Breast Cancer Awareness



Today I have a very pink card for you. It seems appropriate as it's October and Breast Cancer Awareness month. If you haven't checked your breast yet, stop reading right now and go and do it. It is very important to get anything suspicious checked out right away. I had a scare last year and it was horrible waiting for the test results so I get it's scary. I was one of the lucky ones and got an all-clear. Not everyone is so lucky but key is early detection so go have a thorough check-up. If you aren't sure what to look for or how to do it, there are several breast cancer websites that will show you.

Right, now I have been quite bossy enough, I'll get down to the crafty side of things. I used the gorgeous Splendid Roses stamp again, it's just so stunning I couldn't help myself. I coloured it in with Copics, using soft pinks for the petals and greens for the leaves. Once I finished colouring, I fussy cut the image.

For the actual background I decided on using a polka dot patterned paper from a Lawn Fawn pad. To frame the card, I also cut a stitched rectangle in white linen paper using Lawn Fawn dies again (I'm slightly obsessed with them) I stamped a sentiment in pink ink on a banner cut out of kraft paper to keep the look soft.

The roses that I fussy cut out earlier was adhered to the card panel using 3mm thick foam tape to create dimension. To create another layer, I added the banner using 2mm thick foam tape. For some finishing touches, I used some sequins from the Pink Champagne and Moonbeam mixes.

That's it from me today, I'm not my usual rambling self as I'm not very well at the moment *sniff sniff, cough cough* I'll make it up to you next time with lots of jibber-jabber.

Happy crafting,

Erica

Spreading Kindess card

Hello everyone, Erica on the blog today!

I don't know about you but I've been quite saddened to see so much hatred, friends attacking friends and general unkindness going around lately. Regardless of your political/religious/personal beliefs I think we can all do better with keeping it a bit civilised and perhaps doing less talking and more actions. With that in mind I made this card with a positive message to send out some positive karma into the world.

















Using an A2 panel cut out from Ranger Ink water colour paper, I dusted it generously with my anti-static tool as I was going to heat emboss the gorgeous Just A Rose stamp set. I started by stamping it in the middle with VersaMark ink and dusting it with white embossing powder, also from Ranger Ink. Using a mask I already had, I stamped it again on both sides to create a rose bush border, before adding and setting the embossing powder with my heat tool.

Using a sentiment from Mama Elephant's 'Butterfly Kisses' I st…
