One MORE Day to Go!!!

One more day to go until all the new debut stamps will be available at Clear Dollar Stamps. Here's a few more of my preview samples made with the upcoming "Country Bridges" set. This collection has two country bridge scenes with four autumn background accompany stamps and the phrase, "Country Heritage". This set totally reminds me of my husband's family. It's their style all the way.

I had fun coming up with a different combination of projects with "Country Bridges". It includes a frame, a card, and a wall decoration. The first project I did was the BIA (Bind-it-All) bracket chipboard frame. I used the protective insert that came with the BIA bracket chipboard packaging as the main stand. It's at least twice the thickness of a single cover and is very sturdy. Originally the frame was going to be a diorama card but I like this much better. Not only that, it includes a picture of my husband's grandparents which is a perfect match with "Country Bridges".

Next up was the card. My inspiration here were the DT challenges. I managed to squeeze in two challenges into one card (color challenge and to include a fuzzy element). Don't cha just love the flourish pipe cleaner corner pieces? I know I do!

The final "Country Bridges" sample was the autumn wall hanging. This one also incorporated the same two challenges as in the card. It might be hard to see in the photo so I thought I'd mention that the background includes the dry embossed lines that I made with my Scor-Pal.

Anyhow, I hope you like my addition to the design team projects. Each one reminds me of my upcoming move to Oregon. (That's where some of my husband's family lives.) How precious is my time left here in Barrow.


All the stamps used on these projects were from Clear Dollar Stamps.

These are beautiful Nancy. I love the way you've used both parts of the nesabilities die cut to create different projects. Fab idea.

Wow, all your cards are so impressive, but love your first one. I seriously like how the bridge is an accent, but it totally adds to the look of the card.
