Today is the last day of CAS-ual Friday Stamps sneak peek sets. The last new set featured is called Countdown. A special thanks to Michele Gross for letting me play along. I had a blast designing with those fun new stamps!!!

I created this card on Sunday for the Featured Stamper Challenge on Splitcoaststampers. I picked this card to case. Obviously I didn’t read the description, because only after being done with my card I saw that the featured stamper didn’t create this card, but received it through a swap. Oh well… I love the wavy line of the  snowflakes and wanted to re-create that with the acrylic stamps. I love that about clear stamps.

I lined up the strip with the ovals on my acrylic block first, then added the countdown strip underneath. Both were inked with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and stamped on a 3″ x 5″ piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock. Next I filled in the ovals with the solid oval stamp and Sea Breeze VersaMagic ink and the striped ones with Aquatic Splash Versamagic.  The upper left and lower right corner were rounded and layered on a piece of black cardstock, that was 1/8″ bigger.

The card base is a 7″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Patina Bazzill Cardstock, folded in half. Again the corners were rounded  and little adhesive silver pearls were added. A sentiment from the strip was stamped on a 1/2″ wide strip of white cardstock. The left side was cut and a button was tied on with silver cord on the right. The sentiment was adhered to the lower right side with foam adhesive squares.

Make sure you check the CAS-ual Fridays Stamp blog to see more samples created with the new set.  Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!

Hugs and smiles
