Hi all, Happy Easter! Ttoday's my day on the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps blog to showcase cards made with Michele's really awesome stamps. They inspired me to make quite a few, so I'll get right to it ...
First up is a card that uses the "mazing" portion of "ah-mazing" in Exclamations.
I found a web site that has a printable maze for every capital letter. How fun is that for a little person card? They can do some "mazing" of their own right on the card. I resized the A and H and printed a bunch of card bases out. Then the fun began.
I cut out a mask and played around with blending the Hero Arts neon inks.
You've got a straightforward, solid color on each letter,
a vertical ombre effect on the letters and sentiment,
a splotchy rainbow,
a diagonal ombre rainbow (Moxie Fab ombre challenge),
black & white with a gradient sentiment,
and black & white with vertical edging.
SO EASY to print these out, stamp the "mazing" and do minimal decoration to the rest of the card. My 5 year-old loved doing the mazes in my "reject" pile. These would be great for a birthday, congrats, any special occasion you're excited about.
The next card uses some old bases I punched out maybe 5-10 years ago, and the brand spankin' new Amazeballs set.
I slid the U through the hole in the R, and adhered it to the top of the window. This lets the glittery R dangle freely, and sparkle even more as you open it. U R Amazeballs. The background has some amazeballs colored with alcohol markers.
This next feature shows a card I made for the Ka-boom sneak peek, where I really liked the concept, but something didn't set quite right with me in the execution.
I added some of the random circles from Amazeballs to the masked strip on the bottom. Now I think it has a little more energy, matching the tone of the sentiment.
The last card uses the Ka-boom set:
The gray "tick tick tick tick" goes around the border, ending at "You're the Bomb." I put the sentiment on an angle to be a little more dynamic. The bloom builder dies from Papertrey worked out perfectly for an explosion behind the fussy-cut bomb.
Thanks for sticking with me, I know there were a lot of cards! All of the stamps you see here are available at CAS-ual Fridays Stamps.
