Clear Dollar Stamps Sneak Peeks Day 1

Woohoo!! Today marks my first preview day on the Clear Dollar Summer Design Team ... and I have got some GREAT sets to show you!

Each month, Clear Dollar Stamps previews their new sets during the last few days of the month. Each member of the design team will showcase one or two sets for you to see before the big release on the 1st.

Today, I have the privilege of showing you samples made from "Autumn Critters" and "Spider Greetings."

This card was made using the squirrel, sentiments, and acorns from Autumn Critters. The Rustic Fall Clearly Coordinating paper and ribbon works so perfectly with this set.

The second one from that set is an explosion box which holds a gift card in the center.

The open box.

The second set I have to show you is Spider Greetings. Ooooh, these little spiders are just SO cute!!! (did I just say that spiders are cute?!)

This set just *begged* me to make a shaped card using SCAL and a spider web found ... on the web. :) :)

This shows the card open so that you can get an idea of the shape of the front. The web blackout is welded to a rectangle to make the card. Then, the white web was adhered on top of that.
