We’ll Get Through This Together with CAS-ual Fridays

I hope everyone’s doing well!  I’ve been enjoying creating some rainbow-themed cards lately and I have another one for you today, showcasing products by CAS-ual Fridays Stamps.

 

To begin, I used the Love Ribbon stencil and inked up an A2-size black card panel with some white pigment ink.  I waited for about half an hour until the ink was dry.    

 

I used my mini ink blending tools to add color on top of the white ink using distress oxide inks in rainbow colors. 

 

I used my Glitz Glitter Gel and stencil pal to add more texture and interest to the image.  I waited for another half an hour until the gel was completely dry.

 

 

I stamped the sentiment from the Heart ribbon stamp set using Versamark ink and sprinkled some white embossing powder, then heat-set using my heating tool.

 

To finish my design, I die-cut the word “hope” twice using some gray and white card stock.  I glued both pieces together to create dimension and adhered it onto the card panel with some liquid glue.

 

I love that the colors really popped against the black background!  Here’s another look:

Rainbow Bridge

I hope you’re all doing well and creating a lot of cards and other D.I.Y. projects while on lockdown.  I am honestly so thankful we have this hobby.  This is what keeps me going whilst not being able to travel and see my family.  Let us all pray together that this pandemic goes away so we can all get back to our normal routine.

 

My project today showcases the Rainbow Bridge stamp set.

 

To make my card, I stamped the rainbow image on some Bristol smooth white card stock using versamark ink.  I put some white embossing powder and heat-set with my heating tool.

 

 

I ink-blended the stamp image with various distress oxide inks in rainbow colors.  Using my precision snips, I fussy-cut the image.  I also die-cut a few elements that I needed to create my scene.

I used a stencil from my stash to create the clouds on a panel of Neenah solar white card stock.  I adhered the rainbow onto the card with liquid glue, and foam-mounted the clouds.

The sentiment was stamped with versamark ink and embossed with my heating tool.  Here’s a closer look:

 

 

To finish my design, I added the red enamel heart in the middle of the rainbow.  I really LOVE how this card turned out.  

 

 

Here’s what the Rainbow Bridge stamp set  look like:

Crafting of Hue Sponsorship with Cas-ual Fridays – Celebrate Life

Hello everyone!  I’m super excited to share today’s post!  Cas-ual Fridays Ink Squad is celebrating with  a 20% off the entire collection (using coupon code: HUE20) at the shop and we are this week’s sponsor for Crafting of Hue.

 

 

This weekend’s theme is all about “CELEBRATION” and my project today is about “Celebrating Life“.   I have a friend who is going through so much pain lately and this card is for her.  I want her to know that “life is beautiful” and even though it seems that her world is surrounded by darkness, there’s always light at the end of the tunnel.

 

For my card today, I am showcasing the Tin Roof stencilPretty Posies stamp set, Posies Fri-Dies and the sentiment is from the Flower Angel stamp set.

 

 

To make my card, I started by stamping my images on Neenah solar white card stock and colored the images in with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.  I use the Posies fri-dies to die-cut the images.

 

I cut an A2 size piece of Bristol smooth white card stock and inked up this panel with Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade distress oxide ink.  I used the Tin Roof stencil and Spiced Marmalade ink to create more texture for my background.  I smooshed the ink pad onto an acrylic block and added some water, then used my watercolor brush to add droplets to this panel.  I then wiped it with my paper towel and set it aside to dry.

 

I die-cut the white wreath using a die from my stash and adhered this piece on my colored background.  I added the flowers with foam and liquid adhesive and put this piece back on to my paper trimmer and trimmed about an eighth of an inch.   I added this panel to an A2 size card base.

 

To ground the bold images and balance it out, I added a strip of black and white patterned paper.

 

I stamped the sentiment on a strip of black card stock and sprinkled some white embossing powder then heat-set with my heating tool.  I adhered this piece in the middle using my tape runner.  Here’s my card:

 

 

 

To finish my design, I used my white gel pen and drew some white dots on the images for added texture and dimension.  Here’s a closer look:

 

 

I hope you like my card today.  The supplies I used are listed and linked below.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Funny Birthday Card with Frankly-isms by CAS-ual Fridays

Hello CAS-ual Fridays fans!  I am back with a super funny (and quick), clean & simple card showcasing the Frankly-isms stamp set.

I have been dying to use this stamp set for a friend’s birthday.  She and I share the same twisted humor and I thought this is going to be a perfect birthday card for her.

I ink-blended an A2-size Bristol smooth white card stock with distress oxide inks.  I used a stencil from my stash and combined Fossilized Amber, Carved Pumpkin and Candied Apple with my mini ink blending tools.

I stamped the sentiment in the middle and adhered this piece on an A2-size card base.

I finished my design by adding the sparkling clear jewels to add more interest and texture.  Here’s a closer look:

Little Huggable Stamp & Little Critters Fri-Dies – June Release by CAS-ual Fridays

Hello, hello my crafty peeps!  I am joining the CAS-ual Fridays Ink Squad to bring you the Little Huggable Stamp Set and Little Critters Fri-Dies. It is the first day of the June release and I am so thrilled to be asked by Michele to guest-design this month. I have missed the ink squad so much and I am happy to announce that starting in July, I am once again part of the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps design team.

 

 

For my first project, I started out by stamping my images with Spectrum Noir Finesse Black Ink.  This is an alcohol-friendly ink and perfect to use with my Spectrum Noir TriBlend markers.  I die-cut the images using the Little Critters Fri-Dies.

 

 

The background was ink-blended with some distress oxide inks for some pop of color.  I also used a small star die from my stash to die-cut three windows on some white card stock.   I used fun foam to add dimension and stability, and adhered the die-cut panel on the ink-blended background.

 

 

I die-cut the word “hello” using the Sweet Friend Fri-Dies on some Bristol smooth white card stock.  I ink-blended this carefully with distress oxide inks and adhered this piece on the card front.  I finished my card design by adhering the critters and adding sparkling clear jewels on the card.  Here’s a closer look:

 

 

For my second project, I once again ink-blended an A2-size Bristol smooth white card stock with distress oxide inks.  I sprayed this with water and dabbed it with some paper towel for some added interest and texture.  I adhered this background on an A2 size card base.

 

I also die-cut two white panels using a border die from my stash and adhered these pieces with fun foam and liquid glue for some added dimension.  I die-cut the palm trees using another die from my stash on some Bristol smooth white card stock and colored it with distress oxide inks.  I adhered the pieces on the card front with foam and liquid adhesives.

 

 

I finished my design by adding the sentiment “Pooches Gracias” stamped with versamark ink and heat-set using my heating tool.  Here’s a closer look:
