Airmail - Collection 6 {Clear & Simple Stamps}

Good Saturday Morning to you!  Today, I am back with the third installment of Collection 6 goodies from Clear and Simple Stamps!  Four new products are available now in the CSS Store.  This group of projects are so much fun to work with!  My project today showcases the new Airmail stamp set and coordinating Notebook Edge die.  


For the tag, I started with a 2.5" x 3.5" piece of white cardstock.  I used the notebook page lines from the Airmail stamp set and the Notebook Edge die to create a notebook page.  Using the Alpha Duo stamp set, I   stamped the words "Paper Plane Kit" and colored in with copics.  Then I stamped the "postage paid" strip and the postal stripes.  Then I stamped the "Airmail/Fragile" stamp on a hand cut banner.  The tiny heart is cut from Dare to be a Diva Red cardstock from the Build-a-Critter Owl/Kitty die set.


To create the contents of the kit, I cut pieces of plain typing paper to a size of 3.5" x 5.5" and stamped each piece with different patterns from the Airmail stamp set, being sure to stamp the same pattern on both sides so that when the paper is folded, you see the pattern on all folds. (Tip: be sure to use lightweight paper so that it folds easily and isn't too heave to fly!)


Once I had everything stamped, I packaged it up in a medium glassine bag and tied with Red/White/Blue Twine.  Using a tiny clothespin, swiped over my ink pad to make it red, I attached the little tag.  Of course, I had to make my own plane... (thank heavens for Google and little boys who can give me paper airplane making tips!)  Not only is it super cute, but it really flies too! *wink*

Be sure to visit these ladies and check out their fun projects using today's newly released Collection 6 products:
