May Sneak Peeks Week Day 3

Welcome to Day 3 of CAS-ual Fridays Stamps
May
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 a whole lot of spunkiness. 

This set was inspired by 2 things:
1. I adore the pillows on Walden's couch from the tv show, 2 and 1/2 men.
Everytime I see them, I think hmm...if those were stamps, they could be a LOT of fun!
2. I had a hilarious conversation with Ellen Hutson while we were at dinner earlier this year.
We were laughing about funny words and decided we needed a stamp that said bleep.
The way her eyes lit up about it, I knew I had to do it.
My wheels were spinning for some time over how to make it work,
 and still maintain my PG rating.
*grin*

What do you think?
I purposely didn't add any comments because I think their cards are all so awesome,
and such a riot that they stand on their own :)

OK, who wants to win a prize??

***All you have to do is leave a comment right here on this post 
answering this question for your chance to win a free stamp set:
To submit or not to submit, that is the question.
Do you chase the pub calls, or do you create strictly for fun?
We'll be back tomorrow for our last day of sneak peeks
with not 1 but 2 sets for your oohing and aahing delight!
Same time, same place, see you then!!

  10. I just want to have fun!!I create because I "need" to. Your new set would certainly meet that need.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I do, I do! I do want to win this set!! It looks like lot of fun. I am a programmer and I am all too familiar with these phases!! As for submitting or not, I don't chase down pub call; but if I happen to make a card I am proud of and it fits the theme I'll submit.

  12. I create for fun only. Cute set.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Ah great idea of the keys as stamps. adorable cards. From the above comments i understood that the question pub calls may be about challenges, so i say that yeah i sometimes try to participate because then only we will understand our capability of experimenting new things.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I really like this set - and the cards are just fabulous! As for pub calls - I haven't submitted to any magazines (yet), but I do like to play along with online challenges and earn the right to display the badges on my blog! Still working on a few of them ;)))) But I think I create cards because it's fun!

    ReplyDelete
  15. What an amazing set! Endless possibilities! I create for both pub calls and challenges, as well as for fun!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I create mostly for fun, but every so often I'll submit cards for possible publication. It's all good! This stamp set is fabulous and the DT's cards are just brilliant! Thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Absolutely love this set!

    I mostly create for fun. I will occasionally look at pub calls to see if anything catches my eye.

    ReplyDelete
  18. What a fun set!!!!!!

    I do a little of both, creating for challenges and some just for me :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. I've never done any challenges...either to submit or just to do them. I'll have to try one soon. I love this set - it is so fun.

    ReplyDelete
  20. This set looks so fun! I mostly create for fun--for my friends and family. I have not chased publication calls, but I have submitted occasionally. I have entered a few contests, but I try not to get stressed over it. I love this hobby and don't want it to become a drudgery.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I just love this set... defintely very creative! I only do it for fun (though sometimes not so much).... haha

    ReplyDelete
  22. How fun! Love what the Team did with these images . I create strictly for fun.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I don't submit to publication calls at all - hubby is a military man and doesn't want my full legal name 'out there' anywhere that could even remotely effect his security clearances (and thus, his job) - one of the reasons I am known as 'Crafty Math Chick' when online, so I create for friends & fun!. Can I just say I LOVE LOVE LOVE this set?!! My hubby is a HUGE techie and doesn't like 'mushy' cards - this set is PERFECT for him! And the CAS-ual Friday wishlist grows and grows...

    ReplyDelete
  24. I create for fun and sharing! I love the smile on the receiver's face when they receive my handmade card!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I create for mere fun, I do try to participate in challenges to improve my skills. Thanks for the chance! Love the samples today.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Mainly for fun but if the card matches the publication call criteria I would submit it for the call!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I create for fun. I had to read through the other comments because I didn't know what a "pub call" was :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Fun cards today- wildly different set of stamps! Looking forward to seeing all of this one together. I haven't submitted for publishing yet. I've been wanting to but usually I just make cards that need to be given away immediately or are made for an online challenge.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Love all these awesomely fun and cute cards!! I create strictly for the fun and joy of creating - I love the great things it does for me emotionally to be able to create beautiful things!!!

    ReplyDelete
  30. This must be the cleverest stamp set ever! I don't chase pub calls but love entering blog challenges.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I found that I was so obsessed with chasing challenge deadlines, DT calls, special challenges that it was taking all the fun out of creating. I now craft because I want to and enter challenges only if something really grabs my attention. However, I do have two, maybe three fav challenges that I like to take part in...when my time permits.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh my goodness, this set is awesome! I am so going to have to get this for cards for my programming DH. The DT cards are just priceless.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I generally make cards just for fun. I do like to enter a challenge or two but work really hard at keeping the fun in what I do. Thanks for the chance to win a fabulously fun stamp set!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I've submitted a couple of times, but its mostly for fun!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Super cute set and cards! I have not submitted to magazine, but I do enter challenges...which are always fun.

    ReplyDelete
  36. OOh, love these cards. My husband's a techie and would love these. :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Have to have this set...so clever and fun. Awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  38. What a fun set. I've never submitted anything for a publication.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Oh my goodness! These are so fun!!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Awesome new stamps! The DT has really out-done themselves!!!
    I have only submitted for pub once, so I guess I create for FUN...and fun it is!!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I create because I enjoy it. But I do enter into challenges that are a good fit for my style too. Who doesn't love to be proclaimed the winner and get a prize to boot?

    ReplyDelete
  42. LOVE LOVE LOVE this stamp set, Michele!! Totally genius!!! And the DT did an AMAZING job with their samples!!! I do a little bit of everything---pub calls, challenges and creating just for the fun of it!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Lovely cards!
    I mostly create for fun, birthdays, etc., occasionally for pub calls :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. I create for fun, and to make the recipient happy.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Wow...what fun stamping. And the story of me "undo", "undo", "delete".....excellent.

    ReplyDelete
  46. love this new set! I have tried the pub route but after a few rejections I needed to take break and remember the fun of it all

    ReplyDelete
  47. I subscribe to a lot of pub call blogs and have also sent cards to magazines a few times, but the reality is that I never have time to do it or just got discouraged. I end up just making my cards for fun. :D Thanks for a chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  48. This set has taken my NERDY heart away!
    I just make cards for fun!

    ReplyDelete
  49. What a fun set for my co-workers (I work in IT)! Getting published is on my bucket list, but so far I haven't gone out of my way to pursue it. Mostly I keep it fun by just stamping for pleasure.

    ReplyDelete
  50. This is so fun! I am loving the sentiments! Yes, I am a chaser. I love the idea of seeing my work in print, and getting paid to craft. So I submit for calls....to me it's like challenges, and I figure my earnings help me do the 'for me' projects too. (Not that there's a ton of earnings).

    ReplyDelete
  51. What a super fun assortment of cards! Love the sentiments! I've only sent in a couple of cards for publication. I'm not really drawn to the calls I seem to prefer the online challenges better.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Super fun set. I create for fun, to satisfy myself. Friends and family are sweetly happy to receive handmade cards.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Love the cards!!! I can't wait to see all the new sets!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Forgot the question AGAIN! I mainly make my cards for fun, but have recently started to do online challenges!

    ReplyDelete
  55. What a fabulous idea for a set! This is a must have!

    ReplyDelete
  56. What a great and original set! I do challenges, but not publication calls, but always for a purpose like a birthday! Thanks for the opportunity!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I have only submitted one card, but didn't get picked. I make them for fun.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Oh Em Gee!!! I can't wait to get my hands on this set! I love it! I create for fun and for some extra play money (I sell my cards to friends and family).

    ReplyDelete
  59. love the tech stamp a lot because I am a geek. I do love to create for pub calls because it really stretch my creativity.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Love all these... They are so neat. I create for fun.... But I do love to create for challenges and crops. Gets your brain a flowing and sometimes you learn what you are good at and never would have know if you didnt try. Awesome feeling.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I started out creating for fun, then got obsessed by the challenges. Now I think I'm reaching a happy medium. These stamps are really cute.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I love this set! It's so clever!!! As for creating, I do it mainly for fun and sometimes, I let a challenge blog inspire me to create a certain type of card. I don't chase the publicity stuff, though (unless you count some DTs that I'd LOVE to be on!).

    ReplyDelete
  63. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!! This set is amazing. Love it. Totally. For reals. Just sayin'.

    ReplyDelete
  64. What a cute set! I create strictly for fun!!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Oh yes, I am having fun! This set is great!

    I've started submitting more of late, not sure why but got a boost of confidence to try! :)

    ReplyDelete
  66. This is so much fun! I love all the DT cards and that they are all so different

    ReplyDelete
  67. Totally COOL set! The DT cards are super cool!
    I submit for publications ... it's fun, and when you get the email it's simply amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  68. All creations are for fun, if there is a pub call that interests me or I really want I go for it. This set is really fun especially for a geeky computer science teacher like,. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  69. Such a cool set ... fab showcase cards! I create for fun ... and do challenges for the same reason! Anita :)

    ReplyDelete
  70. I create for fun only. I have never been interested in being published. However, I do enjoy being inspired by a challenge, and then seeing how everyone else is inspired by that same challenge.

    ReplyDelete
  71. I LOVE this set! My answer: I create for fun mostly. I can't get my head around working on holidays 6 months out.

    ReplyDelete
  72. That set is awesome! So are all the cards. As for creating I do a little of both. Mostly for fun though.

    ReplyDelete
  73. This looks like a really fun stamp set. I love those pillow on 2 1/2 men too! I don't create for publication calls, but I am a self-proclaimed challenge junkie. But that's fun for me!

    ReplyDelete
  74. Oh this set is SO fun!!! LOVE. I create for fun but I may submit for publication - one day!

    ReplyDelete
  75. For now I create purely for fun, and for OWH. I love your clever, brilliant stamps! You're really on top of your creative game with stamps like no one else even dreams of!

    ReplyDelete
  76. Well, I have never tried to publish my cards, but I love to take part in challenges! Perhaps one day I'll submit for publication. So for now its FUN pure!

    ReplyDelete
  77. i create just for fun. never tried to get published. This set is too cute!

    ReplyDelete
  78. These are adorable! I've submitted on occasion, but usually I'm just creating, or working on blog challenges.

    ReplyDelete
  79. I have only really submit to Paper Crafts.. but do not always enter.. I just love to make cards for fun and give them away.. Love the new release.. the DT totally rocks..

    ReplyDelete
  80. I create for fun, but have thought about submitting.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Now that is one thinking-outside-the-box idea for a stamp set! Great cards ladies. As for submission calls, I've been bit recently. Nothing like success to make you want more ;)

    ReplyDelete
  82. Pub calls are good for 'training' my creativity to kick in but I like to have fun. I like playing CAS challenges because it challenges me to think big but create sparingly. I like CAS BECAUSE it's PG but thinks 'R'. Hee hee. AND because I might stand a better chance of winning here than the %&*^*(%&^ lottery.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Genius...i love this set. It is so with the times! The cute little keys allow for so much creativity! I do not try to make cards for publishing calls but I do use the challenges to help me create currently needed cards.

    ReplyDelete
