Frankly

 YAY, it's release week for CAS-ual Fridays Stamps! And this month there are not three, not four, but FIVE fabulous new sets released! I am seriously in love with them. Here are some cards from Frankly.


This set has a great flourish stamp that can be used on its own, or stamped in a pattern. Here's what the stamp looks like on its own. The rest of the cards feature this flourish stamped in a pattern.


 Here's what the flourish looks like stamped overlapping and facing each other. Lined up across the card they have an Art Deco pattern feel, I think. The silver sentiment is one of the secondary sentiments. Looks great on its own (even without the main "Frankly My Dear.") 


Here's another version. This time the double-stamped flourish is also rotated to create a one-layer flower. Two colors are used on this one. You know I'm a sucker for details ... I love how the center of the flower is the perfect size to emphasize the word "thank" in the sentiment.

More angles. I'm loving angles.


One more card. I couldn't put this stamp down! This time I stamped a bunch of the flourishes facing each other in a row (which actually inspired the second card in pink), cut them out, and made them into a 3D flower. The gold sentiment is another secondary sentiment. There are just so many great sentiments in this set.

I'll be back Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday with more sneaks. The final reveal on the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps blog will be on Friday!

Thanks so much for looking!

  17. Guess how many times I had to go back and look to see how you stamped the first card? I don't even want to tell you, but it's a fantastic way to print it.
