CAS-ual Fridays #79--Winter Blues


Hooray!  The new release from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps is finally here!  I've been having a ball with these holiday stamps, and there's more inspiration to come from all of the Girl Fridays over the next few weeks.  You won't want to miss any of it!

This week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge is Winter Blues:  create a winter themed project using blue.  You definitely don't have to twist my arm to do that!  *smile*


The Girl Fridays are using images and sentiments from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps new release, but you are welcome to use any stamps for the challenge.

I decided to work with Snowflake Greetings, which has several sentiments that I absolutely adore.  I pulled out my Stampin' Up! inks in Midnight Muse, Not Quite Navy, and Baja Breeze and stamped the left edge of my card randomly with different snowflakes from the set.

I stamped the sentiment onto a white panel before adding some texture with an impression plate, then stitched the edge and popped it up with foam dots.  A few clear gems add a touch of sparkle.

Cardstock:  WPlus9 Design Studio (White)
Stamps:  CAS-ual Fridays Stamps (Snowflake Greetings)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Midnight Muse, Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze)
Tools:  Papertrey Ink (Linen & Canvas impression plate), corner rounder
Accessories:  thread, gems

I especially love those dainty little flakes, don't you?

You could win some of the new stamps for yourself just by playing along in this week's challenge, so what are you waiting for?  :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Enjoy your Friday!
