CAS-ual Fridays Release - Day 4

It's release day at CAS-ual Fridays Stamps and I have just one more card to share with you.  Today we are sharing cards using the new set,  Chanukah.  Chanukah is a wonderful addition to the already large Judaica stamps available in the store.  I love the fonts and swirls here.  I couldn't help but add a few sparkly stars to the mix!

CAS-ual Fridays Release - Day 3

Pretty soon all of these fun new CAS-ual Fridays stamps will be available!  WOOT!  Has anything caught your eye?  How about this big, bold Noel from the soon to be released set Joy?!  

Joy is another gorgeous set, in contains stunning fonts with snowflake accents that are to die for.  The sentiments make a huge statement, so there's no need to do much more to spruce up your cards!  Here I simply sponged with red and green inks above and below the sentiment.  I've seen other stampers doing this with red and green and I just love it for the holidays.  A simple rhinestone in the center of the snowflake finishes this off perfectly!

Just one more set to introduce!  See you tomorrow!

CAS-ual Fridays Release - Day 2

Hello, and welcome back for Day 2 of the CAS-ual Fridays release.  I hope you all enjoyed a peek at WTF 2!  Today we introduce another new set called Bomb Diggity.  This is a fun set with fabulous fonts, I mean LOOK at that sentiment!  Michele certainly has a way with sentiments, I just love it!  The little ink splotches are also included in the set.  

I really wanted this fabulous sentiment to shine on my card, so I did some simple sponging and inking, then stamped the sentiment in black for a POP and a bold statement.

Head on over to the CAS-ual Fridays blog to see a ton of inspiration from the rest of the design team.  Then I'll see you back here for another introduction tomorrow!

CFS Release Week - WTF 2

Hello, and welcome to CAS-ual Fridays release week.  Over the next few days, the CAS-ual Fridays design team will be introducing you to some amazing new product.  

If you loved the original WTF, you will be thrilled to add this new and improved version to your stash.  CAS-ual Fridays Stamps is know for their fun and sassy sentiments and this set is just that.  

To make my card, I inked the sentiment in three different colors before stamping it onto my white panel.  I really wanted the sentiment to shine, so I added little else to the card.  The flower is from my favorite CFS floral set, Pretty Posies.  The rest of the stamps come from a set you will get to see tomorrow.  You can't wait, can you??  

Head on over to the CFS blog to see what the rest of the team did with WTF 2.

Never Give Up Hope for CAS-ual Fridays Stamps

It's a special month for CAS-ual Fridays Stamps.  Not only are we celebrating their 5th birthday but CAS-ual Fridays has gone PINK for Breast Cancer awareness.  Over the course of the month, the design team is sharing cards featuring the Calling All Sisters stamp line that Michele developed to raise awareness.  50% of the proceeds from these sets goes directly to breast cancer research and awareness programs.

Here I've featured the Hope Ribbon stamp, Ruffled Ribbon and Hope die.  

We've all been touch by breast cancer, I hope you'll help to support the cause by adding these products to your cart.  

Happy Birthday with CAS-ual Fridays Stamps

CAS-ual Fridays Stamps is celebrating their 5th birthday!  WOOT, happy birthday CAS-ual Fridays!!  I have been a fan from the very beginning.  CAS-ual Fridays filled a big gap in the industry...stamps that are suitable for teen and tween boys!!  Being a mom of two boys, this was huge for me.  

It's been fun watching CAS-ual Fridays grow, being a part of it, even better.  I got the pleasure of meeting Michele in person two years ago and she's just as fun and sassy as her stamps :)

Today I'm sharing a birthday card, in honor of CAS-ual Fridays 5th birthday.  Here I've combined the Curtis Background stamp, Truth is and Heartfelt Sayings.  I love how the CAS-ual Fridays stamp line works together flawlessly!

In celebration of CAS-ual Fridays 5th Birthday, all birthday stamps are on sale.  No coupon needed!

And, Truth Is is on special this month...

Thanks for stopping by!  I'll be back again tomorrow with another CAS-ual Fridays creation.

SOA Winterhaven collection Release Day!

YAY!  The Winterhaven collection is now available for purchase!  Hurry, it's only available while supplies last.  The past two collections sold out in record time, so make sure you get yours NOW!

I have one more card to share with you featuring the Tis the Season stamp set and the Good Stuff stamps and dies.

I feel like I'm starting to sound like a broke record but...CAS, easy to mass produce and mail are perfect for your holiday cards and this card fits the bill perfectly.  It uses simple stamping, limited layers and lots of white space.

To create my card, I stamped the poinsettia in Rockin' Red ink and gold embossed the center.  If you have the add-on Tis the Season dies, you can die cut the flower.  I did not, but it was easy enough to fussy cut.  Next I gold embossed the frame from the Good Stuff stamp set and the sentiment from Here We Come A-Caroling, then I die cut using the coordinating die.  On a 4 x 5 1/4" piece of white card stock, I stamped the berries in the same inks moving from the bottom right to the top left.  I finished the card by adding the layers using foam tape.  Easy peesy!

I hope you enjoyed my card today!  Happy shopping!
