CAS reminder Sept 2018

Welcome back to this months Calling All Sistahs reminder to do your monthly self breast examination and to book your yearly mammogram if it is due. Please go to the Calling All Sistahs Blog to read this months survival story.

And now on to this months reminder card...


I decided to make a shaker card this month. I started by making a shaker frame using a frame die and backed it with white fun foam. The die cut the stamped Hope Ribbon with the Ruffled Ribbon Fri-die is also supported by a ribbon cut out of fun foam glued under the top ribbon but under the acetate top. The sequins are from the previously available Sistahood Sparkle sequin mix. The word hope was die cut out of pink glitter paper using the Hope Fri-die and the sentiment from was white heat embossed on black cardstock.

See you tomorrow for this month's Encouragement Challenge.

I hope you are having a great day!!

Calling All Sistahs August 2018

Welcome back to this months Calling All Sistahs reminder to do your monthly self breast examination and to books your yearly mammogram if it is due. Please go to the Calling All Sistahs Blog to read this months survival story.

And now onto this months reminder card...


I kept this card clean and simple. I added worn lipstick distress oxide ink to a rectangular block sprayed it with water until it began to form droplets, flipped it over and smooshed onto a piece of watercolor paper.  Once it was dry, I used a stitched rectangle die and cut out the panel. I then stamped the Word Ribbon stamp in Black, mounted it onto another piece of watercolor paper cut using a larger stitched rectangle die, with foam tape. the card panel was then attached to a dark pink top folding card base.

Come back tomorroe for this months Encouragement Challenge.

I hope you are having a great day!!

July 2018 -CAS Reminder

Welcome to the Calling All Sistahs monthly reminder blog post.

We hold this blog hop on the 17th of each month as a reminder to do your monthly self-breast examination and to book your yearly mammogram if it is coming due.

When it comes to surviving breast cancer, early detection remains the most crucial step, and mammograms are the tools for this step. ~ NBCF.ORG

This months reminder card features three products from the Cas-ual Fridays Shop. I used the Calling All Sistahs and Word Ribbon stamp sets and the To Go Cup Fri-dies.



Michelle donates 50% of profits from the sale of the products in the Calling All Sistahs - Breast Cancer Awareness Collection to fund breast cancer research and awareness.

One Layer Wonders Lesson 3

Lesson 3 - Watercolor Under Painting.  This was one of the most difficult cards for me to make!!  It looked like a hot mess!!!  None the less I persisted, set it aside to dry and I left the stamp in my MISTI, so I could stamp over the distress oxide inks when dry. This made a huge difference.I then took my Artist Markers and added some color to the image, framed it up with a copic multiliner and called it done!!


Here is the finished card. On to lesson 4

Hope you have a great day!
