Clear & Simple Stamps: August 2011 Release

Monday, August 1, 2011

Can you believe it's August all ready?  School will be starting in  just a few weeks for my kiddos.  Since it's the first of the month, you know what that means, a brand new set from Clear & Simple Stamps!!!  This set is called House Notes II (it coordinates with House Notes) and is my current obsession.  I am addicted to paper piecing that couch.  
This is the first card I made with House Notes II.  I chose patterned paper for the couch that actually looks like a design you would find on a couch.  I think that's my favorite part.  Before I paper pieced the couch, I stamped the image on kraft and outlined it with a gray copic marker.  It's hard to see but it really makes the image pop off the page.  With the sentiment "your couch awaits," I think this would be a great retirement card.
For the text strip on the side, I took one of the sentiment stamps and stamped it repeatedly moving it around a bit.  
Make sure you check out the Clear & Simple Stamps Blog to see all the Design Team creations.  They never disappoint.

Thanks so much for dropping by!  Have a fantastic day!!!

Lovely! This would be a perfect retirement card and I love how you paper pieced the couch--it looks like you could sit on it.

Ooooh! I love that you used that text on the side. I couldn't figure out what the heck to do with it! Well done, sister, well done:-)
