CAS-ual Fridays Stamps: March Sneak Peek #2

Welcome back for Sneak Peek #2 for the March release at CAS-ual Fridays Stamps!

Michele has created a beautiful new stamp set called Casual Comfort 
and a coordinating Fri-Dies called Casual Trees. 
Another lovely set with so many possibilities!

For the card above, I used one of the Casual Trees Fri-Dies (two come in the set) with cork. I loved the natural feel of it mixed with the watercoloring, which is not my strongest talent, but I'm trying to learn. I stamped the coordinating stamp in pale pink ink to kind of fade in with the watercoloring. That wooden banner fit the sentiment perfectly, but I debated on it. Does it seem too "festive"?

For my next card, I used the second die in the Casual Trees Fri-Dies to create a stencil and then filled it with modeling paste. (See this post for explanation and a picture.) I *planned* on coloring the paste with chalks or ink, but I chickened out. lol! I will go back and try it, though, because I am curious to see if I can do it. I wanted this card to show the versatility of Casual Comfort. I love all the sentiments Michele includes with the stamp sets; she makes it so easy to personalize and build your own greeting. 

Be sure and head over to the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps blog now to check out the rest of the cards from the design team. You won't believe how many different looks were created with this set!

Thanks so much for stopping by! 
I hope to see you tomorrow for Sneak Peek #3 of the March release!
