CDS Sneak Peek - Charlie Tweens


WE all love Charlie and want to see how he changes every month. This month, he's ready for back to school and he's a Tween! Hehehe... how much fun! He'll be available August 1st from Clear Dollar Stamps. A lot of great bits to this set including an I-pod, Cell phone and all of the "in" words. Each month, the DT is assigned challenges and my Charlie card uses both our sketch challenge as well as the color challenge (green and brown with a neutral). Isn't he cute?? Oops - boys don't like the word cute. Isn't he handsome?

ALL CDSTAMPS USED: Charlie Tweens
CS AND PAPERS: Gina K Luxury White, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Archaic DP (Basic Grey), Watercolor paper

Charliene is back as well this month! I've combined Charliene with a single stamp (apples and books). I bought the October Afternoon DP at a LSS and it was definitely my starting point for colors. I wanted Charliene to stand out so I kept the layout releatively simple. I've popped up the apples and books using Stamping Dimensionals. The apple has Fruit Punch stickles for a bit of extra bling.

Hi Angela! Hope you're having fun with Kim! Your Sneak Peeks are all wonderful, but I especially love your "Bitty Bots" cards! And for not using DP on the one...it sure turned out cute!
