Clear and Simple Stamps | Peanuts Inspired Stationery

CSS-PeanutsStationery(main)The gang is all here and ready to celebrate the weekend watching the new Peanuts Movie! To say we were pretty excited when we found out about this movie doesn’t quite do it justice. We were prepared to be first in line with our popcorn and snacks in tow for the adventures of Charlie Brown and company to entertain us all day long.

In prep for a super fun movie outing, we thought it would be awesome to create mini Peanuts Movie inspired note cards – including one for Charlie Brown’s sweetheart the little red-haired girl! Love that we get to see her in real life.

Clear and Simple Stamps | Peanuts Inspired StationeryWe did mention that we are serious about our love for the Peanuts comic strip, didn’t we?!

Whenever we think mini note cards, we immediately grab our A3 Stationery Dies. They create the perfect 3″ square card and envelope set. For these Peanuts Movie inspired notes we simply used the envelope and the liner dies.

Print these cute liners out with a laser printer and foil them for a bit of added shimmer. We even love the left over negative from foiling – you could certainly use both as adorable envelope liners for the character note cards.

Clear and Simple Stamps | Peanuts Inspired Stationery with Gold Foiled LinersNow that we have the envies all prepped and ready, let’s assemble the gang. And we’ll warn you now – this Peanuts inspired stationery set is ridiculously cute! Each Peanuts character has such a distinct style that we had the best time mixing and matching stamps and dies to recreate each look on the mini notes.

Clear and Simple Stamps | Peanuts Inspired StationeryThere are several tips and tricks to creating each character note card and we’ll take you through each one. What we love most about these abstract note cards (besides the mega cute factor) is that they come together so easily, and make a great gift set for any Peanuts lover!

Clear and Simple Stamps | Peanuts Inspired Stationery - tips and tricksHow lovable are each of these adorable character cards?! The new Peanuts movie is super cute, and has certainly inspired a handful of creative projects and parties you just may see pop up on the blog in the future (wink, wink)!

Clear and Simple Stamps | Tasty Treat Tags #nationalicecreammonth

Clear and Simple Stamps | Tasty Treat Tags #nationalicecreammonthWhat happens when you cross a relaxing Sunday afternoon with National Ice Cream Day…a Sundae Funday!

That’s right, we enjoyed a day of creating in the craft room over the weekend. And we whipped up a super cute ice cream inspired project to celebrate a sweet moment – National Ice Cream month. With this no calorie option, we absolutely love that stamping and coloring our favorite flavors won’t require an extra trip to the gym this week!

Clear and Simple Stamps | Tasty Treat Tags #nationalicecreammonth - craft your flavor with the Foodie Fun stamp setBesides, creating sets of tags is pretty much a ritual around here. There is always a reason to dress up a gift bag or add a nice touch to wrapped gifts without taking up too much time and still making the recipient feel extra special.
Clear and Simple Stamps | Tasty Treat Tags #nationalicecreammonth - craft your flavor with the Foodie Fun stamp setSo in honor of a papercrafting diet that allows us to create any and every treat possible without gaining a pound, we are reaching for the Foodie Fun stamp set, Tags 1 Combo, and a few other supplies to create a sweet set of tags.

With a mix of warm, summery colors each tag comes to life with an assortment of fun messages – it means a lot when you love someone more than ice cream, right?!
Clear and Simple Stamps | Tasty Treat Tags #nationalicecreammonth - craft your flavor with the Foodie Fun stamp setEach tag starts with the same Foodie Fun ice cream cone image, and with a bit of creative coloring we’re serving up a medley of flavors.

That’s really the best part about ice cream – there are so many yummy choices. We had fun recreating our favorites on paper and adding them to our stash of tags. Visit us on Instagram and tell us your favorite flavors…

Clear and Simple Stamps: Valentine's Day Cupcake Kit

Clear and Simple Stamps: Valentine's Day Cupcake Kit

We love bite-sized anything! Make it miniature and we are completely smitten. This absolutely applies to cupcakes. The smaller, the cuter and the more fun to customize!

And by customize, we mean curate a pretty fab Valentine’s Day Cupcake Kit in a box. We love that the kits label is tied to our festive Pink Sweet Heart Balloon and its own Balloon Stick and Cup for stability.

Clear and Simple Stamps: Valentine's Day Cupcake Kit

We rounded up a few color coordinated essentials that would make a very special treat on Valentine’s Day. The mix of Make Mine Mint, I’m a Princess Pink, A Blanc Check, and Kraft Like a Rockstar colors create a soft a pretty feel for this sweet gift set.

Clear and Simple Stamps: Valentine's Day Cupcake Kit

We neatly placed the items for this Cupcake Kit inside one of our new Kraft Storage Boxes to complete our packaging. To say we love these boxes would be a complete understatement! They hold quite a bit and make a beautifully gifted package.
