Dude, That Card is Like, Totally Awesome! :)

Posted on

My comment was chosen as one of the winners for the CAS-ual Fridays new stamp set, release/Blog Hop two weeks ago. I was so excited to get my hands on another one of their awesome stamp sets. (I already own 8 Happy Nights) For my prize I chose the stamp set Rad.

Rad Stamp Set When I was a kid my friends and I used to crack each other up by talking like Valley Girls. So, I think that I will have a fun time mixing and matching the totally, awesome words from this set, dude!

I made this card for my nephew Sam, who is turning 11 in June. Sam doesn’t talk like a surfer or a Valley Girl but, hopefully he will get a kick out of this epic card.

In order to create the neon paint splatter (very 1980 something) I used my Hero Arts neon inks and some Copic Clear Blender. First I pressed some ink onto my plastic table mat and then I added just one drop of the blender. Next I dabbed my paint brush in and then I just flicked it at the card.  The end result reminds my of the J. Geils Band video for Freeze Frame. YouTube it. If you were a kid in the 80’s you will remember how awesome it was to have your MTV.

Next up is a more polished card using the same set and neon inks.

I only had a chance to make two cards with this set before I had to leave for work this morning but, I plan to play around with it more tonight or tomorrow.

I will be entering this card into the Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Anything Goes.

A big thank you to Michele at CAS-ual Fridays for her generosity, inspiration and totally awesome stamps!

Happy Stamping,

  1. OMG These are awesome! I love all the fun sentiment combinations you came up with, and the 80’s look is totally rad! I just heard the Valley Girl song by Frank and Moon Zappa on the radio the other day for the first time since forever!! So fun 🙂

  2. Both fabulous cards, both great design and I love your colours and splattering on your first card, the second with the neon inks are stunning!!

    Thanks so much for joining us at Simon Says Stamp challenge
