CDS Product Parade January Stamps are here

Hello!   Wow, it has been a long time since I got to play with my stamps!  It was so much fun to get to sit and create last week.   
I am excited to share with you the first project I made with the Toucans of Love stamps. Cute little girl and boy toucans... you can stamp them together or individually.
There are several single sentiment stamps available that can be used with them, but sold separately too.
I stamped the toucan on watercolor paper and watercolored using the Tombow markers and a waterbrush.
I sewed the toucan panel and added the punched border to the base and sewed around that too.
I will have something to show you with the newest clear stamps for the next 3 days, so I hope you'll come back to see!   Hope you have a crafty weekend!

Happy to hear that you have found some time for you, my friend! Your card is just beautiful! I love that stamp, and you've colored it, and layered it so vividly! The border, button, and baker's twine are the perfect finishing touches! (Along with the wee touch of bling!) Hugs...

Such a wonderful card! I sure wish I could figure out how to sew in a circle like that!!! Beautifully done. I love the added effect of the baker's twine, too.
