CAS-ual Fridays: Another new FRI-DIE

In case you missed it, CAS-ual Fridays Stamps is now offering DIES!


Yesterday I showed some cards with the Loving Bloom Flower Die, and today I have a card using the Bubble Labels Die!


These dies also work well for clouds!

I used the large and small die to emboss the outline (this can be done by changing your sandwich on the die cutter). Then cut the dies out of printer paper to use as a mask to sponge the sky around. If the panel wasn't popped up, this would be a nice, one-layer card.

The tree trunks are from Calm & Gentle, while the "leaves" are from Truth Is. Sentiment is Wonderful Words. 

Stay tuned for tomorrow when the third die set is announced! Thanks so much for looking.

 PS. If you haven't heard, my blogging friend Jackie Rockwell is hosting several challenges as she works her way through the Pantone Fashion Colors for Spring 2013. Aside from some wonderful inspiration, you'll also get the chance to win a FREE blog makeover. How cool is that? Something to consider as you're designing cards for other challenges too.

  12. my first though was; that is a new cloud die I haven't seen, looks pretty cool. Then I read your post, love how you think outside the box and come up with creative things like this! It almost looks like the clouds were cut out. I agree, this technique is great for one layer cards.
    Love the stamped "trees", simply delightful!
