CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Sneak Peek--Loving Thoughts


Hi friends!  I have two special cards to share today.  This week we're bringing you sneak peeks of the newest CAS-ual Fridays Stamps to be released on January 18th.  You can find all of the details about the schedule of events, including the sneak peeks and prizes, on the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps blog.


Today's cards were made with a new set called Loving Thoughts.  For the first card, I did some masking with a Post-it note and stamped a frame using one of the flower images in the set.  I just love how it turned out!  I nestled one of the sentiments in the corner, added a pierced frame, and mounted the panel with foam dots on a square of plum cardstock.

Cardstock:  Papertrey Ink (Vintage Cream), Stampin' Up! (Perfect Plum)
Stamps:  CAS-ual Fridays Stamps (Loving Thoughts)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Rich Razzleberry)

My second card uses the floral images in a more traditional way, stamped onto a kraft card base with a masked strip for the sentiment.  I love the look of the red, black, and white stamped onto kraft.


I selectively inked the sentiment to make the word "love" stand out and added scored lines on either side.

Cardstock:  Papertrey Ink (Kraft)
Stamps:  CAS-ual Fridays Stamps (Loving Thoughts)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Real Red), Memento (Tuxedo Black), Clearsnap (Frost White)
Tool:  Martha Stewart Crafts (scoring board)

Don't forget to visit the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps blog to see more creations by the Girl Fridays with this new set.

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope your week gets off to a great start.

You are really showing off that new stamp set to great advantage. I love both of your cards. I never thought to do what you did with the masked frame on your first card--it's such a cool look.

Wonderful cards!

OK you are officially a stamping master! "A little masking" code for "hang on to your hats people"!! Your first is just stunning Christina! I love the contrast of the eggplant and white, and your second - I know that would have taken me several tries to get the sentiment in the embossed section spaced perfectly - forget all the rest! Well done!

I love the font. Reminds me of the old (old!) Arctic Frog letter stickers.
