April Sneak Peek Day 3

Welcome to Day 3 of CAS-ual Fridays Stamps
April
Sneak Peek Week!

Are we having fun yet???

Today we show you inspiration from our 3rd new set.
I'm really excited about it because it's fun and stylish with just a bit of spunkiness. 

Introducing...
Bold Wishes

Michelle has created a super fun card that you can do too!
Pick 3 colors of ink, 1 coordinating ribbon  and you have a stunning card
ready to be drooled over!
I just love that funky diamond border stamped like that!!


Piali has used this big bold sentiment in a stand out way.
I just love the fun patterns she paired it with.


And this card is so fun with the cute stripes and double tied twine.
This would be fun for any age group!

I'm swooning over the gorgeous medallion Dana created by layering the stamps.
Just gorgeous and the sentiment in gold adds to the luxurious feel.


How pretty is this?!  I love the border layered together
and the fun blocks of color.
Just darling!


Kelly created a sweet one layer.
I love how she stamped the sentiment partially onto the large funky diamond!


What a great thank you card! I love how she embossed the sentiment
then fussy cut out the center of the 'u'.
So fabulously cool and graphic!


And this is such fun!  I love the sentiment stamped in the strip across the top of the card.
Love the fun blocks of color too!


Ooooh!  I love the small funky diamond border on an angle!
Lynn has done it again with a simple look that has a huge impact!
Notice that it's not quite one layer, but instead a white on white layering.
Yum!

Look how lovely the border looks when you stack it together!
I really like the way Virginia double stamped the sentiment. 
Simply stamp it in a light color first, then stamp it over in the black.
It creates a really cool shadow effect!

The pearl center on this doubled up fussy cut funky diamond
adds such a pretty touch to this wonderful thank you card!

Karen has a spectacular card for you!  
I love her double inked funky diamonds
with that big bold sentiment.



Loving this cool graphic card from Laurie!
The smooth color blocks, the simple bold sentiment,
and the fabulous scored stripes are a huge hit, don't you think?!

Aren't those projects just stunning???
Does anyone else feel the need to get inky right about now???

OK, who wants to win a prize??

***All you have to do is leave a comment right here on this post

  4. Wow, I think this is my fave stamp set yet! Love, love, love it. I tend towards salty snacks like mini pretzels, plan corn chips, olives and so on.. always terrified I'm going to mess up my card but it hasn't happened yet!

    ReplyDelete
  5. When I am cardmaking, I just drink Diet Coke, but M&Ms sound much better! I can never stop eating those. Peanut M&Ms are my favorite!!!!! I love this stamp set too! These cards are so creative! Can't wait til the reveal!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  6. Gorgeous cards! Thanks for sharing ;)
    I don't really have a favorite cardmaking snack--I'm usually concentrating too hard :D

    ReplyDelete
  7. I like all the colorful cards with this set.
    I usually have a piece of dark chocolate when I am crafting.

    ReplyDelete
  8. The DT projects are amaze-balls :)... love the versatility of these stamp sets... and eating during crafting?...no way.. I manage to smudge everything without food as it is..eating or drinking with pretty papers around has very high chances of knocking stuff on ready projects.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Beautiful DT projects!
    Hmm... does gum count as a "snack"? I don't usually have much around- fearing spillage or unintentional fingerprints!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Great cards all around!! When I craft, I don't snack! Unless you count coffee or tea!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  11. I don't usually snack when I craft out of fear of getting my project dirty!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I don't usually snack while creating either!!! But if I did.....would have to be a salty treat!!

    ReplyDelete
  13. No snacking allowed but a Sonic Coke with extra ice welll... that's allowed.

    ReplyDelete
  14. YES... i love it all.. the DT is amazing.. I do not have a craft snack but always have a cup of iced tea when crafting..

    ReplyDelete
  15. I don't snack while crafting, but I do drink herbal teas. Thanks for the chance, fabulous release!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'll confess - regular M&M's are my go-to treat. I have dh pick me up some from the M&M store in Vegas in the fun, hot colors. My favorite is the turquoise :). On a side note, I love the Wish Big sentiment - especially in the teal color ;)

    ReplyDelete
  17. Can't wait for the reveal! I always make myself a tea before I go downstairs to my craft space. I always have some jelly beans and chocolate on hand!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I try not to snack while crafting (I once knocked a cup of tea over).

    Big sentiments are so fun to use.

    ReplyDelete
  19. What amazing cards by the DT! When I craft, I usually have a few Dove dark chocolate squares on hand! Thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Each of these cards is beyond super....I love the stamps, the creativity, the colors. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Well, duh, I forgot to add: my snack of choice M&M's. Harriet

    ReplyDelete
  22. I keep a glass jar filled with peanut butter M&Ms. Sometimes for a change I'll get the pretzel M&Ms. :) Fun seeing all the new stamps....loving the new images.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Potato chips...but they make my fingers greasy...so second choice is baby carrots (much healthier but not nearly as good!)

    A-MAZING creations today! Michelle, your DT is second to none! Some serious talent that inspires me to create :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh goodness....I don't think I have a favorite stamping snack...stamping is the one time I DON'T eat! I get so involved I can skip 2 whole meals...unfortunately I snack ALL THE REST of my life so it's not like it's helping my waist line!!! Love all the gorgeous inspiration!!! I am going to add this blog to my reading list now!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Wonderful set of stamps! And such lovely cards too.

    As for a favourite stamping snack - NOT LIKELY!!! I'm too worried that I'd get chocolate or coffee all over my cards!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh - NO snacks allowed in the craft room! No Sir-ee! I don't like the idea of any kind of food product 'corrupting' my stamping supplies, LOL! Peanut M&Ms are my hubby's favorite food though! ;) My favorite outside-the-craft-room snack is popcorn (see? Wouldn't want my stamps and acrylic blocks and paper getting oily!) I really like this set, my collection is lacking BIG BOLD sentiments like this and they are perfect for CAS cards! Wonderful addition to the CAS line!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I tend to have holiday chocolate, bought after the holidays, in a container on my craft table. Could be M&M's, but right now it's chocolate Easter eggs.
    Awesome creations today. Truly love the bold sentiments!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Love, love the new bold stamp set. The DT did a super job showcasing them. My go to is always a big glass of iced tea on hand to sip on.

    ReplyDelete
  29. It's hard to believe that one stamp set could make so many pretty cards - and each one is so different. You wouldn't think it was the same set. Love it.

    1. I forgot my reply - I don't usually snack when I'm crafting. I do have a can of Pepsi by my side usually.

  30. Amazing projects - love the look of these new stamps. My favorite crafting snack is a can of diet soda - cardmaking is thirsty work !

    ReplyDelete
  31. Great release so far!! I'll pretty much snack on anything candy and I like having some Mio-flavored water to go with... if not a glass of wine. :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. I'm excited too...love the Boldness of these sentiments.

    ReplyDelete
  33. wonderful bold large sentiments in this set. When I craft I actually do not snack but if I did it would be a can of Coke.

    ReplyDelete
  34. My favorite stamping snack would have to be Un sweet Iced Tea, with a side of cinnamon coated almonds; or the spicy toasted pecans my husband makes at his hotel. Delish... Can't wait to see the new stamp sets!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Very cool cards everyone, looks like a great set! Since I Stay up late to make my cards I usually don't snack on anything because I've already brushed my teeth. My prefered snack of choice any other time is chocolate though =)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Tea if daytime, coffee at night ... a little bit of chocolate, or rice crispy marshmellows...

    ReplyDelete
  37. Awesome card inspiration as usual! Now onto your question...I prefer Trident Bubble Gum with a Mountain Dew. I make gum bubbles filled with the soda and then pop them inside my mouth. Crazy I know but, I have been doing that since I was a kid.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Love the cards!!! I snack on Red Vines when I'm crafting!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I love fruity candies...this time of year jelly beans are plentiful!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I really don't eat very much when I am stamping, but I do always have a cup of coffee!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Great eye candy today! Looking forward to the reveal!!! I am not a big snacker while stamping...but if I am reading up on blogs and getting ready to get crafty...I prefer a big ol' iced mocha coffee! (otherwise Peanut Butter M&M's are a close second).

    ReplyDelete
  42. Ok, these are awesome!!! I love them! I love eating a bowl of icecream or cookies while I craft!

    ReplyDelete
  43. This is my fave set from the release, I'm loving the border stamp! I don't snack while I craft but do like to drink a steaming cup of tea.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Awesome set! I don't snack while crafting but I do enjoy a glass of white wine.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I love this set too, what a fantastic release! M & M's you speak to my heart. My whole family know that Mom and M & M's milk chocolate and meant to be! Thanks for the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  46. One reason I like to make cards is because my craft room is upstairs, and my kitchen is downstairs. So crafting keeps me from snacking. I usually do have a cup of coffee or a glass of iced tea with me while snacking, though! I LOVE these stamps!

    ReplyDelete
  47. My fave stamping snack is also M&Ms--plain or peanut, whichever is around ;)

    ReplyDelete
  48. I don't have food in my craft room. I would have it all over everything. I do have a drink though like coffee, tea, energy drink, water . . . . I'm loving your new stamp sets. Can't wait to see them in person.

    ReplyDelete
  49. My favorite snack is licorice. Just enough sweet but it isn't messy at all.

    ReplyDelete
  50. LOVE everything I've seen in this set!! I always need my cup of coffee when I go up to my craft area!

    ReplyDelete
  51. gorgeous!

    my favorite stamping snack is something that's easy and doesn't get your hands dirty... like licorice or a smoothie.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I don't tend to snack when crafting. You don't really want to get your cards dirty, do you? ^_^
    This set is great. Love all the DT cards!

    ReplyDelete
  53. i don't have an answer for this one since i craft at night and purposely don't snack. Love the set though!

    ReplyDelete
  54. What an awesome set! No snacking while crafting but I do have some water or tea nearby.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Another must have set. I am not a big snacker when crafting but a bottle of water is a must.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I try not to snack while crafting because I'm so messy that I ruin my cards!!! BUT I do like to have anything chocolate when I'm browsing mags or PC for ideas. LOVE the bold birthday sentiments in today's sneak peek ... always looking for new b-day slogans.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I have such a tiny studio space that I don't actually have room for a snack. Maybe some green tea in a mug, safely off to the side. That said, I might prepare for a stamping session with some CHOCOLATE (what else)to get me in the mood, before I go upstairs to work. Maybe if I could give myself over to crafts every hour of the day I wouldn't snack so much, which would be a good thing. Will have to work on that.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I love these stamps and the DT work is fabulous. The only I have while crafting is an iced coffee....with the lid firmly on of course!

    ReplyDelete
  59. i dont usually snack while i work (inky, gluey nosh just isnt so appealing to me) but if i would be eating while i work it would probably be something chocolate. if i really need it, chocolate chips help alleviate the sweet munchies cravings

    ReplyDelete
  60. I actually don't snack much when I am stamping. I have gotten myself into some messes with food near my projects. Oops! LOL If I do happen to snack I like my Crystal Light along with dark chocolate. :D Thanks for a chance to win. Love all the samples shown today, too.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Oh I LOVE what the DT did with these new stamps! Can't wait for the release! I tend to snack away from the craft room so I don't spill and swear LOL! ;) But I do have raw cashews and almonds from time to time-no salt or oils to mess up projects.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Wonderful cards!

    I do not snack during stamping as I afraid my hands get dirty and transferred onto the card. However, I do snack after I finished a card and usually would be some potatoes crisp!

    ReplyDelete
  63. A nice big cup of tea is usually on my desk... and anything chocolate that doesn't get my hands messy. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  64. I would love to eat popcorn but not while I am stamping . So really it is just a water bottle or coffee.

I love hearing from you!!
