It is day 5 of the March release by CAS-ual Fridays stamps and today, we are showcasing the Noteworthy Fri-Dies.   The good news is you don’t have to wait!  The March release is now available at the shop.

 

For my card below, I used the Noteworthy Fri-Dies, the Jumping Jack Fri-dies and a retired stamp called “Be”.

CARD RECIPE:

  • I used some black card stock to die-cut my spiral piece using the Noteworthy fri-dies, three times and adhered them together with liquid glue.
  • I cut a patterned paper using the same die and stamped my encouraging sentiment using the Be stamp set.
  • I used some glitter card stock to die-cut my embellishment using the Jumping Jacks Fri-Dies. and adhered the pieces on my card.
  •  I cut two strips of rainbow pattered paper and adhered both pieces on the sides of my card base.  I adhered the other elements I needed to finish my card.

I love the versatility of these dies.  They are quite unique!  I thought about crating a scrapbook layout using the same dies as well.

Simple Cards with Patterned Paper & Bold Sentiments Featuring “Be” stamp set

Hello CAS-ual Fridays fans!  I hope you are having a great week so far.  Maria here with you today sharing some very simple cards with pretty patterned papers and bold sentiments, showcasing my favorite stamp set called “Be”.  Here’s what I used for my projects today:

As paper crafters, I’m sure you can relate that we all have a bajillion collection of patterned papers!    Sometimes when I am not feeling all crafty especially when experiencing jet lag, I want to create some very simple but beautiful cards.  I always look at my collection of patterned papers and bold sentiments stamp set.  The “Be” stamp set is just what I needed today to create some encouraging cards.  This stamp set is a must-have!

Some of my non-crafty friends used to tell me that they just didn’t have any patience to make hand-made cards.  If you are a beginner and you don’t have a lot of supplies (or have no patience to color and die-cut), you can still make pretty cards by collecting some amazing stamp sets like the one that I used here and some beautiful patterned papers.

For my first card, I cut a patterned paper that I purchase from the craft store and adhered this piece to my card base.  I think the sentiment I used for my card below went perfectly well with the images on the paper.

To finish my card I simply added some white dot details to the images with my Sakura Gelli-Roll pen.

This card only took less than 2 minutes to make but I think it will definitely make someone’s day.  The bold sentiment complimented the busy background.  Here’s a close-up:

For my second card, I used a rainbow patterned paper and a die from my stash to die-cut the middle piece.  I adhered this piece onto my A2 size card base with some foam adhesive.  I stamped the sentiment in the middle.

To finish the design, I added the white die-cuts using the Jumping Jacks Fri-dies.  I also added some sparkling clear jewels.

Don’t you just love the simplicity of these two cards?  I hope you got inspired today.  Please visit CAS-ual Fridays stamps to purchase the supplies I used.  Don’t forget to use my coupon code below, for 15% off your order.  Have a wonderful day and happy crafting!
