Hi everyone! October is breast cancer awareness month. This card along with several other projects with a Think Pink 2015 are featured over at the Canvas Corp blog which you can check out HERE.
This card was created with a play on words but with a serious message. Breast cancer can affect anyone. With females it is the second leading cause of death and even though breast cancer is rare in men it is very important to know your facts and be checked yearly.
First I cut a piece of Grey and White Mini Dot Reverse cardstock and folded to create a 6″x6″ card base. Next fussy cut an owl from the Birds and Bees on Ivory cardstock.
Cut a 3 1/2″x5 1/2″ piece of Pink Lemonade Thickstock, emboss with a geometric design and lightly ink edges and over the raised design. Cut a scalloped rectangle from the Hot Pink and White Damask Reverse cardstock, cut a scallop edge from the Embossed Large Floral White Specialty paper and a 5/8″x6″ banner from the Pink and Ivory Mini Dot Reverse cardstock. Once everything is cut adhere to the front of the card.
I printed the sentiment from the computer, cut to create a banner and adhered to the card. I pulled a strand of hot pink burlap and made a loop and tied off to create the breast cancer emblem and then finished with sequins and flat back pearls.
If you have any questions please let me know.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Thursday is wonderful and enjoy creating!
Hi everyone! I’m sharing my first double page spread from my diary I altered. I’m in a group over on Swap-bot were instead of sending your journal off for someone to alter they send you an envelope of, generally a theme, of scrapbook paper, images and bits and pieces of goodies. I received an envelope from Mag who lives in Singapore. How she had the envelope decorated was so much fun. I just couldn’t throw it away so I used the stamps, custom form, deco tape and address label and created my page. I did use a few of the items she included and I used some of my own dot stickers and this is what I came up with.
I‘m still working on the front cover of my journal. I feel it lacks something but once I do finish it I will share. 🙂
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Wednesday is awesome and enjoy creating!!!
Hi everyone! I’m back and have a couple of get well cards I created. I used a 6″x6″ cardstock base which I folded in half to give me a 3×6″ card. These little cards fit into a 3 5/8″ x 6 1/2″ envelope easily…plus they are inexpensive. I’m all about crafting on a dime too. 🙂
The little owl I created using my own owl template. I just added bits of scrapbook paper, punch out and embossed the “belly”, typed up a sentiment on the computer and the “buttons” are from a punch out sheet from K & Company. Done!!! How easy is that???
Next cards I used a typewriter rubber stamp from Unity Stamps. I’m not sure what set they come from since I won a bag of 50 rubber stamps from Unity and was just a mix???
Again I just added scraps of scrapbook paper, stamped the typewriter image on cardstock and fussy cut out.
I printed a get well soon sentiment from the computer and fit into the small slit I cut in the top of the typewriter. Super cute, super fun and super quick!!!
Thanks for stopping by, have an awesome day and enjoy creating!!!
