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

Wow, the response to the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps August New Release products has been incredible and thank you so much everyone for all your wonderful comments!!

We are already up to Day 3 of the New Release and today we are showing off a new stamp and co-ordinating die set.

Introducing Bushy Tailed and Foxy Banner Fri-dies:

These are the sweetest little critters and love they come with co-ordinating dies for both the animals and the banner, which can be used with so many other sentiments!!

I wanted these two little cuties to be the star of my design, so kept everything pure white so they definitely stood out:

These are so much fun to colour and match up really well with the dies too, which makes a huge difference!

I started by stamping both of these critters with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on white CS, coloured with Altenew Artist Markers and die-cut out with their co-ordinating dies.

To create somewhere for them to sit, I cut a panel of white CS the same size as my card front and then die-cut two holes using the smallest circle die from the Ornament Tag Fri-dies. I made a small mark with pencil where the holes would sit over the card front and blended Distress Ink 'Salty Ocean' over that area. I also sprinkled it with water and used tissues to remove some of the colour for a 'speckled' effect.

I added lots of foam tape to the die-cut panel and put it in place. I then added foam tape to the back of the critters and tucked them into the holes. I stamped the banner and sentiment (from the same Bushy Tailed set) and die-cut out. I added a little colour to it with one of the Altenew Artist Markers and popped it on foam tape, along with some gold and blue sequins from Neat and Tangled.

All of these New Release products are available right now to purchase. If you use my special code you can save yourself some money!!
