Stamp of the Month: Across the Miles



{AUGUST} STAMP OF THE MONTH: Across the Miles





What a great new stamp set that Clear & Simple is releasing this month.  I had fun working with this set, the methods of transportation set is going to be perfect for masculine cards. 

AUGUST COLOR STORY: Trendsetter Blue
Buttons
Paper
Ribbon
Ink
Reinker
I used some Glossy Accents on the balloon as I really wanted to showcase the colors on the balloons after I colored them.  I stamped the background pieces with the Wallflower stamp set and love how it looks against the pumpkin cardstock.  Simple embellishment with the Trendsetter Blue button and the sentiment.  I love this card!!!

Hope you enjoy the card and I'll have a few more to share this month with this great set.  If it's a set you can't live without, you can use the code CSS0810 when you check out ordering the set & the Copic Trio for $1 off.
