CAS-ual Fridays Stamps: May Sneak Peek #3

Welcome back to day 3 of the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps May Release sneak peeks!

I am so excited about today's release, I can't tell you!
We have a new stamp set called In the Cards and a coordinating Fri-Die called Shuffle!
I had more ideas for these items than I had time to create, so you will be seeing more in the near future!

For my card above, I used the Shuffle Fri-Die. It comes with the four suits and a rectangle with rounded edges, like a playing card. So I used the "diamond" die and then used some circle punches to make my ring. Does the card color remind you of Tiffany's? That's what I was going for! A girl can dream, right?!

My bright green card, above, I used the rectangular die on the card front, leaving it open, and used it again on white cardstock to make a "deck" of cards. Can you kind of tell how the white cards are standing up, poking through the window?

 I went thrifty and used white cardstock for the top card, but then used white copy paper for the rest of the deck. I stamped about 6 or 7 of the cards, then left the rest plain white, and glued them all together, except the top 1/4" so then you can "shuffle" them. 

For my last card, above, I did some old-fashioned masking to make the Ace cards. This one was actually super simple, sometimes you forget those basic techniques, ya know?

I hope you are excited about this new set and Fri-Die, too! Head over to the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps blog to see all the images and die up close! The rest of the Girl Fridays have amazing samples to share, too, I know you'll love them!

Come back for one more sneak peek tomorrow!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs and happy stamping!

Awesome, awesome idea on the engagement ring, Angie!! Way to show the versatility of the set. And your deck of cards popping through the window is another super-fun idea! My son would get excited seeing all those cards. You totally rocked this release : )
