I often find mine in the Stampin' Up! catalog…it's 234 pages of awesomeness!
nifty ways to use products in ways I may not have thought of
Stampin' Up! has done the work for you…feel free to CaSE it!
Today's image that we are going to Copy and Selectively Edit is on page 117 of the new Annual Catalog.
Incidentally, if you do not have a Stampin' Up! demonstrator or a catalog-please let me know as I would love to pop one in the mail for you and earn your business.
This image was selected because it has a fun layout that could be adapted to many different sentiments and stamp sets. When I first looked at this picture, I immediately knew I wanted to use the new Ribbon of Courage stamp set.
My motivation was two-fold with this card…
the stamp set and catalog image
Prostate Cancer Awareness.
The light blue ribbon is a symbol for prostate cancer, which has recently affected my family. Thankfully for our family and loved one, it was found relatively early and he choose to fight it aggressively.
Cancer doesn't discriminate, it is an equal opportunity killer.
Please take the time to have your medical check ups regularly and encourage your loved ones as well.
Enough preaching…let's get crafty!

Time for the DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge, this week it is a "Product Spotlight" Challenge, featuring the new In-Colors for 2017/2018.
This week I was inspired by these 5 GORGEOUS new In-Colors…I absolutely love each of them.
I love the simple elegance of this card. It is quick and easy but the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper gives this sweet card a touch of elegance.
This paper reminds me of the fancy wallpaper patterns I would see while flipping through those gigantic wallpaper sample books, that weighed as much as a small child, to occupy myself (for what felt like hours) while my mom did her shopping.
What did I use to create this beauty? (scroll down to bottom for complete supply list and links)

It's All in the Details: the fantastic thing about this card is that there is very little stamping…it is mostly layering images that have been die cut.
The Hardwood background was stamped off once – to create a subtle image
The Designer Series Paper was cut on the diagonal to give the gingham a different look. And I like it!
I die cut the word love four times (3 from whisper white plus 1 from Sweet Sugarplum), adhered them together with the Fine-Tip Glue pen AND then added a thick layer of glue on top of the Sweet Sugarplum layer to give it an embossed and glossy look.
Always take the scenic route.
