CPS #5 and Designs (Stamping Feature)

It's that time again!! For CPS #5 we wanted to do something special for all the stampers out there. This week's designs from the CPS designers all feature stamping!! We hope you will enjoy all the ideas this week.

So, here it is...CPS#5. We can't wait to see what you do with it! We'd love to see some of your favorite stamps as well.

"Best Wishes"
Designer Linda Beeson

Designer note:
The Stickles glitter glue was a fun way to give some fairy dust to the angels wings. This CRYSTAL color has irridescent colors that shine various colors when dry. Also, when dry, this kind of glitter isn't the kind that falls off all over.

Designer note: I used white ink to stamp the flourish on the dark pink paper. This created a soft, background image that coordinated with the tag and the flower stamps. Gem Tac adhesive works great on the jewels and really holds them on there!
