CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #172

CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #172

Hello everyone!! I’m back again for a new challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays’ Challenge Blog


This time it’s a color challenge; pink, navy, & white to be percise. And here’s my creation.


First I repeatedly stamped and embossed the leaf and flowers from the Pretty Posie Stamp Set in pink on a 5×7 panel of navy cardstock. Once all was heat set I adhered my navy panel to my cardbase. I then cut “thanks” using the Smiling Fri-Die from white cardstock and white craft foam and the glued the two together to create a dimensional sentiment. 


Next I stamped and embossed a sentiment from the Pretty Posies Stamp Set in white on a strip of pink cardstock. I then adhered the “thanks” to the pink strip and then I adhered them both to a small rectangle of vellum. Lastly, I adhered the vellum to my card. 

Thanks for stopping by and I hope I inspired you to will give this challenge a go!

CAS-ual Friday’s Challenge #171

Hello everyone!! I’m back for another CAS-ual Friday’s Challenge!! Yahoo!! This week the theme is rainbows!! I know it’s wonderful isn’t it!! 🌈


Ok here’s my creation! 


I went a little untraditional and used a rainbow gradation to color the flowers. First I blended 8 inks on a large scrap of white cardstock to create my rainbow gradation. Next, I die cut several flowers out of my rainbow paper using the Posies Fri-Dies


I then stamped and white embossed the corresponding flowers from the Pretty Posies Stamp Set onto my die cuts. Next, I stamped and white embossed the leaves from the Pretty Posies set on my A7 kraft card base. Lastly I stamped and white embossed my sentiment from the Wallflower Stamp Set and then adhered my flowers with liquid adhesive. 

I hope you enjoyed and will give this challenge a try. I mean it’s rainbows how could you resist! 😉

Solid stamp can sometime stump us, especially when it come to coloring. This week I demonstrate another coloring approach you can take with your more solid stamps.
