"Sassy Smiles" with CAS-ual Fridays Stamps

Today it is my turn for some inspiration for the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Blog.

I combined the "Sassy Smiles" stamp set with one of my FAVORITE Fri-Dies-"Linked" (now on the retirement list!!) for a super easy card.

My first step for this card was to use the "Linked Fri-Dies" to die cut the border. I then blended "Wilted Violet" Distress Ink in different shades across the border.

I took the remaining part of the white card base and did the smooshing technique with the same color ink. I set the card front aside to dry.

While the card front was drying, I used the "Smiling Fri-Dies" to die cut the smile sentiment out of a scrap of purple paper three times. I then glued these three layers together.

Once the card front was dry, I adhered the card front together with the border, using a scrap of acetate as a base.

I did a bit of masking and stamped "it's the one thing that always fits" from "Sassy Smiles" with black dye ink above the purple border. I then adhered the the die cut "smile" above the stamping.

I added some clear sequins around the sentiment and topped them off with silver Stickles. The last step was to apply Glossy Accents to the die cut word and border. I wish you could see this in real life because it is a cool effect.
