CAS-ual Fridays Stamps - May New Release - Day 2

Hi there and welcome to Day 2 of the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps May New Release!! We have another stamp and die set to share with you today!!

Introducing Best Day Ever stamp set and Best Day Fri-dies: 

I love these so much, the size is perfect and the font so dreamy. These will be used ALOT!!

For me, nothing makes me happier than rainbow colours on a card, so I had to use them with this stamp!! I used the largest Bubble Box Fri-die on some Strathmore Bristol Smooth CS but to make it fit my card base I trimmed down the sides. To add some interest along the bottom I die-cut one of the Lovely Links Fri-dies.

I heat embossed the 'Best Day Ever' on the die-cut in white and then used a 'rainbow' of Distress Ink colours to watercolour the background. I also used the same colours to paint the die-cut along the bottom. I added a piece of grey CS to the card front, as I find dark grey makes bright colours pop even more. The panel plus the die-cut bottom link were then popped up on foam tape, along with some sequins from Neat and Tangled.

I created this card with my Mum in mind as I gave it to her for Mothers Day. And she loved it!!

I started by heat embossing flowers from the 'Best Day Ever' stamp set and the Pretty Posies stamp set in white on some Strathmore Bristol Smooth CS. I watercoloured them (once again with rainbows in mind....) using my Gansai Tambi watercolour paints. I used the matching dies for the 'Best Day Ever' flowers and the matching Posies Fri-dies for the rest.

Using a die from the Bubble Box Fri-dies on some black CS, I glued on the 'Best Day Ever' die-cut, which was put together with 2x die-cuts from white CS and the top one from gold CS. The black panel was put on foam tape. Then using double-tape behind the flowers, I put them into place under it. I then finished it off with some gold sequins from Neat and Tangled.
