CAS-ual Fridays New Release Peeks Day 3 - Thanks

Big thanks for stopping by today! CAS-ual Fridays is sharing peeks of the newest release all week long! We've got lots of beautiful things to share - 5 New stamp sets and some new dies too. Today we're showing a new stamp set called "Thanks" and a matching "Thanks" word die. Michele is sharing projects from all the design team members and offering a $15 gift certificate all 5 days - so make sure you stop by her blog to enter to win.
The new "Thanks" Stamp set has lots of  sentiments in different fonts that you can stack  like I did here, or use on their own. 

I made a simple watercolor wash background with oranges and yellows and stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black Ink.  Watercolor paper is usually hard to stamp on because it's not smooth.  I used my Misti and stamped the image several times to get a clean dark impression. 

For my second card I thought I'd do something layered and fussy - to show how beautiful the images are no matter what your style. 

I stamped both sentiments on pattern paper.  One is raised with adhesive foam tape, and the "so much" is left flat on the base of the card. 
Instead of sequins I sprinkled on some die cut confetti .  The Fun Fetti  Fri die is perfect for this.  You'll find little hearts, stars, circles and flowers on this die - and guess what?  It's on sale!   The bit of blue punched scallop at the top left is the bottom of a Scallop Tag.

Ready to see more projects with this new die set? Here's a list of designers with projects to share today!
