Okay, onto the card part. I made a simple card today. I used the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps "Hope Ribbon" and "Hope Fri-die" to create my card. There is a FABULOUS new sequin mix in the CAS-ual Fridays Stamp Store that goes with the "Calling All Sistahs" Collection that I was supposed to use but alas, the post office did not cooperate in getting the sequins to me on time. So I just used the fabulous stamps and dies in the collection instead.

I started off my card by embossing a pink piece of card stock and adhering it to a natural color, A2, top folding card base.  I added a pink scallop scrap onto the right side of the card front.

I then stamped the flower ribbon from the "Hope Ribbon" stamp set and heat embossed it using pink embossing powder. I used a pink Zig Clean Color brush marker to color in the hearts and then went over the colored hearts with a Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkler marker.

After, I mounted the white panel over a piece of pink patterned paper and adhered it over the scalloped strip using foam adhesive to give it some pop.

I die cut the "hope" sentiment out of charcoal gray card stock using the "Hope Fri-die." I adhered it to the front of the card and gave it a coat of sparkle from the Spectrum Noir marker. My last step was to use glossy accents over the heart and the sentiment. Like I said, I created a simple card but I like how it came out.

The stamps I used are available at CAS-ual Fridays Stamps. Michele designed these stamps to promote breast cancer awareness and donates 50% of the proceeds from the "Calling All Sistahs" Collection to programs that promote breast cancer research and awareness. The new sequin mix by Pretty Pink Posh is available today. As with all the other products in the Sistahs Collection, 50% of the profits will go to ncbh.org as well. However, unlike the stamps and dies, when the sequins are sold out, they will no longer be available.
