Hello, hello! We are doing something different this month for CAS-ual Fridays new release - we are having a big blog hop with the whole design team as well as some special guests!! There will be prizes galore, so be sure to comment on each blog for a chance to win one of FIVE $20 CFS gift certificates - and comment on the CFS blog for a chance at a $50 gift certificate!! Wowza!
OK - so on to my projects! My very favorite of the new release is up first - this card uses the new release stamp sets Floating & So Pretty .
I used an oldie but goodie technique here - Joseph's Coat. To do it, I sponged a bunch of different colors of Catherine Pooler inks onto white cardstock. Next I heat embossed the hot air balloons from floating with clear embossing powder. After it cooled for a few seconds, I swiped the CP Black ink direct to paper over the entire piece.
The end result is so gorgeous and vivid! I took it a step further, and removed the shiny embossing by lifting it with a warm iron (I covered the panel with a plain piece of paper and ironed over it to remove the powder). I combined sentiments from the two stamp sets and heat embossed them in white.
My next card uses Rad & Modern Petals. This set is going to be awesome for all those masculine cards that are SOOOOO difficult to create, lol!!
The Modern Petals set is a lot of fun to play with - the color combinations are endless!
For my last card, I used a sentiment from So Pretty stamped with a Hero Arts Ombre ink pad. The stars are from Twinkle.
I added a little sparkle to this one with Nuvo Drops, Spectrum Noir sparkle marker & glitter tape!
I'm the last stop on the hop! I hope you've had fun! Head over to CAS-ual Fridays to shop the new release - the stamps are available right now! And be sure to use my special code, KIMBERLY2017 to save 15% off your entire purchase - yes, even these amazing NEW stamps!!! How awesome is that?!
