World Card Making Day Mini Release at Clear and Simple Stamps

It's World Card Making Day (WCMD) and at Clear and Simple Stamps we are celebrating with a mini-release! What's one crafty tool that has made card making super fun? Coordinating dies, of course. We have received several requests to add coordinating dies for some of our popular, previously released stamp sets, and today we are happy to announce that our new Simple Cuts™ are here. Visit with Clear and Simple Stamps to see more inspiration with the newly released dies in celebration of today's World Card Making Day… Be sure to stay tuned next week for the official Collection 5 Release kicking-off on October 10th! 

Here’s a card I put together to show off the new dies for one of my favorite CSS sets, Across the Miles.  I used the scooter, stamped on the matching die cut, for my focal image. I colored it in shades of blue with gray for the seat and tires.

I made a simple scene for the scooter using some dot embossed Trendsetter Blue cardstock for the sky and some striped washi tape for the road. No sky’s complete without a sun and clouds, so I added a felt cloud die cut with the cloud die from the Spring die set and a little twine-tied button sun. The set’s “riding by to say hi” sentiment is stamped just beneath the washi tape in teal to match the scooter. I matted the panel on a teal panel, then layered it on a white card base. Love how the blue pops against all that white space!

Here are the other CSS designers who are sharing samples using dies from today's release.  Be sure to stop by and check them out!
