CSS May SOTM - Kind Deeds
Wow! I can't believe it's already May 1!! In Hawaii, May 1 is Lei Day, so Happy Lei Day everyone!!
The first of the month means it's time for a new Stamp of the Month release from Clear and Simple Stamps! I'm so excited about the Kind Deeds stamp set - I honestly think this may be my favorite CSS set to date! (use the code CSS0510 to get $1 off during the month of May on this stamp set!!).
And, as always, we have an awesome new template to play with this month - it's a seed packet / envelope template. You can download it HERE. When I started thinking of things I wanted to do with the template, I decided to use it as a little envelope to hold embellishments as part of a simple card-making gift to give to my Grandmother (who is not a stamper) for Mother's Day. My gift sort of evolved and I designed a folder with 2 pockets - 1 to hold some pre-decorated cards and the other to hold the embellishment envelope (seed packet template).
I filled the envelope with buttons and several pre-stamped sentiments. When she needs to send a card, all she has to do is pull out the appropriate sentiment and add it to the card front and she's ready to go. If she's feeling fancy, she could add a button or two as well!
I used several other CSS products on this project in addition to the Kind Deeds stamp set:
- Kraft Like a Rockstar cardstock
- On the Catwalk Cream cardstock
- You're a Natural Darling buttons
Here are a few more photos of the project:
In addition to the SOTM, CSS is featuring a new Copic Trio Bundle and a new Color Story.
The Copic Trio Bundle, Red Trio 4, includes R81, R83, R85.
And finally, the new May Color Story is Paint the Town Pink and includes buttons, cardstock, ribbon and ink.
