Hi everyone!! Hopefully your having warmer weather than I am while typing this post. Its absolutely freezing in my little craft corner and I'm starting to lose feeling in my fingers!!
I've got a card to share which is my second CAS-ual Fridays Stamps card for the month of August. You get me 3x this month, so I hope your not sick of me yet!!
For this card I wanted to try using a stamp set differently. Not having a massive craft shopping budget I love to find ways to stretch the usage of my stamps and dies:
Why don't I use yellow more often? One of my closest friends is obsessed with yellow, so this one is for her!!
I started off by cutting a panel of yellow CS and adhering to the card front. I then die-cut two circles of white CS using the 'Ornament Tag Fri-dies'. I then grabbed the hot-air balloon image from the 'Floating' stamp set, masked the strings with washi tape and stamped with Versamark ink. I was then able to heat emboss with WOW Embossing Powder 'Pastel Glacier Mint'. These were popped on the card front with foam tape.
I die-cut the 'friend' from the 'Sweet Friend Fri-dies' 3x from black CS, glued them together and then to the card front. I also added lashings of Glossy Accents. I then white heat embossed the sentiment from 'Somebunny' and glue to the card, along with Neat and Tangled sequins.
I hope this has given you some ideas how how to stretch other stamp sets you have. And if your tempted to purchase any of the products I used, don't forget to use my special code to save yourself some money!!
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope when the weekend finally rolls around for you, its filled with sunshine and lots of fun!
