vellum cardstock with Versamark and then added some white embossing powder then heat set. This alone brings oodles of elegance to this card :) I chose soft colours and shabby-ish designer papers to gently play off the contrast of the white vellum. I then added a vellum butterfly using a Martha Stewart Punch, a bit of ribbon, some pearls and optional, I love cards that come together quickly!

As I said earlier, I will be back later with another CDS gem to show you, but until then feel free to pop by these blogs for all of the other sets being previewed today. Also, just a reminder that the Guest Designer Challenge is on now! Please click here for details :)
