CSS May/June Release Day

Today's the day you've been waiting for....release day at Clear and Simple Stamps!

I've got 2 projects to share.  First up is a set of mini notecards:


I die cut a folded piece of cardstock with the largest hexagon die (linked at the end of the post), then used the corresponding outline stamp.  I finished it all off with a sentiment and colorful flowers!

Next is a pincushion I made.  I'm sure you all think I am obsessed with pincushions (proof found here and here).....but I just like that they are quick and easy projects, and they are good to have on hand!  I cut fabrics on the floor- so I like having a set of pins there and another near the sewing machine.



I die cut the hexagons from different colored felt, and hand-sewed them to a circle of felt.  I stuffed it with polyfil, then used a blanket stitch to seal up the edges.  I don't often hand-sew (other than embroidery), so it was kind of fun to try something new!

On these projects I used:
Shapes: Hexagons
All Occasions 1 (flower stamp)
All Occasions 2 (sentiment)
