Uplifting Slimline Card with Cas-ual Friday Stamps & Sale Info

Hello crafty friends! Before I show you my card, I just want to let you know that CAS-ual Fridays is making room for upcoming release and they have a sale until September 7th.  The stamps, dies and stencils are already reduced but you can still use my coupon code below (code at the end of the post), for an additional 15% discount.  Hurry up and get some of those goodies before they sell out!

For my project today, I am featuring one of the stamp set that is currently on sale, called “Floating“.  The bunny came from the Somebunny stamp set.

 

I started by inking up my slimline panel using a clouds stencil and some distressed oxide ink.  I also die-cut the trees, grass hill and the clouds using a die from my collection.  

I stamped and colored my images in with alcohol markers.  Since the floating stamp set did not come with a coordinating die, I used my precision snips to fussy-cut the image.   

I adhered my colored panel on a slimline white card base.  I adhered the trees, grass hill and clouds with some glue.  I also adhered my focal images using my tape runner.  I thought about using foam adhesive but I didn’t think it needed more dimension.

To finish my design, I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx black ink.  Here’s another look:

Serendipi-tea with Cas-ual Fridays Stamps

Hello Cas-ual Fridays fans!  I’m back today to share this very simple (but cute) card, showcasing the Serendipi-tea stamp set and Teapot Fri-Die.

I started by die-cutting the teapot and the cup using the Teapot fri-die.  I positioned the diecuts back into its place and secured it with some washi tape.  I stamped the images using Spectrum Noir Alcohol Proof ink in Rustic Brown and colored the images in with alcohol markers.

I adhered some patterned papers on an A2 size-card base.  I also die-cut the “table cloth” using a die from my collection and adhered on the card.  I added the colored images with some foam adhesive for more texture and dimension.

To finish my design, I added some sparkling clear jewels with liquid glue.  I also stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx black ink.  Quick and simple but I love how it turned out.  Here’s another look:

Happy Anniversary Card with CAS-ual Fridays Stamps

A friend of mine asked me to create an anniversary card for his wife so it’s all about flowers and anniversaries today!  

For today’s card, I am showcasing the Pretty Posies stamp set and Posies Fri-Die.

 

I started by stamping the images on some vellum with versamark ink.  I sprinkled some white embossing powder and heat-set with my heating tool.

I die-cut the flowers using the coordinating dies.  I flipped the cut images on the other side and used my alcohol markers to color them in.  I set them aside to dry and started working on my background.

I die-cut an A2 size panel of white card stock and used some dye inks and blending brush to lightly color the background.  I pressed the same ink pad onto an acrylic block and added some water.  I used my paint brush to splatter some color on my background for a more cohesive look, and added texture.

 I adhered the vellum flowers on the card using my Xyron sticker maker and some foam adhesive for added dimension.

To finish my design, I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black ink and added the Sparkling Hearts droplets on the card.  Here’s another look:

You Are Capable of More Than You Know

How’s everyone doing?  Maria here on the blog with you today and I am back to give you more inspiration using products from the last release.  

Lately, I have been making more clean and simple cards that can be easily mass-produced to send to friends.  For my project today, I am showcasing the Terrific Flowers stamp set, along with the Blossom Bubble stencil.

 

To make the card, I started by using my anti-static powder tool and dabbed this on some Neenah solar white card stock.  I used my Misti stamping tool to stamp the flower images with some versamark ink.  I then sprinkled some white embossing powder and used my heating tool to heat-set the image.

I used pixie spray on the Blossom Bubble stencil and placed it against the stamped image.  The spray will make the stencil a bit tacky so that it doesn’t shift while you’re coloring the image.  This is a must-have tool for anyone who loves to use stencils.

To color the images, I used my mini sponge dauber and some hybrid inks and started pouncing lightly until the colors are well-blended, putting more pressure to the bottom of each flower for added dimension.  Easy peasy!

I stamped the sentiment from one of my favorite stamp sets from Cas-ual Fridays called “Be”, using some light gray dye ink.  To add texture, I used the same gray dye ink and watercolor brush to add some splatters to the card.  I finished my design by adding some iridescent jewels to the card, giving it more dimension.  Here’s another look:

I hope I have given you some inspiration today to create some clean and simple cards, using stamps and stencils from the shop.  The supplies I use are listed and linked below.  Please don’t don’t forget to use my coupon code (below) to get 15% off your order.   Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!

Wishing You A Magical Birthday with Cas-ual Fridays

I hope everyone’s doing well!  I’m sharing a simple birthday card today showcasing the Be a Unicorn stamp set with the Unicorn Fri-Die.

 

 

I stamped the image with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Proof Ink in Brown.  I colored the image in with my Spectrum Noir TriBlend markers and used the Unicorn Fri-Die to die-cut the image.

 

I cut an A2 size Neenah solar white card stock on an angle and foam-mounted this piece on an A2 size card base.  I added the rainbow patterned paper.

 

The black decorative border was die-cut using a retired border die from Cas-ual Fridays but you can use any other border die to add to your card.

 

 

 

I finished my design by stamping the sentiment with Versafine Onyx black in and added some crystal jewels.  Here’s a closer look:
