CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #170 - No Dies Allowed




It is very unusual for me to NOT use dies when making my cards, so this was a bit of a challenge for me!!


I used my Color Box cat's eye inks to create the blended background on the card.
I then stamped the flower petals using Stampin' Up 'create a flower' stamps and VersaMark Watermark Stamp pad, along with a random sentiment I found in my stash!
I heat embossed the petals and sentiment using white embossing powder.
A super simple but effective card.

I am entering this card into the current challenge on the CAS-ual Fridays challenge blog.

Thanks for looking.
Happy crafting :)

Our theme at Cute Card Thursday this week is 'Spring Fever'. 
As always, we welcome your own interpretation. 

I used this adorable clear stamp set from Whimsy Stamps 'Hello Spring Birds' by Krista Heij-Barber.

I colored the image using my prismacolor pencils.
The sentiment and accents are from the 'Distant Friends' clear stamp set.
I used the circle die set from Whimsy Stamps to create the 'window' and popped this up over the image.

CAS-ual Fridays #169 - Off the Edge challenge

My cards are becoming more and more CAS (clean & simple) in style. My fellow DT member at Whimsy Stamps is also a member of the DT on the CAS-ual Fridays blog and I have been admiring her cards for a while now. I decided to take the leap and join in the challenge this time round!


I used this image from Bugaboo Stamps - 'Teddy Bear Block Trio' - perfect for the challenge theme and a little girl's birthday I have coming up!


I colored the image using my prismacolor pencils.
The sentiment is from desert diva's blog.
The papers are from my stash.
A super simple but effective card.

Whimsy Stamps Clear Stamp Sneak Peek!

It's Mother's Day soon in the UK so I needed to get a card made and in the mail!

I used the soon-to-be released Clear Stamp Set 'Mother Love' from Whimsy Stamps to make a card for my Mum.

I used one of the flower stamps to stamp a repeated pattern for the centre panel and added the sentiment to the back panel.
I love the CAS style of this card - super easy to do with this stamp set.



Be sure to keep a look out for the new release on Wednesday 15th March - so many super fun stamps, sentiments and dies this month.

Cute Card Thursday - For Mothers/Ladies

Our theme at Cute Card Thursday this week is 'For Mothers/Ladies'. 
As always, we welcome your own interpretation. 

The image I chose this month from All Dressed Up Stamps is 'Hearts & Bows'.
There are SO many different images within this set, the possibilities are endless.


I printed the image out onto the patterned cardstock and 'popped' it up on pop dots. 
The brush script lettering is from Whimsy Stamps, using their brush script alphabet dies.
I used papers from My Mind's Eye,  and added some extra little hearts using a Martha Stewart punch.

Whimsy Stamps March Digital Release

Welcome to Day 3 of March's release of 
Digital Stamps at the Whimsy Stamps store!


I used the digital sentiment set Bugs Life 1 as the basis for this card.


I used my Silhouette Studio to highlight the different images I wanted to use, and placed and sized them how I wanted. The jar and sentiment were then printed out directly onto the colored cardstock. I printed out the lid for the jar onto a separate piece of grey cardstock which I then fussy cut and 'popped up'.

The papers are from My Mind's Eye, and the hearts were punched out with a Martha Stewart punch. A little bakers twine finishes the card off.

As always, we welcome your own interpretation. 

I used this adorable rubber stamp from Whimsy Stamps 



I colored the image using my prismacolor pencils, and then fussy cut it out. I wanted to do a CAS style card with this image. I used a clear sentiment from the Scripty Occasions set - I actually cut the stamp up so that I could arrange it differently!
