Calling All Sistahs Blog Hop

Today is the 17th of the month and time for the Calling All Sistahs blog hop.  This hop happens every month as serves as a reminder to do your monthly self breast examinations.

Michelle Saugstad Gross, the owner of CAS-ual Fridays, found a lump back in 2015 during her monthly exam. You can read more of her story here. She created a line of stamps called the Calling All Sistahs Collection and she donates 50% of the profit from these stamps and dies to breast cancer research and awareness programs.

A new product will be added to the collection this month, it is a beautiful sequin mix made by Pretty Pink Posh.  Each Blogger will be using these sequins on their cards this month.

 Here is my card for this month.


Thank you for coming on the hop!!
Here is a list of all the stops on this blog hop. Please comment along the way.
Two people who leave comments will receive a $15.00 gift certificate to the Cas-ual Fridays shop.

New Inks from Catherine Pooler

In the fall Catherine Pooler Designs released their foundations box. In this box were 5 ink pads that Catherine had specially formulated and they give excellent coverage on all types of stamps and the colors to not transfer color to the others once the stamp is cleaned. These ink pads are foam not linen and so only a little tap, tap, tap on the ink pad is needed to ink up your stamp.  On Tuesday January 10th Catherine will release the rest of the ink colors to the Party Collection. I am a bit excited and maybe a tad OCD so I have made room and labels for the rest of the collection.


I took this picture before the announcement of Something Borrowed. All of the inks have fun Party themed names. There is one more color to be released tomorrow.  P.S. check out Catherine's facebook page for all the color reveals and to take a guess at the latest hint for the color reveal. You could win $5.00 to Catherine's shop.

I will be back on the 17th for the Calling All Sistah's Blog Hop!!

Candy Cane Lane Stamp Of Approval Collection

I received my SOA Box just a few days ago and I LOVE it!! Today I want to share a few cards I have made since getting my collection.

First..
I cased a card by Lisa Harrole, I loved her card so much I had to remake it. For the background I used the Peppermint Stick Background stamp. I cut out the large labels from the Merry Labels die set and stamped the sentiment from the Merry and Bright stamp set and also the branches and ornaments from the same set. I added some ribbon to the centre and adhered the label with foam tape to give it some dimension.

My second card...
uses the stag from the Hip Holidays stamp set, which I think is super cute with the added patterns to his chest and ears. There is even a little stamp for his eyes and nose!!  Again I used the large label and the die from the Merry Labels die set and the Christmas is from the Merry and Bright stamp set. I added the red fishtail banner for a pop of color.

The Third card...
I used the "Crooky Tree" and Merry Christmas sentiment stamps from the Hip Holiday stamp set. I love this tree and all of the patterns and solid pieces/layers in this set. I added and embellishment made with the Funky Flake dies from last years Holiday Magic SOA Collection.

Finally for today my fourth card...

I used my MISTI with a template by Maureen Wong, to repeat stamp the branch and then berries from Merry and Bright stamp set. I used the small label die from Merry Labels die set and stamped and embossed the Noel from Hip Holiday. The red frames were left over from a previous card.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you come back soon as I have another stamp set from this collection I have not gotten inky yet :)

Reminder

Hi everyone it is that time of the month again.  Time to do your monthly self breast examination and if it is time book your mammogram.
This month's blog hop has a theme "Remind a Sistah".  As you already may know we hop on the 17th of each month, the anniversary of the day Michelle Saugstad Gross, owner of CAS-ual Fridays discovered her lump.  This goal of this Blog Hop to promote the importance of early detection and to remind our sistahs to do their self breast exams. 
It's important to Michelle to be able to give back and pay it forward, so she donates 50% of the profits from her special Calling All Sistahs Collection to Nationalbreastcancer.org.
My card this month is simple and straight to the point. 

We have over 20 bloggers this month. Please visit each one and leave a comment by August 19th, for your chance to win 1 of 3 $15 gift certificates to the Casual Fridays store.

Below is a list of all the stops on the hop.
