CFS: Wait for it

This last set of CAS-ual Fridays Stamps is perfect for any teen boys or girls that you send cards too. You instantly become twice as cool as you were before using them : ) This first card uses the "awesome" stamp embossed in silver sparkle and then again in blue sparkle. My original intent was to stamp this as a background, but it was a little difficult to read and the contrast was too low. So I decided to cover it up with gold mesh fabric and make it even more difficult to read, almost like it was planned that way!

More doily parts were on my desk, so I used some here too. I attached the small ones with a french knot, and the two larger ones are stitched through the center.

Can you believe there is actually a stamp set that includes "totally stoked"?! Right? How fun and different! I was going to make a card set using this sentiment stamp embossed on colored card bases, and perhaps I still will. But for now, here's a single card that consists of an embossed sentiment and two strips of patterned paper. Quick!

And speaking of fun, I totally giggled when I saw "wait for it" ... so many ways to play around with that one! I used the "dude" and arrow stamps from Rad (which is a perfect companion set to this one) to visually lead up to the "legendary" declaration. Stamping it in triplicate helps emphasize the message and create a focal point on this text-only card.

All three of the stamp sets are available starting tomorrow, March 12th, in the CAS-ual Fridays Store. Check out the store blog and comment on any of the three release posts for a chance to win the entire release! More inspiration waits for you with the rest of the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Design Team and with Deepti, our super-talented guest designer:
