Flowers for You


Hi friends!  Please excuse my brief absence... I've been under the weather. Unfortunately, when the healthy mojo is lacking so is the crafty mojo.  ;)  Good news: The Clear & Simple Stamps girls are in full swing for the new Collection 3 release and previews are happening every day this week.  The release is on Saturday, May 5th.  SO many fabulous new things... and I'm giving you a peek at several of them via today's card for the new Play Date Cafe Challenge.

Our soft and lovely color palette in the Cafe:
Salmon, Dolphin Gray, & Sea Glass


My main panel uses the new Flowers stamp set from Clear & Simple Stamps.  It is a whimsical floral building set with tons of possibilities.  It pairs perfectly with the Flower Garden background set which is also part of Collection 3.  The new Edger 1 dies add a perfect touch of elegance.  Stop by the CSS Blog to get more details on the upcoming release and to see more previews.

I hope you'll join me this week in the Cafe for some crafty inspiration... can't wait to see what you create!

Stamps: CSS Flowers & Flower Garden background (available May 5th)
Paper: PTI Melon Berry & Aqua Mist; CSS Kraft Like a Rockstar (original & cream)
Ink: A-Muse Studio Seattle (grey); PTI Melon Berry

This card is the reason I had to have all of those CSS stamps and die. Thanks for the push in the right direction! :)
