CDS January New Releases:



It's a chilly -37C (-34.6F) out there today!  It's supposed to be even colder tomorrow - brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!
And that is all I have to say about that!!!

On to the real business of the day:  it's New Release Day at Clear Dollar Stamps.  

I am sharing two cards today, the first is a pre-colored digi Ark of Faith.  I am pretty sure pre-colored digis are made for people like me that are still practicing coloring :)

Card Ingredients:  Clear Dollar Stamps Digi;  Clear Dollar Stamps and Recollections papers;  Recollections cardstock;  Labels 18 and Oval Nesties;  Martha Stewart baker's twine;  Dress It Up button;  Creatology metal embellishment.  Tools:  sewing machine.

I made this baby boy card for the following challenges:  Dutch Dare - for the boys;  Crafty Boots - new beginnings;  Crazy 4 Challenges - monochromatic in blues.

 ***
My second card features Josephine Clematis:
Card Ingredients:  Clear Dollar Stamps Digi;  K&Co papers;  Recollections cardstock;  Copics (R89, R85, R8, G 28, G24, G21);  Stampendous! sentiment stamp;  CraftSmart Chocolate and Gold inks;  Labels 18 Nestie;  Hero Arts lace;  We R Memory Keepers Lollopop twine; recycled button and ribbon;  Recollections pearls.  Tools:  sewing machine.

I made the Clematis card for the following challenges:  Sentimental Sundays - ribbon with a sentiment;  Sugar Creek Hollow - embossing;   Come and Get It - sketch:


Well stay warm out there my friends - if you live anywhere close to me, be sure to where your mittens and scarf!

Annette said...

Hi Deanne, I love these two and loving the baby sentiments that I've seen from you lately. soooo cute. I'm shocked about how cold it is where you are. It is zero here and I'm sat in my kitchen with my hubby's mountain fleece on, thick socks and a hot wheat bag that gets pinged in the microwave every hour to keep my lap warm!! I'm such a wimp !!! LOL Stay warm honey, stay inside and keep these fab creations coming. Annette xx
