CAS-ual Fridays: First Challenge!

If you are looking for this week's Playing in Paradise challenge post, please scroll down... (It also happens to work for this CAS-ual Fridays challenge!)

Today is CAS-ual Fridays' first challenge! I've been really looking forward to this since I already admire so many of the new Design Team members! The challenge is to use text on a CAS creation.

I have to say that this type of challenge is something I should participate in regularly... It was so quick and painless! I think I put too much pressure on myself when I make cards...


I've been waiting for just such a perfect time to pull out my Hero Arts My Type stamp set (isn't that CAS-ual Fridays graphic perfect?!). I stamped the typewriter first and then masked it off to stamp the strip of text in Versamark ink. I heat embossed with clear powder. I paper-pieced the page in the typewriter and then added rhinestones.


{Supplies--all Papertrey Ink unless noted}
  • Cardstock: Sweet Blush, Stamper's Select White
  • Stamps: My Type (Hero Arts), Background Basics: Text Style II
  • Ink: Raspberry Fizz, Versamark (Tsukineko)
  • Other Tools: clear embossing powder (Filigree), rhinestones (dollar store), Corner Chomper (We R Memory Keepers)

I LOVE the bling in the sentiment-clever and creative! Your card turned out wonderful-the pink is just delightful :) We're so happy you got texty with us for our first CAS-ual Fridays challenge!!

I was going to say the same thing as Michele, the bling in the sentiment is the first thing I noticed and I said Oh that's Cool right away. Love the pink! So happy that you are geared up to play more with Cas-ual Fridays too!

Oh Dana, I hope you don't think I copied you. I always make my cards BEFORE I look at the other entries. I guess I'll just have to say great minds think alike! BTW I LOVE your card and the pinks and the bling!
