Crafty Secrets Support the GIRLS Challenge

As most of you know October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month but did you know that Crafty Secrets has a really fun stamp set called Support the Girls? Vicki Chrisman, our Design Team Leader, thought it would be really fun to give all of us ladies on the Crafty Secrets DT a challenge by using the Support the Girls stamp set to create a card/project of our choice. I also want let all of you know that Sandy Redburn, owner of Crafty Secrets, designed this stamp set to help raise funds for the Susan G. Komen foundation for breast cancer research and Crafty Secrets is donating $1.00 from every stamp set that is sold.

For my project I made a PINK ensemble which includes a candle, a little box of chocolates and a card.On the candle I made a band with white lace and a beautiful pink ribbon with embossed hearts from s e i. Using white CS I cut out a white Circle Nestability. I used the Copic ABS and sketch marker RV11 Pink to airbrush the center part of the nestability. Then I stamped the images from the Support the Girls stamp set using Ranger Pitch Black Adirondack Ink. After the ink was dry I colored in the dress and hat on the lady and the pink ribbon. I also cut out a Petite Scallop Circle Nestability from pink CS to use as a mat for the classic circle. I added a pink satin ribbon and some diamond stickles along with a pink rhinestone for a little sparkle and bling.For the little box of chocolates I started out with a small gold jewelry box. You can find these at your local $ store and also in the jewelry department. For the top I layered a Classic and Scallop Rectangle Mega-Nestabilities. On the white piece I used the Copic ASB and Copic marker RV11 Pink to airbrush along the edges and then I used a random word stamp from the Support the Girls stamp set and embossed it in gold. Then I stamped the image of the lady using Adirondack Pitch Black Ink and colored in using Copic markers. Then I cut out the lady and added some foam tape to the back for some dimension and then I added a little diamond stickles to her shoes. I also stamped the sentiment "I've got your back" onto a pink tag that I made using the Ribbons Tag Trio die from Spellbinders. I added some pink sheer and satin ribbon, diamond stickles and a few rhinestones to the top.Inside the box I have some Hershey's Nugget chocolates. I airbrushed on mailing lables and then stamped the sentiment. Then I colored in the diamond shaped on the letters and the ribbon.For the card I used pink and black CS and some of the DP from the Classic Paper Pad from Crafty Secrets. On the pink I ramdomly stamped a flourish from the Cherubs stamp set using Pitch Black Ink. Then I added some diamond stickles to the flourishes. I used a Martha punch to do the pretty black scallop. On the piece of DP I inked the edges with black ink. For the sentiment I used the two smallest rectangles from the Classic and Scallop Rectangle Mega-Nestabilities from Spellbinders. The mirror image is from the Girlfriends Images & Journal Notes booklets. I glued the mirror image to a piece of CS to give it a little thickness and then I cut it out. I inked the edges with black ink and then I added silver stickles, a couple of rhinestones and a pink ribbon. To give it some dimension I added foam tape to the back. Then I stamped the image of the bra from the Support the Girls stamp set three times using three different colors of CS. I cut them out and then inked the edges in black. I taped down two of them and added some foam tape to the middle one. Don't forget to check out what all of the ladies on the Crafty Secrets Design Team created using the Support the Girls Stamp Set!! I know they will have a ton of great inspiration for you!!
