I think I'm slowly starting to get back into the swing of stamping again. It feels amazing--like sleeping in your own bed after a long vacation. I wanted to give my stamping mojo a bit of help getting started today, so I used this sketch for my inspiration.
Once I saw the sketch, I flipped through some of my stamps that I haven't used in a LONG time and decided to make a Breast Cancer card.
I stamped the floral image four times in Primrose Petal ink on Primrose Petal and Pink Pirouette card stock. I cut along the different layers of the floral image and layered them on top of each other. There are dimensionals behind each of the layers so it looks like the flower is exploding off the card. I finished the flower with a Rhinestone.
Of course I had to add the breast cancer ribbon behind the flower. I cut a length of ribbon and then used Glue Dots to hold it in place so the ribbon would keep its shape.
I added texture to the front of the card by using the Simply Scored Diagonal Plate to make the criss-cross pattern. Each of the score lines is 1/2" apart.
For the inside of the card, I rotated the thin strip of card stock up and down. I ran the top layer of card stock through the Big Shot using the Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder for added texture.
October is coming up quickly and that's breast cancer month. Remember, early detection is very important. I'm so glad my mother found it early and that she's still with me. Thanks for stopping by!
