CAS-ual FRIDAYS/ Imagine Crafts Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to old and new visitors!  I am so excited to have you stop by my blog today for this amazing hop!!!  Hasn't the inspiration just been amazing?!

Now if you happened to stumble here with my blog then make sure you check out below where the hop starts so you don't miss a thing (or your chance to win the goodies). I am sharing several projects with you today, as I was having so much fun mixing products from these two awesome companies…





To create this set of cards I used the Kaleidacolor ink pads in Baby Powder and Pastel, as well as the Calm and Loving Stamp Set and Lovely Links die set from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps. The two white cards were made essentially the same way, just one uses the bolder Pastel colors. I then used the hearts that came out from the border dies and used them as embellishments on the cards. For the kraft card I used White pigment ink first and let that dry before going over the hearts with the Baby Powder Kaleidacolor Ink pad. When working with kraft and colored ink layering your card with white ink first will help the colors pop, rather than blend into the card stock.

This next card was created while I was just playing around with the ink pads…




To create this card I had used the Kaleidacolor Pastel Ink pad and swiped it across a clear stamping block I had. I then gave it a little spritz of water and stamped the block onto a white panel. I liked the fun design in created and decided to just go with it! I then stamped and die cut the flower from the Mon Ami Stamp Set and matching die set with Memento ink in Tuxedo Black. I was torn between coloring the flower in with matching colors, but in the end I decided I like the pop of the black and white against all of those bright colors ( I did add some Wink of Stella for a little sparkle though!). I then stamped my sentiment with Versafine Ink in Onyx Black. I trimmed the panel slightly smaller than the card front and added a strip of black and white stripped paper under it.

Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out my projects! To start at the beginning go to the Imagine Crafts Blog.  You can also find the link on the CAS-ual Fridays Blog.

If you are hopping along then you need to stop by the amazing Terre Fry next!!!

Happy Crafting/Hopping!

Lovely cards.

Mary Holshouser said...

It's amazing how changing the background of the base
makes such a difference. the varied ink choices and the
different edging on the side of the cards makes three
cards look totally unalike.
The second card is bold and bright - wonderful.
thanks for sharing.
