For the Love of Dots - Day 5

I hope you all had a great Easter! Did you all eat too much, because Chase and I did! We so enjoyed  yesterday.

And tonight's the night! For the Love of Dots will be available at midnight eastern tonight! I've asked three super talented ladies to join me in showing you even more ideas using For the Love of Dots. You may have seen this card on the video I posted Saturday. If you didn't see the video, it's one you don't want to miss. You can view it here.

For this card I stamped the large dots on some patterned paper. I love adding that extra dimension to cards! I used the small dots and some crystal effects to make the dot swirls! And of course the sentiment. Now, do any of you remember those blurred t-shirts like that form the 90's? It was actually the idea for the focal image. Well I stamped the sentiment once in the middle of my Labels 4 die, and stamped a send and third time above it. I inked it up again, stamped off once and stamped two more times below it.
And check these out!

Heidi Van Laar's work is always top-notch, and I just adore this card she made using For the Love of Dots! She inked up the large dots to create this super fun pattern. You'll have to check out her blog for more details.
I actually remember the first time I saw one of Laura O'Donnel's cards! She is so creative! She also used the large dots, but with a totally different look. Notice Heidi set the dots stacked on top of one another, while Laura off set hers! This is one thing I love about this set - FLEXIBILITY!
Amy Heller has great style. I just love her eye for design. For this card she's used the lace circles as a border, and it's just gorgeous.
So go check out those girl's projects! And they'll have more coming this week!

Today's the last day to comment and get another entry in for winning the set! I'll draw the winner tonight at 10 pm Eastern Time. And the set will be available for $12.99 tonight at midnight eastern!
