Three cards same stamp

 There are a number of photos in this post.
I got this stamp in mail yesterday so quickly made some cards before I left home 
for the night. Its Breast Cancer Awareness Month so I decided to get the
stamps from Casual Fridays and lucky for me they are very quick with their
deliveries even to Australia. I didnt think they would arrive in time but we still
have half a moth to go.

This first card I inked up the stamp with 4 different pinks to
get this look. I keep forgetting I have all these little 1" cubes of
Versa Ink and have had them for many many years and they still
work beautifully. They are a great ink for embossing as they stay 
wet for such a long time. In this instance I have clear embossed.
Look at the beautiful detail in the stamp. Love it.
I then picked out a couple of sentiments to put together.

I couldn't believe that with all three cards I stamped on
the sentiments and then managed to get black smudges
somewhere on each. This one I was able to save
by cutting from a one layer card to the rounded corners
rectangle stitched shape. I found of the three this one
warped the most from the heat embossing and nothing I did
would smooth it out. I added fun foam underneath but
still ended up ripply. Couple of faint smudges covered by
the pink enamel dots.

This next card ended up being long and narrow due to
smudges and more pink enamel dots for coverage.
This one was clear stamped then Neon Pink embossing
powder. Its from WOW and I cant tell you how long ago
I bought it and then never used it, bit too bright. But of
course this colour is back in so all those Neon embossing
powders need to come out and play. Again look at how
beautifully this has stamped and embossed.

Combination of words to make the sentiment 
'It's thats time of the year, get
'em squeezed' 

This final card nearly escaped smudging but then I discovered it
just on the edge so only a little trim down. You know I looked
everywhere to see where the smudges came from and I swear I couldn't
find anything but it happened.

This photo shows the embossing a bit better than the above one. 
This is a pale pink glitter powder, you can still see the
general idea of the stamp but not as well detailed.
It actually makes me think of that embossing powder thats
more dimensional.....frantage  but Its not its another of the
WOW but glitter embossing powder.

Each of these cards stamped and embossed beautifully because
I remembered to clean the card with my Emboss Buddy first and it
makes a huge difference. This time I just added
a few pale pink enamel dots and the sentiment 
'kick cancer's butt!'

Three very quick but pretty cards.


After adding I am not sure if Heat embossing is included. sorry if I
have miss-interpreted. Middle card.
