Clear Dollar Stamps - Sneak Peek #2

Well, I promised you bling so that's what I have for you today :) Today's stamp set is called Charlie Snowhorse and as always Charlie is uber cute no matter what he is doing or how he is
dressed. Well, this time around he is up to his neck in snow and looking good. You can acquire your very own Charlie Snowhorse at Clear Dollar Stamps this Saturday - November 1st.

For my first example, I used clear stickles to add all the bling. I love my stickles what can I say. I used it to accent the snow background as well as the large round circles on my paper.

I used my Copics to color Charlie in and my nesties to cut and mat him. My designer paper is from Close to my Heart.

Cardstock:White, Barn Red (CTMH)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Stamps: Charlie Snowhorse (CDstamps)
Other: Copics, Stickles, Nesties

My next sample is also from the the Charlie Snowhorse set. This isn't a huge set and will retail for only $4.99, but it has a lot of bang in my opinion. I kept the tree image clean by just stamping it in one color and then accented with that great Swiss Dots embossing folder. I think this is probably my most used folder. I also used my nesties to cut and emboss and then just added a little sheer ribbon.

Cardstock: White, Cranberry (CTMH)
Ink: Topiary (CTMH)
Stamps: Charlie Snowhorse (CDstamps)
Other: Nesties, Cuttlebug Embossin Folder, Ribbon

And here is another card using the tree image,adding but with the ornaments added to it. I also added some interest by embossing the cardstock I used for my planter bases.

Cardstock: Ponderosa Pine, Chocolate, Cranberry White (CTMH)
Ink: Ponderosa Pine (CTMH)
Stamps: Charlie Snowhorse (CDstamps)
Other: Copics, embossing folder

And finally, my last one. For my last card, I just stamped the ornaments over and over and then colored them in with my Copics and added Liquid Glass to give them dimension.

For the life of me it is harder than a brick wall to get everything to align correctly. I'm sorry if it has gotten you all crazy (lol).

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!

Wow, girl, you went to town with the Charlie snowhorse set! I didn't even think about that tree looking like Charlie brown's tree... how funny! Huh, I guess it kinda does have that quaintness about it, but charlie brown's tree slumped over at the top right? Anyhoo, wonderful use of such few stamps!
