Today’s card was designed for my Bloom and Butterflies Team Challenge and it features the lovely Stampin Up Ribbon of Courage Stamp Set.
Today’s 10 in 20 Video is a beautiful ribbon of “Hope” featuring the Stampin’ Up! Hello Darling Stamp Set. As you know October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease.
I made this card for October to honor Breast Cancer Awareness month. Get ready NASCAR fans… This weekend is the Dollar General 300 Miles of Courage here at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Go Pink!!!
I was inspired to make this card after I read about the Laugh for the Cure Program. It’s a grass-roots breast cancer charity event that was founded to remember loved ones lost, celebrate survivors and help individuals currently impacted by the disease. Laughter is the best medicine and the PG comedy shows have universal appeal to all audiences. Laugh for the Cure® is an Affiliate Event of Susan G. Komen for the Cure and is dedicated to furthering the Komen mission by combining comedy and charity. Visit our the Laugh for the Cure website to learn more about how you can begin ‘laughing for a cure’! What a great program and for a great cause. Therefore, I decided to pull out my ribbon stamp and make a card that I thought would beautifully reflect this program and all the many women who represent it!
The technique I used to make this card is fun! You take and cut a piece of white tissue paper and scrunch it up in your hand. Then take a glue stick and coat your paper really well. Open the tissue paper and press it flat on the white paper. This give a sort of faux effect! It’s fabulous!
Open your Idea Book and Catalog to page #208 and check out the “Under $10” stamps!!! That’s where you will find this precious ribbon that can be used to support so many causes. It’s called the Ribbon of Hope #115552, $7.95.
The ribbon is also one of my favorites and you’ll see me use it often!!! It’s the Organza Ribbon by Stampin’ Up! As for the tearing portion of this card… you can use a tear edges; however, I enjoy tearing it free hand.
Thanks for stopping by!!! Have a Great Week!!!
