This week I have a focus on finding a cure for breast cancer and it has inspired today’s card called Courage Ribbon.

Tip: Stamp the background randomly, don’t worry about where. You can also do some generational stamping to add tones

Courage Ribbon

Tip: Colour in blocks of the same thong e.g. hearts; flowers etc. It saves having to change Stampin’ Blends too often

  • Lymphoma: lime green
  • Prostate cancer: light blue

If you or a loved one has cancer, or you simply want to raise awareness for cancer (or all cancers), wearing a coloured ribbon can be your first step. In the end, your support for cancer education and compassion will not go unnoticed.

Oh, this photo os bright. I didn’t have any Flirty Flamingo ribbon so I improvised.

Cut a small length of Whisper White 3/8″ Classic Weave Ribbon and then colour it using a Dark Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends Marker.

Tip: Place some scrap paper under your ribbon when you colour it and use the darker shade as the ribbon will dry about two shades lighter

Welcome to the 3rd Annual Breast Cancer Blog Hop of International Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators

Breast cancer is a malignant tumour that originates in the cells of the breast. Cancer develops when the cells grow abnormally and multiply. These abnormal cells develop into cancerous growths that can, in some cases, spread (metastasise) to other areas of the body.

This is a subject close to my heart and within my family. In recent times my dear cousin has been diagnosed with Breast Cancer. The prognosis is good however, it’s still a huge thing to overcome.

My Aunt and Godmother passed away a few years ago as a result of breast cancer.

Healthy Habits

While you can’t do anything to change the risk factors such as being a woman, getting older or your family history, there are several other things you can do to reduce your risks and stay healthy.

  • Have a mammogram every two years, it can save your life
  • Maintain a healthy body weight
  • Exercise regularly, something as simple as a brisk walk is enough to reduce the risk
  • Eat a healthy diet with at least five serves of vegetable and two serves of fruit per day
  • Reduce your alcohol intake to no more than 2 standard drinks a day
  • Don’t smoke, although there is no clear link between smoking a breast cancer, toxins have been found in breast cells and smoking is a major cause of other disease and cancers

I showcased some new products in my Live With Libby on Tuesday last. I shared some cards made with the new Snowflake Showcase Suite of products and part of that were some White Velvet Paper Techniques and how to heat emboss on Window Sheets.

Now I didn’t have a finished card but will share my finished cards in my next Live With Libby on Tuesday and one lucky participant will win the cards I make.

So don’t miss my Live With Libby on Tuesday.

Thank you for your support, I do appreciate it.

White Velvet Paper Techniques

Tip: Don’t use a Heat Tool as it will melt the White Velveteen Sheets

Tip: Lay some snowflakes on the surface of the White Velveteen Sheets and use them as masks and spray over them. Lift them off when you have finished spraying

Heat Embossing Window Sheets

Tip: When stamping on Window Sheets, the surface is slippery, so straight down and up with your stamp to prevent overstamping

Tip: It takes a little longer than normal heat setting but have some patience and it will work

Today I have a combination of Designer Series Paper and Bundle in Card Beauty. This is an ideal card to make with leftover pieces of Designer Series Paper.

Card Beauty

Card Beauty

Use up all your leftover pieces of Designer Series Paper. Don’t waste it.

Tip: Cut leftover pieces into triangles and use one on the card front and the other on the card insert

Card Beauty

Tie the colour of your sentiment in with what coordinates with your choice of Designer Series Paper

Tip: Use the same coloured ink as you do when stamping images or coordinate it with a cardstock used in your project.

Welcome to this month’s Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop for October we have the theme Celebrate. I am sure you will gain many ideas and lots of inspiration as you visit each blog in this International Hop. Thank you for joining us.

Celebrate

Celebrate

What occasions do you associate with this word? Parties, Wedding, Engagements, Special Birthdays? Well, my little Granddaughter loves her ballet and we celebrated her love of dance.

Celebrate

This was one of those special ballet’s just for children and only went for about an hour. Little Miss 3 was transfixed for the whole time. I had never seen her sit still for longer than a couple of minutes but she sat still for this whole time.

Use the Celebrate You Thinlit Dies for your heading in Gold Foil Sheets and back it on Basic Black A4 Card Stock.

Celebrate

The smile says it all and of course, ‘bunny’ had to come to the ballet too. We watched Sleeping Beauty.

I used Broadway Bound Speciality Designer Series Paper on Whisper White 12″ X 12″ Card Stock.

Tip: Cut a strip of 12″ x 12″ (30.5 cm x 30.5 cm) then cut it in two giving you two pieces of12″ x 6″ or 30.5 cm x 15.2 cm and then fold the corners under, giving you the triangle effect

Celebrate

I thought the little flying seeds were mirrored in the lights and decorations of the theatre.  Use Dandelion Wishes Clear-Mount Stamp Set with Versamark Pad and Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. This coordinated nicely with the Broadway Bound Speciality Designer Series Paper.

Don’t forget to journal on your pages with the Journaling Pens.

Celebrate

Thanks so much for your time. Now, don’t forget to check out all the blogs in the hop to inspire you to scrap your memories. You’re now off to the wonderful Marga’ blog. Happy hopping

It’s Wednesday, so welcome to another Latte Girls Blog Hop. This week we’re inspiring you with Petal Promenade. Make sure you visit all the blogs in the hop and be inspired by what is shared.

Petal Promenade

Petal Promenade

Use the Stitched All Around Clear-Mount Bundle and Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper to make this card which is quite quick to make

Tip: Use leftover pieces of the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper to decorate card inserts or envelopes

Petal Promenade

Stamp the sentiment piece twice and die cut one out. Use your scissors to cut the other sentiment away and banner cut. Adhere it directly over the original sentiment with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals

Tip: Cut just above and below the lines provided on the sentiment and use them as your cutting guide

Today’s card is a simple one with Promenade Beauty. It’s quick and easy. You could make lots of these in a short amount of time, all for different occasions.

Promenade Beauty

Promenade Beauty

This beautiful Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper has a floral side and the reverse is like a subtle marble in different colours. An abundance of festive flowers to properly celebrate everything that needs celebrating in life. Some sheets include trimmable elements.

Live With Libby

 

Tip: Use one of the trimmable elements pieces as a frame and using Beautiful Promenade Photopolymer Stamp Set and Tranquil Tide Classic Stampin’ Pad, stamp the sentiment inside the frame.

Promenade Beauty

The trimmable pieces are smaller than a card front size so mat the framed piece on Tranquil Tide A4 Cardstock which coordinates nicely with the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper.

OK, a change of pace from Christmas. This week I’m featuring Beautiful Promenade and Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper. This is seriously beautiful paper and if you haven’t got some, I think you should get some. So, stay tuned this week for a different project every day.

Beautiful Promenade

Beautiful Promenade

Trim one of the floral frames from Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper and use Flirty Flamingo Classic Stampin’ Pad to stamp the sentiment from the Beautiful Promenade Photopolymer Bundle.

Trim an oval frame from the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper to match the size of the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper frame. Add Stampin’ Dimensionals and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals under the frame and adhere the two pieces together

Tip: Gently place one on top of the other until you’re happy with the placement and then press together

Beautiful Promenade

Shimmer Paint

Once your card front is put together and before adhering it to the card stock, spray liberally with Frost White Shimmer Paint and Rubbing Alcohol mixed in a Stampin’ Spritzer. Leave it flat allow it to dry.

Tip: My recipe is about 2/3rds fill a Stampin’ Spritzer with Rubbing Alcohol and add about 2 – 3 drops of Frost White Shimmer Paint and shake well to ensure it is well mixed
