Dreidel


I have a little dreidel, I made it out of clay. And when it's dry and ready, then dreidel I shall play!


Woo hoo! It's release week at CAS-ual Fridays Stamps! Michele has done it once again and designed a plethora of fabulous stamps for the holidays and beyond that are just flat out amazing. Today I'm featuring a fun Hanukkah set called "8 Happy Nights."

I started by stamping the dreidel and star in their respective ink colors onto a trimmed piece of white cardstock. Then I sprayed the panel with some pearl mist, and flicked some blue and gold color back onto the design with a saturated, inked water brush. I then mounted the image panel to strips of gold cardstock and then mounted that to a white card base that had been stamped with one of the sentiment strips included in the set. To finish the card, I added the sentiment in gold as well.

I hope you enjoy the sneaks, and remember, you can find more about this set on the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Blog and even find out how you can win one! CAS-ual Fridays Stamps also has a Flickr Group now too, have you checked out the great designs featuring CAS-ual Fridays Stampsthere yet?
