February Reminder

Welcome to this months Calling All Sistahs reminder to do your monthly self-breast examination and to book your mammogram if it is due. Please be sure to visit the blog and see what the other Sistahs have made this month.
My card for you this month is Love themed since it was just Valentines Day. This background of this card was inspired by a video I watched from Jennifer McGuire, she calls this technique Ink & Stamp Layered Backgrounds.

For my background I First stamped Full on Floral Background with white pigment ink, thenlet it dry really well. Once it was dry I sponged on It's a Girl and Party Dress from Catherine Pooler Designs. Then I stamped the larger of the two stamps fromTin Roof with white pigment ink and let it dry. The final layer was stamped with Party Dress Ink using the Full on Floral stamp.  Once the card was good and dry I used a stitched Heart die to cut out my heart and added a white heat embossed sentiment by combining sentiment from both the Calling All Sistahs and Hope Ribbon stamp sets from the Calling All Sistah's Collection from Casual Fridays Stamps. (50% of the profits from the sale of items in this collectio are donated to breast cancer research and and awareness programs).  To assemble my card I mounted the backgrouns layer to a white top folding card base, added the Heart poped up on foam tape, and then to add some bling I cut strips of silver shimmer paper to the bottom and right and added a small heart cut from the same paper popped up on foam tape.

Calling All Sistahs - January 2018

Happy New Year!!  Here is your first reminder post for 2018. Lets make this the year to take care of yourself!!  Remember early detection is your best chance to win the battle against Cancer. Please take a little time for yourself and do your self-breast examination and book this years mammogram.


This month's reminder has a little sass added to it. Michelle, from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps has come out with a couple of new stamp sets with sentiment designed with a bit of sass.  I love this sentiment and I believe that often we do not know what to say to someone who is ill in anyway let alone facing a cancer diagnosis. These sentiment are perfect for just these times.


This card uses the new Supercalifragilistic stamp set, from CAS-ual Friday stamps. These sentiment are fabulous!!  
Check out all of the other amazing reminder cards at the Calling All Sistahs blog.

Calling All Sistahs

It is a very busy time of the year, but do not forget about yourself. Here is this months reminder to do your monthly self breast examination and schedule any due mammograms.  It is easy to forget about ourselves this time of year, but take 5 minutes for yourself and do your check.  Here is my card for you this month.


I used the Full on Floral background stamp which I heat embossed with Wow Superfine Opaque Bright White embossing powder. I love this embossing powder!!  Next, I sponged on Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide ink then buffed of the embossing with a paper towel to remove any ink. The Ruffled Ribbon was die cut out of some silver glitter paper and a thin strip of the same paper was added along side if the panel. The sentiment from the Calling all Sistahs stamp set was heat embossed on black and popped up on foam tape. The pink panel was adhered to a strip of black cardstock and attached to a white A2 top fold card base. A few sequins from the Sistahood Sparkle sequin mix to finish it off.

I hope you all Have a very Merry Christmas!!
