Colon cancer awareness

Dark blue is a color for Colon cancer awareness. I thought that card which is entirely dark blue may be too depressing, so i added light background and some green leaves to symbolise hope. Leaves are die-cutted out of Sticker Paper and covered with Lator Gator glitter.

As a focal image I used Survivor Stamp Set #713. Image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with markers. Then I used Sakura Glue Pen to adhere the Sapphire Silk Sparkle N Soft to the ribbon and tiny hearts. It's die-cutted with circle die and edges are inked with Summer Sky ink. For the matting layer I adhered  2 1/2" Double Sided "Tear-ific Tape" to the cardstock and cutted out with scalloped circle die. I added Loyalty glitter on top.

For the background I used MemoryBox Honey Comb Stencil and DreamWeaver White Embossing Paste. To color the paste I used Salty Ocean Distress ink. While stenciled paste was still wet I covered it with Velvet Sparkle Embossing powder. After paste was dry, I heat embossed the powder. The small white dots you see all over are speckles of Super Thick White embossing powder. You don't need a Versamark ink to adhere them. Most important thing is to remember that you have to heat them underneath the paper. 

Two leaf flourishes are die-cutted out of Sticker Paper. One is covered with Cloud Nine glitter and other with Loyalty glitter. I colored parts of the white flourish with light blue marker. Color was added to the back side of the Sticker Paper. It is quite thin and the marker bleed right through.

I also added some tiny pearls, lace and  Mon Ami Gabby Diamond Mesh. Edges of the matting layer are covered with 1/4" Double Sided "Tear-ific" Tape and Loyalty glitter.

Lymphoma cancer awareness

 A Lime Ribbon brings awareness to Lymphoma. September is an awareness month for this and several other cancers. If you are interested to find more about awareness months and colors, check the Choose Hope web page. But first, little bit about my card.

I used SNS Awareness Stamp set #714. Ribbon image is stamped with Versamark ink and  heat embossed with Green Apple embossing powder. I cutted ribbon with x-acto knife and inked it with Mowed Lawn distress ink. Label shaped matting layer was die cut out of cardstock which was covered with 2 1/2" Double Sided "Tear-ific Tape". After adhering oval layer on top, I covered rest of the tape with Luau Green Velvet Glitter.

Sentiment is stamped with Mowed Lawn distress ink and heat embossed with Clear Detail EP. I used Sakura Glue pen to draw lines to upper and bottom edges of the layer and covered it with Luau Green Velvet Glitter.

It's simple card. I used pattern paper for the background and matted it to the cardstock sheet which was covered with 1/4" Double Sided "Tear-ific" Tape (only to the edges). After that I applied Luau Green Velvet Glitter to the rest of the revealing tape. I also added few pearls.

Awareness - All cancers

Today I share a Lavender card for all cancers awareness.

I stamped the image from Survivor #713 set all over the background with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Velvet Sparkle EP. Then I inked it with Milled Lavender and Shaded Lilac Distress Inks.

Sentiment is stamped with Shaded Lilac Distress ink to the white cardstock. I added Versamark ink all over the sentiment layer and heat embossed with Velvet Sparkle EP.

I die cutted two butterflies with Die-Version Awareness Butterfly die. One out of white cardstock and second from Sticker Paper. I covered second butterfly with Blissful Blue Sparkle N Soft and used the scissors to cut off the wings. I adhered ribbon center to the cardstock butterfly and a little rhinestone heart to embellish it. For the butterfly silhouette I traced the outline of the Awareness Butterfly die to the white cardstock and cut it out. Then I stamped the words all over it with Shaded Lilac Distress ink,  added Versamark ink on top and heat embossed with Velvet Sparkle EP.

I don't like to waste anything, so I used leftovers inside of the card.

I adhered 3/4" Double-Sided "Tear-ific" Tape to the left side of the card base and also adhered background layer and Die-Version Loopy Lace die-cut to their place. Rest of the sticky tape was covered with Cloud Nine Velvet Glitter.

Materials used:
Stamp credits: Survivor #713;

Sparkling poppies

It's time for a new challenge at the Stamping Sensation. The theme is Anything Goes with a stamp and a Die

Our sponsor this month is Tattered Lace who are very generously offering one lucky winner a £50 store voucher to spend at their on line store. The award winning Tattered Lace company needs little introduction, they are synonymous with quality products coupled with the unique style and flair of Stephanie Weightman, you will find the whole range of products on the website here as well as regular inspiration on their blog here.

The main panel on my card is inked with distress inks. After making sure that inks are dry, I stamped the image from DoCraft Botanical Print set with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with Opline embossing powder. It is clear EP with cosmic shimmer. Then I added more distress inks on top to make the image pop out. 

I die cutted MemoryBox Prim Poppy out of the main panel and then die cutted same poppies out of white cardstock. With Brushable Glue I adhered Lator Gator and Gypsy Red glitters to the white poppies. Using inlaid technique I pieced everything together.

Background layer is also inked with Distress inks. I used Memento inks to stamp text and large grass from  DoCraft Botanical Print set and short grass with Flonz Stamps. With Sakura Glue pen I added little dots of Gypsy Red glitter to mimic flowers growing in the grass.
The little Ladybug is made with Glossy Accents. I placed oval drops of Glossy Accents to the wax paper and let them dry. Then I colored them with red and black markers. Before adhering them to final project I colored bottom of the Ladybug white. Otherwise it is transparent.

 To add more interest and texture to the background, I used Imagination Crafts Honey Suckle stencil, Versamark ink and Opline embossing powder. Little butterflies are die cutted with dies from Cheery Lynn Designs Mini Dimensional Butterflies set.

I hope you join with us this month. The theme is simple - dies and stamps. And prize is awesome! Take a look to the Stamping Sensation blog to see rules and inspiration from the design team.

Sparkle N Sprinkle August Reveal

Sparkle N Sprinkle and Die-Versions are partnering up for a very special joint blog hop, called the Awareness Campaign.  A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the newly released Die-Versions dies and the stamp sets revealed in the joint blog hop will go to help with cancer research.  
Almost every one has been touched by cancer is one way or another.  Either you or a family member has had cancer or you know someone who has had cancer.  The Designers from both teams are joining together to help the fight to eradicate all cancers by inspiring you.


Die-Versions is debuting NINE new Die-Versions low profile dies (July 2015 Reveal - scroll down to the end of the reveal) and Sparkle N Sprinkle is revealing THREE stamp sets for this Awareness Campaign.  All stamp sets will be 20% off until Aug 3.  

Sparkle N Sprinkle
Pink Ribbon Background 408  (digi version DIGI408)
Survivor 713    (digi version DIGI713T)
Awareness 714   (digi version  DIGI714T)

A Grand Prize winner will be chosen from comments left on the Designers' blogs and will be announced on August 4th.  You won't know who the Mystery Designer is until after the Joint Blog hop, so remember to leave a comment with each of the Designers.  

The Winner will be announced on the Die-Versions Facebook page, the Sparkle N Sprinkle Facebook page, the DV Blog, and on the SNS Blog and will receive a $25 gift certificate from BOTH Die-Versions and Sparkle N Sprinkle.

We hope you enjoy the Awareness Joint Blog Hop as much as we have enjoyed creating new projects for it.  We also hope that we have inspired you as well.  Thanks for joining us and remember to comment on each of the Designers' blogs to be eligible for the Grand Prize.  (We love reading them too since your comments also inspire us.)  

The Sparkle N Sprinkle Creative Challenge also begins today with lots of prizes and recognition badges.  Find out how you can become a SNS Featured Artist with special recognition on the SNS Facebook page as well as the Creative Challenge Winner's post.  From time to time, we also have special prizes just for Featured Artists.  The theme is always Anything Goes using Loose Glitter, Embossing Powder, and/or Flock.

For my awareness project I chose color Gold. Gold is for Childhood cancer.
I used SNS Awareness #714 stamp set and Dia-Versions Awareness Butterfly (DV-482) die on my card. This sentiment is actually in one row. I stamped it in three parts to get the words below each other.  For the focal point I die cutted Awareness Butterfly out of white cardstock. Butterfly was inked with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Gold Detail EP. I added acetate behind the same white CS piece I die cutted the butterfly and adhered it back to its place on top of the acetate. I think it is called inlaid die cutting. Edges of the rectangular layer are also inked with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Gold Detail EP.

For the background I used one of my favorite technique with glitters - Lace Background. I covered piece of cardstock with 2 1/2" Double Sided "Tear-ific Tape" and added lace on top. I rubbed Cloud Nine glitter through the lace to the tape. After removing lace I covered rest of the sticky parts with Golden Wheat glitter.

For the golden ribbon I die cutted another butterfly out of cardstock which was covered with 2 1/2" Double Sided "Tear-ific Tape". I used scissor to cut the wings off. Ribbon part was covered with Golden Wheat Glitter. This entire layer is popped up with rubber foam and made as a shaker. Behind the butterfly are Suze Weiberg's Golden Beadazzeles and Clear Microbeads.

To add some more interest to the card I used Dia-Versions Loopy Lace below the focal layer and some pearls in center of the ribbon. 

Hopefully you came from Jess blog.  Your next stop on the Awareness Campaign Blog Hop is Emmy.  If you get lost along the way or have a problem with a link, the complete list of Designers is located on both the Die-Versions Blog as well as the Sparkle N Sprinkle Blog.  Happy Hopping!
