This card I cased out of the back of new summer mini, but changed up color scheme to using pink and regal rose. The stamp set is Stampin Up's hope and strength set, that benefits breast cancer research.
I had this tinsel I had bought out of winter mini catalog and (gasp) never used it. So I added some champagne mist shimmer paint with sponge dauber around the edge of tag.
Today, I was inspired to use a new set I got on pre-order for an upcoming campaign to benefit Breast Cancer. Personally, I lost my mom to this terrible disease over 16 years ago so I always try to support any research causes in this area.
As part of our Making a Difference program, Stampin' Up! is proud to partner with The Breast Cancer Research Foundation in the Strength & Hope Campaign.
Throughout the 2011 Summer Mini Catalog sales period, Stampin' Up! will donate $2* from the sale of each Strength & Hope set and Strength & Hope digital kit to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF)
I am doing a craft fair this Saturday at the Islamic school of Rhode Island in Warwick RI. As it is a school I wanted to have some more things kids might want to buy, so I made some bulletin boards out of cork sheets I had and backed them with 12 x 12 paper that I glued to the cardboard backing in the designer paper for stability.
I added some jumbo eyelets, big shot letters and some either sizzlets or stamped images to attach to tacks.
Usually you need to bring at least 2 dozen swaps, as I get bored with just doing one card I came up with one more inlaid embossing. This one I used create a cupcake punch and I was inspired to use my red glimmer paper and came up with bright color scheme based off that.
I am psyched because Stampin Up regionals is coming close to me, so I will be attending Regionals in Hartford, CT on Saturday. It always is fun to learn new things, see great ideas and of course Swapping!
I decided to focus on a technique so I did two different cards using inlaid embossing using my big shot embossing folders and punches. Super easy- just punch out images and then adhere to your cardstock base and run through big shot in an embossing folders.
Here is one of my rejects, as I caught an edge. Don't you hate that???
I have been stamping for about 6 years. I became a Stampin Up demo in September 2006 and love every minute of it. I enjoy scrapbooking, knitting and teaching swimming. I am married to a great guy who supports my crazy stamping habit. I have two great boys 13 and 11.
