Casual FUN + Blog Hop Winner

It's Thurdsay.  Are you ready for a sneak peek at the new StampNation challenge this week?   There's lots of exciting ground to cover today, so grab your favorite beverage and enjoy.

 First up, an announcement.  The winners were chosen from last week's blog hop and one of the randomly chosen commenters came from my blog!  Can I get a Woot-Woot?!!!

If you are one of the winners be sure to email Catherine at catherine@catherinepooler.com to get your free month of membership started.  See you both in the forums.  :)

Are you ready for more exciting news?  We have two new guest designers joining us in April  Allison Cope of  Your Memories and Amy Kolling of Stamp-n-Paradise.  Both of these ladies have more talent in their fingertips than I can hope to find in my entire body.  I'm excited to see what inspiration they will bring to StampNation.  Be sure to stop by their blogs and leave them some love.

Now for that sneak peek I promised.  It's a super FUN challenge sponsored by CAS-UAL Fridays Stamps, a fun, edgy and trendy stamp company.   The stamp set I used for my challenge card was Woot-Woot!  Totally appropriate for today, don't you think?

You can see the full card on StampNation in the challenge forum. I wanted to show you more from this fabulous sponsor so I made a card just for today using my personal favorite stamp set and die from CAS*UAL Fridays Stamps, Love Notes and Heart Note Die.  

To bring a little bit of the adorable note stamp into the card I clear embossed the space behind the heart. It's subtle, but really tied in the sentiment to the backdrop.  Little sequins from #prettypinkposh above and below my heart note die add just the finishing touch my card needed.

Have you had enough fun for one post?  One more little tidbit for you.

CAS*UAL Fridays is offering up a $25 gift certificate to one participant in this week's challenge at StampNation!!!!   All you have to do is make a fun card and post it to Challenge 123.  What would you get with $25 at CAS*UAL Fridays?
