CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #65–Hip to be Square!


Happy Friday, kids!!


Hope you’ve been having a great week so far!  I’ve been working like a busy little beaver in anticipation of friends arriving today for the weekend!  We plan to spend some time in Victoria, B.C., as well as show them all the sights of Seattle.  And it’s supposed to be sunny – BONUS!!


It’s that time again for another CAS-ual Fridays Challenge!  This week’s challenge is super easy – create a CLEAN & SIMPLE design, using a square card base.  Fun, right?!

Stampotique Originals Graphic

Stampotique Originals is our awesome sponsor this week, and they very generously provided some amazing images to the Girl Fridays to play with!  If you’re looking for some super unique and fun images to stamp with, you so need to check Stampotique Originals out now!  Thank you, Stampotique Originals!!

So I had the pleasure of working with the image called Funky Dotted Leaves.  I adore the great lines and detail in this image.  It was super fun to work with.  I stamped it onto three different colors of cardstock in dark brown pigment ink.  I love a dramatic fall color scheme, don’t you?


STAMPS:  Funky Dotted Leaves (Stampotique Originals), Remember (Hero Arts)
INK:  Chocolate (Fresh Ink), Toffee (A Muse Studio)
PAPER:  Hot Fudge (French Poptone), More Than Mustard and Really Rust (Stampin’ Up!), Summer Sunrise (PTI)
OTHER:  Take Three Die (PTI), Woodgrain Impression Plate (A Muse Studio), Corner Chomper (We R Memory Keepers)


Well, kids, that’s it for me today.  We’ll be driving around enjoying the sights of sunny Seattle today, and off to Victoria, B.C., tomorrow.  I hope you have a great weekend!  Be sure and stop by tomorrow, though, as I’ll have a sample to share for the very first Cameo Spotlight Challenge!!  Woohoo!!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

I really, really love this! The design, the colors, the stamps. It all came together just perfectly. And, since it's in the 90s (weep) down here in the South Sound, I'm totally in the mood for fall!

Have a great trip and enjoy the ferry ride! We're taking one on a trip to San Juan island next month. I LOVE riding the Puget Sound ferries!
