Day 2 of the September 2020 CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Release

 Happy Tuesday everyone!! 

Today I am posting some cards I created for Day 2 of the CAS-ual Fridays September 2020 release. I created two cards showcasing the Everyday Dragonflies stamp set and matching Dragonfly Fri-dies. The stamp set is the second product collaboration I had with Michele this month. 

For my first card, I stamped the largest dragonfly onto white cardstock and colored the flowers in with Tombow markers in shades of orange and red.

I die cut the dragonfly with the matching Dragonfly Fri-die and layered it over a piece of red cardstock that I had dry embossed with the previously released Tin Roof Stencil.

I stamped a sentiment from the new stamp set and die cut it out using the small banner from the new Slimline Pinked Fri-dies. I layered this over a larger banner that I had die cut and blended with shades of orange.

To complete my card, I used Glossy Accents down the center of the dragonfly and randomly used some Nuvo Glitter Drops around the dragonfly. Below are a peek at these new products.

For my second card, I combined the new Everyday Dragonflies Stamp set and yesterdays Slimline Pinked Edged die set to create a slimline card.

I stamped the large dragonfly onto a white cardstock panel that I had die cut using the large stitched die from the new slimline die set. I then stamped the smaller dragonfly twice toward the top.

Next I masked off the dragonflies, shaded the background with three shades of teal ink and did a Copic dot technique all over the panel. 

For my sentiment, I combined the "friend" die cut from the Sweet Friend Fri-die set and a sentiment from the dragonfly set. I created an ombre effect over the die cut to match the background.

I die cut an aqua panel using the pinked die and adhered it to a white, slimline card front. I adhered the colored card front on top of the pinked panel.

My last step was to use some Diamond Stickles on the dragonfly bodies and randomly over the wings.
