Cut it Up – Breast Cancer Awareness

As you know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and that’s the theme of our challenge this time at Cut it Up.  Our awesome sponsor, CAS-ual Fridays Stamps, is so generous.  They gave us lots of product to work with and I wanted to use it all!
Thank you so much, CAS-ual Fridays!  🙂

I got to work with a package of Sistahood Sparkle sequins (limited edition) which I used on two of the cards; two dies, the Ruffled Ribbon Die and the Hope Fri-Die; and the Hope Ribbon stamp set.

For my first card I masked off a rectangle using Post it notes and sponged Pretty in Pink Stampin’ Up ink.  Then with the mask still in place, I stamped the beautiful hope ribbon from the stamp set and put it on a couple of mats.  I die cut the Hope die in dark red and added some sequins here and there.  The embossing folder is Stripe by Darice. Then I wanted to make a shaker card using the Ruffled Ribbon and Hope dies and those delicious sequins.I thought I was finished, but you know the creative process!  There were other colors of the dies there on my desk that I cut out and didn’t use but didn’t want to throw away.  I layered the cast-off ribbon dies and hope dies and stamped a sentiment from the Hope Ribbon stamp set and came up with this:I absolutely LOVE that font, don’t you?  All the patterned paper is from the Preppy Princess stack from DCWV.

So, what will I do with my cards? you ask.  I was wondering the same thing so I googled where I might be able to send them.  It turns out there’s a great organization called Girls Love Mail that accepts handwritten cards and letters and delivers them to breast cancer patients.  Now all I have to do is write a letter inside each and send them on their way.  🙂

You should head on over to Cut it Up and check out what the other design team members did with their products from CAS-ual Fridays, then link up your own.  One random entrant will win a $15 gift code from our sponsor!  It could be you!

  1. They are all beautiful; but I must say, that first one is so cool! I love the way you masked that. It makes it look like hope is moving in and taking over the frame ~ so perfect!

    They are all so beautiful! I also love that you found a place that will accept them… it’s good to know they will be appreciated by someone who could really use the encouragement right now! 🙂
