Clear Dollar Stamps November Release

Welcome to another Clearly Digi Stamps Release Day by Clear Dollar Stamps. This month the digital sets are totally amazing. This release is sure to please and the variety is wonderful. I had a difficult time choosing which sets I wanted to work with. I first decided to work with a set by the ever talented Lisa Lara, called Happy Houses.

Now the possibilities are endless with this digital set. Those houses are the most adorable and can be used for wonderful CAS style cards. Here is my take using this set. I have to say that I love how this card turned out. So bold and bright.
This card is being submitted to the following challenges:
Twisted Tuesday  Stamp on Pattern Paper
Top Tip Tuesday  Include Hearts on Your Project
Forever Friends Anything Goes
 Scrapping Everyday Miracles Family Themed + Ribbon
Word Art Wednesday: Anything Goes
I actually paper pieced this image together. I printed the image on several types of patterned paper and bright coloured cardstock. The windows were left white and coloured in with Tombo markers. The shading on the roof, around the windows, around the grass edge, on the chimney and around the entire scene was with Staedtler Watercolour pencils. The front panel was adhered to a black cardbase. To pull it all together, yellow Baker's Twine was tied around the bottom portion of the card. Using bright and cheerful papers really can make a card pop!!!

Journaling Pen:Tombo White Gel Pen
Embellishments: Baker's Twine by Studio Calico

The next set that I had the privilege to work with was the Get Well Critter Digital set by the very talented Laurie Wilson. It was difficult to pick just one cute critter. Lol.
These cuties are so great for those cards that you want to add, with a Care Package. They can even be used for tags that can be tied around the handle of a yummy Fruit Basket. I fell in love with that absolutely adorable mouse first when I saw this kit and just knew what I wanted to create. Are you like that? See something right away and know what you are going to make with it!! Well this was one of those times for me. Here is what I came up with.
This card is being submitted to the following challenges:
Can You Digi It : Favorite Animal
 Craft Room Challenge  Punches & Die Cuts
  Papertake Weekly Flower Power
Word Art Wednesday: Anything Goes
The image was printed on watercolour paper and then coloured with watercolour pencils. Pink areas were coloured with Staedtler Tri-Plus fine tip markers. Yellow note card was die cut using Sizzix Machine and a Spellbinders die. After colouring, the image was adhered to the note card and embellished with pastel coloured pearls. A strip of teal blue paper was cut in banner style and placed down the front of a kraft cardbase. White ribbon was tied around the card before adding note card with mouse. To tie everything together, and to bring a little more attention to the rust colour in the image, a flower of the same colour was added to the card front. To complete the card a sentiment was added to the cardfront. Voila! A cute and whimsical card! Lol.
