Happy July!
And what better way to start off a new month than with a brand new release from Clear and Simple Stamps, the oh-so-bright & summery July Stamp-of-the-Month set called, appropriately enough, "Summer". You can see it right here. And more good news...

For the month of July, you can enjoy a $1 off this set by using discount code: DTBlog709. In addition, there is the SOTM Copic Bundle for $26. Enjoy this discounted bundle when you purchase the Copic Trio Yellow-1 and "Summer" during the entire month of July. But wait, there's even more good news...

Along with having a Stamp-of-the-Month set to look forward to every month, Clear and Simple Stamps will be offering a custom template to coordinate with the SOTM...for FREE! This month's template, "Summer Treat Pack" is available to download here (be sure to scroll down, as the template itself is on Page 2 of the document).

And it's the Summer Treat Pack template I'm demonstrating here, with my "Happy Belated Birthday" candle pack (I know I just posted an altered tin filled with candles, but they turned out to be the perfect filler for this little number, too!). Now here's a complete listing of materials:

Stamps: "Make a Wish" - Clear and Simple Stamps
Papers: A Muse "Kitchen Blue" & "Kitchen Brown"; Basic Grey "Archaic" collection (the cup part of the cupcake)
Inks: Staz-On "Timber Brown; Ranger "Antique Linen" Distress
Color Medium: SU watercolor crayons
Templates/Dies/Punches: "Summer Treat Pack" template - Clear and Simple Stamps; Nestabilities Classic Scalloped Squares & Classic Scalloped Rectangles; McGill scallop corner rounder punch; Fiskars oval punch
Accessories/Embellishments: SU felt flowers; Kaiser self-adhesive pearls; misc. lace trims; Making Memories paper distresser tool

Here's a shot of the back:

Please be sure to check out my fellow CSS dt members' blogs to see their super-creative inter-pretations of this fun template! And guess what? You can play along with us and maybe even win a prize! Download the template, make your own "Summer Treat Pack" creations and leave a comment over at the Clear and Simple Stamps blog, along with a link to a picture of your project. You could win a $15.00 gift certificate to the CSS webstore on their July 15th release day!!!

Thanks for checking in with me...come back soon for some fun CSS sneak peaks leading up to that big release day!
