Think Pink- Breast Cancer Awareness Month


Hi Stampers! 

Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Hand Stamped Sentiments chose to have a “Think Pink” for their HSSTP88 Challenge and I decided to create a card for this challenge using the SSC225 sketch from Stamping 411.

Since I had stamped one of the images on an angle, I modified the sketch slightly with angling the ribbon as well:-)  That is one thing that I love about sketch challenges, you can modify them slightly to use them for inspiration! 








To create this card:

Use the Embossing Buddy® to de-static a piece of Pink Pirouette Designer Series Paper and stamp the dress form image with Versamark™ ink and the round seal image for the “sentiment”.  Apply Stampin’ Emboss Black Embossing Powder and heat with the Heat Tool.  Once the embossing powder has cooled, lightly sponge Melon Mambo around the images. 

Using Basic Black Classic Ink, stamp the remaining collage images (stamping off the paper first for some of the images to give depth) on the piece with the dress form.  Use the Distressing Tool along with your fingernail to distress the edges and sponge with Basic Black.

Mount onto Basic Black cardstock, add the layers (previously embossed with the Square Lattice and Finial Press Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folders) and finish off the card with the 5/8” Basic Black Satin Ribbon bow and Antique Brad. 

Stamp Sets:  Established Elegance

 Ink: Versamark™, Basic Black, Melon Mambo

Cardstock: Pretty in Pink, Basic Black, Pink Pirouette DSP

 Accessories:  Big Shot™, Finial Press and Square Lattice Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folders, 1” and 1 ¼” Circle Punches, Antique Brad, Embossing Buddy®, Heat Tool, Stampin’ Emboss® Black Embossing Powder, 5/8” Basic Black Satin Ribbon

I personally know several women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer, so this month has been a prayerful month for me as I lift these dear women up to the Lord in prayer.  I am praying for a complete healing and that their lives would glorify the Lord!

Thanks again for stopping by and God Bless!
