CFS Release - Joy

Hi Folks! This is my favorite set of the release. Love the two large sentiments in the new CASual Fridays Stamps Joy set, and today I've got a card featuring each of them!

The middle of each Christmas-y word has a large snowflake substituted for the "o" to make it look even more festive. On this card I further embellished the snowflake with a large, faceted brad for some extra sparkle.

Because this sentiment is fabulous enough, I didn't want to add too much else to take away from it. I settled on adding a tone-on-tone border behind the slightly smaller panel so it would look like it's on a sheet of lacy cardstock. The die from Lovely Links was cut in half and adhered to the card base.

The extra texture is just enough, but not distracting. I also decided to add "to the world" from Snowy Sayings and cut it so that it would hug the curve of the "y."

Here's the other snowy word in this set ... Noel. It's embossed in a copper on top of a cream cardstock.

The curve on the end of the "N" looked like a wonderful place to hang an ornament, so I did! I stamped the snowflake a second time on silver paper, punched it out, added a hole in the circle and two on either side of the N curve, and then tied the ornament to the card.

The edge of the card is stamped with several of the extra snowflakes from this set and embossed in glitter from Catherine Pooler. A little hard to see here, because it's all sparkle, but you can see them better in the prior photo.

 Check out the rest of the Ink Squad to see more awesome projects with these stamps. All the stamps you see this week will be released on Saturday, October 21st. And don't forget, the code KELLY2017 works on everything, including these new release items.

Thanks for looking! We've got one last set to show you tomorrow, and then the stamps will all be released!


  1. Your incredible lacy border is so wonderful, Kelly... but you had me at Noel! OH do I love the copper!

  2. These are both just as pretty as they can be!

  3. These will be on their way to me shortly. I love what you've done with them, Kelly. The borders on both cards add just the right amount of texture and depth.

  4. LOVE that Joy card! That flourish/medallion is gorgeous and love the bling inside, perfectly CAS!


I absolutely love reading comments. Thanks so much for stopping by and taking the time to leave one! - Kelly
