CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #176

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!

CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #175

Hello everyone! I’m here with a new card for CAS-ual Fridays new challenge!! Get out your hoard of patterned papers, come I know you got pads upon pads, and use them in a this week’s challenge.


I always struggle with incorporating pattern paper even those I love each sheet I own. This time I played it safe and went with stripes.


First, I trimmed my sheet of patterned paper to 7 x 4.5. Then I adhered it to an sheet of craft foam and then adhered it to a 5 x 7 white card base. I then stamped and white embossed the largest flower from the Wonderful Words Stamp Set on vellum. After I heat set the flowers I fussy cut th out and then adhered them onto my card. 


I then stamped and white embossed a sentiment from the Pretty Posies Stamp Set on a strip of black cardstock and adhered it onto my card front. Next, I diecut “smile” using the Smiling Fri-Dies out of white cardstock and white craft foam. Lastly, I adhered them together and then adhered it to the card front. 


I hope you enjoyed and I possibly inspired you to dig into your stash of pattern paper and give this challenge a go!!

Thanks for stopping by!

CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #174

CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #174

Hello everyone!! I apologize for being MIA for the last week and being late on this post for CAS-ual Friday’s Challenge #174. I just got back from a family vacation which consumed most of my time and focus and I fell a little behind. But I’m back and ready for some crafty action! 😉

The new theme this challenge a sketch! 


And here’s my creation! 

To create this card, first I stamped one of the flowers from the Wallflower Stamp Set in yellow ink in the center of a 4.75 x 6.75 panel of white cardstock. I then rotated the stamp 45 degrees and stamped it again. Next, I rotated it another 45 degrees and stamped it again without reinking it so it stamped alittle lighter. I then rotated it and stamped it one more time, again without reinking, to complete my first flower. 


I repeated this process 8 more times in a rainbow of colors to make a 3×3 grid like the sketch and then adhered my panel to a 5×7 card base. I then stamped and white embossed a sentiment from the Wallflower Stamp Set on a strip of black and then adhered my sentiment strip to my card with foam tape. 

I hope you enjoyed! Thanks for stopping by!!
