CAS-ual Fridays Stamps: January Sneak Peek #1

Yay! It's time to start the sneak peeks of the new January release from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps!

Michele always blows me away with her awesome stamp designs, but this has to be my favorite release week ever! These designs are so fresh and fun, I haven't seen anything like them out there, and I know you are going to love them too!

Today's sneak peek shows off a new stamp set called Love Notes and a coordinating Fri-Die called Heart Note. Is that note die awesome or what?! You can't see the detail in my photo, but I stamped on the Heart Note die with the long, musical note stamp in Versamark and heat embossed it for tone-on-tone texture. To make the colored rings, I punched several different size circles and used the circle rings as a stencil to watercolor on ink with my Aquapainter. For the layout, I used this great clean and simple sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch #58.

I whipped up one more card below with my favorite sentiment from the set. Who else remembers the tune "Silly Love Songs"? I had the 45 record and played it on my little red record player. *smile* I also have a friend or two looking for their love match out there, so I know I'll be using this stamp a lot! Here I embossed the sentiment and musical notes with silver embossing powder and used the Heart Note Fri-Die again with silver glitter paper. Bam! My non-traditional color inspiration comes from the Matthew Williamson photo at this week's Runway Inspired Challenge.

Be sure and head over to the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps blog to check out the wild creativity coming from the rest of the design team! They came up with so many different, fun creations! 

I'll be back Tuesday morning with another new sneak peek! 
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!
