Ribbon of Courage – All Things Are Possible

October is National Breast Cancer awareness month and like others my family has been touched by breast cancer and other forms of cancer.  I myself have battled non-hodgikins lymphoma and want to tell you first hand how important it is to reach out to those fighting this terrible battle.  I cherished every card and phone call I received.  Every visit and prayer that was said for and with me.  I learned how important it was to be remembered by others during a difficult time.

I plan to share other pink project throughout the month in support of Breast Cancer Awareness and want to remind all my family, friends, customers and followers how important it is to remember to have your mammograms and exams.  I just had mine yesterday and then spent the rest of the day shopping and with my sweet baby grandson…Lucas. Every day is a blessing!

Ribbon of Courage - Support and encourage friends and family that are fighting breast and other kinds of cancers. With faith all things are possible

  • The stamp set Ribbon Of Courage has both a solid ribbon and this beautiful flower and heart design ribbon.  You can keep it simple like I did here or have fun coloring.
  • The sentiments are ones that can be used whenever you want to send a message of encouragement.  I am partial to this one…’with faith all things are possible’.  Faith that my God was in control no matter the outcome is what got me through each and every day of my treatment.
  • The colors are Pink Pirouette with the floral design stamped in Melon Mambo.  The sweet die cut heart and rhinestone add a special touch to a very simple card.
  • You will notice this is a case from the annual catalog on page 97…just a very simple version.
  • Measurements below.

Painted Autumn Designer Paper/Buy 3 Get 1 Free Paper Promotion

The past two mornings in north Georgia have actually felt a bit like Fall!  I was ready to pull out my fall and winter clothes until I looked at the weather app…looks like I have to hold off for at least another week.  But today I’m going to enjoy the cooler temps and share a fall card!

Fun Fall colors in the Painted Autumn designer paper - and it's now on sale

  • The all over pattern of this pretty fall paper makes it so the rest of the card can be kept simple.  Just add a sentiment if you like or dress the sentiment up a bit like I did here.
  • Stampin’ Up!’s color coordination is what made me a fan early on.  It’s just so easy to pull colors from the printed paper knowing the card stock will match perfectly.

Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper

  • The fall patterns and colors make this paper perfect for fall projects but when you flip many of the patterns over you will see colors and patterns you can use all year long.  So now you have two things to love about our paper…the coordination and the versatility!

The Pretty Label Punch can appear like it is matted by cutting the label in half and adhering to the top and the bottom

  • The Pretty Label Punch from the Annual Catalog has a sweet shape. I like it the most when it looks like it’s matted with a second layer.  It’s a trick I teach in my classes and I love to see the newbies smile when they realize how easy it is to do.
  • The fall sprigs are from the Pick a Pumpkin Bundle and add some interest while keeping the card simple.
  • The final touch…a little bow made with our Solid Crushed Curry Twine and added with a mini glue dot.

  • Punch your sentiment with the Pretty Label Punch and then punch another layer in your mat color
  • Cut your mat layer in half
  • Adhere it to the back of the sentiment with a little peeking out on the top and bottom.
  • The back will look like the bottom pic with a space between the two halves.
