3rd Annual Ultimate Pink Blog Hop

3rd Annual Ultimate Pink Blog Hop

 

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services,

“Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women. About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point.

The good news is that most women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early. A mammogram – the screening test for breast cancer – can help find breast cancer early when it’s easier to treat.

National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a chance to raise awareness about the importance of detecting breast cancer early. Make a difference! Spread the word about mammograms, and encourage communities, organizations, families, and individuals to get involved.”

I love participating in this blog hop each year because it brings Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world together creating Pink projects to raise awareness for a disease that affects ALL of us.

DSC#286: Healing Hugs Get Well Soon

Sending a Healing Hugs Get Well Soon card is easy with this beautiful photorealistic flower.

The DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge for this week it is a “showCASE” Challenge.

I enjoy the “showCASE” challenge because it gives me an opportunity to take an image from the catalog and CaSE it (Copy and Share Everything).

It also gives me an opportunity to try new things…

  • color combination
  • layout or design
  • new stamp sets, tools or embellishments

I strongly encourage you to pull out your catalog and try it! I would love to see the creative projects you come up with!

This week I was inspired by the need for a get well card.

  • I love the vibrant colors used in this card as well as the sentiment.
  • Unfortunately (or fortunately-depending on how you look at it), I don’t have either of the stamp sets (Sorry for Everything and Bunch of Blossoms) used in the original so I opted to try out the new Healing Hugs stamp set.
  • I love the beautiful floral image featured in this set and I know you will too!

Healing Hugs stamp set, Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and Color Combination Inspiration consisting of Calypso Coral, Grapefruit Grove, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green & Soft Suede.

  • These stamps are textured with varying densities of concentrated rubber resulting in ink opacities that produce a realistic complexity and intensity.
  • All you have to do is stamp the image onto Whisper White cardstock and the stamp does all the work for you, adding beautiful details.
  • Did you notice the Subtle embossed texture on the Whisper White layer? It is the new Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder & I am absolutely in love with it!
