CAS-ual Fridays Stamps: July Sneak Peek #1

Have you heard the exciting news?!

CAS-ual Friday Stamps is now offering dies!

Oh, and I also left the CAS-ual Fridays challenge blog to join the Ink Squad team!
Squeal! I'm so excited to join the other amazing designers, I'm still pinching myself!

Today kicks off the Sneak Peeks for the new July CAS-ual Fridays Stamp and Fri-Dies!

Today's Sneak Peek shows off the new Loving Blooms Die 
that coordinates with the Loving Thoughts stamp set. 

I knew I wanted to make a baby card, so I started with some sweet fabrics to use with the Loving Blooms die. I used 3 of the 4 dies, then ran a small basting stitch on each one to sort of gather and scrunch up the flowers. After that, I layered the 3 flowers and sewed them together under a crystal button using some pink and white Baker's Twine. 

For my sentiment, I went with tone-on-tone ink to match the cardstock, then embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder so it would pop a little more. For the top pink flag under the word "little", I stamped the largest flower from Loving Thoughts with pink ink on pink cardstock, then cut the flag out of that. Lastly, I added a little dry embossing along the bottom, washi tape, ribbon, and twine, and voila! My baby card is ready!

Make sure you head over to the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps blog to check out the cards from the rest of the Ink Squad! You won't believe all the different looks the girls came up with using the new Loving Blooms Dies!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Come back tomorrow for Sneak Peek #2! 
Hugs and happy stamping!
