Clear Dollar Stamps is Critter Heaven!
Introduc-ing "Wood-land Critters" from Clear Dollar Stamps. With this latest release of adorable animals, Clear Dollar is definitely the place to go for just about any critter image imaginable! From the zoo to the farm to the forest, they've got a creature for every possible occasion (and sentiments to match!).

My sample today is an everyday friendship card, and boy, was this a fun one to make...I got to use a couple of the most playful embellishments in the papercrafter's tool/toy box: Fun Flock and Stickles!!! Here's the whole story:

Stamps: "Woodland Critters" - Clear Dollar Stamps
Inks: Staz-On "Jet Black; Ranger "Tea Dye" Distress
Markers: Copic #s E04, R21, W1, W3, W5, W7, W9 and #BG72 (w/airbrush system)
Cardstock: Bazzill
DP: W R Memory Keepers "Coppered Out" Collection
Dies/Punches: Spellbinders Nestabilities - Labels 3, Large Standard Circles; Sizzix Originals - Leaves; Martha Stewart Border Punch - Embossed ZigZag; EK Success - photo corner punch; micro hole punch
Ribbon: SU Ribbon Originals - "District"
Embellishments: Ranger "Lime Ice" Ice Stickles; SU "Batty Black" Fun Flock; The Robin's Nest "Waterfall" Dew Drops

Here's a close-up of my little raccoon...along with the Fun Flock for fur, notice how I popped up the different "levels" of his face for more dimension.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend...I am looking forward to a quiet week ahead filled with LOTS of stamping (hubby is traveling this week, so it's cereal for dinner for the kids & I...well, maybe for ONE night at least!). So please stop back for more critter sitings!
