Clear and Simple Stamps Collection 6 Release and AMAZING NEWS!

Today I get to finally share some super AWESOME news! You may remember that I was asked to guest design for Clear and Simple Stamps during their Collection 5 release back in October.  Well, I am OVER THE MOON EXCITED to tell you that I am joining the gang over at CSS as a full fledged Design Team Member effective RIGHT NOW!  EEEEEEEK!  Can you believe it?  I don't think I have stopped smiling since I accepted the invitation!  Can you tell I am excited!? I am sorry for so many capital letters but I just can't help myself.  I am a happy girl! :)




Now that I have spilled the beans, I have some goodies to share with you!  The Collection 6 release is in full swing, and today, we are sharing part 2 of the release.  Each Saturday in January, more Collection 6 products will be added to the CSS Store, and those products will be showcased on the CSS Blog and the DT Members blogs as well.


My ensemble today features the new Medallions 1 stamp set.  There is a companion set, Medallions 2, as well (I will have a project using that set up soon!).  These sets are filled with beautiful medallion images in various sizes.  Some are solid, and some out outline images, and they work perfectly together which lends to tons of versatility in these sets. 

 For today's project, I used From An Anonymous Source watermarking ink to stamp my medallions and then embossed with white embossing powder.  Using various shades of distress ink and an ink blending tool, I sponged an ombre effect over the medallion image.  The sentiments on each card are from the Cart Pals: Occasions stamp set.

My ensemble:


And closeups of each card... 









Be sure to visit these ladies today to see more of the Medallions sets and other new and exciting products!


You can see all of the already revealed Collection 6 products in the CSS store here.  Be sure to check back next Saturday for even MORE new goodies!  Happy shopping! :)

I also have a project featured on the CSS APP today!  Click the sneak peek below to be taken to the full version!
