Day 2 of the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps March 2021 Release

Happy Wednesday. It is the middle of the week and it has been so beautiful here in the Northeast. I know it is only a tease though, as we tend to still get snow in March and April.

Today I am here with a sneak peek of the new CAS-ual Fridays Stamps release. I created two cards to showcase the new Flowerburst Stencil and the Sassy Smiles Duo stamp set. 

For my first card, I chose to use just the Sassy Smiles Duo stamp and die set to make a fun, graphic card design.

This was an easy and fun card to create. I started out by stamping the SMILE sentiment from the Sassy Smiles Duo set with red ink on a white, A2 card front. I stamped over the red with some  WOW! Clear Embossing Ink and covered it with WOW! Clear Embossing Powder. I then heat embossed the SMILE to give it the shine you see on the card.

Next I stamped the sentiment over and over again, across the card front, using shades of red and teal ink.

I used the heart from the Sassy Smiles Duo set and randomly stamped it with the different teal colors in between the stamped SMILE sentiments. 

I adhered the card front to a white, A2 card base and wrapped the top of the card with some teal twine. My last step was to use some red, Nuvo Crystal Drops around the embossed, red sentiment. 

This was one of my FAVORITE cards I created with this release and was so simple to create!!!

On my second card, I combined the Sassy Smiles Duo set and the new Flowerburst Stencil to create a clean and simple card.

I started off the card by blending Kitsch Flamingo Distress Ink across the entire card front. I then masked off the center of the panel with a heart and shaded some more pink ink over the exposed areas. When I removed the heart, it left a slightly lighter area of pink where it had been.

My next step was to use the same Kitsch Flamingo Distress Ink and the new Flowerburst Stencil to create the pink flowers across my card front. I tried to use different pressure with my blending tools so that some of the flowers would be brighter than the others.

Inside the heart, I stamped the sentiment from the Sassy Smiles Duo set in black. I used foam adhesive to adhere the SMILE that I had heat embossed with Kitsch Flamingo Embossing Glaze and then die cut using the matching die. My last step was to use white, Nuvo Crystal Drops around the heart to give it a bit of emphasis.
