CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Release Day 5

We are on to day 5 people! Woot woot!  And I am so happy you are here!  Your comments and kind words have really just made my week, you people rock! For today's post I am sharing two very different cards with two different stamp sets soon to be released by CAS-ual Fridays...

My first card uses a chalkboard look with the new Mistletoe & Holly Stamp Set...



To create this card I started by stamping and embossing the holly and sentiment with white embossing powder.  I then used a white colored pencil over the image before going over it with a colored pencil.  I then finished it off by smudging some white pigment ink randomly on the card stock, and added some red rhinestones to set it all off.  I then adhered this panel to patterned paper.

My next card is fun, funky and totally not traditional in any sense of the word...



For this card I used the new Holly Jolly Borders Stamp set which has some really great images for making backgrounds, borders or however you wish to use them.  I used the lines to stamp my background first then I hap-hazardly went over the lines with the thicker end of my Copics.  I love the fun artsy look it created, and it totally saved me the stress of trying to color perfectly in the lines.  I also decided this card just needed to be loud and fun!  I then used dies from the Tag Ornament Fri-dies to add some sparkle and to frame my sentiment from the Christmas Sparkle Stamp Set. I also chose to pop my sentiment up with foam adhesive.

Now make sure you pop over to the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Blog for lots more inspiration and details on how you can win a gc to buy some of these new goodies when they are released!  Also, don't forget to use my coupon code to save a little money when you make your purchases too!
