CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Sneak Peek Day 2

Hello everyone!! Are you ready for another CAS-ual Fridays Stamps sneak peek? I know you are going to LOVE these two new stamps sets. I know I do!!

Today I am showcasing the new "Flower Power" and "Peace Out" stamp sets.

For my first card, I created a simple card using the "Flower Power" set.

To start off the card, I scored a 1/4" border around the edge of a piece of kraft card stock cut to a 4 1/4" by 5 1/2". I then stamped the word "love" using the "Flower Power" stamp set.

Next I did a bit of masking and stamped "i just" from yesterdays "Heartfelt Sayings" sneak peek set in black ink. I colored the little hearts above the letters with a red gel pen.

I mounted the panel onto a kraft, A2 sized card base. I then used foam adhesive to attach the "you" sentiment that I had stamped and heat embossed on black paper.

My last step was to adhere some red sequins to the card and use some red glitter glue in the center of the heart on the "o."

Here is a sneak peek of the whole set:

I plan to make bunch more of these to give away for Valentines day. It was such a fun and easy card to create!!

For my next card, I used the "Peace Out" stamp set and some Distress Ink smooshing to make a tie die card.

I stamped the "peace" sentiment from "Peace Out" with Versamark ink onto a piece of watercolor paper. I then heat embossed with fine white embossing powder.

Next I used four different shades of distress ink and swiped them over a piece of acetate in random areas. I spritzed water over the ink, picking up the acetate so the inks would drip into each other. I then placed the watercolor paper embossed side down and made sure the front was flat on the inked acetate so that the paper would pick up the ink. I LOVE how this came out. It really looks like a tie dye, which is the effect I was trying to get.

When the paper was dry, I adhered it over an A2 top folding card. My last step was to use some glitter glue randomly and in various colors over the middle of the flowers. I was in a hurry to photograph this and will say that the dots got smaller as they dried.

Here is a sneak peek of the full set:

Again, this set was so FUN to use and am going to try to create another tie dye card with the peace sign.
