CAS-ual Fridays challenge #215

No automatic alt text available.

Hello and happy Friday!  I am sad to say that today is our last challenge!!  I have enjoyed my time  so much on the Challenge design team and will miss it very much as well as my fellow Inspiration teamies. A big thanks to Michele and Alanna for having faith in me when I was a newbie to  blogging. 
  You haven't seen the end of me yet though!!  Stay tuned!

Anyway on to our final challenge which is Dry Embossing.  Since CAS-ual Fridays don't have any embossing folders, I pulled out my Stars Fri-dies and ran them through the big shot with an embossing mat.  I must say I have never used my dies for embossing and I think I will be doing it more often.  The possibilities are endless!  I heat embossed the sentiment from the Merry stamp set with silver embossing powder and die cut some of the stars from silver glitter paper.  


If you would like the chance to win a US$25 gift voucher from the CAS-ual Fridays shop, all you have to do is make a card using dry embossing and link it up over HERE.  If you use CAS-ual Fridays products as the main focus of your card, Michele will double the prize to US$50.
We would love you to join us for our last challenge!

Thanks for looking and Merry Christmas!

Penny Black Flowers

Hello and happy Saturday!  My card today is for the latest challenge over at The Flower Challenge where this month it is "use an older stamp or die".  I have used the Demure stamp set from Penny Black.  I have had this stamp for a few years and only used it a couple of times!  I stamped it with CP Midnight ink and coloured it in with a  Crimson Kaszazz Alcohol marker.  I used Prisma coloured pencils for the shading.  The sentiment is from Label Love from Altenew and I adhered it onto my card panel with foam tape.  I think I will use this stamp set more often as it came together very quickly!

I am also entering this card into the Muse challenge where they have a "free for all" challenge.
Anita is the Muse with a beautiful feminine card so I thought my floral card fitted in!

Here's my card.

CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #214

Image may contain: text

Hello and happy Friday!  This week at CAS-ual Fridays challenge blog we have an inspiration photo for you.  I took inspiration from the Christmas ornament and pulled out my Ornament Tag Fri-Die and the Mistletoe & Holly stamp set.  I stamped the mistletoe and gold heat embossed it.  I coloured it in with Altenew Artist markers, ran a glue pen around the edge of the die cut and sprinkled it with gold glitter. Click HERE to take you over to the challenge blog and see how the other DT members were inspired.


If you would like the chance to win a US$25 certificate to spend in the CAS-ual Fridays shop, all you have to do is make a card using the photo as inspiration and link it up to the challenge here.  You don't have to use CAS-ual Fridays stamps but if you do use them as your main focus, Michele will double the prize to US$50.

Thanks for looking and good luck!

Less is More Challenge #385

Hello and happy Sunday!  My card today is for the latest challenge over at Less is More where the theme is OLC Holiday.  I actually love a one layer card but I have to be careful not to make any mistakes because you cant cover them up with an embellishment!  I've used two very old stamp sets for my card today.  I stamped the tree with Kaleidacolor Caribbean Sea ink and added some diamond glitter to it using a quickie glue pen.  I also added some glitter along the bottom of the trees.   The sentiment is an old wooden stamp from Stampin Up Teeny Tiny Sentiments and I stamped that in CP Midnight ink along the side of the tree.  This card came together very quickly, I think I will make a few more in different colour combinations.  A pink one would look good!!
