Congratulations! You Got Rescued! with Cas-ual Fridays


Cas-ual Fridays Stamps is having a Crafting of Hue special and we are celebrating with a 20% off on our entire critter collection.  You can also use my coupon code mentioned at the end of this post for an additional §15% off your order! 


For my card today, I am showcasing one of my favorite stamp set called Nate & Friday.



I started by ink-blending some Bristol smooth white card stock with distress oxide inks.  I sprayed this panel using my distress sprayer and dried it with some paper towel for added texture.


I stamped my image on some Neenah solar white card stock and fussy-cut using my precision snips.  I also die-cut the Congratulations circle frame die-namics on some 110 lb card stock four times and adhered with liquid glue for more dimension.  I adhered this piece on my colored background and foam-mounted my image in the middle.


I adhered the colored panel on an A2 size card base and stamped the sentiment with some Versafine Onyx black ink.  



To finish my design, I added some sparkling clear jewels.  Here’s a little close-up:



I hope you like my card today and got inspired.  The supplies I used will be listed and linked below.  Please use my coupon code for an additional 15% off your order!  Have an amazing weekend and happy stamping!



Best Day Ever! You Got Rescued!

Hello my crafty peeps!  I hope you are all having a great week so far!  Maria here on the blog today, sharing with you a simple card, showcasing the Nate & Friday stamp set, with the Best Day Ever Fri-dies.

I started out by inking up my image using a Sunburst stencil from my stash with some Squeezed Lemonade and Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide inks (this piece will be my foreground).  I also dry-embossed this piece with a heart-shaped die and adhered this onto my card base.

I stamped my image on some Neenah solar white card stock using a hybrid intense black ink and just colored him a little with my Tombow markers.  I blended the colors with my watercolor brush to give him a little dimension.  I fuzzy-cut the image with my precision cut scissors and adhered this piece to my card.

I die-cut the Best Day Ever Fri-dies on some white card stock and also adhered these pieces on my card with some Nuvo liquid adhesive.   To finish my design, I added the enamel heart and stamped my sentiment with Versa-fine Onyx Black ink.  I also highlighted his nose with some black glazed pen and let it dry, then topped it with some white gel pen.


Rescuing/adopting a dog is one of the greatest decisions one could ever make and needs to be celebrated!  The sentiment that I chose for this card is just perfect!  Here’s a little close-up:


Adding the pink enamel heart just made it pop!  This card is super simple but I love the way it turned out.  Here’s one last look:

CAS-ual Fridays Stamps – Nate & Friday

Time has flown by so fast!  It is the last day of the August release by CAS-ual Fridays Stamps and the design team is showcasing Nate & Friday stamp set.   This stamp set is so special because my daughter and I LOVE Frenchies.  Isn’t this stamp set so adorable?!  It is a must-have for any dog lovers!  The sentiment I used for my card is my favorite!




I die-cut some Bristol smooth white card stock which is my “go-to” card stock for distress oxide inks.  I used a stencil from my stash to add some details on my background.  This card is super simple but I LOVE how it turned out.




I added some black and white wash tape on my card base and adhered my colored background.  Don’t you just love this cute little Frenchie with a small heart on his chest?




This sentiment is so true!  Wishing you all warm snuggles, slobbery kisses and a tail that wags so hard its butt wiggles!
