Die Cutting Distress Inks Distress Products Ellen Hutson Heat Embossing

BCRF Surprise Blog Hop

Welcome to the BCRF (Breast Cancer Research Foundation) surprise blog hop! Let’s hop for hope!  A lot of fellow crafters have come together for this blog hop and created projects using the exclusive Courage stamp set and coordinating die set to spread awareness and remind every just how important the BCRF is and let everyone know there IS HOPE!
I kept my card very simple and created the background by apply a die cut mask of the ribbon die to some cardstock, sponged on some Picked Raspberry distress ink and misted on lots of water….. Oh how I love how that speckled background turned out…. I placed the ribbon die cut temporarily on the inked panel slightly offset, stamped the sentiment and then adhered the die cut ribbon foam dimension (lining up the letters was easy).`

    Hi Laurel ~ I always love your CAS style but I have to admit that this one really hits home. I lost my childhood best friend a few years ago to breast cancer. Now my 32 year old daughter is backing up her BFF as she battles this horrid disease. The fact that the kind-hearted folks at Ellen Hutson continue to support this all-important fight thrills me beyond measure. Thanks so much for being a part of it. ~BIG HUGS~
