Hello, my Crafty friends!

Today's card is kind of a Public Service Announcement as well as a punny not so funny card if you know what I mean. 

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month as well as the obvious Halloween Month. So I thought it would be fun to mash the two. 

As you may or may not know I don't just make cards, I also am an Oncology Nurse in my day or evening job (depending on what shift I'm working). Did you know breast cancer is the most commonly occurring cancer in women and is the second most common cancer overall! Also, it is rare but it can also happen in men. It's true I have had male breast cancer patients. So please, do your diligence and get your tata's checked, and while you are at it check everything else. I like to think of October as a reminder to look at when I have to book my next Mammogram and check-up. 

Ok enough serious talk, let's look at this slimline Boobee card! Get it, Boo Bees... LOL! I crack myself up sometimes and laugh at my one jokes 😂 life is too serious!!!

I began by adding white ink blending to the black slimline panel by using the top layer of the Scattered Leaves Stencils. Don't they kinda look like ghosts shapes? For a pop of color and some sparkle, I splattered some gold onto the background panel.

I then die-cut all the elements I needed to put it all together. The Ghosts, the Boo Buzz word, and the letters. See all the supplies linked below.

Finally, I stamped out the bees onto vellum, to give them a ghostly look and then stamped out the sentiments that were then heat embossed in gold.

I hope no one takes offense to my card today. I love punny cards and hope you do too.  If time permits I will share an IG reel over on my Instagram feed. Hope to see you there.

In the meantime, ladies check your ladies and all your other parts, gents you can do the same (your own parts I mean), and thank you for stopping by! Until next time... Happy Crafting!

Cards for Cancer Featuring Newton's Support Stamp Set


As you all know October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. So if you are due for a check or feel any unusual lumps please go get your Tata's checked :)

Recently Cancer has affected some of my friends and family. And, even though I deal with Cancer Patients everyday as an Oncology Nurse it is so different when you are on the other side. You cannot help but feel helpless :( 

Today I want to share with you a bunch of cards that I have made for some of those people in my life affected by the disease. My hope is to encourage them on their journey and remind them that they can get through there treatments as difficult as they might be. Sorry, this post is a bit picture heavy as I have never gotten so much use out of one Stamp set! 

So lets get started...



This kitty's colours reminds me of Garfield. The Pink ribbon is probably the most known as it represent Breast Cancer.

The stamps I used on all my cards come from Newton's Nook - Newton's Support Stamp Set.

I will have a list of all the supplies I used with links to where I purchased them below the post.


                                                                                         

This is my White Kitty.

  Each image was stamped onto some Canson water color paper using Versafine Onyx ink. I then used my Zig Clean Clear Brushes to colour the images in. They then were Cut out using my Silhouette Pixscan mat. 

For a tutorial on how I use my Pixscan mat click HERE.       

 
             
                   
I think this is my favourite kitty! Love the stripes I drew on him ;)

Here is another card done in grey and pink tones. I used Versamark  ink to stamp the background  ribbons. 

 They Grey Ribbon represents Brain Cancer. 






This yellow striped yellow kitten is pretty cute too!

The Heart Die I used on most of the cards comes from Gina Marie Designs.

The Embossing folder I used i s from  We R Memory Keepers - the Next Level Embossing Folders -Quilted

  

This one is my spotted Kitty! I think these cats are called Calico Cats. 

It's very difficult to see all the shine in this card. I rubbed the Versamark stamped images on the background with some perfect pearls and in the light all those little hearts are so reflective!

Light blue represents prostate Cancer.                                  

 The teal ribbon is for Ovarian Cancer. 
Right now I have a dear friend who is going through her treatments and I think she will love this card. She is one tough lady and I know she will beat this disease!



The inside of each card was finished with this little heart sentiment.   
Hopefully my cards will put a smile on the recipients face and encourage them on their journey!



For those of you wondering about all the colours for cancer ribbons I have included a guide below.
 I had no idea there were so many!
Hope my cards have inspired you to create some of your own cards for Cancer. Unfortunately the reality is that someday you will know someone going through this very difficult time. A card as little as it may seem will just let them know you are thinking about them ;)

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Crafting  :)
