Hello everyone!! It’s time for a new challenge or at CAS-ual Friday’s Challenge Blog! This time the theme is Christmas in July!
This is such a fun challenge for the summer and it’s always a good idea to get a jump start on those Christmas cards. Here’s what I came up with.
First, I diecut some circles from an A2 panel of white cardstock. I then lined my panel up with my A2 white cardbase and then traced the circles onto the cardbase with a pencil. Next ink blended 3 different shades of ink over each traced circle using a mini ink blending tool. I then diecut 3 of the snowflakes from the Funky Flakes Fri-Die set 3 times each and then glued each set together using a liquid adhesive. I then stamped and silver heat embossed a sentiment from the Snowy Sayings Stamp Set.
Next, I adhered a piece of acetate to the backside of my panel and then constructed wells with foam tape around each circle on the back of the panel. I then filled each well with silver glitter and silver sequins and then peeled the backing off the foam tape and stick my panel onto my card base. Lastly I adhered my snowflakes onto the acetate with some liquid adhesive.
I hope you enjoyed and you with join the Christmas fun over at the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge Blog!

Hello everyone! It’s time for a new challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays Challenge Blog! This time it’s a tic-tac-toe challenge! Yay!
These are always so fun! I love looking at everyone’s projects and trying to figure out which three elements they chose!
I went across the bottom and chose shaker card, rainbow and add texture. And here’s my creation.
First I diecut six petals into a white A2 panel using the leaf die from the Posies Fri-Die. I then repeatedly stamped and white embossed panel using a stamp from the Zigs & Zags stamp set. I then constructed my shaker by adhering a panel of acetate behind the diecut petals. Then I constructed wells on the back of the panel around the petals with doubled up foam tape.
I then filled the wells with a rainbow of sequins and then sealed up the back of my panel with another A2 panel. Lastly, I adhered the panel to my top-folding card base then added a stamped and white embossed sentiment strip which I created using the Wonderful Words stamp set. I also added a large white sequin to the center of the flower.
I hope you enjoyed and will give this challenge a try yourself, which way will you go?

Hello everyone!! I’ve got another card to share for the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge! It’s an awesome color challenge this week!
I love color challenges and this combo is fantastic! Ok, here’s what I created.
First I cut 1/4 inch strips of aqua and color cardstock. I then adhered all the strips with liquid adhesive to a scrap of white cardstock. Next, using the Smiling Fri-dies, I diecut “thanks” out of my striped paper. I then adhered it my side-folding A2 card base made from grey cardstock. Next, I diecut 4 “thanks” from white card stock and then adhered them together with liquid adhesive.
Once the glue was set I adhered the “thanks” into the negative “thanks” space in the striped section. I then stamped and heat embossed the rest of my sentiment in white on a strip of grey cardstock using the Thanks Stamp Set.
Lastly, I then adhered this strip to my card front using foam tape and then stamped the rest of my sentiment inside my card using grey ink.
I hope you enjoyed and I’ve inspired you to give this challenge a go! Thanks for stopping by, have a spectacular day!
