Our Final Friend Friday with CAS-ual Fridays

 

We are sad to say that today is our last Friend Friday with our friends at Casual Friday Stamps, we have all had so much fun playing along with them this month and want to thank them and their team for such an awesome hop!

Hopefully we will see them again in the future! But let’s not get sad we have lots to look forward to next month, including the 4th of July celebrations, to kick of some creative inspiration Jessica has created this  Shine Art project in 4th of July colors!By Jessica Sanders

Jessica said  “This art journal page is inspired by Cas-ual Friday’s fabulous Twinkle stamp set.  Stars are my thing, and there are so many cute stars in the set.  The sentiments make it even better.  I wanted to use them all! ”

Want to see how this was created? Jessica has created a video to show you just how!

Next up we have the lovely Tracy with this colorful layout.

By Tracy McLennon

Tracy said “These Cas-ual Friday Stamps and Dies were my inspiration for this layout. They were just begging for bright and beautiful colour.,

Whenever I start a colouring project this is what I do. I stamp lots of the same image and play with colour a bit. I find it takes the stress out of colouring. Not every image will be perfect, and not every colour combo will be what you want either. Plus you can take your stamped images and colour while watching your favourite TV show. These Cas-ual Friday, Mon Ami images were just so perfect for colouring with Chameleon Pens.”

You can see how Tracy created this Colorful Layout here.

Summer Layout

Tracy shows us how to capture those summer memories today for future generations with this gorgeous layout.

By Tracy McLennon

Tracy said “I was inspired by this fun and fabulous paper collection from Echo Park Paper, paired with one of my favourite photos. The photo was taken at one of our favourite places to visit in the summer, Brackley Beach, Prince Edward Island.”

Tracy said she likes to stamp lots of images and play with colour a bit. It takes the stress out of colouring. Not every image will be perfect, and not every colour combo will be what you want either. Plus you can take your stamped images and colour while watching your favourite TV show.

Friend Friday with More CAS-ual Fridays

 

 

Welcome back to another Friend Friday with Casual Friday stamps, today we are joined by Olesya and Sandra with some wonderful floral inspiration. First up is Olesya with this sparkly card.

By Olesya Kharkova

Olesya said the inspiration for this project was “the simple design of the flowers by CAS-ual Fridays allows  me to create interesting combinations and clusters, color them any way you like and play with dimension. And any time they will look unique. Having all that in mind I’ve decided to make a card using my Chameleon pens to emphasize the design with richness of color and glitter. ”

If you would like to see how Olesya created this Miracles happen card you can download the instructions here.

Sandra has created this cool card with the most colorful sentiment.
By Sandra Kustić Uzur

We asked Sandra what inspired her to make this design, she said ” Friends are so important in our lives and often we forget to show them that they are loved. Here is my card for my best friend that loves flowers and everything that is pink or violet and sparkly of course.”

We continue our summer theme today with this nautical design by Sandra, what a perfect card for the man in your life!
By Sandra Kustić Uzur

Friend Friday continues with CAS-ual Fridays

Today Ilina and Tanya join us to share some Casual Friday and Chameleon goodness, but when we first saw Ilina’s project we thought she had finally lost the plot with it being summer and her card being Christmas themed…but scroll below to see her very cool explanation for such craziness!

By Ilina Crouse

Ilina said “While we are in the heat of summer, I often like to “cool” off with  some Christmas (winter) cards. It kind of helps me to forget for a little bit how hot it is outside (If you live in the South East US, you know how hot it can get). And as well that helps me, with jump starting my Christmas cards, so I am not in a pinch when the Holidays come around. So, cool off with me during the heat of summer and this Partridge in Pear tree card using some amazing CAS-Fridays stamps.”

Now if you want to cool off and make some Christmas cards you can download the instructions to  the Partridge in a Pear Tree Card  here .

Now how about something completely different?  Tanya has used her Casual Friday supplies to create this stunning scrapbook page.

By Tanya Batrak

Such a beautiful keepsake for years to come, if you would like to see how to recreate this Smile Layout you can download the instructions here.

It’s Friend Friday with CAS-ual Fridays

 

Hello and welcome to all our CAS-ual Fridays readers, we are so excited to be sharing our Friend Friday’s this month with the wonderful CAS-ual Fridays gang,  CAS-ual Fridays Stamps have been creating clever, stylish and sorta sassy designs in beautiful Colorado since 2012. All their stamp and die sets were personally dreamed up and designed by owner Michele Gross – just a little glimpse of the fun stuff happening in her head and if you knew her you know how much fun she is!  Today Cathy is taking their stamps and dies for a test run with our Chameleon Art Products.

First up is this vibrant design using the Mon Ami stamp and die set, this was coloured with just one Chameleon Pen, One Color Top and one Pencil!

 

Cathy created this whilst sat in the garden and she tried to video the process but  too many gusts of wind got the better of her, she smudged the card and had to do a quick rescue……there is a video to accompany this but you may want to download the Flower Card instructions for a fuller explanation!

 

Cathy used the same stamp set with our pencils to create this colourful design.

Cathy said her inspiration on how to color this design came from seeing a rainbow, so she set about using those colors for her petals on her design.

This card was really easy to create, if you would like to recreate this Floral Card you can download the instructions here.

Sweet Summer Time

It is finally here…the sun has come out and it is officially summer time, now instead of everyone in the office moaning that it is cold and raining they are all moaning that it is too hot to work!

Ilina is with us today to help celebrate summer with this sweet summer time card.By Ilina Crouse

Don’t you just love how the pink lemonade looks using just the one Fuchsia pen? Ilina said “I love summer for the all the bright and cheerful colors. I may say that it’s my favorite season besides spring. Summer is time for the beach, colorful drinks, ice cream, and of course watermelon, who doesn’t like watermelon? So in my card I tried to depict all these things. I wanted to make it bright, cheery and colorful, and added some black which makes the colors pop-up even more. ”

If you would like to recreate Ilina’s Sweet Summertime Card you can download the instructions here.

why not tell us in your comments what is your favourite summer time sweet treat…if we get enough comments we may even splash out and let the Chameleon team have an ice-cream to cool them down!

Enjoy The Journey

Travel Book Mark

We all love a good read when we travel, so how about creating a travel themed bookmark to take along with you.  Ekaterina is back today with this flying high book mark.

By Ekaterina Oleunik

Ekaterina said “When there is not an opportunity to see the world alive, it is possible to take the fascinating book about travel and to get to the magic world of adventures. And not to lose the place where have stopped to read, better to make a bookmark for books.”

If you would like to make your own Travel Bookmark you can download the instructions here.
