CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Girlfriend – Hey There Friend

Hey guys! Today I have another card for you featuring the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Girlfriend set. I love a card with a bold sentiment and this stamp set is perfect for that! I am also playing along with the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #180 where it’s all about friendship.

To make my card, I started with a 4 1/2″ x 3 1/4″ piece of white cardstock and using my MISTI I stamped the bold “friend” and smaller “hey there” in black ink. I used an acrylic block to stamp the bold flower in a random pattern around the border, overlapping the edge of the cardstock.

I would normally have colored the flowers in with Copic Markers but my daughter’s Prismacolor Pencils were lying out so I decided to give them a try. I originally thought that colored pencils would be easier than Copics…but for me they will definitely take some practice.

When I was finished coloring, I mounted the white cardstock onto a piece of Tiffany Blue cardstock, mounted this onto a piece of black cardstock and then mounted the entire card front to an A2 card base.

Cardstock Measurements:

  • White (top) layer: 4 1/2″ x 3 1/4″
  • Tiffany Blue: 4 3/4″ x 3 1/2″
  • Black: 5 1/4″ x 4″
  • Card Base: A2 (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ – folded measurement)

CAS-ual Fridays Stamps & CardMaker Blog Hop

Hey Guys! Happy Friday and welcome to the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps & CardMaker Magazine Blog Hop!

If you arrived here from Shona Chambers’ blog then you’re on the right track. If you found your way here on your own then you might want to head to the CardMaker blog and start from the begining — ending up at the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Blog where they are hosting a giveaway of 4 prize packages, each with a value over $40.  Can you say Fri-YAY!

I’ve been playing with the CAS-ual Fridays Girlfriend stamp set and Friendly Flowers Fri-dies. What a sweet stamp set! I love the font! And some of the phrases — well you just have to smile!

For my card I used the large “love ya” and paired it with the smaller “girlfriend” phrase. I stamped them in black ink using my MISTI.

TIP:  The MISTI was really helpful with the larger “love ya” sentiment. I sometimes have trouble getting a crisp and complete stamped image especially with larger stamps. With the MISTI I was able to simply stamp “love ya” a second time in the same place and ended up with a nice solid image.

I used the Fri-dies to cut out an assortment of flower pieces in pink, black and white. I love how all of the flower pieces can be stacked and combined to create a whole new variety of flowers.

After I attached the die cut flowers, I used the little spokey flower stamp to fill in some of the white space and create a nice flow across my card.

Hope you enjoyed your visit! Next up on the hop is Vicki Dutcher @ All I Do is Stamp. If you get lost along the hop you can find a complete list below and at the CardMaker blog.
