Calling all Sistahs Blog Hop

Monday, May 16, 2016

Hi friends -- today, I am thrilled to be participating in the monthly Calling All Sistahs blog hop sponsored by CAS-ual Friday Stamps. Click here to see the entire lineup of goodies from the Calling All Sistahs line. Did you know that Michele, the owner of CAS-ual Friday Stamps has been and will continue to donate 50% of the profits from the sales in this special line to the National Breast Cancer Foundation for research and medical help.

If you want to read more about how this campaign started, click here. This hop, which will happen on the 17th of each month is to promote monthly breast self-exams and yearly mammograms.

There will be 3 $15 gift certificates to Cas-ual Friday Stamps given to 3 people that comment along the hop. Comments will close on May 19th at 11:59 pm EST.


If you are following along in the hop, you should have arrived from Theresa's blog. If you just came to visit me and want to hop along, click here to start at the beginning of the hop. See below my card for the next stop on the hop.

For my card, I am using the Hope Ribbon stamp set and Ruffled Ribbon Fri-Die along with the Hope Fri-die. I started by die cutting the word hope several times and adhering it to my card base, making sure to go off the page in various spots. I then stamped the gorgeous hope ribbon and die cut it out. It's hard to tell in the photo but I added some clear Wink of Stella in the open heart areas for a bit of shimmer. My pink ribbon is popped up on foam tape for added dimension.


The next stop along the way is Jennifer at Just Jingle. 

Thanks so much friends for stopping by today. I appreciate your visits and hope everyone has a wonderful day.

I love your custom made embossed hope paper, Alanna! I'm going to have to give this a try. :)

Gorgeous card. I thought the 'hope' accent was an embossing folder. I just got a 'callback' on my mammo...a little nervous, but trusting God to get me through whatever news I receive. Your card came at the right time (and this hop also). Hugs!!

What a wonderful card to showcase a wonderful cause! I really like what you did with the die cut words. That looks amazing. And that ribbon image is gorgeous. I could see a bit of the Wink of Stella. Using it the way you did is a smart move. All in all a beautiful card for a fabulous cause. :) I love how green our grass is and I don't like to complain, but I would like to see a bit more sunshine now, please. :) I guess we gotta wait a bit, though.

Beautiful card.
Love how the ribbon is popped off the card.
Using the "glitter" in the hearts was a good idea.
