Clear & Simple Stamps - Collection 5 Recap

Hey there!!  Happy Tuesday!  I am still hanging out with the Clear and Simple Stamps Design Team and today we are recapping the Collection 5 release.  Let me tell you, if you haven't checked it out, you NEED to!  There are so many fun new products and I love them all (I may or may not have placed 2 orders already and have a 3rd one brewing... *wink*)

With all of the new goodies, it is so hard to pick a favorite, but for me, it's definately the new Ragdoll sets.  There is everything from a fall/winter wardrobe, to pirates, to super heroes!  For my card today, I used the Ragolls Scene 1 and Coats 1 again.  I did a fun technique called the blackboard technique where you stamp your images in white ink onto black cardstock and then color them in with colored pencils.  It really does look like chalk on a chalkboard in real life! So fun!  The sentiment is a combination of stamps from Ragdoll Jake Cool, and Ragdoll Emma Happy and the chalkboard frame is the woodgrain stamp from Background Basics 1.

Now that I have shared my favorites with you, hop around to all of the other designer's blogs to check out their favorite bits and pieces from this awesome release (and then go shopping)! :)

And when you stop by the CSS Blog, be sure to wish Nicki a Happy Birthday!  :)

Happy Birthday Nicki!  I hope you have a super special day filled with lots of presents, cake and all of the wonderful things you deserve! :)
