Happy Sunday! 

Have I really not posted since November 6?! 
Sheesh, what a deadbeat! :(

CAS-ual Fridays & CAS-ual Chic Challenges: Precious Metals

Happy Challenge Time!

We're into Precious Metals this month at the CAS-ual Chic Challenge #05 and the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #145

For my CAS-ual Chic card above, I used the sentiment from the CAS-ual Fridays Lovely Greetings set and the little, multi-heart stamp from Calm and Loving. I made a heart shape by stamping the little multi heart image in Versamark around a heart die-cut from the Heart Board Fri-Dies (pretty sure a "freehand" heart would not have turned out so wel!), then embossed it in silver. I used the Fun-Fetti Fri-Dies to make little hearts from teal metal cardstock to fill in my empty spots and complete the heart shape. Got my "precious metal" in that way, too! *wink* I clear embossed the sentiment, then did a little watercoloring over top. A metal paperclip with some dyed ribbon and sequin trim added a little bling. 

For my CAS-ual Fridays card with a CAS look, I used the "Blessings" die from the Noel Fri-Dies (I'm addicted to it!), and laid it on top of watercolor paper, then sprayed Teal mist over it. I embossed a sentiment in black from the Calm and Gentle stamp set, added some black ink splotches, washi tape, and a teal metal heart from Jenni Bowlin. 

Head over to the challenges and play along with us! 

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs & happy stamping!

CAS-ual Fridays Stamps: Merry Tree!

Happy Wednesday!

I'm up today on the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps blog, and I was feeling merry!

I used the long swoosh from the Breathe stamp set and the new Noel Fri-Dies.
I LOVE to die cut sentiments!
It was so quick and easy! 
I finished it off with some jingle bells and a ribbon bow.

Are you feeling Merry too?! 

Thanks for stopping by! Hugs & happy stamping!
