Happy Friday friends. It's time for a new challenge at CAS-ual Fridays. This time, the challenge is to make gift tags. I've made a trio of tags using lots of fun goodies from CAS-ual Fridays.

I first started by die cutting my tags using the Tag Buddies die collection. I love the shape of these tags. I then did a bit of ink blending on each of the tags in an ombre fashion. I then added some water droplets over my ink blending for a fun effect. After everything was dry, I stamped the sentiments. Aren't these absolutely gorgeous? It does look like these have been retired but Michele has a new stamp set, Snowy Sayings, with similar sentiments and feel to it.  I then added some other touches in the same silver ink -- these images come from the Bold Wishes set. Some twine at the top of the card finish these off.

Here's the challenge graphic. And remember that one winner will be chosen to win a $25 gift certificate to CAS-ual Friday Stamps and if that winner has used CAS-ual Fridays Stamps and/or dies predominantly in the winning entry, the gift certificate increases to a whopping $50!!

Here are links to my teammates blogs. I'm sure they would love it if you paid them a visit.  And a big thank you to each of you for your visit to my blog -- means the world.

Stitched Daisies for Frantic Stamper

Thursday, July 28, 2016

I have another card to share using some goodies from Frantic Stamper. I started by taking my card panel and running it through my Big Shot multiple times using the Stitched Daisy Pair dies.

I then added lots of small pieces of foam tape to that panel and then added it to my card base. I just love the look of this card with the stitching details, the dimension and the multiple cut outs of the daisy.

A sentiment and some gold enamel dots finish off the card. I'll be back here tomorrow -- hope to see you back again.

Happy Birthday for Clearly Whimsy Stamps

Wednesday, July 27, 2016

Welcome friends. I have a fun birthday slider card to share with you today using some fun products from Clearly Whimsy Stamps.

I first did some ink blending using some masking tape to create my grass and sky portions of the card. I then die cut one of the dies from the new Slip n' Slide die collection for my little skunk to slide along on. I stamped my sentiment and then a couple of mushrooms. It was then time to stamp and die cut my skunk from the Lil' Stinker set. I added a disc on the back to create the movement for my skunk along the track. The front card panel is popped up on foam tape to allow for room for the slider mechanism.

I'm excited to use some of the other fun slider dies in the Slip n' Slide die collection as I think they will make super fun cards.  Thanks for your visit!

Hugs for Frantic Stamper

My card today features the fun Retro Daises dies from Frantic Stamper. I die cut two of the dies from a piece of white card stock and then used the negative piece to use as a stencil.  From there, I sponged on some various distress inks in blues and greens.

I added the sentiment from a Lawn Fawn wooden word and some fun heart enamel dots.

Thanks for stopping by. Crafty hugs!
