Collection 5: The Recap

Collection 5 is now available! We hope you enjoy the collection and all the exciting new products that make up each series within the collection. We thought it would be fun (and helpful) to put the entire release together in one place. So prepare yourself for lots of eye candy, as we take a look back and recap all of Collection 5

 THE BASICS

We are started out with the Basics.  These are those tried and true stamping staples that you think back and wonder “How did I ever manage without them?” – you know like a scoring tool, a paper trimmer, or those fundamental shapes and labels that add a little something extra to your special projects.

Clouds

____________________________________________________________________

In case you missed this amazing announcement….we are delighted to share this next series with you, as the concept came from our very own design team member Laurie Willison:

“I am so excited that my little fun foam clouds have become real stamps and dies!  This is such an exciting day!  These foam stamps have been attached to acrylic blocks and sitting right on my craft table for several years now.  To see them become stamps has been so much fun!  I have to thank the team at Clear and Simple Stamps, with a special thanks to Stephany, Nicki for taking my designs, and making them a reality!  They have added in a couple more fun cloud shapes, a cloud border and an awesome set of dies!”

That’s right, you can now add a fun series of clouds to your stamping stash! From dies, to coordinating stamps, filler stamps, sentiments and an impression plate. This series provides a little bit of cloud happy for everyone.
