CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #173

CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #173

Hello everyone! It’s time for a new challenge at CAS-ual Friday’s Challenge Blog! This time we are celebrating CAS-ual Friday’s 6th birthday with a pick 6 theme!! 


Yay!! Happy Birthday CAS-ual Fridays! Ok here’s my card.


First, I adhered 6x 1″ strips of colored cardstock on a 5×6 panel of white cardstock. I then diecut 6 stars/snowflakes using the smallest die in the Funky Flakes Fri-Die set. Next, I diecut 6 of the same star/snowflakes out of glitter paper. I then adhered my 5×6 panel onto my 5×7 card base and then inlaid the glitter stars. 


Next, I diecut “Bravo!” out of a strip of white cardstock using the Smiling Fri-Die set. I then trimmed the strip and then adhered it to my panel using foam tape. Next, stamped the rest of my sentiment on a strip of black cardstock using the Thanks Stamp Set and then heat embossed it in white. Lastly, I adhered the strip to my card using foam tape and added wink of Stella to the entire “Bravo!” banner. 

And I actually made a bonus with the scraps from the first. Sometimes scraps are just too pretty to toss.


I hope you enjoyed my card and will join us in this challenge celebrating CAS-ual Friday’s 6th birthday!

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!
