CAS-ual Fridays Stamps July Holiday Release Day 6

Happy Friday! It is another day of sneak peeks from the new CAS-ual Fridays Stamps sets that will be available this Saturday, July 16, 2016 in the store. That is tomorrow so you don't have long to wait!!

Today I am showcasing a simple card I created using the new CAS-ual Friday Stamps "Star of David" and "Spin the Dreidel" stamp sets.

I knew exactly what I wanted to do when I saw these sets. When I was in elementary school, I remember having classmates parents come in and teach us how to play the dreidel game, as well as give us the history behind the Hanukkah holiday. (Something that you would never be able to do now with all the secularism in school. ) These parents used to bring in brightly colored dreidels and chocolate coins for each student. It is one of the few happy memories I have of this time in my life. I created my card with the colors of those dreidels in mind.

I started off this card by stamping the sentiment from the "Star of David" set with black dye ink. I then stamped the different dreidels from the "Spin the Dreidel" set randomly around the sentiment.

Next I colored in each dreidel with Copic markers and highlighted them with a combination of Stickles, Glossy Accents and Nuvo Crystal Drops.

For the blue borders, I used a combination of blue glitter tape and a stamped border strip from the new CAS-ual Fridays Stamps "Holly Jolly Borders" set that I had colored in with blue Copics. My last step was to adhere a trio of sequins in colors that matched some of my dreidels.
