Clear Dollar Stamps Sneak Peeks Day 3



Good morning everyone!! This is day three of the Clear Dollar Stamps sneak peeks and today I am going to showcase the adorable Spring Critters stamp set. This set has 19 stamps, nine images and 10 sentiments and will be available Jan. 1 !!

This cute little worm and the sentiment "Inching By To Say Hi" were stamped with Memento Black onto Whisper White. The image was colored with Gable Green, Pretty in Pink, and Regal Rose markers, both were cutout with Nestabilities, and attached with dimensionals. A Mothermark faux cloud template and Bashful Blue were used to create the clouds, and the ribbon, Prima, and the pretty pink pearls finish it off. This is also for the sketch challenge that out Design Team leader, Laurie Wilson developed for our creative pleasure!!




This super cute little chick and the sweet little ladybugs from the Spring Critters set are just sooo adorable!!!
Laurie gave us another challenge to create a paper tole project. The chick was stamped twice using Memento Black, once on the white cs that was sponged with clouds using the Mothermark template, and once on the yellow Basic Grey Urban Prairie dp. The yellow chick was cut out and popped up on dimensionals over the stamped image on the card stock. The ladybugs were both stamped twice, also, once on the main image with Memento Black and once with Craft Black on a piece of scrap white. The ladybugs stamped with the craft ink were embossed with clear ep, cutout, and attached with dimensionals over the main image stamped ladybugs. The grass was created with a scrap piece of Old Olive cs. After the blades of grass were cut, they were ruffed up a bit, and attached to the main image. The scallops were made with Baja Breeze cs that was run through the cuttlebug with the Dotted Swiss folder and the Stampin Up! scallop border punch, then matted with the black scallops. The Basic Grey Urban Prairie dp layered with black served as the background layer and punches were used to create the sentiment layers. Primas, ribbon, and a clip were added to finish it off.





The cute little beaver with the big teeth just cracks me up.....too, too cute!!! He was stamped with Memento Brown onto vanilla cs and colored with copics. He really looks yellow in the picture but the color matches the dp better in real life!! He was layered on the square Close to Cocoa medallion (you will find the tutorial for the medallion here on Taylor's blog) and Baja Breeze. The beautiful paper is from Granny's Kitchen and the old buttons came from my stash of antique shell buttons. The sentiment, "I miss you this munch! " was also stamped with Memento Brown and attached to the Baja Breeze cuttlebugged layer. The organdy ribbon finished it off.
Thanks for coming to take a look today and tomorrow I will show you the last three cards that will showcase the Stamp of the Month for January. It's free when you order $50.00 worth of goodies at Clear Dollar Stamps. Be sure to check out the other DT members blogs for some fabulous inspiration!!

These cards just made me say "Ahhhhhhh!" My DS wanted to know what I was talking about so I showed him -- he gave a grunt of approval (keep in mind Joan, he's 13! But a grunt is a huge honor!!!). So super cute!!!
