Hi Blogland. Today's post is my first project for the Cuttlebug Blogspot Design Team. You may be aware that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month? At some point in our lives I'm sure that we have all been touched by someone who has had to deal with the dreaded "C" word? This Month, and all year through, we celebrate you all!!!
Pop on over to the Cuttlebug Blogspot to see what all the other DT (Design Team) members have been up to, or check out their individual blogs located down the right hand side of your screen.So, here is the project I came up with. I wanted to portray a sense of freedom, lightness or even fun.I cut out some Bra shapes from the Forever Young Cricut cartridge. I didn't need the Bikini bottoms which which would also be cut out with this image, so using the contours button on my Gypsy Machine I hid the elements that I did not need to cut out, saving time and more importantly PAPER!!!!Each image was embossed through the Cuttlebug Machine using a great NEW Embossing Foldercalled Flutterby.I then cut out some Ribbon shapes from the Pink Journey Cricut Cartridge and embossed them with the Tim Holtz Cracked Embossing Folder.BLOG CANDY ALERT!!!!! As today we are "thinking pink" I have decided to give away some "pink blog candy", by way of a Pink Journey Cricut Cartridge. Check out the Blog Candy sidebar to see how you can win.
I put all of my cut and embossed images to one side and got on with my base card.This cloud card from Kanban has always been a firm fave of mine and was perfect for this project.
I punched 2 holes in the card, added an eyelet to each hole for strength and threaded some cord through the holes to form a washing line.From a separate piece of card I cut out some shapes from the New Nestabilities Labels Fourteen. To me, when the dies are on their side the look like clouds, which fitted in with my project perfectly.Once cut, I embossed the images using the Polka Dots Embossing Folder.I cut a few inspirational words from the Pink Journey Cartridge ( Believe, Courage & Survivor)and applied them to my cloud images.Adding some foam pads to the backs and applying them to the project.Before adding the embossed Bras,and finally the all important Pink Ribbons...The card has already gone to a good home and a deserved recipient, who herself has been through her own personal battle..
Have a great day everyone, and thanks for checking us out. Oh, and don't forget your Blog Candy...
See you soon
