CAS-ual Fridays Stamps - October New Release - Day 1

Hello, hello everybody and welcome to Day 1 of the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps October New Release!!!

There are 8 new stamp sets being released this week and over the next six days we will be sharing ideas using them all.

Today its all about Angels- Flower Angel and Angel Hugs:

 I think everyone needs or already has an angel in their life, and these ones are absolutely beautiful. They will be wonderful to send to anyone on a card to lift their spirits or let them know how much they mean to you. I loved creating my two cards and made them with particular people in mind:


As soon as I saw this 'Flower Angel' image I imagined it in white, showing off all its detail. So I white heat embossed it on some plain vellum. Using the second largest 'Bubble Box Fri-dies' I die-cut it from the middle of a panel of white CS. I then stamped the 'Full-on Floral' stamp set over the panel (using Waffle Flower 'New Fish in Pond' ink), once over the bottom half and then the top half, making it look like it was one big stamp image.

To make the embossed image stand out, I blended Distress Oxide ink 'Peacock Feathers' over the card front and then popped the panel on some foam tape. I white heat embossed the sentiment on some aqua CS, put on foam tape and glued on some white and clear sequins from Neat and Tangled.

For my second card I got all girly with pink. I cut a panel of light grey CS and adhered to the card front. I stamped the 'Full-on Floral' stamp set on some white CS (using Waffle Flower 'Safe Choice' ink) and die-cut using a Couture Creations circle die. I then die-cut some pink CS using the larger circle from the 'Ornament Tag Fri-Dies'. I glued the floral circle to the card front and then put the pink circle on white foam.

I stamped the 'Angel Hugs' image with Gina K Amalgam Black ink on white CS, coloured with my Altenew Artist Markers and fussy cut out. I white heat embossed the sentiment on a strip of the same pink CS and put it on foam tape, along with the angels, and glued on some Neat and Tangled sequins.

All of the New Release products are available RIGHT NOW for purchase and if you use my special Girl Friday code you can save yourself 15%!!
