Ok, the gloves are off! Nicki from Clear and Simple Stamps issued some of the design team a challenge a few weeks ago. We're having a Sparkle-thon!
Each designer is to use the Spread the Love image any way we'd like to create a project. And our added twist was to include glitter.
I'm paired against the amazing Kim Duran- all I can say is that I don't expect to make it past the first round!
I created a fun little gift set. This is the card that goes along with the gift.
I'm in love with ombre everything lately, so I couldn't resist using some of my favourite CSS pinks for ombre stripes. And for a little fun, I mixed it up and added glitter to the top and bottom stripe.
It was so easy to add the glitter. I just cut a strip of 1/4" Simple Adhesive, laid it across my card base, sprinkled on the glitter, then brushed off with a tiny paint brush. [This is actually the least messy way I've found to work with glitter!]
I'm sorry it's been so quiet here on the blog this past week or so. I've had a lot of things going on at work and in my personal life that have left no time for crafting or even snapping photos of my garden to share with you!
You know how much I adore making quilt cards, and I couldn't resist with these fun papers. I think I tend to stick with more subdued colors in my quilts, but this time I went for bright, fun, summer colors. Love how this turned out!
I added a journal card stamped with a sentiment, lots of fun ribbon, and a little pin to finish everything off.
It’s been three years since the Clear and Simple Stamps Daily app first made an appearance on the crafting scene. Each day the app features a brand new project complete with instructions and photos. You can save to your favorites for quick reference, and search through previous months for even more inspiration.
In celebration of the CSS Daily App, we have 25 Days of inspiration. That’s right- we're bringing the App to the blog! Each day the design team will feature fun projects and for an added bonus we will have a coordinating project on the app – it’s a great way to see even more fab inspiration using your Clear and Simple Stamps.
With Mother's Day, graduation, summer parties, and so many wonderful events coming up- what better way to say thank you or I love you then with a little gift?
I love to give nature-inspired gifts, especially plants instead of flowers that can be planted in the recipients' garden and enjoyed year after year. They're simple & easy to dress up, too- just make a little tag, tuck the plant into a bucket or pot, and attach the tag with some ribbon.
You can give the plant just like this. But I also made a coordinating card to go along with it, so I can write a sweet little note inside.
