Clear Dollar Stamps February Digi Release

It's Time for another Digi Stamp release at Clear Dollar Stamps.  As usual, there are so many fantastic sets this month that you'll have a hard time choosing which ones to purchase first. I was able to play with two of the new sets.

The first one is called, Pray Without Ceasing and was designed by Deedee Anderson. 

Aren't these children adorable?  There are so many great sentiments and a Scripture verse to let people know you're thinking of them and praying for them.  This is a fantastic set that you will want to have to make encouragement cards of all types. 

I chose to use the girl image and colored her hair and skin with copic markers.  I paper pieced her dress and shoes.  I used my paper piercer and a white pen to make my faux stitching.  A stacked flower and white satin bow finished off the front of the card. 

I like fancy-fold cards, so I chose to make a Double Z-fold Card this time.  You can find a great tutorial for this type of card on SCS.  Here's a view of the interior with the "Praying specifically for you today" sentiment.

Stamps: Pray Without Ceasing
Cardstock:Georgia Pacific (white), DCWV (yellow, card base)
Patterned Paper: Basic Grey (Picadilly)
Copics: E00, E31, E33, E35, E37, R20
Accents/Tools: Uniball Signo White Pen, Tim Holtz Craft Pick, Brad (Making Memories), Ribbon (Wright's), Flowers (Prima), Spellbinders (Petite Ovals, Petite Scalloped Ovals)
Technique: Double Z-fold card, paper piecing, paper piercing, faux stitching

I'm entering this card in the Paper Pretties Wed Challenge (PWC193) - Unique Folds.

The next set I was able to use was the Jesus Paid It All set designed by Laurie Wilson.  As you can see, it has so many wonderful images and sentiments to use for the upcoming Resurrection Sunday/Easter season.  I really like this set because the emphasis is placed on Christ's sacrifice for us when He died on Calvary.  Truly He paid all our sin debt.  We just need to accept His free gift of salvation.

I chose to keep the colors to a minimum to keep the focus on the cross image. I embossed the white layer and mounted it on a lavender panel.  The image of the three crosses is mounted on a petite scalloped oval Nestabilities cut from dark purple.  The same dark purple is behind the sentiment panel. I highlighted the center cross with black diamond stickles.  Purple ribbon and pearls complete the front of the card.

Stamps: Jesus Paid It All

Accents/Tools: Cuttle Bug Embossing Folder (Victoria), Oriental Trading Pearls, Offray Ribbon, Bow Easy, SU Punch, Stickles (Black Diamond), Spellbinders (Petite Ovals, Petite Scalloped Ovals)
I hope you'll stop by the Clearly iStamp blog to see the rest of the digi sets being released today and to see the beautiful projects made by my fellow design team members.
