FIRST LOOK: HUSTLE

I've got the super fun Hustle set as today's First Look. We love this set because the sentiments, once again, takes the center stage. There are so many CAS stampers now, or just stampers who just don't have a lot of time to sit down and craft. Hustle is great because of the larger scaled sentiments that really make a statement on its own!

  • Hustle will be available for purchase July 15th
  • Hustle comes in a 4x6 clear acetate sheet and will retail for $15.00
  • Hustle contains 11 stamps: 8 sentiments and 3 asterisk images. Approximate measurements: Go on with your bad self sentiment: 2" x 3/4"; Good things happen to those who hustle sentiment: 1-14/16" x 1-1/4"

My first card... ah, my friends are kind of rowdy. No, not me, just my friends. ;) Just a couple of years ago they were all still hitting the clubs on a weekly basis. I like to think we're all still young at heart even though we're nearly all married, with child, or mamas now.....  Yes, we still talk funny sometimes, especially through emails and text messages, lol, makes me laugh. This set is a fun homage to real talk, the kind of talk you talk with your closest friends. Because you know what, we're all silly and funny, and that's a-okay! 

I used Trifecta for the triangle border and the two sentiments are both from Hustle. I stamped the go on with your bad self sentiment on the teal cardstock, cut it out and then colored in the line with a white gel pen. Makes it pop. I like. 


So, 2 of my best friends are preggie... I plan to send this card to one of them. Totally appropriate, haha! 

On the flip side, here's a card featuring the softer side of Hustle. This is one of the sweeter sentiments in this set. I used the lightest variants of Copic markers to color in the banner to achieve the rainbow look. Don't worry if the lines are hard at first, nothing a Copic blender won't blend! :)


That's it! I love this set and hope you will too! :)
