CAS-ual Fridays Stamp April Release-Day 1!

 
Hello! This is going to be an exciting week over Cas-ual Fridays Stamps! We are having 3 sets of new release--yay!
This new set called STOP is super fun!
STOP #2
I used a emerald green card stock to create a chalk board effect! I embossed the images in various colors and kept the design fairly simple. Not sure about you, I did have a lot of green chalkboard when I was growing up...

My 2nd card was stamped in various colors. I did use the "stop sign"  for the sentiment in this card!
STOP #1
What do you think? Please go check out here to see the beautiful examples from my DT mates!
Happy Monday :)

Great cards. Yep, lots of green chalkboards in my childhood, and cleaning erasers! Love this effect on the card. Love the little detail of the twine in the pattern, too.

Oh yes, lots of green chalkboards! And chalk dust. I never volunteered to clean the erasers though ... that was nasty! Love your trendy cards with the chalkboards and sequins! Such fun designs : )

Both are great Virginia! My favourite it the second one - it really feels like the Stop sign is 'bouncing' off a floor and the outlines are like the movement trails, very clever!
