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

Matching Poinsettia Card and Tag

Rachel here today with a card featuring a peek at a future set.


I decided to create a matching card and tag set to use this Christmas season. The Poinsettias are gorgeous and so much fun to color!


Right now, these images are in digital format, so I arranged them in a Word document and then printed them out on some Neenah Solar White cardstock. I used my KGC stitched rectangle die to cut out the portion of the images that I wanted to use and then used my Copics to color them in and added shadows around them. I used my MISTI to line up my sentiment on top of my panel and then heat embossed in gold. I adhered my panel to a Fog Gray card base to add a little contrast.


Next up, I used a tag die to cut out another image for the front of my tag and then used the same process to color it in. I cut another tag from some white cardstock and then heat embossed my sentiment on it. I adhered the sentiment to the back of my poinsettia image to create a completed tag which also hid any bleeding from…

Counting Down!

Hi its Karen on the blog with you today.

I think I may be in denial about Christmas.  It just seems to be sneaking up very very fast.  I know I have loads to do and really need to get going. Hopefully posting this Christmas Ornament may just help. This super cute little image from Kennedy Grace Creations is such a joy to colour and even though he's a christmas critter I think he could be used all year round on projects.  I used a die cut from Frantic Stamper Inc to cut the ornament in very sparkly paper.  Then popped the image up on foam.  Added some silver twine and there you have a super cute and easy ornament to adorn the tree or a special gift tag.  I think these would look lovely against shiny white wrapping paper.

I know it looks huge in the photo but its approximately 2.5 x 2.5 inches in size.


Have a great day!
