The Truth Is



The truth is out, I love these CAS-ual Fridays Stamps. I hope you enjoyed five days of inspiration featuring the inaugural sets from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps. Today is the last day for sneaks, and the feature is Truth Is, a beautiful set that includes a large striking image and absolutely amazing sentiments.



The base for my card today started out with inked orange watercolor paper. I sprayed some pearl mist and water for a cool effect, waited for it to dry and then stamped the flowers and sentiment. To get the blue on top of the orange, I colored in the blank areas of the flower in with gel pen and then covered that with an alcohol based marker. As you can see, I used the CAS-ual Fridays colors again, going as bright and bold today as the colors were soft and gentle yesterday!

I'm sure you already know, but as a reminder...CAS-ual Fridays Stamps are the finest quality, photopolymer stamps made in the USA. They stamp like a dream! The stamps aren't just for the clean and simple crafters out there, Michele has designed them with all types and levels of card makers out there! Being the sweetheart that she is, Michele is giving away a set each day..all you have to do is comment on the store blog and comment on each of the sneak posts for your chance to win! Don't forget that you also can play along in this week's CAS-ual Fridays Challenge too: Over the Edge for your chance to win this entire new release of CAS-ual Fridays Stamps!

I'd like to thank Michele again for the opportunity to showcase her designs and the grand welcome back as a Girl Friday for the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge. I love the fact that I was able to help out in just the teeniest way from the beginning, and to see her dream grow is amazing.
