I just jumped right to it, didn’t I????? No leading up to the fun announcement. Just BAM! Here it is! Well!!! HERE IT IS! I am thrilled to tell you all that I have joined the CAS-ual Friday Stamps design team! I’m a Girl Friday! 🙂 You can see her blog post about it by clicking here! I won’t be officially starting until after I get moved and settled (we are moving out of state next month) but we don’t like secrets so couldn’t wait to spill the beans!
A little about CAS-ual Fridays if you are new to the line! They carry the highest quality (made in the USA) photopolymer clear stamps and dies! The line has a variety of themes and backgrounds and sentiments! I encourage you to check out the store! The best news is anytime you use my code LAUREL2016 at checkout, you will save 15% on your order!! Yup, that’s how Michelle rolls! I will put this badge on my blog sidebar so it will always be there for easy referencing if you order from the shop. 15% off just every time you use the code LAUREL2016! How awesome is that! The code does not expire and you can use it as many times as you want. And the shipping? Pretty awesome pricing.
I made a trio of cards a few mornings ago with the Butterbows stamp set. Those butterflies! Swoon! I stamped the butterflies with the Brutus Monroe Gradient ink pads twice to create an ombre circle of butterflies. I wanted to film a video showcasing these cards, but my AC went out upstairs and its like a sauna up there! I will shoot a remake as soon as my AC gets fixed because I really want to you see this amazing stamp set (those butterflies are delicious) paired with these super cool gradient ink pads. They are unique and you get a perfectly blended gradient impression every time.
The sentiments are from the same stamp set. I stamped them with Versamark ink and then heat set them with the Brutus Monroe Sterling embossing powder. Let’s look at a few close ups of each card.
This first card uses a gradient ink pad that isn’t available for purchase at this moment. I’m not sure why. Will look into it.
That’s it for now!!! I’ll be back here on the blog on the 16th for a super fun blog hop using some new stamps from The Ton! I’ll see you then.
