CAS-ual Fridays February Stamp Sneak Peek Day 1

Happy Hump Day!! I hope everyone is having a FABULOUS Wednesday.

What better way to celebrate the middle of the week with a sneak peek to the new release from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps! Today I am sharing two projects I created with two new stamp sets-"Special Delivery" and "Heartfelt Sayings."

On my first card, I used the mailbox in "Special Delivery" as the main focus for my card. This mail box can be die cut with the previous released "Mailbox Fri-dies."

To start off my card I stamped the mailbox, the envelope and the the mailbox front again from the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps "Special Delivery" set onto white card stock and colored the images in with Copic markers. I then added glitter glue and crystal drops in various colors over the middle of each flower on the mail box.

While these elements were was drying, I die cut two rectangles, one out of white card stock and one out of patterned paper. Over the card stock I lightly blended green and blue dye ink to create the illusion of grass and sky. I then stamped a sentiment from "Special Delivery" in black ink. I adhered both rectangles to a pink A2 top folding card. I tucked a pink circle under the inked panel.

It was time to die cut the mail box out that I had stamped and the little black flag. The mail box was a little too tall for my rectangle so I cut a bit off the bottom. I also used a craft knife to cut a slit in the left side of the mailbox front and slipped the stamped letter that I had fussy cut.

I adhered the black flag to the mailbox and added a rhinestone to give it a more shine. The last step was to pop up the lid of the mail box that I had created using foam adhesive. 

Here is a sneak peek of the whole set. Don't you just love the little hearts in the sentiments?

I had so much fun coloring and will be making another project with this mailbox soon.

For my second project, I combined the "Special Delivery" and the new "Heartfelt Sayings" stamp set. The sentiments in the "Heartfelt Sayings" stamp set have little hearts in them too!

I began the card by stamping the envelope from the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps "Special Delivery" set repeatedly onto a piece of white card stock with black dye ink. To make the envelopes look as if they were overlapping, I did a bit of masking. Next I stamped some little hearts randomly around the front.

I stamped the sentiment using the "Heartfelt Sayings" set and used my Copic markers to color everything in. I went over the hearts with a clear sparkle pen and then added some Glossy Accents over the top to give all the hearts a little more oomph.

Once the card front dried, I used a double cut frame to die cut it. I adhered the outside of the frame to a white A2 sized, top folding card.

I then used foam adhesive to the middle panel and placed it into the frame. I love the dimension it gives the card.

I have to say that this is my FAVORITE card that I created for this whole release and will be doing some others with the "Heartfelt Sayings" sentiment set.

The stamps will be in the CAS-ual Fridays Stamp store starting on Saturday, February 4, 2017. Please use my code nora2017 to get a 15% discount on your total order.
