Clear Dollar Stamps November Release Sneak Preview Day 1!!

Woohoo! Another month of wonderful stamp sets and samples being released at Clear Dollar Stamps.

Today, I'm showing off 2 fantastic sets - Get Well Critters and Get Well Sentiments. Both sets will be available on Monday, November 1.

Oh my gosh!! Isn't this mouse just absolutely adorable?! I just LOVE him. I just hate that he has a boo boo. But, wouldn't he make you feel better if you got him on a card? I just know he would. :)

The gray layer has been crinkled and distressed. I, then, rubbed it with white pigment ink to highlight the distressing.

Stamps - Get Well Critters
Paper - gray, pink, white blue
Ink - Memento black, white pigment Copics (R81, C1, C3, C5, YR61, B000, B00, blender)
Accessories - ribbon, Cricut, SCAL, sewing machine, crystals, flowers, pop dots

On my second sample of this set, I used the precious turtle and 'feel better' sentiment. Stacking several flower shapes together on top of an oval punch was a little twist, but one that paid off.

Stamps - Get Well Critters
Paper - gray, black, white, yellow, apricot
Ink - Memento black, caramel, Copics (C1, C3, C5, E33, E37, G21, G24, BG72, E71, E77, B21)

The next set that I'm previewing is made to go along with Get Well Critters and is called Get Well Sentiments.

What a great set for get well cards. Doesn't need a ton with it to make it an effective message to a friend or relative.

Stamps - Get Well Sentiments

Ink - Memento black, London Fog, Copics (Y11, Y15, Y17)

The last sample I have for you today is an altered tin. Fill this with some mints or cough drops, and pass it along to a sick or hurting (physically or emotionally) friend. I guarantee that they will feel better - at least for a minute or two. :) :)

I used a sentiment from Get Well Sentiments and the cute, little skunk from Get Well Critters.
