Hi All, it's Vicki here today.  Did you know that CAS-ual Fridays has been around for 9 years!  That is so awesome for this industry 😀.  I have had the pleasure of creating for CFS since March 2016!  5+ years.  I like that too.  In honor, today I made a birthday card.

I used the [so fun] Pop Clink Fizz stamp set for the background --[I really love these glasses], and used a sentiment from [my favorite] Shenanigans.  [Totally love the mixed font in this set]

To add a pop of color and some fun, I used the balloon die from Bunny Dies. I added some Glossy Accent to make the balloons shiny, and black thread for the balloon strings.

I have a few birthdays this month, so this will be going to someone -- girl or guy, this card works!

No Matter How Old...

Hello Crafty Friends!! 

It is Nora here from A Creative Touch with a fun birthday card honoring CAS-ual Fridays NINTH Birthday!!! 

Stamps Used: Frankly'isms

I started off this card by using using the Falling Leaves Stencil Distress Ink. 

Instead of using it as a stencil, I added color to the actual stencil, spritzed it with water and then smooshed my paper onto the stencil. When it was dry, I added some stamping using the Frankly'ism stamp set.

I cut it down my stenciled panel and added it to purple, A2, top folding card base. I added some white circles under the my panel to create a partial "scallop" border that I had die cut using the Pinked Slimline Dies

I then stamped a sentiment from Frankly'ism on a white circle with purple ink. 

I adhered it over a purple scalloped circle that I die cut using the Pinked Slimline Dies using foam adhesive. 

I created an inner white panel to be adhered inside the card with a matching sentiment to the one on the front of my card.

My finishing touch was to adhere some sequins to the card front.

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!

We have a special birthday sale!  Have fun!

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!
