CAS-ual Fridays: Just Lovely!


It's release time for CAS-ual Fridays! That means it's time to settle in for four days of fun new stamp sets and Fri-dies!  

Today we're debuting Lovely, Lovely Greetings and Lovely Links ... a collection of FANTASTIC sentiments (seriously, these are becoming my go-to, space-filling sentiments) and strips of fab heart clusters.

This card uses a cluster of Lovely Links as a tone-on-tone background panel. Really love how it fills the space but doesn't take your attention from the main panel. Stay tuned for details on the floral image. On the sentiment, you might think it's the main sentiment of the Lovely Greeting set, but no, there are FIVE more that are just as sweet. A must-have set, for sure.

Here's another one of the sentiments. See what I mean? Exactly what you'd want to tell someone! I used a portion of the Lovely Links Fri-die to layer behind the main panel, as well as some bits of lace. I like having just a portion of things peeking out. No need to show off the whole element all the time!

Of course, those links come in stamp form as well. Here is quite possibly the easiest thank you card ever. Stamp a few random rows, stamp one of the included sentiments, and get ready to make a bunch more now that your supplies are all out!

Stamp a few more rows and you have your own personally created background. The negatives from the heart cluster Fri-die make great coordinating accents.

Well that's it for the first day! You're not going to want to miss checking out the other Ink Squad girls throughout this week:

Thanks for looking!

  5. Gorgeous cards! I love the Lovely Links dies on your first two cards and the pretty color combo with the stamps on the 3rd card! Awesome designs!

  6. I'm loving that stamp set, Kelly. You sure know how to show them off.

  7. These are great! I'm really loving those die cuts, so many possibilities for them, and they can me modern or more traditional.

  8. They are all so WONDERFUL! My favorite has to be the white die cut background with the simple flower & Thoughts sentiment though!

  9. Beautiful cards Kelly, this first is just amazing!
