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. 🙂


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 there. I’ve been inspired by Virginia’s View Challenge. This month the challenge is Dimension. I’ve been visiting blogs and looking at Pinterest a lot lately (well ALL THE TIME really LOL.) And I think this card is a mash up in my head of a bunch of different cards I’ve seen lately. 😉

So here it is,


I used foam tape and foam squares to get two different heights for the dahlias. And I just pushed up the sentiment banner while adhering it down so it would have that lovely bump in the middle like it was being blown by the wind. Instead of using patterned paper for the background, I used die cuts to give it that extra dimension. 😉

Hope you like it! I had a lot of fun making it!
