CAS-ual Fridays Stamps "Mon Ami" Stamp Set with Prima Oil Pastels

Hi everyone!! Today it is my turn for a little CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Inspiration on their blog today. I chose to use the "Mon Ami" stamp and die set to make a pretty card.


I started off by heat embossing the flowers from "Mon Ami"stamp set in white on watercolor paper and then die cutting the flowers out with their matching die. I "colored" on the flowers using two different purple pastel oils from Prima. I used a watercolor brush and water to blend them together.


While the flowers were drying, I cut a piece of patterned paper into a 4" by 5 1/4" panel and used my score board to score some lines at random intervals. I adhered the scored paper onto a "Soft Stone" A2, top folding card.


I die cut a tag using the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps "Tag Buddies Fri-Dies" to die cut a tag out of gray scrap paper. I adhered it onto the card front using foam adhesive. I originally was going to tie a silver bow at the top of the tag but decided to make a thread nest instead. I adhered the dried flowers over the nest with foam adhesive and added some Silver Stickles for the flower centers.


I then used foam adhesive to mount a sentiment strip that I had stamped with the same set. The last step was to add a few sequins around the tag.

I hope you enjoyed this card today. It was the first time I had used this stamp set and the oil pastels. I will be using both again soon as I love how this came out!!
