CAS-ual friday challenge (CFC 125: in a word)
Hey guys! Ok so I mailed out Ashley's birthday gift. When it arrives to her I will post some pictures (EXCITEMENT!)
As we all know I'm a HUGE fan for Lawn Fawn, if I had more money I wold fo'seriousness own every stamp set. I look forward to buying some dies for some sets I already own now that I have my fancy letterpress/die cutting machine. But I am OVER THE MOON for the images they have posted the over the last week of their upcoming paper set (Hello Sunshine) and the like 3-4 stamp sets they showed. OH MY GOSH guys I am so excited it's not even funny.
Other than you guys should see the sneak peeks that Lawn Fawn has posted I will continue with the CAS-ual Friday Challenge's. I skipped on of the CAS-ual Friday Challenge's the new year one bc I was just uninspired but there were some super cute cards posted. This next challenge is like the last one a two week challenge more than likely bc everyone is still trying to get back into a routine after the holiday season. I really feel inspired by this challenge and I am sure over the next two weeks I will be doing a few more.
The current challenge is...
Here is my first card
This card is really cute and I am in love with it. I could not find my Tombow Mono glue I'm so upset about that it's in my bedroom somewhere I was laying in bed and crafting one night last month and lost it *SAD* So, I used my Elmer's No Wrinkle glue, which here in the picture is still a little wet so it looks wrinkly to me but as it drys it straightens out and looks AMAZING!
My card is inspired by a card I seen on the Lawn Fawn YouTube channel
I have also seen a few other's doing this negative dies lately I was going to link them all but of course the only one I could find is the Lawn Fawn video. Unfortunately, for me I don't have any letter dies yet to do this. So what I did was take white card stock as a base I used some fancy glittery paper from my dear friends Sara, Miguel and Roy. Then took some white computer paper (as we all know I love super lots) I measured it all out on the reverse side drew some letters backwards and then took my x-acto knife and carefully cut them out then glued it all down. If I do say so my self, it looks very well done and I love it. On the inside of the card I put some white computer paper to one give more stability and if someone writes in sharpie or something it doesnt bleed through so I just took a silver sharpie and a ruler and made some lines. I wanted to keep the inside really simple but I could not leave it blank I hate blank cards on the inside. On the back I did kinda the same thing on white computer paper and just put my mark on it and I could not get that one side to stay down but it's ok it's hand made and after 5 minutes of trying I gave up lol
