CAS-ual Fridays Stamps New Release-Just Breathe!


It's Day 6 of the CAS-ual Fridays New Release Inspiration!  Today we're showing off the new Just Breathe Fri-Dies.  You can get all of the new products in the shop now!  Here's how I was inspired:

You don't know how excited I got when I saw this die set!  A couple years ago I chose Breathe as my word and I searched high and low for a die... I found some stamp sets and I even bought a couple... but I really wanted a die... and when I saw this one, it was perfect!

I decided I needed to do something special with this one... something for me that I could hang in my room and just stop and remind myself every once in a while.  So I pulled out a mini canvas and pulled out some paints and gold texture paste and went to work!


I started by painting my canvas with some metallic acrylic paint in a deep but bright blue.  While it was still wet, I swiped in a little bit of Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine... I was splattering it on something else and rather than just letting the extra run down the sink, I decided to use it here.

While it was drying, I cut the Just Breath from some brushed gold foil cardstock and then 3 times from some turquoise cardstock to stack them.  I wanted them to be really durable and like chipboard.


Once the painted base was dry, I pulled out the new Starlequin Stencil and used it to apply some gold texture past to my canvas in both corners.  While that was drying I pulled out some goodies... a nylon flower that I received in a package of goodies from Yvonne Yam some time ago... that wonderful old key that I received in a package of goodies from the oh so talented Mitralee... 


A flower I crocheted from some gold yarn with a button I picked up at a second hand store.. some paper flowers, gold bling gems, a whole bunch of my favorite things..I attached them all with some liquid glass.  And then my favorite goodie of all... as good as these Just Breathe dies...


Another treasure from my box of goodies from Mitra...this dangly jewel... I used the tails from the crocheted flower to tie it on and I left the tails on purpose because I like them!


I'm going to enjoy seeing this in my room... now to decide where to hang it....

I'm playing along at Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge which is Anything Goes this week!  I'm also playing along with the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge which is Play With Paint!  I'm also playing along at the Outlawz Twisted Thursday with Favorite Product or Technique.  I have so many favorites on here, but one of my very favorite products is a great Word Die.. and my favorite technique with them is to cut multiples and stack them for a 3D look.  And even better when I can attach them so they are suspended, like on this little canvas!

Thank you for stopping today and I hop you enjoyed it!  Be sure to hop on over to the CAS-ual Fridays Blog and see what everyone has created for you and find out how you could win some of the new products!  Should you decide to shop, I have this for you:


We've got one more day of inspiration for you tomorrow!  Come back!
