Paper: CSS Release in Review: By the Glass

August 5, 2012

It’s been a month since Clear and Simple Stamps unveiled Collection 4.  Now, it’s time for us to revisit all of the fabulous product from the release and share even more inspiration for using the newest members of the CSS family.
Today, several members of the design team are showcasing the By The Glass portion of Collection 4, which includes several snazzy stamp sets along with the Bottle Tag die, which I think is so darn great!
For my Release in Review contribution, I created an upcycled ensemble using an empty soda bottle!
Izze’s sodas are the only non-water beverage I’ll buy – I’ve somehow convinced myself that it’s health food since it comes in a really cute bottle and is available in only the fanciest of flavors (e.g. Pomogranate).
After downing a bottle of Izze’s, I was left with the empty container which begged to be used in a crafty project!  I immediately thought of my By the Glass Too stamp set, which features a bottle just like Izze’s!

I stamped the bottles in an overlapping pattern, then used some images from Flower Buds to add a bit of color!

To dress up the bottle, which I stripped of any logos – I reached for the CSS bottle tag die and created a coordinating floral tag.

I stamped the inside of the tag with more images from Floral Buds, then used the Favor Flags Dies and Favor Flags Fillers stamp set to create a floral pattern.

Though I left it empty for these photos, this bottle tag is perfect for holding a gift card or perhaps a small baggie of candies!

And of course, I had to fill the bottle with some beautiful fresh flowers to match the card! I chose ranunculus flowers – because they are my fave!!
Thanks for stopping by today – be sure to take a look at the other projects from the CSS design team!
