Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my new Prickley Pear Rubber stamps inspiration.
This card was made for lace theme and I used Papericious cardstock that was actually laced and added wedding Prickley pear images.
The stamped images were heat embossed with clear embossing powders and hand cut. The sentiment was stamped with smaller same swans image in the same way.
I used stamps from Heart Key Crown clear stamps set for sentiment spot and Love Swans red rubber stamp for the main image.
Lace bow was added on the left with some paper flowers over it.

I am not a real " themed parties person". Usually our party is all about food and drinks and some simple decorations.
But when I have a mood and great paper supplies I am more than happy to make a whole line of party decorations. And with BoBunny new Down by the Sea collection this was amazing fun to make such
As you can see I made the main banner (close- up shown later in this post).
I added a few napkin rings (just the sample; you need to make much more for the real party). I also made the samples of lovely place cards and two large toppers that can be used for the cake or for the flowers central piece or just for any purpose .
The toppers were made with the circle hand cut base and Mandala die cut. Then the chipboard hand cut flag was added and covered with another patterned cardstock from this delicious collection.The flag was added to Mandala with BoBunny Aqua brads.
One of the toppers was finished with a layered chipboard and second with cardstock cut.
The napkin rings were die cut with new Darling Doily die from the patterned Down by the Sea cardstock and this cardstock is just perfect as you can cut 9 different Mermaids from one single cardstock sheet and to make 9 napkin rings. I added the die cut doilies over the circle die cut from Mystical cardstock.
The place cards were made from a solid piece of Plunge cardstock with Sweetheart die cut and then the die cut piece was glued over the negative space with some gap as shown.
I added a piece of chipboard strip over each card and then one of the Fancy tags die cuts was added as the place for the name.
And now for some close- ups of the banner.
I hand cut the huge flags and added the second and the third flag layers over the basic layer.
The edges were glittered with the new Seafoam Glitter paste and the second layer edges were painted with new Pentart Delicate Dark gold acrylic paint.
Some texture was added on this flag with new Summer Days stencil (waves) and Ice Flower Pentart stencil paste.
Then some chipboards and Noteworthy die cuts were added over the piece.
The second flag was made in the same way around the edges. I added some Turquoise Glitter paste with my favorite BoBunny dotted stencil and then added the large chipboard frame and saying,
The third and central flag was made as a shaker piece and you can see the inside sequins and beads under the transparency.Some Ice Flower paste dots were added on the external flag.
The next piece was stencilled in the same way with Seafoam Glitter paste and chipboard piece were added to embellish this part of my banner.
The last piece was made in the same way as the first one using Flower Fun stencil to add the dimension.

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to our CAS- ual stamps Sketch challenge.
This pretty sketch is just a starting point. You can do whatever you wish with it and as you can see you don't need to use hearts. For example I made it with punched circles.
To make this card I used Modern Petals stamp set. I stamped the largest border and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. Then 8 circles were punched and layered over the bigger punched black cardstock circles.
One last circle got this #1 sticker and I made the sentiment using RAD 2 stamp set. This set is the perfect set for so many different sentiment you can build while making your cards or other projects.
There are no genre restrictions for this challenge. Link up your clean and simple designs or layer it on -- the choice is yours. Make sure to link back to this blog post and include the graphic below in your post for consideration of being chosen a winner.
What are your playing for? 10 winning entries will be highlighted on this blog each Thursday before a new challenge is set to go live the next day. In addition, Michele has generously offered up a $25 gift certificate to the overall winner at CAS-ual Friday stamps. And if that weren't enough, if the chosen winner has used CAS-ual Friday stamps and/or dies as the main focus in the card, that gift certificate will increase to $50.

Hello my dear friends and welcome to my new card Mixed Media tutorial!
Today I am going to share a totally different project. This time I am going tom show you how you can use Art Anthology products to make two clean and simple cards using the very same stamp, two different Art Anthology stencils and Art Anthology paints and colorations.
As you can see these cards are made with the same stamped sentiment, but them the cardstock, colors and mediums made them totally different.
Here are the cards again:

Then it was hand cut and glued over the arranged paper layers.
The small sentiment was stamped on the bottom of the card.
The die cut heart was stamped and then die cut with PPRS die and glued near the main image.
The chipboard oval frame was painted with white acrylic and red glitter was randomly added over the frame.

Hello my dear crafty friends!
Irit from Irit Shalom designs is here today and I am going to share my easy tutorial made with the most gorgeous, just released Whimsical collection.
This time I made a big wooden altered printers' tray (old piece from 7 Gypsies, but you can find the cheap version in any craft shop).
This tray contains 12 ATC size pieces and I decided to use three photos and to make all other 9 pieces as embellished cards and then to embellish over the tray for more interest.
The tray was already painted in dirty white color and I didn't change it.
First I am going to show you the whole altered project and then I made the step by step tutorial for you to use.
The side view of the tray shows the layers and the over the tray embellishments.
Some corners were embellished with new Papericious fabric flowers and new Papericious chipboards.
This is a view of another over the tray embellishments cluster:
