Day 1 is starting off with a 'floral' bang as we release a floral stamp set with matching dies:
Say hello to Pretty Posies and Posies Fri-Dies!! These are the most fabulous doodle-like flowers, perfect for colouring and coming with sentiments for any occasion. And to have the matching dies is a huge bonus, so no fussy cutting needed!!
For my first card I wanted to show the stamps on their own so you can get an idea of how they stamp:
I cut a panel of white CS slightly smaller than my card front and randomly stamped the flowers and leaf in black ink. I then used my mini-blending tool and Distress Ink 'Picked Raspberry' on the card front to create the ombre effect. The panel was then popped up on foam tape. The sentiment was heat embossed in gold and I added some pink and gold sequins from Neat and Tangled.
For my second card I wanted to show how well the matching fri-dies work with the stamped images:
I started off by stamping the flowers and leaf on some white CS and colouring with my pencils. I then cut them all out using the matching fri-dies. I used the larger die from the Scallop Tags Fri-Dies set with some white CS and cut out two tags. I used the Posies Fri-Dies to cut into one tag with the three flower sizes and glued the other tag behind it. That way I could inlay the purple, blue and one of the small pink flowers into the tag.
I adhered the leaves behind the tag and two more pink flowers on top, and then popped the tag up on foam tape on the card front. The sentiment was stamped in black on a strip of white CS and I added some co-ordinating sequins from Neat and Tangled.
So what do you think?? I love both of these sets and can see them being used a lot for many of my cards. And don't forget, you can use my Girl Friday code to save yourself 15% on your CAS-ual Fridays Stamps purchases.
