CDS Product Parade Day 3

Go HERE for the Gel-a-tins Blog Hop

Good Morning and welcome to Day 3 of the Clear Dollar Stamps Product Parade!  As you now know CDS has made all of their new items available for purchase right now!  No more waiting, just throw it in your cart and buy, buy, buy.  I love that there is no waiting. . .if you see something while you're browsing the Product Parade, you just buy it. . .without waiting!

My first card is made with the new set called Seasonal Swags.  There are 8 stamps in this set for only $9.99.  It's such a great set to have, because it perfect for all seasons. . .hence the name, Seasonal Swags, hehe.  I used mine with CDS's new Elegant Accents Die and Oval Dies, because they just worked together so perfectly!
 Stamps:  Seasonal Swags
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Vintage Photo
Paper:  CC Garden Variety, unknown green, buttercream
Copics:  R02, R05, YG03, YG63, YG67, YR20, YR23
Accessories:  CDS Elegant Accents Die, CDS Oval Die, sponge, red ribbon, dimensionals

This next set just makes me smile!  It's called Berry Happy Hedgehog, and it has 3 stamps for only $7.99.  Isn't it adorable?!  The berries made me think of picking blackberries up at Klamath, CA, where my husband's family camps every year.  We go pick blackberries, and they range in color from pink to dark purple. . .mmmm.  I watercolored my little hedgehog with Tombows and an aquabrush.
 Stamps:  Berry Happy Hedgehog
Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
Paper:  CDS Heavy Watercolor, CDS Grape Jelly, CDS Bubble Gum
Tombows:  676, 177, 899, 992, 772, N65, 947, 606
Accessories:  Labels 11 Nestabilities, CDS Tabs & Tags Die, CDS Scalloped Edge Border, CDS Smoke Stack ribbon, green buttons, TE Hearts Impression Plate

The next 3 cards are made with single stamps, that I thought would be perfect for making little note cards for a teacher to give.  They are 'good job', 'makin' the grade', and 'proud of you' stamps.  These were quick and easy to throw together, and you could easily make up a whole bunch for a teacher to have on hand.  And you know. . .school is starting in just a couple of short weeks (ugh!).
 Stamps:  proud of you, makin' the grade, good job
Ink:  Craft White
Paper:  CDS Night Eclipse, unknown blue & green, MME Alphabet Soup
Accessories:  orange buttons, twine, dimensionals, white embossing powder, red ribbon, corner chomper

My next set to show is this adorable My Little School Bus set that has 7 stamps in it for only $5.99.  I just love this set!  You could make a card for your teacher or even the bus driver with this one!  Mine is watercolored and made to look like it's driving down the road.
 Stamps:  My Little School Bus
Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black, Baja Breeze
Paper:  Imaginisce-Apple Cider, Parakeet Green, CDS Cottonball White, CDS Heavy Watercolor, CDS Night Eclipse
Tombows:  249, 847, 26, N25, black, 62
Copic:  BG72 & airbrush
Accessories:  aquabrush, staples, black embossing powder, button, white prismacolor pencil, white gel pen, TE Cloud Duo Die, glossy glaze

My next card is made with this sweet squirrel set called Squirrel Chatter.  It has 7 stamps in the set and is only $7.99.  I decided to make a fall birthday card with him.  The sentiment reads, 'It's your birthday, go a little nuts!'  Isn't that cute?!
 Stamps:  Squirrel Chatter
Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black, CDS Hot Cocoa
Paper:  unknown orange, BG dp, CDS Heavy Watercolor
Tombows:  922, 947, 899, 772
Accessories:  aquabrush, CDS Cream ric rac, dimensionals

My final stamped item is a journal made with a single stamp that says, 'Memories'.  I thought a journal would be extremely fitting, although it would be perfect for albums or scrapbooks as well.
Stamps:  Memories
Ink:  CDS Hot Cocoa
Paper:  parchment, MME Stella Rose
Accessories:  journal, sponge, CDS Tabs & Tags Die, corner rounder, natural button, brown twill ribbon

That is all that I have to show today. . .don't you just want to go shopping now?!  Tomorrow is the final day of the CDS Product Parade, but you can buy everything new right now over at Clear Dollar Stamps!  For more inspiration on these sets I've show you today head over to Lori's blog and check out the rest of the awesome DT's blogs (links in my sidebar) as well.
