Wow, we’ve had five fantastic days over at CAS-ual Fridays previewing the new holiday release and today’s the last day! Who’d have thought? Only one more day until all the awesome new stamps and dies are released on July 16, 2016. And today is the last day to enter into my giveaway!
I mention it in my video, but it bears repeating: nothing is ever as perfect as it appears on camera. I messed up two card bases completely before I got it right – I triple stamped the star border from the new “Star of David” set to get a perfect impression from the very light ink I was using. And my card always shifted on the last stamping, so I finally got smart and adhered it with post it tape to hold it in place. Deceptively simple cards can be the most troublesome!
I didn’t want to distract from that gorgeous border, or from the beautiful sentiment that came with the “Snowy Sayings” stamp set, so I only added a few star sequins from Pretty Pink Posh with my Glossy Accents, and that’s it! I left the card alone – very hard for me, seeing all that white space that could be filled, but I thought it was best this way.
Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you got inspired!
I’ll be giving “Bring on the Snowflakes”, “Snowy Sayings”, and “Funky Flakes Fri-Dies” (the products I introduced on day one of this series) to one lucky winner. All you need to do is leave me a comment on each of the release blog posts this weeks (I’ll have one each day) and I’ll be announcing the winner Saturday morning here on my blog when the release goes live and you can start your shopping.
