It's that time again! The debuts of next months new release designs with Clear Dollar Stamps. You won't want to miss all the stamps that are coming out in February. They are all so cool! So much so that I had the hardest time picking my sample sets. I definitely was not disappointed with the designs that I had to work with.

Today's cards were made with the "Zoo Critters" set. This collection has a variety of animals that you would find at the zoo and has coordinating clever sentiments to go with it.

I chose the walrus and the toucan to ink up first. Both zoo critters were fun to play with! The only challenge I had was recalling what colors that toucans are. Instead of doing my lovely bird right on I went ahead and did "Basic Grey" style. :-) Basically I chose colors that matched up with the BG background papers. It worked really well.
