Welcome back to Day 4 of our 
July Release Party!

Today, we switch gears just a bit and bring you some stampy sensations...
Holiday style!
That's right, welcome to CAS-ual Fridays version of 
Christmas in July!!

This first set is fun and playful, and will delight kids from 1 to 92.
Introducing...
 Naughty or Nice

Dana-CFS-Santa
Oh I love how Dana used a negative die cut to frame her gorgeous background.
Love how she left some blank space, and the way she masked for the sentiment.


Naughty or Nice

Kelly has created a fantastical Christmas tree using the Oval Border.
Wow!  I just love this!!

Naughty or Nice (July31)
I love how Virginia has created a fun checklist.
The way she has it "belted" really reminds me of Santa.

Naughty or Nice 1
I love the way Lynn stacked the circle border in fun colors.
Totally makes me think of Christmas lights!

Naughty or Nice 2
Here, she used just a small portion of that same border.
Love the way that looks!
I also really like her fun texty background.

list
Piali found some great designer papers that work so fabulously with these stamps!
I love how she's engineered this card!

santa
And here, her fun colorful tag looks awesome laid over the simply colored background.
Great design!

Naughty or Nice Sneak Peek
Angie has used several stamps from the set to create fun border strips for her gorgeous card!
 I especially love how she used our new Oval Tag Fri-Dies!
Awesome!!

Naughty or Nice - Jingle
Jingle has added color to her circle border! I love the way that looks!
The way she has stacked the sentiments with the border looks stunning,
and her clever inking really makes it pop.

Santa
Karen's card is sooooo fun!
I love her take on the santa suit, and the big bold sentiment at the bottom
looks positively scrumptious.
I want to make a card like this :)

  1. I often have to think to remember to add bling, and when I do, I like to use a flourish of rhinestones. I am starting to use sequins too.
    Great cards here...I especially love Kelly's tree, so very clever to use as an image element and she even applied different colours...wow.

  2. Gemstones or stickles end up on a lot of my cards.

  3. Fun, fun ideas for some 'not your run of the mill 'Christmas cards
    I love glitter! (after a glitter session in the craft room, usually come across some later sticking to the dogs' noses--yes there are also crumbs in the craft room )

  29. Love these fun cards. I'm such an amateur, but I keep reaching for the metallic gel pens to put accents or dots on my stamped images or sentiments. Really simple and fast way to give a card a little oomph.

    ReplyDelete

  34. I am not sure if this qualifies as an embellishment, but I just LOVE my Stardust gel pen. I use it to add shimmer to plain patterned paper or add life to stamped images such as flowers. It is much less messy than glitter. :D Thanks for a chance to win, too.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Loving those cards. My favourite embellishment is glitter or stickles. It adds bling and pizzaz while still being flat to mail and I get to make a big mess while doing it. I know, I never really grew up. But it's such a giggle to send DH to work with glitter on his face because it's rubbed off of me.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Looks like a must-have set, anyway I must have it. All the cards are daaaarling. Oooh, Christmas. Fave embellishment, hmmm, sequins for now. That may change next week.
