CAS-ual Fridays Stamps - October New Release - Day 5

Hi there everyone! This week has disappeared so quickly. I have so much to do before we go on a family holiday to Australia next Tuesday, I'm running myself ragged. However, once we are on that plane I will finally be able to relax and forget about all the things I didn't get done and enjoy myself!!

Its also been a fantastic week sharing all the New Release products with you all from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps. We are up to Day 5 and today we are sharing a stamp set that's perfect for someone who's have a @!%$& time - 'This Sucks': 

This is one fantastic stamps set. I'll admit, I do love to swear, sometimes its the only thing that helps, like a good stress release. So seeing the sentiments on this set made me very happy indeed and that was the idea for this card:

A 'rainbow' of swear words.....rainbow colours can make anything look good!!

For this card I started off by stamping the two sentiments on white CS with Versafine Onyx ink and immediately heat embossing with Simon Says Stamp Clear Embossing powder. I stamped them both around 4x to make sure there was good coverage and enough ink to pick up the powder. I fussy cut them out and added foam tape to the back of each.

I really wanted to use the 'expletives' stamp, so grabbed my Waffle Flower inks and stamped it on white CS 8x. Using an oval die from the 'Huggable Critters' set, I die-cut each colour out. I also cut the same number of 'ovals' from a panel of black CS. I adhered it to the card front and then inlaid each coloured word.

All I had to do then was glue on the sentiments and some pearls from Studio Katia.

I'm going to link this to the Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge where their theme is 'Anything Goes'. This is my second entry.

If your dying to get your hands on this stamp set or any of the other New Release sets, they are available right now. And if you use my special code you can save yourself 15%.

  1. Great sentiment stamp and amazing design! Love the colors!

  2. Boy, are you right about the swearing...sometimes my craft area is full of blue haze, especially when I goof up a card. Anyway, your card really says it all and I love the little "swearing" ovals. Now, I'm off to shop.

  3. Fun card for a Halloween day.
    Love snarky comments.
    thanks for sharing
