Hi There Hop Stuff! with Cas-ual Fridays

Happy Tuesday!  I’m back for Cas-ual Fridays Stamps  today with this fun card, showcasing the Little Huggables stamp set and Little Critters fri-die with the Hearts A2 Panel fri-die.

 

 

I started by stamping the bunnies on Neenah solar white card stock with Desert Sand Memento Ink.  I colored the images with my alcohol markers and die cut using the coordinating dies.

 

I ink-blended an A2 size panel of Bristol smooth white card stock and used some clouds and hills stencil to create the background.  I die-cut the A2 Hearts Panel die with some white card stock and foam-mounted this panel.  I carefully inserted the bunnies and adhered using foam adhesive.

 

 

Lastly, I die-cut some hearts and stamped the sentiment on some black strip of card stock and adhered to the card.  Here’s a closer look:

 

 

This card turned out so cute.  I hope you got inspired today.  Please don’t forget to use my coupon code below to get 15% off your order.  Have an amazing day!

 

 

Humorous Card with Cas-ual Fridays Stamps

Back today with Cas-ual Fridays Stamps sharing this humorous card, showcasing the 4×6 This Sucks stamp set with the Tin Roof Stencil and Jumping Jacks Fri-Dies.

To begin, I used a patterned paper from my stash and stuck this panel on my mat with some removable tape.  I used Picked Raspberry and Wilted Violet distress oxide inks with the Tin Roof stencil to add more interest to the background.  I set this piece aside to dry for about half an hour.

I used my powder bag to remove static on the card panel and stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink.  I sprinkled white embossing powder and heat-set this piece with my heating tool.  I adhered this panel on an A2 size side-fold card base.

I die-cut two decorative borders using a die from my stash and foam-mounted the pieces on my card.  I finished my design by die-cutting the Jumping Jacks Fri-Dies on some white card stock and adhered them with liquid glue.  I added some iridescent jewels to further adorn the card.  Here’s what it looks like:

This card will definitely cheer someone who is having a bad day!

I hope you like my project today and got inspired.  The supplies I used are listed and linked below.  Please don’t forget to use my coupon code below to get 15% off your order.  Have and amazing day and happy stamping!

You’ve Got Me Floating On Air with Cas-ual Fridays Stamps

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!!    I’m back today sharing this cute Valentine’s Day card showcasing the Some-bunny and Floating stamp sets by Cas-ual Fridays Stamps.

 

Before I proceed with my project, I’m just curious.  Who’s going out to dinner tonight to celebrate this occasion?  My hubby and I don’t normally go out on Valentine’s day.  He makes me a special dinner instead and it is sooooo much better than being in a restaurant because he is such a great cook!   For dinner tonight, hubby is making me Roast Duck with Black Cherry sauce.  Yum!
Okay, before I get hungry and start looking for an unhealthy snack, I might as well explain how I made my card.
to begin, I cut a 5 x 7 Bristol smooth white card stock and inked up the panel with my clouds and grass stencils, and distress oxide inks.  I set this panel aside to dry.
I stamped the images on some Neenah solar white card stock and used my TriBlend alcohol markers to color them in.  I fussy-cut the images with my Honey Bee scissors and adhered them together with liquid glue.
I adhered the images on the colored panel and added this to a 5×7 card base.
The sentiment was stamped with Versamark ink.  I sprinkled some white embossing powder and heat-set with my heating tool.  I foam-mounted this piece on my card to give it more depth & dimension.  Here’s my card:

To finish my design, I adhered the yellow stars and added a red heart on the bunny’s chest.   Here’s a closer look:

I hope you like my Valentine’s card today.  The supplies I used are listed and linked below.  Please don’t forget to use my coupon code below for 15% off your order.
Thanks for stopping by and have an amazing day!

Newton’s Nook Designs January Release Day 2 – Love Quarry

It is the second day of the January reveals by Newton’s Nook Designs.   I hope you were able to check out yesterday’s reveal.  You also have a chance to win each stamp set during release week so check out the details I have indicated at the end of this blog post.  [Just a little important note:  I know some of you had difficulties finding the comments section.  If you would like to leave a comment to participate in the giveaway, the “comments section” will only be ever visible when a single post on Word Press is being viewed.

For the second day of the reveals, we are showcasing the Love Quarry stamp set + coordinating dies.

 

 

To create this card, I started by stamping my images on some Neenah solar white card stock and used my alcohol markers to color the images. I die-cut the images using the coordinating dies.

 

I want my scene to look like these tractors are moving those hearts back and forth so I decided to cut my card stock four times using the land border die.   I ink-blended some of the die-cuts with Tumbled Glass distress oxide inks with my mini ink blending tools.

 

I adhered the die-cut pieces on an A2-size sidefold card base using either foam or liquid adhesives.  After adhering my images on the card, I realized I was still missing something so I decided to add the clouds using a die from my stash.   Lastly, I stamped the sentiment using some lobster ink.  Here’s the card:

 

 

I finished my design by adding glossy accents to the tractors.  I know you can’t see it on the photo but they look like glass.  Here’s a closer look:

My Heart Beats For You with Cas-ual Fridays

Hello my crafty peeps! I am also on the Cas-ual Fridays blog today with this super CAS Valentine’s Day card, showcasing the Love Notes stamp set and the Heart Note Fri-Die.

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and I want to get my cards done (and mailed) a few days before the occasion (here’s hoping it reaches the recipient before the actual day!).

The card I made is super simple.  I cut an A2 size Neenah solar white card stock and used my embossing Sizzix 3D embossing folder to dry emboss the card.

I die-cut the Heart Note Fri-Die in different shades of pink and red (should I call this color fifty shades of pink?  haha!).  I adhered and layered the heart notes together using liquid glue.   I foam-mounted this piece on my embossed background.

I added some glossy accents to the red heart for more texture and dimension.  Since you can’t see the gloss on the main photo, here’s a little close-up:

I stamped the sentiment on some black strip.  I sprinkled some embossing powder and heat-set using my Wagner heating tool.  I adhered the sentiment on the card with some liquid adhesive.  Here’s the card:

Simple yet elegant!  Here’s another look:

 

I hope you like my card today.   The supplies I used are listed and linked below.  Please don’t forget to use my coupon code (below)  at Cas-ual Fridays for an additional 15% off your order.

Have an amazing day and happy stamping!

For the first day of the reveals, we are showcasing the Tides of Love stamp set + coordinating dies with the Bokeh Hearts Stencil.

 

To begin, I sprayed my stencil with Pixie spray and cut an A2 size piece of some Bristol smooth white card stock.  I layered stencil no. 1 from the new Bokeh Hearts stencil and used my blending tool and fog ink to add the first set of hearts on my background.  I used stencil no. 2 and Pumice stone distress oxide ink to add the second layer of hearts.

 

Next, I used some scalloped heart die from my stash to die-cut my ink-blended background.  I also die-cut another heart with some pink card stock and added some texture to this using the Waves stencil with Worn lipstick distress oxide ink.  Since my background is pretty neutral, I wanted to make my focal point stand out.

 

I foam-mounted the neutral background on a side fold card base and inlaid my focal piece with liquid adhesive.  I stamped and colored my image with my alcohol markers and used the coordinating die to cut this piece.  I foam mounted this image onto my card.

 

To finish my design, I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink and sprinkled some embossing powder, then heat-set using my heating tool.  I added some white heart sprinkles to adorn the card and glossy accents to the heart for more texture and dimension.  Here’s a closer look:

Just Keep Soaring with Cas-ual Fridays

Hello Cas-ual Fridays fans! Maria here on the blog with you.  HAPPY New Year’s Eve!  Is everyone gearing up for midnight with a little bit of fireworks and some great food?  I am so lucky that I am back home in Florida and will get to celebrate tonight with my husband and children, and some closed friends!

I have a little “cheer-me-up” card today, showcasing the Floating stamp set, with the Hearts A2 Panel Fri-Die.

 

I started by ink-blending my background with some distress oxide inks on Bristol smooth white card stock.  I set this aside to dry.

I stamped my image on some Neenah solar white card stock and colored the images in with my Copic markers.  I fussy-cut the image with my cutter-bee scissors.

I die-cut some Neenah solar white card stock using the Hearts A2 panel fri-die.  I foam-mounted this piece on an A2 size card base.  I also adhered my main focal point on the card.

I used a die from my stash to die-cut a banner and stamped my sentiment using versamark ink.  I sprinkled some white embossing powder and heat-set using my heating tool.  I adhered this piece on my card.  Here’s what it looks like:

 

 

I love that this card is very simple, and easy to make.  I don’t think it even took me 5 minutes to finish this card.  Here’s a closer look:
