Hi everyone! Kim here today!
Welcome to our Perfect Pair Hop with some great stamps from Clear & Simple Stamps & fabulous die cuts from Creative Cuts & More!!
This should be a really fun hop to follow because not only will you find ideas from the Die Cut Diva team, but the Clear & Simple Stamps DT (CSS) is using the same stamp sets & dies! Each team member was given a different stamp set & then we were paired with the CSS DT using that same set! Should be fun to compare the 2 ways each set was used! The challenge was to use the stamp set & dies assigned to us to create 3 projects with one of those projects submitted to CSS for their iPhone App (HERE).
And what would a hop be without some CANDY???
There will be 2, yes TWO! prizes (from CC&M and CSS) given away to 2 (TWO!!) lucky readers EACH day!! So be sure to leave a comment as you hop along to all these wonderful sites over the next TWO days!!
So, settle on in & hop along with us. Hopefully you started at the beginning & hopped along to Regina's post over at CSS (Those were some great ideas from her!!) to get here. If not, you really don't want to miss what all these designers have done for you today! So start HERE & work you way back to me!
Ok, so I had this fun little "Popcorn Extras" stamp set from Clear & Simple Stamps:
This was fun set to work with, especially since I am a huge popcorn fan!! (Movie popcorn is the BEST!!) Here are the dies I had to work with:
|Sliding Pop-up Card|
|Pop-up Card (Exclusive to CC&M)|
I used the last on for my iPhone App submission (click HERE to learn more) & we were asked to publish that project ONLY on the CSS App site. It's a really fun card to work with - you can pop just about anything on those 2 little bars inside the card!
Here, I used the popcorn box die in Real Red to make a little table decoration that would be super fun to have out during an Oscar party, don't ya think!!
|Movie projector (available soon on CC&M), stamped w/popcorn in white ink|
|Film Strip die with stamped, cut-out, popped & glittered popcorn|
|Here, I stamped more popcorn & popped them on a vintage label|
|Another of these fun stamps went onto the sides of the box.|
Next, I used the Sliding Pop-Up Card in Real Red to make this fun thank you card with some of the phrases from the stamp set:
|Sliding pop-up card, vintage label & bling all from CC&M; I used the popcorn stamps as a border around the card too|
It's really a clever card - once you put the card together with Killer Red Tacky Tape (CC&M has THE best prices on this tape!!), you simply pull on the ribbon at the top to reveal the sentiment inside! Isn't it fun!!
You just have to be certain that the inside of the card isn't chunky. That's why these stamps work so perfectly together with the card!!
That's it for me today!
I sure hope you liked my ideas & don't forget to leave me a comment so you'll have a chance to win some Blog Candy from CC&M AND CSS today!
Now it's time to hop on over to Chris' blog for some more fun!
