CAS-ual Fridays Stamps January Release #3: Smitten

Welcome back to the 3rd and last day of the January release for CAS-ual Fridays Stamps!

Today we have a fabulous new stamp set: Smitten!

This set is another beautiful combination of big, block sentiments and graceful, scripty ones. I love the old-fashioned word "smitten" and use it along with "courting" all the time when reminding my dh of our early romantic days! hehe!

For my card above, I embossed the sentiments, then made a watercolor heart around them. To me it looks like a heart tornado, which actually fits pretty well, I think! lol!

For my card below, I kept it super simple and played along with the CAS(E) This Sketch #104. I embossed the sentiment in black, then used the heart die from the new Tic Tac Toe Fri-Die (shown yesterday) with some glittery red cardstock. 

Be sure and head over to the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps blog and see the the beautiful cards from the rest of the design team and leave a comment for a chance to win Smitten! The January release will be available at the CFS store website on Saturday, but keep checking over there because Michele is known to let things out a little early sometimes! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs & happy stamping!
