Happy Friday!  Its time for a new CAS-ual Fridays Challenge!  This one is all about music.

This stamped sentiment is from the Big Treble Stamp set and I absolutely LOVE it!  I just added a little water coloring behind the sentiment and that was it.

Top Dog Dies Aug. 25

I have some fun dessert themed cards for you today! 
First up is the card using the Make A Cake Die set.  I cut the cake base and then embossed it just to give it a little texture.  Those candles are so fun, I added some wink of stella glitter pen and glossy accents to the flames.
The next card uses the Cupcake Die set and the Borders #1 Die set.
I used the border die along both sides of the card panel.  The stamp is from an older PTI set and that saying just makes me smile.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Top Dog Dies necklace Tutorial

Hi!  I am going to show you how I made this sweet unicorn necklace today.
Gather all your supplies.  Your going to need some shrink film, unicorn die, hole punch and permanent markers.
Die cut your unicorn from the shrink film.  After you've cut the unicorn we are going to impress the details into the die cut.
To do this grab a rubber mat and place the die cut on the mat.  Tape the hair portion of the die to the die cut and run it thru your machine, the rubber mat will allow it to impress the image instead of cut it.  You should end up with something that looks like this.
Next we are going to color our unicorn with permanent markers and punch a hole for the string to be thread thru after it is shrunk.
You can bake the shrink film as directed on the packaging or you can use a heat tool like I did, just make sure you have a long piercing tool or something similar  to keep ahold of the little thing because it will want to move around like crazy.
Here is the finished necklace worn by my daughter.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Top Dog Dies Aug. 11

I have three kids ages 16, 14 and 11 but no babies.  I have a lot of friends that are having babies and it is so fun to make baby themed cards.  The new onesie dress dies are just adorable and make the cutest cards!!
I used the onesie die and cut just shy of the fold of the card base so that I had a onesie shaped card.  The cute buttons and ruffled skirt with pockets are from the new Onesie Dress die set.  The set comes with even more dies I did not use to customize your dress how you choose, it even has the most adorable little lady bug in it.  Here is a close up for you.
I added a little glossy accents to the buttons to give them the shiny button look.
Thanks for joining me today, I hope you were inspired to make some baby themed cards for the special people in your lives.

With Love

Hello!  I am popping in today to share a fun card with you.  Our family recently got a new puppy that we named Simba.  He is the cutest little Pomeranian and he is so much fun.
When I first saw the Dog Days 2 dies I immediately though of using the Scottie dog and plaid pattern paper. 
I used the inlaid die cutting technique for this card.  I die cut the dog from the panel and then inserted the plaid die cut in its place.  I die cut the tie next and inserted the black die cut tie in its place and covered it with glossy accents.  Here is a closer look.
I hope you were inspired, thanks for stopping by!

Top Dog Dies July 21

Hello!  I am back today with a sweet baby card to share with you.  I don't know about you but where I live it seems like everyone is expecting a baby. 
How perfect is this onesie shaped card for a shower or a welcome baby card!?  I folded my A2 card base and die cut it just above the fold of my card to create the shaped card and then I die cut the onesie again and adorned it with ruffles, collar and a cute stamped and colored image.  Here is a closer look.
I hope you enjoyed my card today and I have inspired you to make some onesie cards of your own.
