I am so excited to be included in the release of the Girlfriends Collection from CAS-ual Fridays that was first introduced in the Friendship Stamp of Approval Box by Catherine Pooler. CAS-ual Fridays is an awesome company with a great line of stamps and dies. I loved working with this collection!
This is the first card I made for this release I used the Girlfriend Stamp Set and the Curtis Background Stamp.
I wanted this card to have a faded, blended look so I used distress inks with these great stamps from CAS-ual Fridays. I used a stamping tool and inked just parts of the Curtis Background Stamp to get the different colors. I then stamped the sayings and friend from the Girlfriend Stamp Set using the same ink. I used some enamel dots to add a little texture to the card.
I also made two other cards using stamps and dies from this release.
I used the FRI-DIES Tag Buddies Die and the Girlfriend Stamp Set. The tag dies are so much fun and come in three sizes. I love using the tags on packages, too!
For this card, I used the FRI-DIES Friend die and cut it out of watercolor paper. I also cut it out of cardstock and applied silver foil to the "f" and gold to the "riend". After watercoloring the background, I used the in-lay technique and placed the letters (friend) into the watercolor paper. I remembered the saying I used from Girl Scouts. I printed it out on white cardstock, cut it out, layered it to black cardstock and used foam tape on the back. I then added a few sequins and it was finished.
I hope you enjoyed my cards and I know you will enjoy the rest of the Design Team's creations.
Michele from CAS-ual Fridays did an amazing job on these stamps and dies. A must-have for any card maker or scrapper! I have included pictures of these new items below along with links to where they can be found at Laura's Loft.
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great, crafty day!!!
