Clearly Cuttin' Up!

It's awesome when a great company comes out with a great new product, isn't it??

Clear Dollar Stamps has done it again!! Today, CDS is releasing their first group of .svg files made to use with ... their STAMPS!! :) How awesome is that?! No cutting around the stamp images to get dimension, anymore. You can cut them on the Cricut (using SCAL), cut a shadow for them, stamp the main layer, put it on the shadow, and build your card. WOWZERS!! How coolllllll!! I think ... no, I KNOW, you're going to love everything we've got for you today. AND ... not only is CDS going to have shapes to use with the stamps, but also other shapes to use to enhance your cardmaking. :)

Oh ... just in case you don't already have SCAL, CDS has got a *great* deal on that, too!!!! Just run on over to Lori's blog and take a peek at all she's got to offer today!

This card is made with the brackets' file that CDS is releasing today. Don't you love that frame around the hippo and frog. The oval is cut using the middle shape of the scalloped shaped files that are being released today, too.

Crystal effects was used for the 'splatter,' along with some Tear Drops to add some dimension. The oval was embossed only on the sides to match the embossing on the black layer.

Card recipe -

Ah ... the .svgs for the stamped images .... I love this beaver ... and the fact that I did NOT have to cut him out by hand! With him cut out and popped up on the front of the card, there's a lot more depth to the card. There is even a separate image that can be cut for the balloon - which I cut, colored, and embellished with Crystal Effects.
