CAS-ual Fridays

Wow. It’s been quite awhile since I joined in with a CAS-ual Friday challenge. But, I was inspired this week so here we go. πŸ™‚

When I saw the prompt, I was reminded of a technique where you first stamp in white on kraft, and then you stamp color over it to give it a bit of shadow and add dimension to your card. I have never figured out the name of this technique, so if you know it, drop me a comment, LOL. Here is my card,

The Mini Blooms set from Papertrey Ink is perfect for this because it has a big corner stamp that you can stamp all at once with the white, and then individual stamps that match so you can stamp over the white in color. And a bunch of different colors at that! This card was really fun to make!

Hope you like it!

Hello again today! I have another card I made a couple days ago for the CAS-ual Fridays Shades of Gray Challenge πŸ™‚

cfc129Here is my card,

22I used a scrap sheet of Stamper’s Select White paper and then my trusty blank CD case to stamp on some Smokey Shadow ink to use as water color. Then, I took a paint brush and water and just dabbed on the ink making some places darker with less water and lighter with more water. I didn’t use brush strokes, I simply dabbed up and down like I was dipping a chip in dip…does that make sense? LOL! Then I used my Wonderful Words: Hello Die to die cut the sentiment…added a little Heidi Swapp Tinsel Color Shine Spray to the background, a strip of DP to ground the sentiment and some enamel dots for good measure πŸ™‚

Hope you like it!

It’s time for another CAS-ual Fridays Challenge. This challenge,

cfc127is really fun. I opted to go subtle with this one, but I may do another card later…I’m formulating an idea in my head, but we will see if I actually get time to sit down and create it πŸ™‚ Here is my subtle over the edge,

4The leopard print panel goes off the edge slightly on either side. I find I do this a lot, the over the edge bit. It just gives the card a little something extra without really doing a WHOLE lot. You know? LOL.

Hope you like it!

Here is my card:

38I was actually trying a different technique (embossing w/ die cuts) and I just could not get it to work in my BigKick. 😦 Oh well, I think I salvaged my die cut pretty well though. I ended up really liking this card. πŸ™‚

I’m back again today to share the card I made for CAS-ual Friday’s She’s Krafty and She’s Just My Type challenge! How fun! Here is my take,

22I used my “Keep Calm and Carry On” washi tape for the text and my card base is Kraft. πŸ™‚ I got the inspiration for the card layout from this card I found on Pinterest.

I’m not usually a big collage person as far as my own cards go. I love that style, I’m just not great at it, LOL. But, I’m pretty pleased with out this one turned out. I think I really like it! πŸ™‚

Hope you like it too!
