CAS-ual Fridays Stamps - October New Release - Day 2

Hi there and welcome to Day 2 of the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps October New Release!!

We have 8 new stamp sets to share with you this week and they are all available to purchase RIGHT NOW!! Yesterday was all about 'angels', today is all about encouragement. Introducing 'Doing Great':

This is the perfect size to fill a card front and to send to anyone who needs some support and to remember that they are going to get thru!! For my card I wanted to make the sentiment the star with a soft frame to make it pop:


I started by cutting a panel of black CS and adhering to the card front. I then cut a panel of white CS slightly smaller than the card. In the middle of it I stamped the sentiment 3x with Versafine Onyx ink and immediately clear heat embossed with Simon Says Stamp Clear Embossing Powder. 

I wanted to frame the sentiment but not have a harsh line around it. So I put the 'Tin Roof Stencil' over top and held in place with washi tape. As I wanted an ombre effect with Distress Oxide Inks, I started first with 'Spun Sugar', doing it slowly and carefully so I didn't get too close to the words. I then used 'Picked Raspberry', leaving some of the softer pink showing near the sentiment. I then finished off with 'Candied Apple', adding only to the outer edge. 

Once the ink was dry, I glued the panel to a piece of black foam and adhered to the card front. And instead of sequins I added small spots of Nuvo Crystal Drops in 'Ebony Black'.

As I mentioned all of the new stamp sets are available to purchase now and if your going to do a spot of shopping, don't forget to use my special code to save yourself 15%!!
