Strong & Beautiful Diorama Card

Strong & Beautiful Diorama Card

The Strong & Beautiful Diorama card is a combination of several different ideas that came together beautifully!

The Stamping with the Stars group decided to create and share a Pop-Up Diorama card.

I had never made one before, but it was fun, easy and I am sure I will be making more in the future.

So…

Let’s see what everyone has created!

 

I love EVERYTHING about this card.

  • the soft colors-Petal Pink, Soft Sea Foam, Fresh Fig
  • the muted patterns on the Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper
  • and of course, the Sparkle Glimmer Paper

 

Stampin' Up! Strong & Beautiful stamp set combines perfectly in this Pop-Up Diorama card. For details and instructions, please click through to my blog! #CrackedPotStamper #stampinup #DOswts308

 

The front is gorgeous!

But check out the inside…LOVE it!

Time for the DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge, this week it is a "Color My World" Challenge. 

This week I was inspired by this fabulous color combination-I absolutely adore it

I love being able to re-purpose and recycle a stamp set case into a tool kit for my adhesives and other goodies. Everything that I need fits securely inside and I've even included a check list to make sure everything gets back into it. Genius! I know, right?

Stamp Set: none

Paper: Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper, Glimmer Paper-Assortment Pack (SOLD OUT)

Ink: none

It's All in the Details:

1st Annual Ultimate Pink Blog Hop-Pink Monday!

Pink Blog Hop

Welcome to the first ever Ultimate Pink Blog Hop – a collection of ideas from Stampin’ UP! demonstrators all over the globe featuring shades of pink in honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Over the past year, Cancer has touch several lives in my small circle of family and friends. 

Cancer doesn't care what color your skin is, what your political views are, where you live or who you live with. Cancer doesn't care about how old or young you are, your financial status, your level of education or even the color of your skin. 

Bottom line…Cancer just doesn't care-it has no boundaries.

My desire for sharing in this project is to raise awareness for Breast Cancer-for early detection, for treatment options but most importantly to give hope and encouragement to someone that is struggling with this disease that does not discriminate.
