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.

CP Designs Inks

As may of you may already know I love Catherine Pooler's Inks!!  They ink up stamps do well with just a few light taps of the stamp to the ink, the colors all go together from each collection so no weird colors that don't go together. and the ink once wiped of does not transfer ink from one color to the next!! 
The first collection was named the Party Collection  and is composed of highly saturated bright and fun colors!!  I have used mine so much I just ordered the entire set of reinkers!!  I also can use these reinkers to watercolor with my water brush and for techniques that require more ink instead of using my ink pad!


The Party Collection
There is also two colors in the Neutrals Collection.

Now Catherine had begun releasing a new collection of colors called the Spa Collection!! These inks are a less saturated color which allows them to have more muted color.

Catherine has revealed the first 6 colors and they are Gorgeous!!



The next two colors will be revealed Monday on Facebook …

Michelle's 50th Birthday Bash Blog Hop

Welcome!! I am glad you were able to hop along with us today to celebrate Michelle's 50th Birthday!!  



You should have come here from Kelly's Blog. If you want to see the whole blog hop list or start from the beginning go to the  CAS-ual Fridays Blog
Here is my card to celebrate!!





I wanted to make a special card for Michelle, so I made my first trifold card.  The card is mostly just one layer with the Ballerinas glues to each panel. I used Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide inks and with layering and masking created the floor.  For the stage lighting I used masking paper and sponged Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers, and Wilted Violet Distress inks I them sprayed water on top and picked it up with a paper towel to get a distressed look. For the stamping I used Flirty Fuchsia, Party Dress, All the Jazz, Icing on the Cake and Sweet Sixteen inks from Catherine Pooler Designs . The stamps are all from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps…
