CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #167

CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #167

Hello everyone!! I’m here with some inspiration for the new challenge at CAS-ual Fridays Challenge Blog!! The new theme this week is very fitting for the upcoming holiday! 


Pretty perfect huh! And here’s what I came up with.


First I repeatedly stamped the flowers and leaves from the Pretty Posies Stamp Set in red on a 5×7 panel of pink card stock. I then adhered my pink panel to my card base made from red cardstock. I then stamped the several of the same flowers and leaves on white cardstock and then colored only the flowers in with some alcohol markers (I mostly used my new Ohuhu markers and I we have a review on these in the near future). 


After my coloring was complete I die cut all my images out using the Posies Fri-Die. I then adhered the leaves and some of flowers directly onto the panel and the remaining flowers I attached with foam tape to added depth. Lastly, I stamped and white embossed the sentiment from the Love Notes Stamp Set on a strip of black cardstock and adhered it to the card front with foam tape. 

I hope enjoyed and with give this challenge at try! Thanks for stopping by!

CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #166

CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #166

Hello everyone!! It’s time for a new challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays! This time our theme is “Music to my Ears”.


I have to admit I struggled with this one. I knew I wanted to use the genius Love Notes Stamp Set but I just couldn’t come up with any ideas I liked. But then comes my Husband to the rescue, he says why don’t I do something related to La La Land, like the movie poster. I was like yes that’s brilliant and so the birth of my card design. 


First, I stamped the large love from the Love Notes Stamp Set note in yellow ink and then stamped it again with embossing ink and embossed it in clear. Next I stamped the note again and embossed it in white. Then I created two masks for my notes with post it notes and then placed it on top. Next, I stamped the line of notes in medium blue ink over the large embossed notes. 


With my masks still in place I ink blended 3 shades of blue ink over the entire card front to create a gradation. Once all my ink blending was completed, I thoroughly dried my all my blended ink and then stamp and white embossed a sentiment from the Love Notes Stamp Set. And that’s it! 😄

I hope you enjoyed and will give this challenge a try for yourself!

Hello everyone!! Today I’m over at Waffle Flower Crafts’ blog with a new technique video!!


This time I’m demonstrating wet on wet watercoloring. This is such a fun and loose technique! It is so amazing to watch too, it looks like the paint is painting itself! And I love the results. You end up with a more molten or varied look that is really beautiful. 

I hope you will stop by Waffle Flower and check it out!

Have a wonderful day!!
