CAS-ual Fridays Stamps - April New Release - Day 3

Here we go, we are up to Day 3 of the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps New Release!! We have already released two new stamp sets and one die set, so hope your ready for even more!!

Today we have for you the 'Thanks' stamp set with a co-ordinating ''Thanks Fri-Die':

I love the different sentiments this set offers and the different fonts and 'dot' details are fantastic!

For my first card I wanted to showcase the stamps with the block letters and 'dot' details:

I grabbed five different coloured ink pads from Hero Arts Shadow Ink 'Mid-tone' and very carefully stamped them across the card front, keeping the colours the same but trying to alter where the stamps were on the card. This is where a Mini-Misti would have been so handy!!!

I then used the 'Thanks' die to cut some black CS three times and also one from white CS. The black ones were all glued together with the white one on the bottom, slightly offset. This was adhered to the card front along with lots of Glossy Accents on top and some gold sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

For my second card I wanted to show the size of the die negative, so a shaker card was in order:

I started this one off by stamping the flowers from the 'Pretty Posies' stamp set in yellow on the card front. I then die-cut the larger tag from the 'Scallop Tag Fri-Dies' twice from some white CS. The 'thanks' was die-cut from one of the tags and a piece of acetate added behind it.I then added lots of foam tape to the back, especially around the letters to hold in the beads. I poured in some clear and pale yellow seed beads from The Ton and pressed on the other tag to hold the shaker together.

The rest of the sentiment was heat embossed in white on a strip of black CS and glued to the tag. A ribbon bow and some yellow and clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh finished it off.

I love making thank-you cards so this die and stamp set are going to be used a lot to create those. If your planning on purchasing this die or stamp set, or any CAS-ual Fridays Stamps products, don't forget to use my Girl Friday code to save yourself 15% off your purchase!!
