CDS Product Parade Day 1

Go HERE for the Gel-a-tins Blog Hop

Welcome to Day 1 of the Clear Dollar Stamps Product Parade!  I don't know about you, but I am sure loving the idea of everything being available right now so that as soon as you see it as a sample you can buy it if you want over at the Clear Dollar Stamps store!  It's genius!

Today is all about the new die set that CDS has available!  It's called the Elegant Accents Dies, and it has lots of sets to compliment it.  The first set to go along with the dies is just amazing, and is called Elegant Accents (pretty easy to remember they go together)!  There are 18 stamps in this set, and it's good for just about everything and also works PERFECTLY with the Oval Dies that CDS has.  They just go hand-in-hand!
Stamps:  Elegant Accents
Ink:  CDS Hot Cocoa
Paper:  buttercream, MME Mabel
Accessories:  Elegant Accents Dies, CDS Oval Dies, MME Mabel trim, sponge, dimensionals, corner chomper

This next stamp is called Birthday Blessings Oval.  You can see how beautifully it goes with the dies.  I made this fun box to house some yummy jelly beans.  Mmmm, that would be a birthday blessing, haha.
 Stamps:  Birthday Blessings Oval
Ink:  CDS Wild Ginger
Paper:  unknown blue, EP dp, CDS Cottonball White
Accessories:  Elegant Accents Dies, CDS Oval Dies, Scor-pal, window punch

This stamp is like the last, but it's perfect for any occasion for any friend, and it's called Your Friendship Oval.  I decided to make a little bouquet of flowers using some Flower Soft and wire.  I think it like pretty in the middle of that sweet oval sentiment.  
Stamps:  Your Friendship Oval

The next set shows off and works so well with the Tag Frame in the Elegant Accents Dies, and the set is called Elegant Accents Tag Frames (set of 4).  The accents in the set are perfect and really are a must for the dies.

My final card of the day is using another 'must have' set for the Elegant Accents Dies.  It's called Elegant Accents Ovals (set of 5).  This is another set that just goes hand-in-hand with the CDS Oval Dies as well.
