CAS-ual Fridays Stamps - Girl Friday post for August #2

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!

Take care


  1. You had to know I'd love this card. Has so much personality. So clever using the balloon for the embossed circles. And the shiny black sentiment adds real pizzazz.

  2. What a stunner Shona - love the contrasts of the yellow and black, and your use of the stamp is fascinating - a wonderful card!
