CFS Release - Heartfelt Sayings, Special Delivery

Another release is coming your way, this time from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps! We have a whole week to showcase 8 new sets. Today's Special Delivery stamp set is related to the Happy Mail set that was released a few years ago. It features this floral mailbox that is just bursting with happy mail. The font of the sentiments in this set is adorable, with tiny hearts nesting in some of the letters.
For the love note envelopes bursting out of the mailbox, I ended up blending ink on a scrap piece of paper, stamping the envelopes, and then cutting them out myself. Since each envelope is just a rectangle, it was easier for me to make four cuts with my scissors, than to mask/stamp/color the envelopes directly onto the card. Plus, having the envelopes fussy cut allowed me to stick one of them inside the mailbox (tucking it into a cut I made on the mailbox with an exacto blade).

The flag on the mailbox actually works, too! I stamped and fussy cut the flag out separately, and then attached it to the mailbox with a brad. This allows the flag to pivot back and forth, just like it would operate in real life. So fun!
Check out the rest of the Ink Squad to see more awesome projects with these stamps, and be sure to come back for the next three days to see the other newly released stamp sets. They will all be available for purchase at CAS-ual Fridays Stamps on Saturday!
Thanks for looking!
