Clear & Simple Stamps - September 2010 Release

Wednesday, September 1, 2010

Hello!  Today I'm sharing the Clear & Simple Stamps' September SOTM.  This month's set is called Topiaries.  I've always loved topiaries and now I can stamp them on my cards.  You can even mix and match the trees and pots.  So fun!  I especially love the sentiments in this set.  I am a font fanatic and I love sentiments that mix fun fonts with plain type.  

Here's what the September SOTM set "Topiaries" looks like:
Use discount code CSS0910 for $1 off!!!

And here is just one of the cards I've made using this set:
I stamped the fruitful topiary and pot onto Kraft Like a Rockstar card stock using Perfect Little Black Dress ink.  That ink is perfect to use with watercolor pencils since the ink will not bleed or smear.  Then I colored the image with watercolor pencils and went over the image with an aqua-painter.  See that yummy brown with the distressed edges?  That's the new color this month.  It's called Espresso Your Style and it is such a rich color.  I punched two holes on my image panel and threaded my ribbon behind the panel and around the card.  I think this really draws your eye to the focal point.
The new color, Espresso Your Style is available today in card stock, ribbon, ink, re-inkers, and buttons as well as the Copic Trio Bundle (see below).

Thanks so much for sharing in the excitement today!!!  I know you'll love this month's SOTM set.  I'm looking forward to sharing more cards with you using this set.

This is lovely, Dana! The coloring looks so nice against the kraft and I really like how you used ribbon here.
