Calling All Sistahs January Reminder

**This is 1 of two posts I have today.  If you are looking for the Scrapy Land Challenge #82 please go here.  Thanks!**





Hello Sistahs!!


It is the 17th of the month and that means that I am here with the CAS-ual Fridays Encouragement Squad to remind you to do your monthly self breast exam and schedule your mammogram if you haven't had one yet this year!!  Please stop by the Calling All Sistahs January Reminder post to see what the Encouragement Squad have made this month!!


Be sure to check out all the Calling All Sistahs collection of stamps and dies designed shortly after Michele, the owner of CAS-ual Fridays, was diagnosed  with Breast Cancer in 2015.  She designed them with the purpose of donating 50% profits to breast cancer awareness programs and to provide you with awesome stamps to remind and encourage your friends!


Here is my card:



Ingredients:

White card stock
Water color paper
Versamark
White embossing powder
Picked Raspberry Oxide ink
Worn Lipstick Oxide ink
Picked Raspberry distress ink

For this A2 card I started with White card stock for the base of the card.  I took a piece of watercolor paper and rubbed the Worn Lipstick Oxide ink all over the paper, then I took some Picked Raspberry Oxide ink and rubbed that on top of the Worn Lipstick Oxide ink.  I took a spritz bottle of water and spritzed some water onto the paper and then I dried it with my heat tool.  When it was dry I stamped the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Peace and Comfort stamp set onto the center of the paper with Versamark and then I heat embossed it with white embossing powder.  I took the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Tin Roof stamp set and stamped the smaller stamp across the bottom of the paper with Versamark and then heat embossed that with white embossing powder.  I then inked edges with Picked Raspberry distress ink and then added the paper to the card.

Be sure to stop by the CAS-ual Friday Blog to see what the other Girl Friday's from the Encouragement Squad have created for our January Sistahs Reminder!


Then why not stop by the CAS-ual Fridays store to see all the wonderful stamp sets there are to make cards of encouragement with!!  If you decide that there are one or two stamp sets that you just have to have then use this code: cas-comfort to get 15% off stamps and dies!!  Thank you Michele, for letting me pass this on to my blog followers!!


Tomorrow will be the start of a new Encouragement Challenge and we would love to have you participate!  You might even be the winner of the prize!!


Thanks for stopping by!

Scrapy Land Challenge #82

**This is 1 of two posts I have today.  If you are looking for the Calling All Sistahs January Reminder post please go here.  Thanks!!**



Hello Blogging Friends!!


Today is the start of Scrapy Land Challenge #82 (***& DESIGN TEAM CALL*** ~ the theme is always ANYTHING GOES using any brand of die that Scrapy Land sells.  We now have TWO WINNERS for each challenge.  One will be a random winner and the other is chosen by the Design Team.  Each winner will receive a $10 gift certificate to Scrapy Land.


Scrapy Land carries over 55 brands of dies, so chances are you have a few of the brands in your stash!  You can see all the brands carried under the Products category.


Please link your project back to the Scrapy Land Challenge #82 page and include the link to the Scrapy Land Challenge #82 in your blog post.  It would also be extremely helpful if you would list the brands of dies used in your project.  (Sometimes we can't tell if an item is a die cut or chipboard.)


Here is my card:




Ingredients:

Elizabeth Craft Designs Lace Heart die
Hearts embossing folder
Kraft card stock
Assorted paper from my stash
Sentiment
Black ink
Gold ink
Nuvo Mousse Gold 

For this 5 inch by 5 inch card I started with Kraft card stock for the base of the card.  I took a piece of red paper and a heart embossing folder and ran it through my Big Shot. I used my sandpaper block to distress the paper a bit and then I took a brush and brushed on some Nuvo Mousse Gold.  I cut out the Elizabeth Craft Designs Lace Heart die with white paper and rubbed more of the Nuvo Mousse Gold over that and then I stamped the sentiment with black ink onto the middle of the heart and added this to the card.  I took some gold ink and inked all around the edges of the card.


Please be sure to head on over to the Scrapy Land Challenge #82 to see all the wonderful creations the Design Team have made for this challenge.


Now it is your turn to create something for this challenge!!


Please remember to:
  • include at least one brand of die that Scrapy Land sells
  • include a link to this challenge on your blog post
  • listing the brands of dies used on your project would be extremely helpful

You have until February 4 to join in on the Scrapy Land Challenge #82 fun and have a chance of winning a $10 gift certificate to Scrapy Land.
