CAS-ual Friday’s Challenge #187

CAS-ual Friday’s Challenge #187

Hello everyone!! There’s a new challenge up over at CAS-ual Friday’s Challenge Blog!

This time the theme is “Gratitude with Attitude”. Here’s what I came up with!

This card is pretty simple but I love the way it turned out. I’m always a sucker for a large graphic sentiment and CAS-ual Friday’s has some of the best!

First I stamped and gold heat embossed a sentiment from the Thanks Stamp Set on an A2 top-folding card made from maroon cardstock and 110lb white cardstock adhered together. I then adhered large gold glitter pieces in the small circular negative spaces in the “BIG” and over the embossed “thanks”.

The glitter is by Martha Stewart and I used Tombow Mono Multi Liquid adhesive to adhere them. I don’t have pick up tool so I simply used a small brush that I dampened the end to which allowed me to pick up the glitter and place it on the card.

I hope you enjoyed my card and found some inspiration for this fun challenge!

Thanks for stopping by!

[Video] Frosted Window Trifold Card

Hello everyone! I have a really fun Trifold Card to share with you all today over at Waffle Flower Crafts’ Blog. I used a technique by Jennifer McGuire to give this window its frosted appearance and I just love how it helps to hide the adorable scene on the inside created with the Cold Hands Stamp Set.

Plus this card is perfect for gift giving because I added a little gift card pocket on the inside.

I hope you guys get a chance to check it out! Thanks so much for stopping by!!

CAS-ual Friday’s Challenge #186

CAS-ual Friday’s Challenge #186

Hello everyone! Today I have some inspiration to share for this week’s challenge over at CAS-ual Friday’s Challenge Blog


You read that correctly, NO cards! Gasp! But that’s my comfort zone. So I what do I do I go to my other comfort zone wine 😆 and here’s what I came up with! 


A wine tag of course! First I diecut 3 different snowflakes using the Funky Flakes Fri-Dies from white card stock and white craft foam. I glued the large and medium matching cardstock and craft foam snowflakes together. I then smooshed the smaller snowflake into my versamark ink pad and then heat embossed it in gold and hen glued it to its matching craft foam counterpart. I then die cut a circle from glitter paper and white card stock and then also diecut a tag/arch from white cardstock. 


I then stamped and gold heat embossed a sentiment from the Snowy Sayings Stamp Set on the lower portion of the tag. Next, I adhered the snowflakes, one on top of the other, then adhered them onto the glitter circle. I then adhered a loop of ribbon to the back of the tag and covered the junction with the white die cut circle. Lastly, I adhered the glittery circle with the snowflakes onto the front of the tag. 

I hope you enjoyed my project today and hopefully found some inspiration for this week’s challenge!

[Video] Food Adventure Card

[Video] Food Adventure Card

Hello all! Hope you all had a fun Halloween. My 5 year old was Rey from Star Wars and loved using the light saber as a flashlight and basically showing it off at every house we went too. My 3 year old however changed her mind again and we had to scramble and return the Mulan costume we purchased for her before it was too late and then throw something together with what we already had in our stock pile of dress-up clothes. She wanted to be a black bat but after negotiations settled on a pink Batgirl, which her sister was last year. Phew! Overall trick-or-treating was a blast this year. The girls really loved going to each house, unlike previous years when they were younger and I felt like I was literally dragging them along. 

Today I have a simple card design to share that is perfect for masculine cards or for our foodie friends. 


Head on over to Waffle Flower to see the video and get all the details.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a fantastic day!
