Sending Hope During Breast Cancer Awareness Month

by Joanne James10. October 2016 09:00

Another Monday, another week my lovely readers! Today I have a card that ties in with CASology's current cue card and uses this week's CAS(E) This Sketch layout:

   

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month; most of us know someone whose life has been affected by this terrible disease so today's card was designed to send a little love and support to someone whose life has been touched in this way. Here's my card:

 

Here's the low-down on today's card:

A Pop of Pink - I used the Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Paper for the inset panel on my card today and its colours inspired my 'monochrome with a pop of pink' colour scheme.

A Card That's All Heart - There are lots of lovely patterns in the Pop of Pink paper set, but for a card that's all about sending love and hope I had to go with the itty bitty heart pattern. I used my Sunshine Wishes heart thinlit for the scribbly heart that bridges the inset panel in bright Melon Mambo pink for a single image to compliment my sentiment.

Words of Support - My sentiment is a combination of the diecut 'hope' which is also from the Sunshine Wishes thinlits die set and the co-ordinating Sunshine Sayings stamp set (available as a bundle with 10% off when purchased together), stamped onto my extra-thick Whisper White card base in Archival Black ink.

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:

 

You can see all of my 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

I have the first of this month's technique classes this morning - this one featuring the Star of Light set. Followed by a double school run and an evening at the swimming pool as Rebecca finishes her Competitive Starts qualification (shallow racing dives to the uninititated!) I'll share some of my class cards later in the week. Meanwhile, enjoy your day and I'll be back tomorrow with another project.

Until then, happy stampin'!
