Hi everyone! I don't know what happened to our lovely, hot Spring weather but I'm sitting here typing this in my Winter pj's and socks, thinking I might light the fire. There was a big frost this morning and supposed to be another one tomorrow (yuck) so will garden a bit later in the morning so things can thaw out. By the weekend we are back to hot sunny days, so no wonder people have been getting sick, so many temperature fluctuations!!
We are on to our third day at CAS-ual Fridays Stamps showing you all the New Release. Today we have a new stamp set with two sentiment dies. Introducing 'Hooray Fri-dies' and 'Sassy Celebration' :
I've used the stamp set and one of the dies from the 'Hooray Fri-dies' set. There is also a 'Celebrate' die included. I wanted to make this a bright, shiny 'party' card and think the stars really set the scene.
I started by using the rectangle die from the 'Pinked Slimline Fri-dies' with some white CS. I then grabbed the 'Stars Fri-dies' which has 3 different sizes. Using some gold CS from Craft Smith I die-cut the biggest star 4x. I then die-cut the middles of them with the next size star and then die-cut the smallest star from the same gold CS. I used the middle star die on some blue glitter CS and die-cut the smallest star from the middle. This gave me four big stars with a blue and gold star in the middle.
Using Gina K Connect Glue I adhered the stars to the white CS rectangle die-cut and cut off any overhang. I then glued those cut off pieces here and there to carry on the pattern. The panel was adhered to the white card base. I die-cut the 'Hooray' die from a similar blue CS and then 3x from white CS. These were glued together and then to the card. The sentiment (from 'Sassy Celebration') was heat embossed on the same blue CS using 'WOW! Metallic Gold Sparkle' embossing glitter. I backed it with the same gold CS and put on foam tape, along with Studio Katia pearls. And gave it more sparkle with Wink of Stella over 'Hooray'.
