Day 3 of CAS-ual Fridays New Release

Happy Hump Day!! Today is day 3 of the CAS-ual Friday release. I have had so much playing with these fun stamps!! The design team is showing projects made with the new products that will be available on Saturday, April 30, 2016 at CAS-ual Fridays Stamps.

Today I am showcasing two cards that I created with the CAS-ual Friday "Thanks" stamps and matching Fri-dies.

On my first card, I used the "Thanks" stamp set with the "Tag Buddies Fri-dies" to make a simple thank you card.

I started the card by blending Squeezed Lemonade and Scattered Straw Distress Ink over a white card base. It was a little too bright so I added some WPlus9 "Falling Star" ink over the top to tone it down.

I then stamped the "thanks" sentiment over a small scrap of yellow patterned paper and die cut it using the smallest tag die in the "Tag Buddies Fri-dies" trio. I adhered the tags to my card using foam adhesive.

Next I stamped and cut out the small banner. I also used adhesive foam to adhere it below the "thanks" sentiment. My last step was to adhere some random coral colored gems around the sentiment to draw the eye right to it.

For my second card, I used the "Thanks Fri-Die" with the "Thanks" stamp set, as well as using a stamp set for the background that will be officially introduced on Friday.

I knew before I even designed this card that I wanted to layer thanks die cuts over each other in various shades of red so I began by die cutting some paper scraps. I set them aside and stamped a white background using the "Tin Roof" stamp set in yellow ink. (More about this set on Friday!!)

I layered the background over a yellow card base and added a black and white strip down the side. Next I adhered the "Thanks" die cuts over each other.

I stamped the "many" from the "Thanks" stamp set and adhered it above the die cuts using foam adhesive. It still looked a little bare so I decided to use glossy accents over the top die. Simple but oh so effective!

LOVE these, Nora, the card with the yellow tags is so darn cute (yellow is my favorite color and I adore polka dots), and the 2nd card is just as awesome as the first, love Tin Roof stamped in yellow with the pops of black and the shiny "thanks"!! Outstanding work!
