I've been sitting on some news for the past month that has been extremely hard to keep to myself. And finally I can now scream it from the rooftops. I'm a new Girl Friday for CAS-ual Fridays Stamps!! This is my first time being part of a company Design Team and my team members are such incredible designers. I am so grateful for Michele taking a chance on this little old gal from New Zealand!!
Michele is introducing all the Design Team members on the CAS-ual Fridays blog and she is offering a $50 gift certificate to one random comment left on the Design Team blogs. That's huge!! So if you haven't already, pop back to the blog and see who else is part of the team and leave them some love!!
I wanted to celebrate by making two cards for this post. This first card design popped into my head while playing with this tiny tag:
I started off by die-cutting the tag from the 'Tag Buddies' Fri Dies from three different paint chip colours so I could create an ombre effect. I added foam tape to the back of each tag and adhered them to the card front. Scissors were then used to cut any overhanging pieces from the card edge.
I then die-cut the 'Friend' Fri Die three times from white CS, glued them together and then adhered over the tags. After stamping the sentiment from the 'Girlfriend' stamp set in black, I glued it to the card, along with some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.
For my second card I decided to do some floral water colouring. I stamped the flower from the 'Wonderful Words' stamp set on some water colour CS and used Distress Inks to colour them in. After they had dried, I fussy cut them all out and adhered to the card front using double-sided tape and foam tape. I stamped the sentiment in black (from the same stamp set) and used Wink of Stella on the middle of each flower. Co-ordinating sequins (orange from Neat and Tangled, pink and yellow from Pretty Pink Posh) were added for a bit more shine.
I hope you'll join me on my CAS-ual Fridays journey and if I do persuade you to do some shopping, please don't hesitate to use my code 'SHONA2016' to save yourself some money while you shop. That way you can buy even more!!
Thank you everyone for all your support, I wouldn't be here without you. I'm so excited and can't wait for this adventure to start!!
Thanks so much
