CDS Sneak Peek - Double Post!

Aren't these squirrels hilarious? I giggle ever time I look at them :) This is a new set of stamps soon to be released by Clear Dollar Stamps on August 1st. These little guys have been made 3D and they literally pop off the page! I made the tree using the piece of tree stamp and then turned it upside down and stamped it again to elongate the tree and to show the feet poking out. The leaves have been created by using a sizzix leaf die.

Card Recipe:

Stamps: Clear Dollar Stamps - Just Nutty
Paper: Papertrey White, Watercolour, Basic Grey DP and K&Co DP, Bazzill Bling
Ink: SU Markers, Basic Black, Versa Mark, Soft Sky, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa
Accessories: Sewing Machine, Hodgepodge Hardware, Sizzix, Cuttlebug, Photo Corner Punch, Decorative Scissors, Dimensionals, Gel Pen

I made this one using one of the single stamps being released by Clear Dollar stamps for my nefews 1st birthday! This seal is so easy to colour so I thought that I would incorporate him into a circus theme :) I used one of the new Stampin' Up! incolours called Pacific Point can coated it with stickles. The DP was run through my cuttlebug for extra texture and the ball was created with a circle punch and some designer papers - to make it shiny, I added a layer of crystal effects.
