Good Morning! Do you know what today is????? Today is Day #1 for Clear Dollar Stamps Sneak Peek Week! I always get excited sharing my sneak peek samples with my readers during CDS Sneak Peek Week and hope that you all enjoy seeing them, as well. I have two super stamp sets to share with you today, and I'll start with "Hanging Out" illustrated by our Design Team Coordinator, Laurie Wilson. "Hanging Out" is a supercute stamp set that offers a clothesline, several items of clothing to hang on the clothesline, various sentiments and two adorable Magpies! How homespun is that???? For this sneak peek sample, I couldn't wait to ink up the articles of clothing and then paper piece them onto the clothesline. I wanted to used a Summery color scheme, and had this fun different-sized polka dot designer paper, and thought that I'd throw in a little teal to make it all pop. All 3 articles of clothing were stamped on either cardstock or designer paper, then cut out then adhered overtop the underlying stamped image. The clouds were sponged with my trusty handmade cloud template and the little dots around the Nestablities Labels Three were stamped with Clear Dollar Stamps' "Sassy Scallops" stamp set. That set is invaluable! For more great designs using "Hanging Out" see my fellow CDS Design Team Members: Candy Fosta, Cassie Trask, Angela Thomas, Kim Teasdale & Laurie Wilson.
