AWARENESS BLOG HOP AND BELLI CHALLENGE!

Hello! Welcome to the AWARENESS for Creative Cuts and More! You are in for a GREAT treat! Our Designers are very excited to share some fabulous CANCER AWARENESS projects using the wonderful Die Cuts from Creative Cuts and More.

Did you enjoy Steph's FANTASTIC  Ensemble? If you have not come here from Steph's Zerbe Design Blog, you will not want to miss what the Design team has in store for you. Head back to the Die Cut Diva Blog. That is where all of the action starts!

Don't forget on the NEW website have over 100 NEW Die Cuts AND a NEW section called GREAT DEALS!


Once you are finished HOPPING along the Blog Hop, you will have an opportunity to win one of the WONDERFUL  assortment of awareness ribbon products, including an awareness ribbon album, awareness cards and maybe a box or two.  You can find the ways to win this wonderful prize on the Die Cut Diva Blog!

Your chance to enter to win will have a deadline of Sunday, September 19th at midnight! We will announce the winner on Monday, September 20th.

CC&M will donate 20% of all sales of Awareness Ribbon products in September and October!!

One more thing - check this out! Terry has all of the Cancer colors listed here, so if you know of someone with a different type of cancer you can use that color! Before this, I honestly didn't know that the different cancers had "colors" besides PINK for Breast Cancer!

We will donate half of the proceeds to American Cancer Society and the other half to Susan G Koman Breast Cancer Foundation.

Now... Are you ready to see my variety of projects? I hope you like them! I had soooo much fun creating them! In addition to the Blog Hop, I participated in the Belli ChallengeThis week’s Belli Challenge is to use something that starts with the letter B – so technically  ALL of these qualify! Right? For Breast Cancer? ;) If we want to be technical though, some things you can use that start with B are buttons, bows, brads, blue, Black, emBossing…. Ok the embossing might be stretching a bit but you get the gist, right? *smile*

Once you are finished hopping along the Blog Hop, I would LOVE it if you came back and checked out all of the Belli Challenge Participants! They are all so talented and would LOVE to hear your comments!!!

Here are the details on my projects...


Awareness Ribbon Window A7 Card - Vertical - for this project, I cut a rectangle out of white and black card stock to create the layers. I put a white sheet of card stock on the inside of the card, sponged with black along the ribbon edges and then using my white gel pen, I added faux stitching around the edges to match the ribbon I used. The stamped words are from Stampin' Up!, Offray Black stitched Ribbon, triple flower punch from SU, Black Dew Drops and mini Glue dots were used as well.



Awareness Ribbon Window Square Box #01 - For this project, I grabbed my retired Stampin' Up! Rub Ons and added them by simply... (you guessed it!) rubbing. *smile* I then grabbed my roll of packing tape and added a strip BEHIND the window. Carefully sprinkling glitter over the sticky side - I made a small glitter window. I then added the Gems with mini glue dots.





I filled the box with small 4" x 4" note cards. Many times when I need card stock, I will e-mail Terry from Creative Cuts and More and let her know how many sheets I need. This way, I am sure to have coordinating card stock!




All cards use the Stella Bugaboo Digital Images. I added the words with my Photoshop program. I used white card stock, passionate pink Smooth card stock from Creative Cuts and More. I used Copics to color the image and Mini Glue Dots to hold the buttons on. Easy Peasy! 

Ohhh I almost forgot! To hold this wonderful box together... I used the KILLER RED TACKY TAPE


 






My last card uses the same images as above, however although it doesn't have a "ribbon" for Awareness, I couldn't resist using the Oval Window A7 Card - Horizontal card. I added some Glitter Card Stock that I had on hand and cut out a window to add a little pizzazz. 
Using the Mini Glue Dots again, I added the button embellishments and the white Satin ribbon as well.



Now that you are done checking out my blog, you will want to head over to Kim's Blog, to see what she has in store for you! She always inspires me with your crafty scrap booking and paper crafting ideas!


Thank you for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
