The 2nd Annual Ultimate Pink Blog Hop

2nd Annual Ultimate Pink Blog Hop

We are going pink today to raise awareness of breast cancer and to honor those who have fought this disease. I would ask you to take a moment and send out your love and light to those families who have been affected, the courageous fighters, and those who are no longer with us.

Death rates from breast cancer continue to decline due to better screening and early detection, increased awareness, and continually improving treatment options. For this, we are all thankful and need to do all we can to continue this trend!

My card today is in honor of those personal friends who have battled with courage and grace.

sweet, simple, and heartfelt.

It can be challenging to know how to show up when someone is battling and struggling with the challenges of illness. I would encourage you to keep it sweet, simple, and heartfelt. Show up, sit, call, text, pray, and listen xo.

Stampin’Up! Smitten Mittens

Have you ever had a card in your head and then when you went to make it just morphed into something else? Yeah, this is one of those cards!

Make sure to comment as our days to win are dwindling down in the #30daybloggingchallenge

Stampin'Up! Smitten Mittens stamp set, christmas card, holiday card, DIY, papercrafts, lisa pretto, inkbigacademy stamps

Details:

So here is what I had in my head: a soft, almost baby color feel to a mitten card because that would be adorable right? But when I went to put these colors together they are really way more vibrant than I thought they would be and I totally loved it!

The card base is our Stampin’Up! Thick Whisper White Cardstock cut 5 1/2 x 8 1/2″. This card has a lot of “weight” to it and a nice sturdy base helps it hold up to all that stuff going on up front.

The middle layer is a 5 1/4 x 4″ So Saffron and the top layer is a 5 x 3 3/4″ Wisteria Wonder.

The Wisteria Wonder layer was run thru the Big Shot with the Dynamic Cable Embossing Folder. Remember that when you use one of our Dynamic Embossing Folders you need just one plate to create the impression.

The mittens were stamped in So Sffron on So Saffrom using Stampin’Up!’s Smitten Mitten stamp set. The Many Mittens Framelits made quick work of cropping out all the images.

The sweet heart pattern was also created with the Smitten Mitten Bundle. I love the look of stamping it in the same color as the cardstock

A little tie of our Whisper White Baker’s Twine keeps those mittens from getting lost

Details:

  • This great 2 step candle stamp is form the Merry Patterns stamp set. It is free to all who place a $300 order during the months of September and October. It can be your personal order or you can gather some orders together from friends.
  • The card base is Stampin’Up! Thick Whisper White cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2″. I lightly scored it with my Stampin’Trimmer to create a nice crisp fold.
  • I created mats in Soft Sky and Night of Navy for my image. The Night of Navy layer was run thru the Big Shot with the Ruffled Dynamic Embossing Folder.
  • I created a tag for my candles by cutting the Whisper White cardstock to 2 x 4 1/4″. The Scalloped Tag Topper Punch cropped out one end.
  • I stamped the candle image in Tuxedo Black Memento Black ink. The candle flames are stamped in Daffodil Delight. The candles are stamped in Soft Sky and Marina Mist. This stamp set is a photopolymer which makes it so easy to line up the images and create details.
  • I tied on some of the Stitched Daffodil Delight Ribbon, along with the Soft Sky Classic Weave Ribbon
  • A Lace Doily helps anchor the image.
