Welcome back for day 2 of the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps new release!
Today the team is showing off two new stamp sets and a fun die that coordinates with either, OR works fabulously on its own.
First up is Whole Shebang which I just LOVE. The BIG HB2U is so fun and modern all the matching sentiments suit perfectly. It's a great birthday set for any/all ages.
I watercoloured a background and once dry, heat embossed the HB2U and stamped the sentiment underneath in grey. I added a few splatters of the same grey ink on the corners and a few sparkly stars that were die cut from the Fun-Fetti Fri-Dies set. The Fun-Fetti set initially screamed SHAKER card to me, and I'm sure I'll be using them for that in the near future, but I also love that they can be used almost like a sequin but without the bulk.
For my next card, I used Sassy Smiles for a cheerful, hang in there, keep smiling, kind of creation. I wanted to keep it bright, bold and FUN.
The patterned paper was the start of my inspiration and I took my colour scheme from it. The card base has a few lime green splatters here and there (I'm all about the splatters today!). I heat embossed the big SMILE sentiment in lime green, and the rest in white on dark grey cardstock. I used a few of the flowers from the Fun-Fetti Fri-Dies to finish it off. I cut them from pink cardstock, then heat embossed with a clear sparkly powder. That sparkle embossing powder is really getting a workout today. :)
That's it for today! Don't forget to head on over to the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps blog to see what the other talented designers have come up with. Comment over there today and everyday this release for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the store. :) See you tomorrow!
