Fall Sneak Peeks - Day One

Are you ready for fall??? I actually got out all my fall things today, even though I have *so* much to do! The warm colors are just my favorite!! Another favorite thing that I get to do today is to share previews of three new sets that will be released October 1st at Clear Dollar Stamps.

My first preview uses the set With Thanksgiving which has this beautiful verse from Psalm 100 and a couple of other sentiments that I haven't had a chance to ink up yet. Isn't it pretty??? I decided that I wanted to make a box to corral all of my CD cases full of nestibilities, so I played around with some measurements and made a *very* simple box out of burgundy cardstock. The dp that I used was in my stash and is from Flair - and the image - well, it's Charlie from last month's release of Charlie's Harvest! He is *so* fun to color!!

Here's a close up...

Let me know if you're interested in the measurements and I'll see about posting a tutorial later in the month, ok??

The next card that I have to show you uses a new set in the very popular PatchPal line by Shawne Arnold called Patchpal Scarecrow. Do you see that adorable little kitty that the scarecrow is holding?? You'll have to drop by some of the other blogs with previews today and see if you can spot him in the pumpkin patch. Too cute!!!

I colored Mr. Scarecrow with my copics and stuck with an extremely simple layout to set him off. Remember, you can always click on the pictures if you'd like to see close ups!

The last set that I'm previewing today is the Stamp of the Month set called Harvest Hellos. This set is so much fun to work with!! I love both the solid images, and the font of the sentiments. It's a perfect addition to my fall stamps.

for today's card I decided to stamp the images on cream cardstock and cut them out to make a little scene. I used some staples on the sentiment and a deckle edge scissors on my bottom mat to keep things looking "rustic". I have another card that I'll be showing you later this month that is a totally different look. You can't go wrong with this set - and it's FREE with a $50 order at CDS this month.

That's it for me, but don't miss the other designers who are showcasing new stamps today. (You'll find their links on my sidebar.) You might even find a set or two that I didn't preview!!

Don't forget to stop by tomorrow for more peaks!!
