Wow, we are already up to Day 3 of the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps October New Release. I hope you've liked what you've seen so far and enjoyed all the projects by the Girl Fridays!!
Today we introduce 'Joy':
I really love stamp sets that have large words, so I fell in love with this set straight away!! The font is gorgeous and I love the intricate snowflakes too. I desperately need to make more Christmas cards and decided to use my favourite colour combo for this design:
I so wish I could have captured the sparkle and shimmer on this card with my camera, it looks dazzling in person!!
To start off I cut a tag from watercolour CS using the largest die from the 'Tag Buddies Fri-Dies' set. I stamped and heat embossed the 'joy' in white, and then used my mini-blending tool and Distress Ink 'Salty Ocean' to colour the whole tag. To give it some interest I sprayed it closely with Imagine Crafts 'Sheer Shimmer Sparkle Spritz' (trying saying that 3x quickly...) so that I would get small pools of spritz on the tag. I touched the blobs gently with tissue to absorb the liquid and it left the tag with a watery pattern and lots of shimmer.
Next I cut a panel of white CS slightly smaller than the card front. I die-cut the tag from the middle of it and then stamped the snowflakes randomly using Waffle Flower ink in 'Daydreaming'. I put the panel up on foam tape and then pressed the tag into the space. For the sentiment I used one from 'Snowy Sayings' and put it on foam tape, along with some clear and blue sequins from Neat and Tangled.
