NEW Michael's Clear Stamps!!

Hello Ai fans!

Welcome to the Art Impressions new release of Michael's clear stamps.  

There are three wonderful new sets available...

Spare Me SC0680
Get Well SC0681
Got Style SC0678 

The set I'm sharing is SPARE ME!

The new challenge is called Show Off Your Stamp
When I get my stamps I place them in clear CD cases and then I index them in a binder. The number in the circle tells which case they're in and I also put the name and or sku number on the page too.

I used one of the fun verses on the inside of my card.

Even if you're not a bowler (which I'm not) this set is so much fun!
That doesn't mean I don't TRY to just means...yeah...I'm not a bowler.

I made two different versions that were almost identical.  I just changed up the colors on the bags and clothes and the skin color on the ladies.

Here's a fun little tip.  Sometimes I don't feel like paper piecing.  Maybe I don't have just the right paper for the look I want.  I took a very fine point black marker and I created the diamond pattern on the ladies shirts.  You can see the plain look on the pink and orange shirts if you scroll back up.  I like how it turned out.

Now onto my masculine version.  Isn't this guy the best?
I found this amazingly adorable paper stack from American Crafts at Michael's for only $5.00.  I was instantly in love when I saw the bowling papers.  It also has some movie themed papers that I can't wait to use with At the Movies Set (Sku#4237).

I stamped the pin that I used on the front repeatedly on the inside in combination with the verse.

So do you LOVE LOVE LOVE these as much as I do?

Fantastic cards, Renee!! Love that bowling paper! I really like how you added a pattern to their shirts. I like using my Copic multiliners to add patterns to their clothing as well.

Yes, I love these as much as you do!! I love that you added the diamond pattern to their shirts - and I can't believe that you had that background paper!!
