New Releases Now at My Favorite Things!

All the new sets at My Favorite Things are officially for sale!!!

As most of you know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. As women, I’m sure that all of us have been touched by breast cancer in one way or another, personally, either a family member or a friend. Even though great strides have been made in fighting this disease, more advances are needed. I am very honored to be a part of this “Think Pink” Minis on a Mission by My Favorite Things . For every set of Think Pink that is purchased, 50% of the retail proceeds (and 25% of wholesale proceeds) will be going directly to Susan G. Komen for the Cure and breast cancer initiatives.

Please visit their website and look around!

I used the sketch from this week’s JBWW challenge for my card.

The main background was made by swiping ink directly on to white CS. The panel behind the girls Was made by stamping the open flower from new Boho Blossoms set randomly first in pink and then in Basic Grey. The bottom panel was stamped the same way in just pink.

The stamps I used for this card are a Sneak Peek of the Boho Blossoms set from My Favorite Things which will be released on October 1st along with 4 other sets!

The main flower image was stamped in Bayou Blue on Bashful Blue CS. I used a Q-Tip to add a little smudging to the flower petals. All the backgrounds were stamped using the same flower stamp.

I used a very simple layout on this card. I stamped and colored (with Copic markers) the girls on Georgia Pacific CS. I stamp the awning and cut it out and layered it over the panel with the girls with foam tape for a little added depth. I then placed those pieces on more white CS to make the image pop on the pretty (but busy) background panel.
