Calling All Sistahs Blog Hop

Welcome to the Calling all Sistahs Blog hop!!

It's the 17th of the month, and you know what that means. It is time for your reminder to do your monthly self-exams and schedule your yearly mammograms. 

Michelle from CAS-ual Friday's designed a line of stamps and dies especially for this cause when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. You can read her story here.

I have made two cards for this hop used the Calling All Sistahs stamp set and Ribbon of Hope stamp set.

My first card was stamped and embossed with Rose Gold embossing powder on Neenah Solar White cardstock. I decided to add a frame and it was embossed three times to make it look metallic.

My second card was embossed with white embossing powder, colored with distress inks. I added some water drops to the ink and then used a paper towel to remove the water after about 10 seconds. I love the distressed look. The fishtail flags were also inked up and embossed with black and white embossing powder.

Thank you for hopping today and remember this month there will be a $15 Gift Certificate given to 3 people that comment along the hop. You have until May 19th @ midnight EST to comment.

Happy Birthday to You!!

I made this card for the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #147 - Birthday Girl. I used the Tin Roof stamp and embossed it in silver. I cut down that panel with a stitched rectangle die from Simon Says Stamp. Next I layered the panel in a piece of silver cardstock, and mounted on this on a card base of blue violet from Simon Says Stamp. The sentiment is from All About You by CAS-ual Fridays. I cut the words apart to make the sentiment horizontal and stamped it on a stitched fishtail tag of the same blue violet cardstock and embossed it in white. The die cut You is Is from the 2 Yous dies from CAS-ual Fridays. I die cut 3 white and 1 blue violet and layered the 3 white die cuts together and embossed the top 3 times with silver embossing powder and finished by mounting them on the blue violet die slightly offset.

Thank you for coming by and having a look.  Susan

Tin Roof

OMG!!! I got the Tin Roof stamp set from CAS-ual Fridays today and it is Beautiful!!  I could not wait to play with it!!
I started with the larger of the two Tin Roof stamps and inked it up with Versamark ink and embossed it with white embossing powder. I then inked the panel with Distress inks.  I die cut the Thanks from the panel using the Smiling Fri-dies. The panel was then mounted over a purple piece of cardstock and stamped a sentiment from the  Bravo stamp set on a white stitched flag die cut.

For my second card I used the smaller Tin Roof image stamp and embossed it with black embossing powder. I used my Gansai watercolors to color my Panel.  Once it was dried I used a wavy die to cut out a section of the card panel. The word Smile is from the new Smiling Fri-dies. and I used the wavy die to line up the sentiment from the Hope Ribbon stamp set onto the card panel between the wavy panel pieces.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look :)

Inspiration Nation Day 3

It is Day 3 and the mood board is up and the colors are beautiful and shapes are geometric!!
For this card I used the abstract stencil from MFT and inked up areas with Sweet Mango, Ocean Mist, and Bubblegum ink by GKD.  I used some masking paper to mask of areas of the stencils rather than have the inks blend. I cut the tag using Tag Buddies Fri-dies.  I used the inlaid die cut technique for the words Love ya.  The word MOM is part of a stamp from Hero Arts that I masked off to just ink up the word. I finished it up with gold twine and sequins.

I hope you liked today's card!!  Thanks for stopping by!!

Browns and Greens

These are not colors I use very much. The Mood board for Day 2 of Inspiration Nation at StampNation is up and when I saw it this morning I did not have clue what I would make. I went to my stamps and looked through them and found a set called Fall Foliage from Gina K Designs and used the colors from the mood board and created this card.
The embellishment was a left over from another card I made recently.
Thanks for coming by and having a look!!

Online Card Class - Sheer and Clear Day 3

This class has been really fun and informative. Today I have used acetate on my card and not to make a shaker card. I embossed it with an embossing folder and sandwiched the acetate between 2 layers of cardstock with a square cut out of it making a "window" to the inside. The leaves and flowers were cut out of a piece of watercolor paper I previously used Color Bursts on and then stamped and die cut the flowers using the Enchanted Garden stamps and dies I got from the Beautiful World - Stamp of Approval collection.

Have a great Sunday, Susan.
