Stamp of the Month Details
We’d love to see what you make with your new Stamp of the Month stamp set. Hashtag your projects with #lovemyCSS so we can find you. For a bit of inspiration to kick things off this month, here’s a peek at a few projects we’ve crafted up inside the studio.
Good Things Stationery
As a crafter, we are always jotting down creative ideas and sketching out projects. We pretty much hoard all sorts of cute notebooks and stationery as much as possible. With this stamp of the month set, we wanted to create a fun gift set that any DIY’er would love to carry with them for those flashes of creativity that they need to jot down.
Take a quick trip to your local office supply store (or add it to your already growing list of items to have shipped from Amazon) and pick up a stack of plain mini notepads. Ours measure 5″ x 3″. We cut GY-03 | Pressed Greige Linen cardstock 10.25″ x 3″ and made two score lines at 5″ and 5.25″. From there we gold embossed the sentiment onto the front of the notebook cover using N-00 | From an Anonymous Source ink – it’s perfect for watermarking and embossing like we did here. Then simply adhere the cover to the cardboard backing of the notepad with Simple Adhesive for a pretty custom cover. These would make great stocking stuffers for teachers, coworkers, or for your crafty friends!
Know anyone that has a ton of hustle and heart? Let them know with an adorable motivational card that you can whip up in minutes. Which is a good thing, because chances are once you make one you will want to make a ton more to keep in your card stash. They are that simple and that fab! It’s not everyday you can compliment someone with a little #hustleandheart.
Gold embossing is our jam! It’s so crisp and pretty, and super easy as long as you have our N-00 | From an Anonymous Source ink, embossing powder and a heat tool. We paired the fun hashtag sentiment and of course a lovely little heart image from the Polka Hearts stamp set.
For an added touch we stamped our A4 Envie Liner with the large Polka Hearts background in P-03 | Coral Necklace ink. We love the subtle color on color look of the hearts for a fun pop of color.
Good things come to those who hustle, and our embossing powders are the true hustlers in the CSS studio! Something about the holidays makes us want to reach for our embossing powders to create shiny raised sentiments and images. We chose a classic color for the holidays with the GR-05 | Kraft Like a Rockstar Green for our sentiment panel.
Green and gold is a pretty color combo, and definitely the star of this card. Once the panel was embossed we paired it with a M-01 | 24 Karat Gold (A4) envelope, and a patterned paper envie liner. We love a simple and sleek card design. You can easily change out the colors to create a fun set to keep in your card stash.
We absolutely adore the holiday season, and have so many wonderful things to be grateful for this year! We truly appreciate each and every customer that looks to Clear and Simple Stamps for inspiration and to fulfill your crafty needs. We strive to continue to bring you innovative and creative ideas and products in the coming year.
