Full on Floral ink blending

Hello everyone, Michelle W here today and I have an ink blended/coloured pencil card to share with you.  I stamped the gorgeous Full on Floral back ground stamp with versamark ink and white heat embossed it onto a piece of white card stock.  Then I took my trusty CP inks and blended three different colours using a blending tool.  I could have left it there because it was pretty enough, but I decided to colour a few of the flowers in using my new set of 150 Prisma pencils that Santa brought me!  And I just couldn't stop there so I went over the whole image with a shimmer pen.  I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from Heartfelt Sayings in black ink onto a strip of white card stock and adhered it onto my card front with dimensional tape.

You're Sassy, Classy and Pretty Bad Assy!

Hello Cas-ual Fridays stamp fans! Maria here on the blog today sharing with you a "sassy" coffee card showcasing a LOT of products from the shop.  I used one of my all-time favorite stamp set called Frankly'isms with the Cup of Coffee stamp set and Coffee Cup Fri-Dies and the Scallop Tags Fri-Dies.

Here's what I used:

I started out by stamping the Coffee Cup image on a gingham patterned paper and die cut the same with the Cup of Coffee Fri-Die.   I die-cut the tags using the Scallop Tags Fri-Dies with vellum and patterned paper. I ran the vellum tag on a hearts embossing folder to give it more dimension. I adhered both tags using mini glue dots.

On a piece of Bristol smooth white card stock, I used a stencil from my stash to add some color to the background with distress oxide inks.  I sprayed it with water to get the oxidize effect.

I adhered the tags onto my colored background.  I stamped the sentiment onto the "coffee cup" and adhered this piece on top of the tags.

To finish the design, I added the bow on top of the tag and also added some brown jewels to make them look like coffee bubbles.

Here's a closer look:

Don't you just LOVE the sentiment?  If you love coffee as much as I do, I think that sentiment is perfect!  I also added some white highlights using my Sakura gel pen.  I LOVE those brown jewels! They just added a little bit more "oomph" to the whole card design, don't you think?!  Here's another look:

Let's Dance It Out

Hi All - it's Vicki here today from All I Do Is Stamp.  I have [what I think] is a super fun card.  This is going to be perfect for my co-worker, and her stress level.  Dancing it out will add in some fun!

I started by cutting some strips of colored card stock, and adhered them to my card.  Then, using the Scallop Tags Fri-Dies, I stamped the bigger tag with the Full on Floral stamp sheet.  I stamped  the cute image from the Tutu stamp set, and cut it out with the matching Ballerina Fri-Dies.

I am an avid fan of Grey's Anatomy, and this sentiment is one of my favorites. :)

That's it for me today.  I hope you enjoyed my card. :)

Love Ya

Hi everybody!! Hope you've had a great week and it isn't too long now till you reach the weekend. I'm still in half-holiday/half-work mode as I've gone back to work but the kids don't return to school till the end of January, so after a day slogging over millions of weeds I then go off and swim/hang-out with them till dinner. Gotta love Summer-time!!

I can't believe that we are already half-way thru January so I thought I would share with you a card that could be used for Valentines Day next month or maybe any other day you feel you want to tell someone how much they mean to you:


This was a super-simple card to put together and thought it would look really good mass produced in different colour combo's to send to friends next month!!

I started off by die-cutting the second-largest Bubble Box Fri-die from white card-stock. I then stamped over-top the Heart to Heart Background Stamp with Versamark ink and heat embossing with WOW! Embossing Powder in 'Pastel Glacier Mint'. I didn't want to use a usual 'pink' colour combo for a love card so decided to use this blue and then paint the hearts with Distress Oxide Ink 'Spun Sugar'. I also painted the dot areas with Distress Oxide Ink in 'Tumbled Glass'.

Once this had dried I die-cut the middle of the panel with the Love Ya Fri-die. I worked out where the die-cut area would sit on the card front and blended the same Distress Oxide Ink over this area to create the background. I was then able to pop the panel up on foam tape. For something completely different, instead of adding the die-cut bits to the middle of the letters, I carried on with the 'blue dot effect' that's in the background stamp and used the same coloured blue enamel dots for the spaces.

 I hope this has given you some ideas for your card making this weekend and if you are going to do some shopping, don't forget to use my special code to save yourself 15%!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see you back here again soon with some more card ideas!!

Take care

Somebunny Hoppy Birthday

Hello my dear crafty friends! Irit is here today with a new small card tutorial I made for CAS- ual Fridays blog.
I used a cute stamp set and Fri- dies to make a black and white (with a touch of gold) Birthday card.
As you can see this card has minimum coloring and minimum embellishments.
Actually I only used glitter glue and some enamel drops to add gold touches and some coloring of the bunnies.

Here you can see the layering over the card :

And some close- ups too:

CAS- ual Fridays products used to make this card:
Bunny Fri- dies

Heart to Heart
And now to the tutorial:
1. Die cut two card bases in the A2 size- one black and one white.
Stamp the Heart to Heart background with black pigmented ink over white cardstock and heat emboss with clear embossing powder. Stamp the same background with VersaMark over black cardstock and heat emboss with white embossing powder.

2. Cut both stamped pieces diagonally . Glue two triangles over the black card  base as shown. Glue the two remained triangles on the back and die cut the smaller rectangle. Glue the smaller die cut  rectangle over the first one as shown.

3.Stamp the bunny image twice- one over black cardstock with white heat embossing and one over white cardstock with black embossing. Die cut both bunnies and one balloon as shown.Stamp the sentiment with permanent black ink.

4. Arrange the images over the basic card and glue them with 3d foam glue.
Add gold glitter glue and white, black and clear enamel dots as shown. Your fancy and yet easy to make card is done.
