CAS-ual Fridays July Release Day 6
We've made it to the final day of the CAS-ual Fridays Holiday Release, and you know what that means, the products will be available in the store tonight at midnight EST! I know you're anxious to get your hands on these amazing holiday stamps and dies and start planning your holiday cards! Today we have 2 Hanukkah stamp sets to show you, Star of David and Spin the Dreidel!
I combined the 2 stamp sets for my card today. To "color" the dreidels I took one of the stamps and trimmed it down to the shape you see (the stamps have extra border around them but this particular stamp is very very easy to trim because of all the straight lines). I stamped the outlines first using black ink, then I used the solid back of the trimmed stamp to add color. I happen to love this technique because it makes coloring stamped images very quick and easy and you can achieve a watercolor look if you lightly spray the inked solid stamp with a fine mist of water before stamping. That's what I did her, using distress inks (Salty Ocean, Candied Apple, Mowed Lawn, and Spiced Marmalade). I added a little bit of Salty Ocean ink splatter to my card too. I stamped the sentiment in black, and placed the panel on a sparkly blue card base. I love the festive feel the sparkle adds to the card!
