Yesterday I confessed my love for the Frankly CAS-ual Fridays Stamps set. Today, I'm going to make another confession, this time about Brickworks. Complete and total love affair (sorry, Frank).
It's got solid bricks, outline bricks, zig zag bricks, dad's sentiments and grad's sentiments. A total go-to set. Let's see some cards ...
When I thought about bricks, the first thing that came to mind is Pink Floyd's iconic cover for The Wall. A quick search on www.dafont.com comes up with a free Floydian font, which I use for this card ...
Stamping the outline bricks over the computer-generated sentiment is all it takes to finish this simple, but effective card. If I could, I'd send it to my good friend from Jr. High who introduced me to Pink Floyd (RIP Suzy!!)
Here's a card with a traditional, filled-brick stamping, although the brickwork is interrupted to make room for the gold sentiment. The school colors on this graduation card are repeated in the collegiate banners (tiny flowers from Bold Wishes).
Finally, here's another Graduation card. The watercolor splotches are less structured, in contrast to the tidy bricks. The sentiments on the banner and on the card are separated for more flexibility in your stamping. I threaded ribbon loosely through holes on the end of the banner. There are sequins here, but I resisted putting them directly on the card base. Instead, they are threaded on the end of the ribbon along with a crystal bead.
Really have just scratched the surface with this set. Stay tuned for two more posts before the final reveal at CAS-ual Fridays Stamps on Friday!
Thanks for looking!
