Friday Mashup time again!

This is my second week of being a Guest Designer for Friday Mashup Challenges.  I was so excited when Holly sent me the details of the challenge as this is one of my favourite combos.

So I've created a mashup card for your inspiration.  This card is a case of a card that I cased very early in my card making days and I'm sorry but I wasn't blogging then and didn't take down the name of the person I cased so if it's yours leave a comment and a link to your blog and I'll give you credit.

I've used the Always stamp set here, it's one of my all time favourites.  As my heat gun hasn't arrived, the white images on the background are stamped in Craft Ink White rather than embossed in white, so they appear a lot softer than intended.

I then went out and made another Black n White card for fun to play along in the challenge.  

Another favourite stamp is Bella Toile, I've stamped it in Basic Black and then run the image through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice embossing folder and sponged the edges in Basic Black.  I'm always amazed at how 'purple' Basic Black can look!

I've punched a scallop border around the edge and then threaded some white taffeta ribbon through the holes and added a few rhinestones for some bling!

Hope you're inspired to join in and play with us at Friday Mashup for Challenge # 3  

On another note, I've been playing around with my blog and adding and then removing several backgrounds over the past few days then I found the Scrappin Blogs site and they have some amazing backgrounds, I'll stick with light and dusky pinks for a while, it's got butterflies on it!  Just in case all these changes show up for my followers.  Sorry about all that playing around.


  1. Inspirational as always Kasey, it is so funny that Bella Toile has come out in the pic as if you stamped in a purple!!! very beautiful with the ribbon threaded through the punchout border.

  2. I love this idea! I would have never thought to thread ribbon through the scallops! What a great way to add more dimension, I love all the crafty ideas out there. TFS!


  3. I love both of these... The Bella Toile is a set I favorite as well, I tend to hoard my favorite sets though and not use them, not sure why I do that. They are look so sad and Your new background is vert pretty, pink and butterflies 2 of my favs.

  4. Both cards are so pretty!! I love the softness of the white craft ink

  5. Both pretty cards Kasey! Love the two hearts! So precious!

  6. Both of your cards are just fantastic Kasey! Fantastic job with the challenge!
