CAS-ual Fridays January Sistah's Blog Hop

Hi and thanks for stopping by!!   I'm calling out to all Sistahs! On the 17th of the month CAS-ual Fridays Stamps sponsors a blog hop to remind you and the important women in your life to make sure you're doing your monthly breast self-exam and scheduling a yearly mammogram. You can make a difference and you might just save a life!
1 in 8 women in the U.S. will develop invasive breast cancer in her lifetime. Early detection is so important for treatment! We want all the women in our lives to know how important they are to us and how much we want them to live strong healthy lives.

CAS-ual Fridays Stamps owner Michele is a survivor. She designed a line of stamps to provide support and to promote awareness. 50% of the sale of products in the "Calling All Sistahs" campaign are donated to breast cancer research and awareness.

If you're hopping along you should have reached me from 
Theresa Knopf's blog.

You can get all the blog hop details and begin here - at the CAS-ual Fridays Blog!

I started with a watercolor panel made with Ranger Distress Ink in Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry, Barn Door, and Spun Sugar.   Next I splattered it with white ink and set it to the side to dry. 

I stamped the sentiment from WORD RIBBON on a FUNKY SQUARE TAG.  I love that the tag is layered so I can put a gold glittery matt behind the sentiment. 
Did you hear the good news? Pretty Pink Posh has created a Sistah's sequin mix just for CAS-ual Fridays!! This mix is available exclusively at the CFS store, to help us support Breast Cancer Awareness. Michele will be donating 50% of the profits, just as she does with the other items in the Calling All Sistahs collection, to NBCF.org Quantities are limited and once they are gone, they're gone! Better get them FAST! I didn't get mine in time for the hop.. so I made a mix of my own for this card.

I cut the watercolor panel with a Lovely Links Fri Die - the one with the hearts for Valentines day.. next I put some clear acetate on the back side, and inserted a white die cut Lovely Links die cut on the front side.  I created an channel with foam tape on the back, adhered the panel to my card base and filled the channel with pretty sequins.  Shake Shake Shake!  No one has nicer sequins than Pretty Pink Posh

I reserved some of the hearts from the LOVELY LINKS Fri Die and used them as accents around the sentient and over the HEART BOARD die cut accents.
Ready for the next stop? It's our Sistahs Design Team Coordinator Heather North!  Heather does all the "behind the scenes" to make these hops possible - and she's one of the nicest people you'll ever meet!

Here's the complete blog hop list with all the designers that have projects to share today.. but BEFORE YOU GO.. Make sure you leave a comment.   Two lucky commenters selected at random from the stops on the hop today will receive gift certificates to the store!  Maybe that lucky someone will be you!

CAS-ual Fridays - My Heart Beats For You

Hi and thanks for stopping by!  I hope you're having a great day!  I'm having fun making Valentine's Day cards with the CAS-ual Fridays Love Notes Stamp set! 
I stamped a background with the border/music bar in hot pink and red.  I stamped individual notes in light pink to fill the empty spaces.  I thought it would be fun to stamp the sentiment at an angle along the last bar at the bottom of the card.
For some sparkly accents I added some musical Fri Dies (Double Note, Heart Note, Treble Clef), and a few Fun Fetti Hearts in lieu of sequins. 
These musical hearts were one of the first sets that attracted me to CAS-ual Fridays and I think they're still gorgeous today!

Pretty Little Studio - You Are The Best!

It's a cold blustery day here in the Chicago area! How about a little pick me up? Wouldn't this be a nice little surprise? Your favorite drink and a pretty flower? I love the watercolor look of the Pretty Little Studio Here Comes The Sun collection. The Flowered paper is from the Up in the Air paper pack, and the tiny hearts print paper is from the Summer Party paper pack.
I layered the cup and flower die cuts from the Coffee Time die cut package on a Coffee Break 3x4 Journaling Card. The pretty pink ribbon on the journaling card seemed like the perfect background! I love working with the die cuts since they're printed, cut and ready to work with all I need to do is arrange them. I thought the flower needed a leaf; I found the perfect one in the Cactus die cut package.

For my sentiment "You are the BEST" I stuck a Think Positive sticker on a Label from Label Medley. The labels come in lots of different colors so you're sure to find the right one, and the stickers coordinate perfectly. The label pack even has some printed and die cut stars to use as embellishments. The hardest part is deciding on what words to use to make your sentiment.

The finishing touches are always the eye candy! That yummy flair is from the Rain assortment. And the sequins are Golden and 4 mm Crystal. There's a nice assortment of sequins to choose from in the store.. different colors, shapes (flat and faceted), as well as transparent and opaque.
Keep warm and have a great day!
