November Sneak Peek Week- Day 1

Welcome to Day 1 of CAS-ual Fridays Stamps
November
 Sneak Peek Week!!

I'm so glad you're here to join the party!
We have 4 fantastic holiday sets debuting this week, 
and we'll be showing you inspiration from a new one each day.
They are all 4 x 6 and packed with fun!

Joining us each day this week is a very special guest.
I'm just thrilled to bits to have her with us!
Many of you know and love her from Splitcoaststampers.
Please join me in a noisy woot woot for 
Beate Johns!!!

Since Hanukkah comes early this year,
the first set we'll show you is 
8 Happy Nights

Beate has created a scrumptious card!
The bit of twine tied onto the dreidel is awesome, and how about that texty background!


Oh my goodness! Beate is making me swoon with her perfectly placed accents!
Look at the little stars stamped onto the texty background, and the button tied onto the large star!


Laurie is so clever, she used the little mini stars as candle-light. 
Such a fun and happy touch!

Lynn also created her own texty background with the fun dreidel text.
I love her scatter of dreidels! They look like they are happily spinning on her card :)

I carefully inked up all the "happys" with different color inks for a fun, and festive menorah.
That little strip of sparkle is actually glitter ribbon trimmed to size!
So easy and fun!


Piali used sparkly strips too! I just love the wonderful border she created for the clean, graphic sentiment.  Nothing says celebration quite like a little bling ;)

Karen has created a really pretty, and wonderful pattern panel using the dreidel and various stars.
Just gorgeous! 

Lisa created fabulous dreidels by paper piecing them! I just love all the happy colors!
Just love this to pieces!
**edited to say: while it looks like paper piecing, she actually used Primo sculpey clay!
Check out her blog post to see how she created this card!

So what do you think so far?
Did Beate and the Girl Fridays rock this first set, or what?!
The fun is just starting!
One of you lucky ducks is going to win this set!
Because every single comment means the world to me, 
I'll be giving away a set from each sneak peek day 
to a random comment.

Wow! The creations look AMAZING! Everyone did such a great job. I wish there were links to the DT members so I can tell them how much I love their cards on their blog. I will hop on over to the challenge blog and find them there.
Thanks so much for letting me play along. I am having a blast with your new stamps!

I love all these cards - it is so hard to find a good Hannukah set - can't wait to get my hands on this one!

Debbie said...

The DT rocks! What a great Hanukkah set -- so hard to find single Hanukkah stamps let alone a whole set. Looking a lot like this month's release is going to be as awesome and last month's was.
