Sew Happy For You! New Stamp of the Month

*if you are looking for my blogger's challenge card, please scroll down*


Are you ready for a new month?  Can you believe this year is flying by so darn fast?

Today marks the Stamp of Month release from Clear & Simple Stamps and I'm featuring the On The Mend II set which coordinates with the On the Mend. While I pondered what to do with this set, once I got stamping, I couldn't seem to put it down and can't wait to share what I've created with you throughout the month.  And how cool that there are {Simple Cuts}On the Mend Die Cuts to coordinate with this set?




Of course I had to pick my most favorite card to feature today.  I stamped the little flowers on the patterned paper to add a little more dimension to it.  I had to add some sewing to my card and I'm in love with coloring seam binding with my Copic markers to match whatever I like.  I also colored some twill ribbon to match.

Hope you will check out the design team and see what adorable creations they have with this new set...you will NOT be disappointed!  And stop over at our new CSS Daily App designer's blog and welcome her.  Amber Daigre is officially part of the team now and we can't wait to see her creations.

This is great! Love that you sewed on your card. My sewing machine is out all the time and I rarely use it on cards. Usually when I think to do it, I'm so far along I'm afraid it would ruin the card if the machine messed up. Definitely need to use it more for cards. Wonderful job!
