CAS-ual Fridays New Release - Day 2!

Hello, hello!   I'm bringing a little more Christmas to your July today with two more brand-y new stamp sets from CAS-ual Fridays!!   These are super fun - and they can also be used year round!  Without further ado - I bring you Christmas Sparkle and Tag Ornament Fri-Dies!


For my first card I used just the Christmas Sparkle stamp set.   Those fun rings could be stamped in any color your heart desires, and some of the sentiments can be used all year round - so this one is practically essential to have in your stash, lol!!

I stamped several of the circles, overlapping a bit in Versamark ink and heat embossed them using colorful embossing powder by WOW!  The bright colors pop so much on the black cardstock!  The 'Believe' sentiment was also heat embossed on black cardstock, cut out and stacked for some dimension.   I adhered it in the lower corner of the embossed piece, then rounded the right side corners of the black piece for some interest.

I stamped and heat embossed the starbursts, also from Christmas Sparkle, with clear embossing powder onto a red cardstock strip.   I adhered that to my card base and added the black piece to the center of my card.   I rounded the right side corners of the card and that finished this one off!

My next card uses both the Christmas Sparkle stamp set and the Tag Ornament Fri-Dies.   I cut the ornament out by nesting the large and small circles as I die cut them - resulting in a circular frame.   I colored my frame red with a Copic marker and then added sequins around the edge.   I lightly blended some Peacock Feathers Distress Ink onto the smaller circle and then stamped the 'Merry Christmas' sentiment from Christmas Sparkle in the center.   I die cut the ornament topper and hook from some shiny silver paper I found in my stash - perfection!  I let the hook dangle loosely for a realistic look.

  2. The sequins around the frame rather than in the
    frame is a fun touch.
    The circles on the first card really pop.
    Love both projects.
