CAS-ual Fridays April Release Day 5

Hello!  Thank you for stopping by for the final day of the CAS-ual Fridays April Release!  I hope you've enjoyed seeing all of the new products this week.  Everything will be available for purchase tonight at midnight in the CAS-ual Fridays store!

The final stamp set of the release is called TIN ROOF.  This is the stamp set I used on my day 1 and day 2 cards that I told you I'd show you today.  It's one of my favorite sets of the release!  There's also a new die set called SMILING Fri-Dies which includes 3 word dies, "thanks", "bravo", and "smile".

Rather than using TIN ROOF for a background today I used it to decorate my flowers.  I stamped the smaller pattern flower stamp several times on a piece of watercolor paper using Versa Mark ink and embossed in white, then I used distress inks (Festive Berry, Picked Raspberry, and Orange Marmalade) to watercolor the paper.  After it was dry I used dies from Loving Blooms and Friendly Flowers Fri-Dies to cut my flowers.  The sentiment "you make me" is from PRETTY POSIES.  I cut the word "smile" using SMILING Fri-Dies and added some glossy accents to give my card some shine.  To make the green panel on the bottom I used distress inks (Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron) and my ink blending tool.  I finished my cards with some clear sequins.

Be sure to visit the CAS-ual Fridays blog and leave a comment, there will be a $15.00 prize awarded each day of the release to one random commenter!  The prize winners will be announced tonight at midnight and the new items will be available in the store.  Be sure to use my special code below to get your discount!
