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.

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:

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my first May BoBunny inspirational post.
Today I am going to share four cards made with the very same, new and just released Weekend Adventures collection.
Weekend Adventures is the most versatile collection. You can scrapbook all your outdoors adventures such as BBQ,hiking, picnic,road trips and just outdoor play. You can use it for any party theme that is connected with one of these activities. And you can make cute themed and most general cards using this collection products with all other new released BoBunny and Pentart products as I did making my totally different cards for this showcase.
The two cards here are made as my themed cards;
My two other cards were made as more general cards and can be used for more occasions.
Now lets see the techniques I used to make each single card.
Life is Sweet card is the simple card made with BoBunny Weekend Adventures 12*12'' cardstock, Double dots cardstock for matting, Noteworthy scalloped die cut as the front image and add ons of chipboards and one single layered chipboard.
This is a beginners' level card that can be made even by kids.
Congratulations card is the second non themed card and more complicated to make.
I used the same 12*12'' cardstocks with Double dot cardstock for matting and for die cutting and arranged multi layered card with add-ons of chipboards and layered chipboards.The sentiment was die cut and layered one over another for more interest.
And now let's see the themed cards.
The first themed card has a Mixed Media background that was made with BoBunny new stencil and Pentart new Stencil paste. When it was totally dry I added the die cut frame, a chipboard strip and arranged the chipboard sentiment over the die cut doily.
The last card is just Hello card made with different colors, but in the same way. Few background layers were made with patterned and Double dot cardstock; some die cuts were added over the front.
The edges were painted with new BoBunny Glitter paste and some chipboards were added as embellishments.

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my Sin City stamping tutorial.
This time I decided to make 4 ATC cards with the very same stamp set and very different techniques and to pick my favorite technique for the future use.
Here are all 4 ATC together.
Sin City stamps: Dandelion Wishes with Butterflies
White, black and Kraft cardstock
Black pigmented ink
Clear, colorful and white embossing powder
Clear embossing ink
Step by step instructions:
1. Make two white cardstock ATC cards. Stamp with the same stamp over both cards. Use black pigmented ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.
2. Use large acrylic block and mist it with 3 or 4 different mists.
3. Wipe the stamped ATC card over the misted block.
4. Stamp a few butterflies using Clear embossing ink and heat emboss them with a mix of colorful embossing powders and glitters.
Hand cut the butterflies.
5. Glue a couple of hand cut vellum stamped butterflies over the first card. Use stencil to add Gel Medium over the card.
6. Stamp the small words with Sin City stamps and hand cut one to add over the first finished ATC card.
Ink the edges of the card with paint or ink.
7. Mist the second white cardstock stamped card with three different mists directly over the card.
As you can see we had a different background look with this technique.
8. Use another stencil to add Gel Medium over the second card.
9. Glue the stamped vellum butterflies over the second card and add another stamped word.
11.Paint over the textured ATC card with Gelatos. Wipe the color with baby wipe and make kind of circles over the flowers.
12. Add some texture with stencil and white texture paste.
13. Ink the edges and glue two vellum butterflies. Glue the stamped words.
14. Stamp in the same way as on ATC #3 over Kraft cardstock.
15. Paint over and around the stamped images with acrylic paints.
16. Add a thin layer of Crackle Glaze over the card. Let the glaze dry.
17. Glue a butterfly and the stamped words.
So here all 4 ATC are together and to say a truth- I am not sure if I like one of them more then another.
I think that black is my favorite, but as you know we all like different things.
So just go and try each and every technique!
