Sneak Peek - Clear and Simple Stamps
The big news here in Western PA these days is that Steelers Training Camp is in full swing...so that means Fall, football season, and back-to-school are right around the corner. But that doesn't mean it's too late for baseball (in fact, most areas have "Fall Ball" for those kids not wanting to take part in all that Mom-scaring tackle business!). So to celebrate baseball, here's card I made using a soon-to-be-released set from Clear and Simple Stamps called, quite simply, "Baseball"! We all know there are tons of sports-related stamps out there, but I just LOVE the clean yet retro feel of this one! You'll be able to purchase this set come August 15th over at the CSS website, so start thinking about all the sports fans in your life you want to celebrate with a card or a scrapbook page! Here are the details on my card:

Stamps: "Baseball" - Clear and Simple Stamps
Inks: Staz-On "Jet Black"; SU "Bravo Burgundy" & "Brocade Blue"; Ranger "Black Soot" Distress
Cardstock: SU "Bravo Burgundy"
DP: SEI "Grandpa's Attic" (yeah I know...I'm going waaaay back!)
Dies/Punches/Embossing: Nestabilities Large Petite Ovals; Cuttlebug "Argyle" embossing folder
Accessories/Embellishments: Making Memories brads & oval frame
Misc. Tools/Supplies: Paper piercer; foam adhesive

I've got two more "Baseball" cards to post over the next few days...hope you'll stay tuned!
