CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Release: Day 1

Hi folks! Welcome to another release week for CAS-ual Fridays Stamps! We've got 5 days of sneak peeks before the entire release is available on Saturday. Let's get started!

For this card I wanted the flowers to be backwards, in that the outlines are colored and the flowers filled in with black, instead of colored flowers with black outlines. This is where the sentiment comes in, as I thought the flowers might be ones you'd see in a dream vs. real life. They're all on a watercolor background.

Here's the stamp set they come from, called Pretty Poises (coordinating die also available).

Here's another card with this set. Love the stylized leaves. I think I used them on 3 or 4 cards from this release! These were stamped in a line and then cut out. I was going for the backwards look again, this time with the leaves acting like the stem of a flower. And then the flower head being on the bottom instead of top.

The scripty sentiment is also from this set. The flower and a few leaf halves have been watercolored.

Check out the rest of the Ink Squad to see more awesome projects with these stamps. A little birdie also told us that there are several sets on sale at CAS-ual Fridays, which is even more of a deal if you use the special KELLY2016 code for an additional 15% off.
Thanks for looking, and I'll see you back tomorrow!
