Living Room: Song of Summer

Bedroom: Zen

Craftroom: Fresh Praline

Those are our paint colors. I need paint on my walls like I need 5 more minutes of sleep every morning. Without it, I’m in a bad mood. I’m a color lover and  it shows in my house, on my blog and in my excitement for the release of a brand new color collection from Clear & Simple Stamps!

How To Holiday: Giftwrap into Giftbags


Clear and Simple Stamps has made the choice to “go green” and revitalize the CSS current color line. You will see a few new colors and some vintage colors no longer being offered, in an effort to provide product made from renewable contents. All of the color coordinated products are made in the USA. The paper comes from mills that practice responsible, sustainable forestry while manufacturing the highest quality paper products on the market. These mills are powered by renewable energy sources, and our paper products are made of 100% recycled content with 30% PCW (post-consumer waste). We are very pleased to announce our commitment to incorporate environmental practices into our daily crafting.

The new collection includes coordinating ink,  envelopes, ribbon, cardstock and giftwrap! YESSIR – you heard me – gift wrap! And what do we do with gift wrap? Well, I don’t know about you , but I use it to make  gift bags. Gift wrap as gift wrap is so last season.

  1. So does that mean some of the rinkers that are not on the css web page r not coming back. Some of the colors you posted from yesterday do not have refills??
    Again Thanks

    1. Hey Beth!
      Hmmm….so, according to the Color Collection Matrix, each of the colors I used in yesterday’s post should have a reinker available! I am going to check on this and let you know!

    2. Beth – I spoke with the CSS team and they are working hard to get the site up with all the appropriate links. Ink refills will be available in all the colors I used in yesterday’s post! YAY!
