New Releases for February at CDS Today!

Today brings lots of great new digis at Clear Dollar Stamps (Clearly Digi Stamps) for the month of February!  You can see all of the new items over HERE on the CDS blog.

The first set I used was Monster Mash.  I opted for a pretty clean and simple design so that this card would be suitable for a little boy's birthday.

Card supplies

Papers:  White base, blue for mats, dp from DCWV "The Glitter Stack"
Other:  Copic markers, Nestabilities circle dies, star punch
Card size:  A2

The second set I used was Bird in Hand.  My first impulse was to use the cardinal in this set, but then I thought I could use the hummingbird along with some pretty flower paper that I've been hoarding.

Happy Bear-thday!

I hadn't gotten around to trying the colored digis available at Clearly Digi Stamps, and since I've been battling a nasty stomach bug this week, it seemed like a good time to try one.  A card certainly goes together faster without having to take the time to color an image!  I do love coloring the images though so it seemed a little strange to leave out that step!

I used this cute bear scene from CDS called "S'mores Bears."  I just cut it out with a circle die, layered some dps and I had my card.  It was one of the quickest cards I've made in a long time!

Here's the inside.

Card size:  A2
