CAS-ual Fridays Stamps New Release (Day 1)

 Hello friends! It brings me great pleasure to share my CAS-ual Fridays Stamps new release cards with you. Today is Day 1. Warning: this is a photo-heavy post.

We are featuring two stamp sets (Lovely, Lovely Greeting) and one Fri-Die (Lovely Links). I made two cards with these sets. 
The stamps are super fun to play with. Notice the colorful borders? I had fun inking them up one color at a time with MISTI! I added a strip of black and white pattern paper. The white embossed sentiment is tres chic, don't you think?

 My 2nd card was created with some stamping and heavy gold-embossing of the links! I think I embossed it ...like 4-5 times!
thinking about You
Don't you just love the sentiment!? I know I do!

My 3rd card (my favorite!)....I think you can tell that I love love love these Fri-Dies ( Lovely Links). 
thanks so much
It looks like I spent a ton of time making it, but I really didn't! I happened to have this pattern paper and matched it up with the Lovely Links. The hand-stitching on the sentiment did take some time, but other than that, it was super quick and easy! I couldn't help myself by adding some colorful sequins...As you can tell, I just love colors and am all about FUN!

Please note that there will be 1 random winner from one of the sneak peek days to win a $25 gift certificate to the store. All the stamps and dies will be released on May 1st
I strongly encourage you to check out CAS-ual Fridays Stamp (see here) and find out what my DT mates did with these awesome new products.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

I really like the use of borders to create chain letters. Great idea.
