Special Bundle - Clear & Simple Stamps Release Day


A bouncing bunch of stamps and dies are arriving today in the Clear & Simple Stamps store.  This collection is full of fun background building sets, versatile dies, and lots of sweet baby related images.

My card uses the stork from Special Bundle.  I adore this set and am so excited to tell you that coordinating dies are also available in the store.  I opted to paper-piece the stork and used foam tape to "pop" his wings.


The gender neutral color scheme is a fresh take on yellow and green, and I really indulged in mixing patterns and prints for the card base.  The Build-a-Flower die is a great accent, and I love that you can choose how to build the layers and therefore also choose the size that works best with your project.


Thank you all for your kind comments and congratulations this week!  Visit the design team's blogs for more inspiration using the new products and then head over to Clear & Simple Stamps to shop.

Glorious! That stork is going to fly off that card for sure. So well done. I really adore the color palette of your card. Love the ochre and teal combined with the gray accents. That plaid DP is also something else. I just love this!

Just beautiful, Denise! You are so right...what a fresh take on the standard yellow and green card. You combined all the patterns together perfectly, as always!

Cathy Weber said...

Oh my goodness, this is spectacular! The release is so gigantic, it will take me all day to look at it all, my boss will probably cut me off the computer! This is the cutest card, I don't have anything like this set, nothing with a stork, so looks like I will be making baby cards very soon. Love the colors you chose to work with, non-traditional and very modern looking feel to it. Great job, Congrats again, you are going to do great!
