whimsically framed {CSS new release}

it's great to have you.

It's day 4 of the Clear and Simple Stamps new releases!  Today, we're introducing tags, labels, ovals, new background stamps, and my favorite of the bunch: the curly label frames 1 stamp set.  I already used it *here* but you will see it pop up too many times in the next little while.  I absolutely love it.

it's great to have you.


A handmade doll and his matching card - hilarious, non?  (the bow-tie is making me switch to french, and give it a snooty accent to go along with...)


it's great to have you.

I stamped the gingham background with just one image from our large create a plaid stamp set.  I then stamped the new curly label in black on top of the gingham, and then again onto a piece of white cardstock.  Once the rag doll was stamped and colored, I fussy cut the oval and pieced it onto the gingham mat.

it's great to have you.

Lookit his matching bow-tie.  hee hee.  And, the sentiment is from an upcoming new set!

it's great to have you.


You already saw the little lady I sewed for Maia's tea party, and you'll find out more about these handmade rag dolls from CSS on the weekend, but for now...

it's great to have you.


He's not perfect.  I know it.  I am such an amateur with my sewing machine... but he sure is sweet.

it's great to have you.
