Hoppy Birthday card with CAS- ual Fridays


Hello my dear crafty friends! Irit is here today with a new small card tutorial I made for CAS- ual Fridays blog.
I used a cute stamp set and Fri- dies to make a black and white (with a touch of gold) Birthday card.
As you can see this card has minimum coloring and minimum embellishments.
Actually I only used glitter glue and some enamel drops to add gold touches and some coloring of the bunnies.


Here you can see the layering over the card :


And some close- ups too:



CAS- ual Fridays products used to make this card:

And now for the tutorial:
1. Die cut two card bases in the A2 size- one black and one white.
Stamp the Heart to Heart background with black pigmented ink over white cardstock and heat emboss with clear embossing powder. Stamp the same background with VersaMark over black cardstock and heat emboss with white embossing powder.





2. Cut both stamped pieces diagonally . Glue two triangles over the black card  base as shown. Glue the two remained triangles on the back and die cut the smaller rectangle. Glue the smaller die cut  rectangle over the first one as shown.


3.Stamp the bunny image twice- one over black cardstock with white heat embossing and one over white cardstock with black embossing. Die cut both bunnies and one balloon as shown.Stamp the sentiment with permanent black ink.


4. Arrange the images over the basic card and glue them with 3d foam glue.
Add gold glitter glue and white, black and clear enamel dots as shown. Your fancy and yet easy to make card is done.

Christmas gift card holder and bookmark with BoBunny


Hello my dear crafty friends!
Irit from Irit Shalom Designs is here today with my second project made with the most adorable and newest Yuletide Carol collection.
This is a totally traditional Christmas collection- colors, designs and sayings .
 So I decided to make the totally traditional Christmas Gift card holder/card and to add a lovely interactive bookmark made with the same collection.


 As you can see the gift card holder is a standing card and the bookmark is made with the frame and inside moving piece.
I made the front with book shaped dies using different cardstocks and added distressing to the edges as this is a pretty much vintage collection.
The book pages were glued one over another and then embellished with Combo stickers, Layered chipboard, jewels and a couple of BoBunny dies were used to add the interest to this project.



 Here you can see all layers of this project when closed:





 And this is the " step" that holds this piece standing: made with cardstock, die cuts, stickers and BoBunny die cut sentiment arranged in 5 layers as a " chipboard" piece.



 The inside tag is glued on the top and on the bottom , so you can put your cash or your gift card under the tag.



 And here is the book mark- the " Joy" part can be used as a separate bookmark too.





 Product list:


Yuletide Carol collection 12'': O Tannenbaum, Presents, Joyous, Carol, Christmas
Yuletide Combo Stickers
Yuletide Layered chipboards
Yuletide Noteworthy die cuts
Christmas card dies
Tick Tock die
To and from dies
Belief dies

You're the tweetest card with CAS- ual Fridays

 Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my new CAS- ual Fridays post.
Today I am going to share a small tutorial of a card made with one single CAS- ual Fridays  Little Birdies stamp set  and it's actually one layer card (plus basic card ).



This is a kind of a Mixed Media creation as it was done with distress inks, heat embossing, water splashes and masking fluid, but finally it looks non messy and very cute.





This is the stamp set used to make this project:


Little Birdies
And here is a small tutorial I made for this card:

1. Stamp the birdies with pigmented black ink and heat emboss with black fine embossing powder.



2. Cover the stamped image with masking fluid and let it dry.


3. Make oval template that covers the card and use distress inks to ink the inside oval over the stamped and masked image.



4. Peel the masking fluid off the image as now it's like a rubber.



5. Color the birds with watercolor markers.


6. Stamp the sentiment from the same set using permanent black ink.


7. Add a drop of water to distress inks and make splashes over the card. Let it dry.

 Your card is actually done. Add the base and give it to a good friend !

I hope that you like my cute friendship card and you still have time to buy yourself these gorgeous stamps from CAS- ual Fridays shop and even to use our  discounts.

BoBunny Christmas interactive card

Hello my dear crafty friends!
Irit is here today and I welcome you to my first Christmas in August post.
I know that Christmas is still far away, but new BoBunny adorable Christmas collections are here and now and this is a time to share our new Christmas projects with you all.
So today I made an interactive and very fancy card  there and I used this Christmas in the Village collection and I am really in love with  this collections lovely graphics and non- traditional Christmas colors.
My card this time has no Mixed Media add- ons and it's easy to make and fits each and every crafter.
This is how it looks when standing as a regular card:

 But wait- you are going to be amazed!
Let's open the topper :






 And now it's full opened!


Usually this kind of a card is made without  all bottom layers; the pop- up part is the actual card where you write the greetings.
I made it in a bit more layered style: the pop- up part is just the card topper/front and then there are a few more cardstock layers and the actual light blue card where you add your greetings/sentiments/ thoughts or whatever you wish.
 So here you can see all the layers on this standing card:


And if you want to try to make this  kind of card- HERE is a video tutorial for you to use.
Just a word about it: in the video the final part was mis- glued upside down and there were no way to change it in the video. But the final project was re- done and the pop- up part is glued in the correct direction.
As the video is mostly to teach the mechanism of this card  the inside ornaments direction is not the issue and you can see the finished re- done project without any mistakes.

Product list:

Christmas in the Village 12'' cardstock Ornaments, Countdown
Chriastmas in the Village Combo Stickers
Christmas in the Village Layered Chipboards
Christmas in the Village Noteworthy die cuts
Double Dot Powder blue Damask 12'' cardstock
American Crafts Light blue texture  solid cardstock 12''

I really hope that you like my card and my tutorial and see you in a week with more delicious BoBunny Christmas projects!

Merry Chrismas without red and green with CAS- ual Fridays

Hello my dear crafty friends! Irit is here today and I am going to share my new  CAS- ual Fridays Christmas card made without any green and red colors, but in some mew for me non - traditional Christmas color combo.

 The basic card was made with BoBunny Christmas patterned cardstock, but in each and every circle I stamped a single CAS- ual Fridays snowflake.

The sleigh was first stamped using Sleighride largest stamp and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. Then it was die cut with matching Fri- die and arranged over the lower die cut layer (just for the layering).
The inside part of the sleigh was die cut from patterned cardstock and then more similar snowflakes were stamped and heat embossed with the same gold powder.

The sentiment from Merry set was stamped over same patterned cardstock and hand cut around. It was stamped with blue pigmented ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
 The only embellishments I added are enamel drops in gold and blue.
