CAS-ual Fridays: Sassy Smiles and the Whole Shebang

Day #2 of the CAS-ual Fridays release party shows off the Sassy Smiles and Whole Shebang stamp sets, as well as the Fun Fetti Fri-Dies. Just like yesterday's Lovely Greetings set, these two stamp sets are heavy on fun sentiments with wonderful fonts. Let's take a closer look!

You really can't get much simpler than this! Pick your two favorite colors, and add the secondary sentiment in black. How EASY to make a set of these one layer wonders to give away?! It doesn't always have to be complicated, right?! That's the best thing about large-scale sentiments, they fill up the space quickly. These simpler cards are good for teen boys too. They can do without the frills : )

OK, back to the frills! Check out the font on this large sentiment from Sassy Smiles! Love it! The heart cluster flowers are cut out and joined with sequins, more negative heart pieces from yesterday's Lovely Links Fri-Dies, and a gold thread double bow.

I am such a huge fan of secondary sentiments, and think they work great as an additional design element, or inside the card itself. In this case, the secondary sentiment is embossed in gold on the vellum. It's not super-easy to read, but being secondary, it doesn't have to jump out at you. I think it's fun to have things that the recipient find after they initially pull it out of the envelope. If you don't read it right away it doesn't detract from the card at all.

Stay tuned for more fun sets, including a wonderful floral set. Don't forget to check out the other Ink Squad girls:

Thanks for looking!
