Clear Dollar Stamps Sneak Peak #3

I've got two posts today :) so keep going if you have time.

What a Hoot! Hoo, Hoo, Hooray! Isn't' he or she the cutest? I really enjoyed inking this little owl up - FOR SURE :) This little guy and a whole bunch of new releases will be available at Clear Dollar Stamps on October 1st!

For the 1st card, I decided to go a bit more a la natural. I used PTI Kraft cardstock as my card base and then added Cloud 9 Designer paper and then wrinkled/distressed the edges surround the stamped image. I colored my owl with copics and then finished it off some CTMH twill ribbon.


Recipe:
Cardstock: Kraft (PTI), Desert Sand, Colonial White (CTMH)
DP: Cloud 9 Designs
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Stamps: What a Hoot (CDStamps)
Other: Twill Ribbon (CTMH), Copics, Nestability Label Die, Brads







My next card was done in blue's and I used a piece of chipboard from my stash as the branch. Also added a bit of white fun flock to the owl. If you haven't tried fun flock you really should. It adds such a cool detail to your stamped images.




Recipe:
Cardstock: White (CTMH), DP: CTMH, Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Stamps: What a Hoot (CDStamps), Other: Copics, Chipboard, Fun Flock Nestability Tag Die, SU! Ticket Punch.


For my last card, I went completely peachy. Laurie Wilson, the CDS DT Coordinator always has fun challenges for us to focus on while we are making our samples. I personally love these and using some sort of peachy color was one of them. This card kind of reminds me of a yummy creamsicle too. I love the pink and peach together.

Recipe:
Cardstock: Taffy, Baby Pink, White (CTMH), Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Stamps: What a Hoot (CDStamps), Other: Embossing Folder, Circle and Scallop Punches, Copics, PTI Ribbon
