welcome to another day of Clear and Simple Stamps inspiration!
Awhile back, CSS hosted a "spread the love campaign" and today, I'm using the Limited Edition: Spread the Love stamp set (not for sale) that was a bonus set for those who purchased from their swag bag gift. The stamp says "thanks for the love" with a little jar attached to it.
The only problem: I wanted to use the jar.... by itself. It's just so cute!
So true story: a little stamp surgery never hurt anyone. By cutting the jar away from the sentiment, I suddenly had many more options for my card design. Do you do that with your stamps? I'm pretty sure most of my "happy birthday" sentiments are cut in half - I like side-by-side as well as stackable stamping options, hee.
To create my patterned paper, I stamped the jar repeatedly into rows, and then stamped the distressed linen background over-top. Just for fun, I colored in one jar's heart and glittered it up with diamond stickles.
I gave the sentiment flag a bit of a wave by placing a foam square under the "t" for "thanks" and a glue dot at the other end. I think it's a fun way to make sure that the banner keeps the shape that I want it to have.
I hope you like it! If you'd like to see a different take on the same card, download the CSS app today!
