Birthday Inspiration with CAS-ual Fridays Stamps

Hello everybody. Happy Saturday!! Oh boy do I love the weekend!

Today it is my turn for inspiration on the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps blog. This month CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Blog is going pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It is also CAS-ual Fridays birthday. In honor of this birthday, I created a birthday card.


I started off this card by using the largest die from the "Tag Buddies" Fri-dies to die cut a white tag. I then misted the tag with green and pink mist spray. I stamped borders from "Holly Jolly Borders" in black and colored them in with Copic Markers. After the borders were dry, I adhered them to the tag.


I then used foam adhesive to adhere black strips on the tag that I had stamped with CAS-ual Fridays "Shenanigans" set and embossed in white.


I set this aside decided to try to ink blend on a piece of colored card stock with two different pink Distress Inks. It was not as easy to do as on a piece of white Bristol but it was kind of fun to try.


I used foam behind the tag when I adhered it to the card. I then sprinkled silver stars that I had cut with the "Fun-Fetti" Fri-dies. My last step was to adhere sequins in pink around the stars, adding some Stickles over the top.

Well that is all from me today. Thank you so much for stopping by and remember to use my code for some shopping fun at the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps store. Have a wonderful day!!
