Yippee, you finally get to see these gorgeous stamps!! Welcome to Day 2 of the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps August New Release. When today's stamp set arrived in my mailbox, I was giddy with excitement and I desperately wanted to show them to you right away......so finally here we have 'Tutu':
Aren't these the cutest ballerina's ever??!!!!! I don't know how Michelle (the owner of CAS-ual Fridays Stamps) came up with this design but she totally knocked it out of the park for originality!! I can't wait to see this beautiful dancers all over social media! I love these so much I got a bit carried away and created two cards for you:
I desperately wanted to see how these stamps would heat emboss and it turns out they are quite fabulous!! I fussy cut this dancer out and popped her to the side. I stamped Full on Floral on the card front with a soft pink to create a pretty background for her. I then die-cut a soft pink paint chip with the smaller die from the Funky Square Fri-Dies. The square was popped up on foam tape and so was the dancer. All I had to do then was heat emboss the sentiment in gold and adhere it in place, along with some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh, including our Sistahood Sparkle Sequin Mix.
For my second card I wanted to keep it clean and simple. I cut a panel of white CS and stamped each dancer twice using my MISTI to make sure they had perfect coverage. I put the panel on a slightly larger piece of black CS and then adhered to the card front. For the sentiment I did the same thing after stamping the sentiment in black. To add some dimension I used some Nuvo Crystal Drops in 'White' and added a droplet to the middle of each flower. I left them overnight to dry and found the next morning that the white drops had taken on the ink colour!! And of course I had to add some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh too!
