Onto to Day Three!

**EDITED POST: I just noticed that I forgot to include the inside view of the penguin card. So here it is! ;-)**

And the previews continue on with Clear Dollar Stamps! It's so fun to finally be able to share the cards that I've made earlier in the month just for preview time. It's like being able to blab a secret that you've been holding onto for a long time. What a sweet relief. Today I am giving you a glimpse of "Welcome to Parenthood" and "Just Chillin' ". To see the full stamp sheet please hop on over to Clearly iStamp.

"Just Chillin' " can be mostly used for the holidays whereas "Welcome to Parenthood" is more of a set you can use anytime. I am so in love with that little penguin. He's so cute and reminds me of my grown-up son. For some of the fine details I used stickles to make the icicles and Flower Soft to fluff out his hat. I also use the stickles to glitter up the DP by filling in the bigger white diamonds by doing this it really pulls the card together.

With the "Welcome to Parenthood" card I used the glitter stained glass technique as shared by Amy R of Prairie Paper & Ink. Here's a link to her tutorial: Glitter Stained Glass Technique. It really wasn't that hard to do. What was difficult was waiting for it to dry. Next time I think I'll make a handful of the butterflies or other images so that I can have them on hand as needed.

That's it for today. Please be sure to visit my fellow designers for more glimpses of what's to come. Their links are in my sidebar to the right.

Have a wonderfully blessed day!

"Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross." Philippians 2:5-8
