Time to Party! - Happy Birthday CAS-ual Fridays Stamps!

Welcome back!  I've got some more birthday fun for you today!

I started by making a fun multicolored background using the Bubbly Stencil!  I chose the three colors I wanted to use in my card and started with the lightest.  I laid the stencil over the top of a white panel and blended some yellow through it.  I wiped off the stencil and turned it and applied green through it and then did the same with some blue.

Next I stamped and embossed the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Happy Birthday Stamps and fussy cut it out.  I cut some circles using the pinked and smooth circle dies from the Pinked Slimline dies and cut them in coordinating cardstock colors.  I popped the circles onto the base and then popped up the fussy cut Happy Birthday sentiment over the top of them.

Finally I stamped a sentiment from the Sassy Celebration set onto a banner from the Pinked Slimline set and popped that up over the top.

I finished it off and added it to two bases of green and white and added a few sequins for fun.

That's me for today!  Big Happy Birthday to Michele and CAS-ual Fridays Stamps!

9th Birthday Celebrations!

Hello, it’s Michelle here today and I have a special birthday card to share with you!

CAS-ual Fridays is 9 years old!

Can you believe that!!  Let's pop the champagne to celebrate.

For my card today I have used the Champagne Flute Die along with the Birthday Dies and the Happy Birthday stamps.

I started by die cutting the champagne flute out using an alcohol inked piece I had in my stash.

I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment onto a card panel and adhered the champagne flute over the top with liquid glue.

I die cut the Happy Birthday sentiment in black card stock and adhered that over the top of the stamped sentiment so it was showing on top of the glass.

I saved the little dots from the die cut bubbles and adhered them randomly.

Thanks for visiting and I hope I have inspired you to make a celebratory birthday card and be sure to come back to see what the rest of the Design Team have for you!

Never Give Up Hope

Hello Crafty Friends. 
It is Nora here from A Creative Touch with a card I created for Breast Cancer Awareness.

I used the CAS-Fridays Hope Ribbon stamp set to make this simple card.

I started off my card by by stamping the sentiment "hope is stronger than fear" in multiple colors of pink dye ink using a stamp positioner.

I adhered my 4" by 5"1/4" background to a pink, A2, top folding card.

I stamped "hope" from the Hope Ribbon stamp set with one of the pink's I used for the background on a heart that was left over from another project. I adhered the heart and used Glossy Accents over the sentiment to make it stand out.

Using another one of the pink ink's, I stamped another sentiment onto a strip of white cardstock. I cut it out and used foam adhesive to adhere it above the "hope."

I added some tiny hearts from my stash to adhere around the large heart and my card was done.

Here for You

Hi all, it's Vicki here today and it's Breast Cancer Awareness month, so I am creating a card for that, and to also remind you to get that mammogram. 

I started by using the Tin Roof Stencil for the background panel using pink and red ink.
I went on to stamp [Hope Ribbon Stamp set] and emboss the  ribbon on some pink card stock, using some pink embossing powder [from my stash].  I cut it out using the Ruffled Ribbon Die. I used a sentiment from the same set. To add some fun texture I added some pearls to the centers of all the tin roof pattern.  This card is complete.  Fortunately, it goes in my stash of cards - I don't need it. YAY!

That's it for me today.  If you want, you can use my code [below] to save 15% off your purchase including the sale items!

Breathe - We'll Get Through This Together!

Welcome back!  It's October and Breast Cancer Awareness month and also CAS-ual Friday Stamps birthday month!  We'll be sharing cards of hope and birthday wishes this month and I'm starting with this one... a card to let a friend know you're there for them.

I started by adding some pink clouds to a white cardstock panel using the Partly Cloudy stencil.

When the panel was filled up with clouds, I splattered some water and soaked up the extra water and then splattered some gold color shine over the top.  I layered the cloudy panel onto a pink base and then layered the two onto a white base.

Then I added some Glitz Glitter Gel through the Love Ribbon Stencil onto pink cardstock and when it was dry, I fussy cut it out.

I layered the ribbon onto the cloudy panel with foam tape and then cut the Breathe from white glitter paper using the Just Breathe die set and then twice more from white cardstock; stacked them together and popped them up over the ribbon.

Finally I stamped the sentiment from the Heart Ribbon Stamp set onto pink cardstock with Versamark and heat embossed it with White embossing powder.  A few sequins and done!

Thanks so much for stopping and hope you enjoyed it!  Come back soon for more CAS-ual Fridays Stamps inspiration!

Breast Cancer Awareness - My Story!

Hi everyone, it’s Michelle here today sharing a card I made for Breast Cancer Awareness month!

I am living proof of the importance of regular breast checks!  In October 2019 I got the news that threw me for six.  I had my regular mammogram which I was two months late having as I had been away and just put it off until after my holiday.  They found something that hadn’t been there in previous mammograms and called me back in to investigate. This certainly saved my life and long story short it was early stage but the very aggressive type.  I spent the next 9 months having treatment and so far so good!  Sadly I lost my sister to breast cancer in 2004 hence the regular mammograms.
I hope my story encourages you to have regular checks.
Early detection is the key and can save your life!

Now on to my card!  I used the Love Ribbon stencil with Catherine Pooler inks.  While the stencil was still in place I added some glitter paste which gave the little hearts some dimension and sparkle.
I die cut the “Just Breathe”  in white and black card stock and adhered them together to give that shadow effect.  I then adhered to the stenciled piece using liquid adhesive.

It's Time to Party-Stretching your Supplies

Hello everyone!! It is Nora here on the blog today with a Halloween card that I created with non-Halloween supplies!

I started off my card by spraying Distress Stain in green and purple Distress Mica Stain on a white panel measuring 4" by 5 1/4."

I wrapped some orange twine around the panel and adhered it to an A2 5 1/2" by 4 14"  white card base. I then adhered three squares that I had die cut out of scraps of pattern paper.

I set the card aside to work on my pumpkins. I used the Pinked Slimline small circle to die cut circles out of orange scraps of pattern paper. 

I then used the Swirls Stencil to mark faces on the pumpkins. I used enamel drops to fill the faces in. I did make a mistake on one pumpkin BUT I fixed it by just drawing the enamel out to make "lashes." 

While the dots dried, I die cut "stems" using the Heart Note Dies.  I just die cut specific pieces of the notes to use that I thought looked like stems. I adhered the "stems" onto the top of my pumpkins when the enamel dried. I used foam adhesive to adhere the three pumpkins to the black squares that were on the card front.

My last step was to find a sentiment. I didn't have one that said "Happy Halloween" so I decided to use the "it's time to party!" sentiment from Sassy Celebrations stamp set. It was the PERFECT size for my card. I stamped it with black ink onto a white paper strip. I used foam adhesive to adhere it to my card front, over the twine. I then tied a bow.

My card was complete and I personally LOVE how it came out. I will be sending it, with a box of goodies, to one of my cousins for Halloween.
