Thanks for joining me today along with 24 Stampin’ Up! demos. We are showcasing our Favourites from the 2017/2018 Annual Catalogue. If you came from the lovely Amity Knight, thanks for continuing on to me. I hope you take time to make your way around the entire hop. Once you’ve finished on my page click on the next button and hop on to Megan’s fabulous creations.
It’s so hard to pick a favourite from this Catalogue. My list of favourites grows every time I look on Pinterest or Facebook. Who says you can only have one favourite???
So I looked through my Catalogue and when I got to page 96 my heart said I needed to use Ribbon of Courage as my favourite today. This stamp set was inspired by Million $ Sales Achiever Patty Bennett.
So many people are affected by cancer. Cancer recently took the life of my brother-in-law. Four out of five members of my immediate family have survived cancer. In 2012 I was diagnosed with Lymphoma and just last Tuesday I had my oncology checkup. I’ve been in remission for nearly 5 years now. So this is why I’ve chosen Ribbon of Courage as my favourite.
Each type of cancer is represented by a different coloured ribbon. Lymphoma is Lime so I made a card using the new Lemon Lime Twist (this happens to be my favourite new In-Colour)
I love the simplicity of this card. Lemon Lime Twist, Basic Black and Whisper White.
I’ve coloured the little hearts on the ribbon with my Lemon Lime Twist Stampin’ Write Marker.
Next I thought I’d make a pink card which represents Breast cancer.
I used Melon Mambo Water Colour Pencil and an Aqua Painter for the background. This is my “Angel” using the die cut ribbon.
I’ve used Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper as all “Angels” deserve to shine.
In my last card I’ve used Gold for Children’s cancer.
I’ve heat embossed the ribbon in Gold embossing powder. I’ve also used some of my favourite DSP, Bundle of Love.
Now my ESAD Blog wouldn’t be complete without a picture of my assistant Marvi the Monster. I don’t think he liked my angel because he pushed it off the table.
I hope that you have enjoyed the cards I’ve made today. Please feel free to leave me a comment. Make sure you click on the next button and hop over to Megan’s inspiring project.
