CDS Sneak Peeks #5 and #6 "Hot Rods"

Hello again!
I am going to give you 2 peeks at once today...actually 3! They are "39 Coupe", "69 Camaro" and the sentiment set "Cool Ride". They will all be available on September 1st at "Clear Dollar Stamp's" awesome new store!

For the Coupe, I used Bazzill and core'dinations cardstocks and the DP is from K&Company's "Blue Awning" stack

When I was picking out the stamps I wanted to play with this month, the Camaro was a no brainer! This is my son Kurt with the "69" Camaro that he and his daddy restored for his first car. Isn't he handsome? ;) His birthday was this month so this was his birthday card. That worked out perfectly!

For the Camaro, I used Bazzill and core'dinations cardstock and the DP is from K&Company's "Happy Trails" stack.
Both cars have been popped from the page. I used metallic paint on the chrome parts, a white paint marker for the highlights and then glaze.

Make sure and scroll down a bit so you can check out the peeks I posted the last few days!

Check out the 2 bog candy giveaways I have going on right now too! Enter to win some guilt free sweets!
