Hello Sweet Stamping Friends!!
It’s Friday – YAY!! That means it’s time for another CAS-ual Fridays Challenge! Can I get a WOOT! WOOT!! This week’s challenge is another goody – create a CLEAN AND SIMPLE project using ONLY black and white!! No other color – nada, zilch, nuttin’ honey!! LOL
We have another wonderful sponsor this week – Cindy Coutts, who is a Stampin’ Up! consultant, as well as an amazing stamper and designer. Cindy has very generously offered up a yummy prize for this week’s TGIF Club winner, but you’ll have to hop on over to the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge Blog to find out what it is (and I assure you, you’re going to want it!! Just sayin’ . . . .)
I had a BLAST with this challenge, mostly because I love color, but it’s so nice when the color decisions are made for me. LOL I actually used one of my most fave-a-lave A Muse Studio stamp sets called Let’s Chat. I stamped the “blah blah blah” stamp in VersaMark and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I die cut the frame using two different die cuts. That adorable telephone was stamped again in VersaMark and heat embossed with black embossing powder (I think I got a little embossing happy for this project . . . hehehe). The rest is pretty self-explanatory, right?!
STAMPS: Let’s Chat (A Muse Studio)
INK: Onyx Black VersaFine and VersaMark (Tsukineko)
PAPER: Raven CS (Bazzill Paper Basics), Ultra Smooth Solar White CS (Neenah)
ACCESSORIES: White and Black Embossing Powder (ZING/American Crafts), Baker’s Twine (The Twinery), Self-Adhesive Rhinestones and Stampin’ Dimensionals (Stampin’ Up!), Mat Stack 4 and Rectangle Label Dies (PTI)
I can’t wait to see what you all come up with for this week’s challenge!! Reviewing your submissions is my most favorite part of my job as a Girl Friday – seriously, you all blow me away with your creativity!! So, what are you waiting for – get busy!! LOL
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I have a very busy and full weekend planned. There are some stamps in my craft room that are calling my name, some challenge samples to make, as well as some submissions for the current Paper Crafts publication call that are due soon. How about you – any fun plans for the weekend? Whatever they are, I hope you have a great one!
