Calling All Sistahs February Reminder Post




Hello Sistahs and Bosom Buddies!!


It is the 17th of the month and that means that I am here with the CAS-ual Fridays Encouragement Squad to remind you to do your monthly self breast exam and schedule your mammogram if you haven't had one yet this year!!  Please stop by the Calling All Sistahs February Reminder post to see what the Encouragement Squad have made this month!!


Be sure to check out all the Calling All Sistahs collection of stamps and dies designed shortly after Michele, the owner of CAS-ual Fridays, was diagnosed  with Breast Cancer in 2015.  She designed them with the purpose of donating 50% profits to breast cancer awareness programs and to provide you with awesome stamps to remind and encourage your friends!


Here is my card:




Ingredients:

White card stock
Pink paper
Picked Raspberry distress ink

For this A2 card I started with white card stock for the base of the card.  I took the light pink paper, inked the edges with Picked Raspberry distress ink and attached that to the card.  I took some different shades of pink paper and the Heart Board Fri-Die and cut out the heart and placed that on the center of the card.  I took the Love Ya Fri-Die and cut out the hot pink paper and put the love ya on the top of the card.  I then took the Calling All Sistahs girl stamp and the Picked Raspberry distress ink and stamped girl on the bottom right side of the card.

Be sure to stop by the CAS-ual Friday Blog to see what the other Girl Friday's from the Encouragement Squad have created for our February Sistahs Reminder!


Then why not stop by the CAS-ual Fridays store to see all the wonderful stamp sets there are to make cards of encouragement with!!  If you decide that there are one or two stamp sets that you just have to have then use this code: cas-comfort to get 15% off stamps and dies!!  Thank you Michele, for letting me pass this on to my blog followers!!


Tomorrow will be the start of a new Encouragement Challenge and we would love to have you participate!  You might even be the winner of the prize!!  I sure hope you will join us for this Challenge!!


Thanks for stopping by!

Scrapy Land Challenge #83


Hello Blogging Friends!!


Today is the start of a new challenge at Scrapy Land ~ Scrapy Land Challenge #83 ~ the theme is always ANYTHING GOES using a brand of die that Scrapy Land sells.  We have TWO WINNERS for each challenge.  One will be a random winner and the other one is chosen by the Design Team.  Each winner will receive a $10 gift certificate to Scrapy Land.


Scrapy Land carries over 55 brands of dies, so chances are you have a few of the brands in your stash!  You can see all the brands carried under the Products category.

Please link your project back to Scrapy Land Challenge #83 and include a link to the challenge in your blog post.  It would aslo be extremely helpful if you would list the brands of dies used in your project. (Sometimes we can't tell if an item is a die cut or chipboard.)

Die-Versions Curly Words Hugs die
Assorted paper from my stash
Pink fun foam

Shaker toppings
Picked Raspberry distress ink
White card stock

For this A2 card I started with white card stock for the base of the card.  I took the patterned paper, inked the edges with Picked Raspberry distress ink and then added it to the card.  Next I took the heart die from the Queen & Co Heart Throb Shaker Kit and cut out the heart with two different papers, the polka dot paper for the top of the shaker and the solid pink for the background of the heart.  I attached the solid pink heart to the card, then I put the foam heart from the kit and placed that on top of the pink heart.  I filled in the heart with the toppings and then put the clear piece over that to hold the toppings inside the heart.  I cut out the Die-Versions Curly Words Hugs die with the pink fun foam and added that under the heart.  I cut out  Impression Obsession Heart Stems die and tucked them behind the shaker heart.  I took the pink & white bakers twine and wrapped that around the card several times and then tied it in a knot.
