CAS-ual Fridays Celebration


Hello everyone and welcome to my last post for 2021!

We are celebrating over on the CAS-ual Fridays blog by sharing some celebratory cards to inspire you.
We are also sharing our favorite project of the year.

I've made a celebration card using the Celebrate sentiment from Shenanigans stamp set along with the Jacks stencil.



My favorite project for this year was a hard decision but I settled on this one using the Flowery Background stamp along with the Sweet Friend Die.


Be sure to pop over to the CAS-ual Fridays blog to see all the fun celebration cards from the rest of the Design Team.
Wishing you all a safe and happy 2022 and lets hope this new year is better than the last few!

Merry Christmas!

Hello, I'm over on the CAS-ual Fridays blog today sharing a Christmas card.

I'm sure you have all been nice this year but if you have been naughty, I bet it was fun!
I have made a fun Christmas card using the "Naughty'isms" stamp set and the "Naughty" Dies. 

I started by making a background piece using Alcohol inks.  I die cut the Naughty or Nice sentiment from white card stock and adhered that to the background piece with some liquid glue.
I stamped one of the sentiments from the stamp set onto a strip of white card stock and adhered that directly under the die cut. Then  I stamped and colored a stocking and some presents, die cut them and adhered them with foam squares.  I finished off by adhering the panel to a top folding card base.

I'm also playing along in the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge which is Marsha's Anything Goes.

CAS-ual Fridays stenciling and stamping.

 Hello,  I'm over on the CAS-ual Fridays blog today sharing a couple of fun stenciled and stamped cards.


I created my backgrounds using some of the new colours of Catherine Pooler inks with the Stars and Stripes Stencil.  I blended the two colours together using a blending brush and used that piece as a background for the bunny from the Somebunny Stamp Set.
I stamped and die cut the bunny and adhered it to the stenciled piece with some dimensional tape.







For my second card I stuck to the one color ink and stamped the sentiment from Hello Stamps directly onto my stenciled piece.

Less is More Challenge #455 - Winter Whites

 Hello, it's time for a new challenge over at Less is More and this time we are looking for Winter Whites on your card.



For my card today I've used a Christmas tree die from Memory Box.  I've had this die for years and haven't used it much so this is the perfect time!

I ink blended some Catherine Pooler "It's a Boy" ink and adhered the Christmas tree using liquid glue.  I think it needed a touch of colour to make the tree stand out.  Then I added a little bit of bling for the ornaments.  I stamped the sentiment from Uniko with some black ink.


We would love you to join us for our Winter White challenge.  Click HERE to take you over to the challenge blog to see all the DT inspiration.
