Clean and Simple using Mon Ami

Hello, it's Michelle here today sharing a few clean and simple cards using the Mon Ami Stamp set.

It's no secret I love making CAS cards but sometimes I think maybe they are too CAS!  Is that possible!!   So I made a second one.

For my first card I stamped the flower and colored it in with alcohol markers.  I die cut it using the Mon Ami Fleur Die.  I stamped the sentiment and adhered the flower with foam tape.  I adhered the card panel onto a top folding card base with some more foam tape.   Now in my opinion that is a super CAS card.


For my second card I stepped it up a bit but still kept is fairly CAS.  This time I added some leaves to the stem and a little strip of striped paper along the bottom.  I also adhered three clear dew drops.



Here they are side by side.  Which do you prefer?

Sorry for Your Loss-A Pet Sympathy Card

Hello Crafty Friends!! It is Nora here from A Creative Touch with a simple pet sympathy card.


I started off my card by using the paw print heart from the Pawsome Stencil on a rectangle shaped scrap of red cardstock. 


I actually used Fired Brick Distress Ink over my stencil but it wound up looking black after I covered it with a clear sparkle pen and some Glossy Accents. I decided I liked it this way and then used foam adhesive to adhere it to a black frame.


I adhered the framed stencil to my card and stamped a sentiment from the Rainbow Bridge stamp set in black dye ink. 


Using paw prints from Rainbow Bridge, I stamped a trio with red ink above and below the sentiment. I then covered them with a clear shimmer pen and some Glossy Accents. My card was complete!!


 I want to thank you for taking the time to stop by today. Be sure to stop by the CAS-ual Fridays Blog to see some more inspiration by the other designers. The CAS-Fridays Shop has some fabulous sets to choose from. Use my code NORASENTME to get an extra 15% off your total order-even SALE items!!

A Spooky Halloween Slimline


I have a fun Halloween Slimline for you today using a cool Gel Print background I created using the Chunky Chevron Stencil.


I stamped the webs from the Spooky stamp set in Versamark onto the corners of the gel print panel I die cut using the smaller slimline die from the Pinked Slimline Dies and heat embossed with some black glitter embossing powder.  Then I layered that base onto a piece of black cardstock I cut 1/8" larger than the gel print panel and then die cut the pinked slimline in white and added the panel to that.  Then I splattered some Purple Distress Oxide spray and watered down black acrylic paint over the top.


I heat embossed and cut the Boo sentiment and a couple spiders from the Spooky set onto white cardstock and popped them up onto the card.  I splattered these also and added Nuvo drops to the spiders' eyes.

That's me for today!  I hope you enjoyed it and come again soon for more CAS-ual Fridays Stamps inspiration!

Make A Wish

Hi All - it's Vicki here today from All I Do Is Stamp.  Today you get a dual treat - 2 cards.  I'll explain why later on.

I started with the Bubbly Stencil and a full card panel.  When I went to stamp the sentiment, I forgot to reposition the panel [in my MISTI] yeah, that didn't line up.  So, I cut out the "bad" part and used the good in a split layout and this time, I remembered to reposition the card base. WA LA - finished after I added a couple of Heart Note Dies.

==========================================

Before I had made the previous card, I went on to make this 2nd one. [That was before I decided to save that first panel ;)]

Once again, I started with the Bubbly Stencil and sponged on 3 oxide ink colors.  Using the champagne glass from the Pop Fizz Click stamp set [with matching dies], I cut and stamped the shape on vellum.

I adhered the glass to the card panel, and then stamped and embossed the sentiment from Shenanigans stamp set.

My final step was to add a few sequins, and this 2nd card is complete.

I hope you enjoyed your dual treat today.  I did use affiliated links [at no additional cost to you] in this post. [Just FYI].  See you in a couple of weeks with my 2nd post of the month.

Oh right!  Don't forget to use my code [below] to save 15% off your purchase.

Spooky!

Hello, it’s Michelle here today with some Halloween cards.
I must admit I have never made a Halloween card in my life!
This Spooky stamp set is so much fun I couldn’t stop at just one and I can see myself making many more. 
Halloween isn’t that big down here in Australia but it seems to be getting more popular each year especially with the younger generation.  I do have a few friends that like to join in on the fun so I will be sending these cards to them.

I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored in with alcohol markers.  I added some dots to the letters with a white gel pen and I put a smile on the spiders faces on the Spooky card!
How cute are those spiders!
