I consider myself an equal opportunity stamper…while Close To My Heart is my first love, you will often see me creating with other brands as well. When I came across the Ribbon of Courage stamp set by Stampin Up….I knew it was a must have. Sadly, breast cancer is predominate in my family. I was inspired by the sketch challenge this week at The Paper Players to create this card for a family member.
I was inspired by the Design Team to create some tone on tone stamping in the background. I stamped my sentiments and then sponged on the same color ink with a stencil for added texture. My shimmer trim tape started out as white, and I sponged on pink ink to it as well. My complete card is created with Pixie ink…but my camera certainly does not appreciate the pink on my shimmer trim. I promise it all coordinates in person!
