CDS Sneak Peek - Measure of a Man

It's that time again... It's Clear Dollar Stamps Sneak Peek time for the September 1st Release. It feels like I've been gone forever from Clear Dollar Stamps but I'm now back after a 2 month DT vacation. Oh how I've missed my CDS. This month there are a ton of great sets and one of my favorites is Kim Teasdale's new set called Measure of a Man. It has a great sense of humor and sass that any man would appreciate!!! I know for myself that I find I struggle with masculine cards and have very few masculine sets so I had to have this set. 


For my first card, I knew I wanted to use the TV from the set because I just had to use the sentiment.  It's just so cheeky.  I've watercolored the image with my Tombow Markers as usual.  Each layer of the Oliver Basic Grey DP has been dry embossed with my Cuttlebug Embossing Folders for a bit of texture.  Of course with it being a masculine card, I tried staying away from ribbon (I gotta tell you it was hard considering almost all of my cards have ribbon on them). 



For my second card, I decided I wanted to go with a more CAS look to make the remotes stand out. I've stamped them with Basic Black ink.  Check it out... I went with ribbon for this card... exactly what I had been trying to avoid!. 

Make sure you check out what the ladies from the team have for you today for eye candy (see sidebar for links)

These are awesome, Angela! Great papers on the first, and I love the CAS of the second. This set is just so perfect for so many of the men in my life, hehe. Kim nailed this one ;D

Love both cards Angela... the simplicity of the one and the pizazz of the other. Great job.
