I started with the adorable SOMEBUNNY Stamp Set and stamped the balloons on colored cardstock, the sentiment on a light gray cardstock using Versafine Onyx Black Ink, and that adorable bunny is stamped on #80 Neenah Coverstock, colored with Prisma Pencils and Copics. I die-cut the bunny and balloons using the coordinating dies, BUNNY Fri-Dies. I embossed a piece of #80 Neenah coverstock with clouds, added a silver thread to the balloons, adhered all the pieces using 3D mounting foam to the cloud embossed card panel, finishing off with clear sequins and adhere this to a 4.25″ x 5.5″ card base cut from #110 Neenah Coverstock
I created the second card using an “older” die from CAS-ual Fridays, any link die would work. Using #80 Neenah coverstock I do partial die-cutting with the link die, I die-cut orange, pink, turquoise, and black cardstock using the same die. Using Versafine Onyx Black Ink I stamped the sentiment from the WHOLE SHEBANG Stamp Set onto the cover stock I partially die-cut. Using 3D mounting foam I alternate the colored cardstock in the link die and finish off with matching enamel dots. I adhere this to a 4.25″ x 5.5″ card base cut from #110 Neenah Coverstock
For the third card, I stamped those cute birds from the LITTLE BIRDIES Stamp Set on #80 Neenah Cover stock using Memento Ink Tuxedo Black and colored with COPICS and added a little shimmer with a Nuvo Shimmer Pen. Using the coordinating dies, BIRDIE Fri-Dies, I die-cut the birds. Stamped the sentiment using Memento Ink London Fog onto #80 Neenah Coverstock popped this panel up off a 4.25″ x 5.5″ card base cut from #110 Neenah Coverstock using fun foam, added the birds and second sentiment (stamped on a banner) using 3D mounting foam, finished off with enamel dots.
Notice a theme here? Yes, all three cards were created using the colors from the CAS-ual Fridays packaging!
As always, thanks for joining me and have fun. Please be sure to hop over to the CAS-ual Fridays Blog and wish Michelle a very Happy Birthday!
