CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Sneak Peek

Did that grab your attention?  Well, that's the name of the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps set I'm sneak peek-ing tonight as we kick off the week long reveal party!  And the stamps are equally as attention-grabbing as the name.  I've loved showing my (non-paper-crafting, of course) friends and family this set and watching their reactions.  Michele is such a clever designer!  She included so many usable phrases to fit the WTF acronym.  I used the set to create this paper yummy:

I love all things Halloween, so I made this card using Halloween colors.  Not only are the "WTF?" and "where's the fun" stamps part of this set, but see those cool linear dots repeated behind the "WTF?"?  That's another stamp in this super fun set!  I just turned it on the diagonal and stamped it in ink colors that matched my patterned papers.  LOVE THAT!!!  Here's a close-up of the sentiment:

I added some machine stitching to the left of the heat-embossed "where's the fun?".  I also added some Black Diamond Stickles to the strips of black cardstock at the top and bottom of the patterned papers.  Here's a close-up:

And here's another view of the card:

I'm so excited to be sharing this sneaky peek with everybody.  This has been such a difficult secret to keep because these stamps are so fun and original, and I know that cardmakers everywhere are going to love them so hard!  Here's a little info about CAS-ual Fridays Stamps, the week-long release party, and how YOU can win these fantastic new stamps:
