Clear Dollar Stamps Sneak Peeks Day 2




Good morning!! I am really excited about the Clear Dollar Stamps sneak peeks I have for you on day two !! Believe me, it was really hard to decide which ones to showcase today!! Since this set is one of my faves, I decided today was the day for this adorable little bear. This set is called Spring Critters and has 19 stamps in the set: a bunny, chick, broken egg (two pieces), bear with a ball, beaver, two ladybugs, worm, and ten sentiments!! WOW, what a deal and it will be available on January 1!!

The sweet little bear was stamped with Memento Black, colored with copics, cutout with Nestabilities, and attached with dimensionals. The designer paper, Whisper White cs, Soft Sky cs , Sahara Sand cs, and ribbon are from Stampin Up!, and the copper pearls are from Stamper's Dream. The sentiment "Hope Your Birthday is a Ball" was also stamped with Memento Black onto Whisper White, cutout with Nesties, and attached with dimensionals. Laurie Wilson, CDS DT Coordinator, challenged us to make a card with a charm or something dangling so I added the sweet little silver heart by attaching it to the ribbon with silver cording to qualify for the challenge.




I just love this adorable set called Charliene Cowgirl designed by Laurie Wilson, Design Team Coordinator for Clear Dollar Stamps!!
The set includes four image stamps, five sentiments and will be available on January 1.

Charliene was stamped with Memento Black onto Whisper White, colored with copics, cutout with Nestabilities, and attached with dimensionals. The sentiment which says "Kick up your hooves!" was also stamped with Memento Black, cut out with a Nestie and attached over the prima. Barely Banana and Baja Breese were used for the cardstock and the paper is from Basic Grey's Urban Prairie collection. Ribbon from Papertrey Ink and the little horse shoe from the stamp set finish it off.





Charliene was stamped with Memento Brown onto Whisper White, colored with copics, cutout with Nesties, and attached with dimensionals. The sentiment, "Hope you're filly'n fine" was also stamped with Memento Brown, cutout with Nesties, and attached with dimensionals. Pink Pirouette, Chocolate Chip, and Basic Grey Sugared papers were used and Stampin Up! ribbon, felt flower, pink rhinestones, and a gold brad are the finishing touches.
