CSS Release Week 4

Today is the last day of the product reveals for Clear and Simple Stamps' Collection 6 release.  It's been a fun ride!  I especially love the new alpha set, Alpha Shadow.  I used it to create a cute gift set:

The card says "for you," which I know implies that I'm giving this to someone.  But nope- I'm Jenny, so I'm keeping it for myself! (did you know that in high school I went by "Jenny?"  My close friends still call me that, even though now I just go by "Jen")



I tried out a faux letterpress technique by inkin up a woodgrain imprint plate- it definitely looks cooler in real life than in the photo.


To make the mug, I stamped each letter individually with Staz-on ink.  Does anyone have any experience with using it on porcelain? The ink dried easily, but I can still scrape it off.  I think I'm going to throw it in the oven in an attempt to heat-set it, but if that doesn't work I'll just use it on my desk for pens/pencils instead of for drinking.  Either way it's cute!  The curve of the mug was difficult to stamp on, so I intentionally stamped the letters in an arc. If I attempted a straight line, any slight misalignment would be painstakingly obvious!
