Clear and Simple Stamps | Hello Fall Stationery

Clear and Simple Stamps | Hello Fall Stationery It’s officially the first day of Fall! We have to admit, we’ve been celebrating Fall for a few weeks now. Let’s just say when Pumpkin Spice Lattes hit the scene, that was our cue to break out the autumn decor and start piping wafts of cinnamon through the office.

We loved this collage stationery project from the recent Pumpkin Spice Latte Issue (which you can view here) so much, that we’re sharing a fun how-to for creating this adorable note card.  We grabbed a stack of stamps, a handful of markers, a few CSS Hybrid ink pads, a mix of writing pens and got to work.

Clear and Simple Stamps | Hello Fall Stationery Supplies available at www.clearandsimplestamps.comThe steps are very simple, and you can have fun creating collages for all sorts of favorites using your stash of CSS stamps. What might take the longest is placing each image. We recommend placing your dry stamps onto your card base and move them around until you find a layout that you like to mimic on your card front.Clear and Simple Stamps | Hello Fall Stationery - how to

  1. Stamp your images in Perfect Little Black Dress ink onto an A Blanc Check cardstock panel.
  2. Stamp leafy images from Build-a-Wreath: Fall to fill in open gaps.
  3. Hand write descriptions for each image using a multiliner pen.
  4. Color images with markers, and adhere to card base.
  5. Add highlights to images with a white gel pen.

We’re super excited for Fall to finally arrive, and can’t wait to share more of our #CSSFallFaves with you…

Sending big Thanksgiving wishes out today! We are spending the day with family, and huddled around to cheer on our favorite football teams. With it being one of the biggest football days of the year, it is only right to celebrate with a bit of football + turkey – it’s what’s on the menu…

Football + Turkey

____________________________________________________________________

If you are at all wondering who all we are routing for…#CowboyNation and come Saturday around noon eastern time #theBuckeyes!

It’s no secret where our loyalties lie when it comes to game day. But since we have a few non-fans coming over to join us for turkey dinner, we thought it would only be fair to prepare team neutral invites for the big day. A classic wheat style laurel wreath, paired with cotton twine and faux leather are a great combo for this fun invitation.

We are thankful that you stopped by to visit with us today. We hope that you are enjoying a wonderful day with family and friends.

Due to the holiday, please note that we will be open to take orders, however shipping will resume on Tuesday, December 2, 2013.  We strongly believe in taking the time for our entire staff to enjoy the holiday.

We appreciate you and thank you for choosing to shop with Clear and Simple Stamps. Have a very blessed Thanksgiving!
