CAS-ual Fridays Rainbows and Butterflies



Hello and happy Friday!  It's time for another fun challenge over at the CAS-ual Fridays challenge blog and this we it is Rainbows and butterflies,  how fun is that!!

I stamped the flower from Mon Ami stamp set and coloured it in rainbow colours with my Prisma Pencils.
I used the coordinating die to cut it out and adhered it to my card panel with foam tape.  The butterflies are from the "Be" stamp set.  I adhered my card panel onto a top folding card base with some more foam tape.








If you would like the chance to win a $25 voucher to the CAS-ual Fridays shop, all you have to do is make a card with rainbows and butterflies and link it up on the challenge blog here.  Michele will double the prize to $50 if you use CAS-ual Fridays stamps as the main focus of your card!  Good luck!


                                    

                                        Thanks for looking and have a great weekend!

Less is More colour challenge #375

Hello and happy Sunday!  It feels like ages since I played along with Less is More so I made time today to make a card for the current Tangerine and Olive colour challenge.  When I finished my card and photographed it I thought maybe it's more red than tangerine but then I realised there are different shades of tangerine so I'm happy with that.  That's my story and I'm sticking to it! LOL

I stamped the flower from CAS-ual Fridays Mon Ami and die cut it with the co-ordinating die.  I coloured it in with some Altenew artists markers.  I must admit I haven't used my Altenew markers very much but they are so beautiful I am going to find more time to play with them.  I stamped the stem and leaves directly onto my card panel and adhered my flower with dimensionals.  I coloured some white cardstock with the same Altenew marker and cut it into two strips and adhered them directly onto a top folding card base.  The card panel was adhered with foam tape.

NEW Craft Stash Blog Hop: DAY 2





No automatic alt text available.


Hello and welcome to my blog and day 2 of our New Craft Stash Blog Hop!  May I say I felt very honoured to be invited to join these very talented designers!!


I received some happy mail on Friday from the lovely Michele of CAS-ual Fridays Stamps.  I have challenged myself to make some quick cards and I thought the Sassy Smiles stamp set would be perfect for these.  There are so many fun sentiments in this set!! (do what makes your guts grin!! LOL)

I placed the SMILE stamp into my MISTI and used three different colours of Catherine Pooler Inks, blending the colours as I went with a blending tool.  I learnt this trick from Catherine!  I stamped the sentiments underneath in Versafine Black Onyx ink, die cut the panel with a stitched frame and used some foam tape to mount onto a top folding card base.  The little hearts are from the same stamp set.

Hows that for some quick cards!











                                         Here's the stamp set I used and the CP Designs ink colours.

CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #203 Heat Embossing


No automatic alt text available.

Hello and happy Friday!  We have a heat embossing challenge over at the CAS-ual Fridays Inspiration Blog this week.
We also welcomed  8 new talented designers to our challenge blog this week so make sure you pop over and check out all the inspiration.

 I never tire of watching the magic of heat embossing.  I white heat embossed the flowers from Pretty Posies onto Bristol card stock,  coloured them with my Zig Brush Markers and die cut them with the matching Posies Fri-Dies. I stamped the sentiment from Shenanigans in Versafine Black Onyx ink and heat embossed with  sparkle embossing powder.








                              




If you would like the chance to win a $25 voucher to the CAS-ual Fridays shop, all you have to do is make a card using heat embossing and link it up on the challenge blog here.  Michele will double the prize to $50 if you use CAS-ual Fridays stamps as the main focus of your card!  Good luck!
