Clear and Simple Stamps | Sweet as Pie Stationery

Sweetest Day is the perfect excuse to indulge in all things sweet! For us, that translated into papercrafting sweet treats over the weekend by way of adorable pie themed stationery to celebrate the occasion. We’ve mentioned a time or two before that we celebrate all holidays big or small, especially the foodie ones – so Sweetest Day was the perfect excuse to get in the studio and create a little something cute! Who doesn’t love a good flaky crust filled with sweet fruit and served á la mode with a scoop of old fashioned vanilla ice cream? To save ourselves from the serious calories associated with eating pie for breakfast, lunch, and dinner we opted for a cute, calorie-free version of stamped stationery.

Clear and Simple Stamps | Rag Doll: Tea Party Extras Stamp Set

Enter the Rag Doll: Tea Party Extras stamp set! We love all the images and sentiments that come in every Rag Doll stamp set. It makes them so versatile and easy to mix and match with other stamp sets. Here we chose the adorable mini pie images to create with for our sweet stationery set.

We certainly kept things simple with this fun pair of cards. We easily created a custom sentiment with a fun play on words that was a perfect fit for this project. We used a mix of the Alpha Thin dies and a stamped sentiment from the Party Elements: BBQ stamp set. While we choose “sweet as pie” you could very simply change around the sayings to make it work for a variety of foodie inspired occasions!

Hip hip hooray for a little Rosé! That’s been our mantra around here all summer long, and we have to admit we really love a good Rosé.

Clear and Simple Stamps | Ombre Vibes - Good Vibes Only - Stamp of the Month

Have you earned your free stamp of the month “Good Vibes Only” yet? You only have a few days left to place an order and receive the July Stamp of the Month freebie set.

Clear and Simple Stamps | Good Vibes Only - Stamp of the Month

Gather up a few of your favorite CSS Hybrid Ink pads in a similar color family, so that you can create a pretty gradient of ombré color. We started by inking the stamp in the lightest of the three ink colors. Next we lightly dabbed the middle shade of ink on the bottom 2/3rds of the stamp, and finally inking the bottom in the darkest ink color. Read more
