Caught a Bug?

Happy Sunday! Today I have a preview of the new set by Cookie Crumbs Stamps, called Get Well Critters. The images and sentiments are funny and so cute! This is definitely my favorite critter -- don't you just love those eyes? ;)

The jar and bug were stamped, colored and cut out separately and mounted on dimensionals. I did the same thing with another set of eyes, and I popped them up to add one more layer. Those eyes just make me giggle! I added some Stickles to the wings for a little sparkle, and I machine stitched around the dp. I sponged just the very edge of the embossed oval so it would pop against the dotted paper.

Here's a closeup...

There are more samples of this set on the ATS Blog, so be sure to check 'em out! All of the new sets will be released tomorrow, Monday, June 1 at 10:00 pm Eastern. We'll be chatting on the ATS Forum before the release -- we'd love for you to be there! :)

That's all for today! Tomorrow I'll have my first MFTeaser for you -- I hope you'll stop back! Thanks so much for visiting!

Have a wonderful day! :)
