CAS-ual Fridays Sneak Peek: Calm & Gentle

Well hello there!  Today is a day I've been waiting for a while now!  Time to show off the gorgeous stamps from CAS-ual Fridays!  I hope you've been staying up to speed on all the new stamps being released (pop on over here if you haven't) and that you're playing along with the challenge for another chance to win! Today, I get to share with you the new stamp set, Calm & Gentle. Michele knew what she was going when she picked me for this stamp set!  It is right up my alley with gorgeous sentiments and a beautiful tree image.  I had lots of fun inking up these stamps!

For my first card, I pieced together four pieces of cardstock to create a gradient feel to the card, stamped the tree in white and embossed it.  Finished it off with a sentiment banner and a sweet little button.  I love how the white pops off the color.  This could easily be a Christmas card too with a different sentiment.

This next card shows off the versatility of the set...from a cool, winter feel, right to fall we go.  I love that the branches and the leave stamps are separate providing versatility to the set...and you know how I love sentiments!  I had fun repeating the "I miss you." sentiment.   This card already is in the mail to my nana!



It's October so it is the perfect timeto make a card for Breast Cancer Awareness.  This card has the perfect images and sentiments to do just that! 

Thanks for stopping by and looking at the sneak peeks!  These are such exciting times at CAS-ual Fridays!  Today is the last day of our sneak peeks and what an awesome week it has been!  I love how well these stamps are inking and the fabulous variety of sentiments and fonts.
