Hi everyone! Happy Friday!
I’ve been in kind of a retro mood lately. Perhaps it was my recent forays into creating a neon sign card that got me in the that headspace, but I’ve been drooling over mod patterns, funky designs and other awesome stuff like that.
This month’s stamps from CAS-ual Fridays might not leap out and say ‘retro’ to you, but I couldn’t escape the vibe when designing my cards for today’s release blog hop.
Here’s the first of two cards I created with this month’s goodies:
Gorgeous pattern, right?! I stamped the diamond stamps from the Modern Petals stamp set in Spring colours to create a sort of subtle plaid! It still feels kinda retro to me, even though plaid is making a comeback and these colours give it a more modern feel.
The sentiment from the Floating stamp set was a wonderful little uplifting touch to this pretty card.
Next up, I went full-on retro:
I am crazy about this one! The sentiments from So Pretty really reminded me of a 70s style design, so that’s where I went with my design!
I created my rainbow pattern by hand, colouring them with Copic markers. The sentiments from Rad also went perfectly with this so I had to add a couple!
Today is the Release Day for the March CAS-ual Fridays release! All the goodies you’ve been salivating over this week are now available to buy in the store!

Taheera, I’m diggin’ the retro vibe. Thanks for reminding me, too, that I *can* create some of a card’s elements by hand, like your 70’s rainbow swirl (vs stamping them all) and still have cool and beautiful results.
