CDS Day 1 Sneak Peeks - Stegos, Smiles & Slippers

Yay! It's the first day of Clear Dollar Stamp sneak peeks! I have *so* many fun cards to show you this month. There are lots and lots of $1-$2 stamps being released this month. Great for last minute cards or gifts. I'm sure there are lots of us that could stand a few of these in our stocking on Christmas morning! Our children would probably like them too!! :-)

My first card is made with Teeny Stego and the Something to Roar About sentiment. I colored him very simply with Copics and added some grass under him to "ground" him. I inked up the sentiment with Not Quite Navy ink and then cleaned off the word roar (with my thumb...!) and used a marker to ink that word. I didn't want to add a bow since this is a "boy" card, but I couldn't help adding some stitching and brads. :-)

My next project is with Mr. Spike. Isn't he adorable??? He *absolutely* reminds me of the dog on Bugs Bunny and he definitely makes me smile! I decided to alter a piano practice book for my niece. (Aren't I a nice piano teacher??? LOL!) It's much more fun to practice when the book is cute!!
I stamped Spike on Kraft paper and colored him with prismacolors. If you look closely in the next picture, you'll see that there is no dp on this project. I used my white gel pen for the polka dots on the top and I simply drew vertical lines with a ruler for the bottom. Voila! Instant dp!!

I'll leave you for today with this sweet little baby card make with the Bunny Slippers and Snuggle Bunny Stamps. Lots of punches, a few copics, a little designer paper, some stitching and some dimensionals. Soft and sweet and babyish. Awwwwww!!!

Now don't forget to come back tomorrow!! There's so much more to show!!!! And dont forget to check out the other CDS designers. They have such *cute* things to share!!!
