Good morning! Today's the day for Clear Dollar Stamps June release. I have a couple of cards to share using 2 different digital sets...so let's get to it!
My first card features the set "Hanging Out", which is illustrated by Lisa Lara. I loved this set the minute I saw it! It has an assortment of clothing and fun sentiments; it includes line art as well as a colored version. I decided to go with a shabby-chic look for this card; I chose an assortment of DP from the Simple Stories "Fabulous" collection...I actually used 7 different DPs! The tank top is paper pieced and I inked the edges of my papers; for embellishing I used crochet lace, ribbon, and an assortment of goodies.

My second card features the set "What a Melon", also illustrated by Lisa Lara. It includes a variety of melons and sentiments as well, and is perfect for summer! I went for a more CAS look with this one. I printed, colored, cut the watermelon out, and then added a bit of glitter to the seeds. The image panel is popped up and also dry embossed, like the green panel, for a bit of texture. I like the clean lines of this one.
Here's a close-up showing the glitter and embossed texture.
