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!
The MFT Card Design Superstar is finally here! The card that you see below is my entry for the “Clean and Simple Genius” category.
Sometimes, less is really more! I wanted to create a clean and simple Halloween card with non-traditional Halloween colors. I also like the white pumpkins as fall decor, which is why I colored the pumpkins with light gray Copic markers. I wanted my focal point to be on the little witch and her cat. These images are so adorable!
I started out by stamping my images on Bristol Smooth 110 lb. white card stock using my MFT stamps Black Licorice hybrid ink. I used Copic markers to color my images in and used the coordinating dies to die-cut the images.
For my “subtle” sky scene, I used the clouds stencils with my light blue inkpad, lightly sponging the color on the card stock.
Hello everyone. I am back today for Newton’s Nook Designs and I am sharing a simple dog-themed card, showcasing the Terrific Terriers stamp set and its coordinating dies. I am currently in Toronto, Canada undergoing physiotherapy so I will keep this blog post short.
I started out by stamping my images on Neenah solar white card stock and I colored my images in with my Copic markers. I die-cut the rest of the pieces that I needed for my card using dies from my stash. I finished my design by creating my own “patterned paper” using the paw prints and the heart that came with the stamp set.
Here is my card today. As you can see, it is very simple but I really love how it turned out. This stamp set is now available for purchase at http://www.newtonsnook.com. Have an amazing day!

For today’s post, I have created a birthday card, showcasing the new stamp set called Newton Loves Cake and Newton Loves Cake coordinating dies.
I started out by stamping my images on Neenah solar white card stock, with my memento tuxedo black ink. I colored the images with my Copic markers and die-cut them using the coordinating dies.
I die-cut my card panel and distressed the background using my favorite distress inks – Spun Sugar and Shaded Lilac. For the second card, I used Spun Sugar and Evergreen Bough. I wanted to use some soft pastel colors for these two birthday cards.
To finish the design, I die-cut a rectangle frame to create a window, adding the banner to the frame. I stamped my sentiment and adhered the 3 silver stars. I also used my white gel pen to add some white dots to the card, making it look more whimsical.
Here’s the first card:
And here’s the second card I designed with the same concept but different shape and colors. I wanted to really show off this stamp set by creating more than one sample for you. The possibilities are endless using this stamp set!
