Welcome to the first ever Ultimate Pink Blog Hop – a collection of ideas from Stampin’ UP! demonstrators all over the globe featuring shades of pink in honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
I was decided to join this hop. For years, I have never been effected by breast cancer personally. Then last year, I first a lump in breast. I was really scared and I wanted to ignore it especially since I wasn't in the age category of developing breast cancer. I went to the doctor anyway and I got a mammogram. Luckily for me, it was nothing more than a cyst, but for some people, the news can be devastating. I think it's important to spread the importance of getting your yearly mammogram since it's likely to be caught early if you do. Now on to my projects! For my first card, I CASEd a card I found in the holiday catalog! I chose to use the Flirty Flamingo cardstock and ink . I also used the Fancy Frost Specialty DSP. The sentiment is from the Basket of Wishes stamp set! Click HERE to watch video!
For my second card, I went for a more bolder pink and used Rose Red and Pink Pirouette as my colors. I was wondering how Frosted Medallions and It's a Celebration stamp sets would pair together. I love how it turned. I embossed the sentiment using the white embossing power on Pink Pirouette cardstock.
I am excited you are here. To continue to be inspired whether you’ve come from the person previous to me or after me (Candice Fields) on the list below all participants are listed to help you as you journey among us being filled with pink inspiration.
Hello stampers! Today's card is featuring the Spooky Fun bundle. This bundle features the Spooky Fun and Halloween Scares stamp sets and the Halloween Scenes Edgelits Dies. I decided to create a scene card.
I just love the Halloween Scenes Edgelit dies. I am in love with the fence and spooky tree. The Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper made the perfect moon. I created an array of bats flying away with the Halloween Scares set.
Happy Monday! Today, I have a gift packaging idea for you. With Christmas right around the corner, it will be nice to give little gifts in some very cute DIY gift packaging. I am using some Avon
products which is great for Christmas gifts.
The bags I am using is from my local craft store. I thought that using the new 6x17 cellophane bags were too big.
Here are the instructions on how I created this gift packaging.
1) Cut a piece of early espresso card stock at 5 x 11 inches. Score at 2" and 4.5".
2) Cut a piece of the Candy Cane Lane DSP to 1-3/4" x 4-3/4" and adhere to the early espresso card stock.
3) Using the Real Red 3/4" Stitched Edge Ribbon, tie a bow/knot around the front panel. Place into cellophane bag.
4) Place gifts inside.
5) To create the topper - cut a piece of early espresso at 3-1/2" x 5" and score at 1-3/4". Adhere to bag using stapler. Cut a piece of DSP at 1-1/2" x 4-3/4" and adhere to early espresso topper.
6) Using the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set, stamp Santa image and sentiment. Punch the Sant image using the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch. Using the Layering Oval Framelits, die-cut the sentiment and an early espresso mat. Adhere to topper.
Hello Stampers! Have you ever seen pattern paper that you were unsure about. Then you receive a card using the paper and it completely changed your mind. This is how I felt about the Affectionately Yours DSP.
I received this card from a swap I was in from Jackie Tillman and I just fell in love with the paper. I love the way there is copper foil embedded into the design. This paper will definitely be on my list to get.
Hello stampers! I am late with today's post. This year I joined a Secret Sister group where we swap cards all year long! Today's card was one I received from my secret sister. It features the Sitting Here stamp set that I just love. I really love how she made the elements 3D. I love how realistic it looks.
