What rubber stamping supplies do I need to make this card?

The sentiment “fight like a girl” is so sporty sounding to me and it finally dawned on me that I had the perfect Amuse Studio stamp set – Team Player – to make a cool background!  It was really pretty easy to stamp even though there was a lot of white embossing.  I did it basically in 3 sections and that made it more manageable.

This week’s theme and monthly prize

Every year Amuse Studio has had a Stamp Out Breast Cancer promotion and this year is no different.  Keeping in that theme, this week’s Amusing Challenge is Think Pink/Breast Cancer Awareness.   I know that there are many cancers other than breast cancer that deserve our attention and this month I have been doubly hit by the loss of a friend just last Thursday to cancer and my cousin was diagnosed with a rare form of Leukemia.  My heart goes out to all cancer patients!

Throughout the month I have different sorts of challenges…”use it”, themes, sketch, etc.  There are weekly Top 3 winners and a random winner from all of the participants receives the monthly prize drawing.  October’s winner will receive this featured stamp set from Amuse Studio, Fight Like a Girl, from me for free.  If you don’t want to wait – you can order your free set for just $3 shipping/handling here.  {You will also find a free calendar and digi kit download there too!}

This Week’s Inspiration

I think this is such a clever and fun card from Juliet this week.  For our challenge this week she really did a LOT of coloring with pink – but I love how she colored the background and left the kitties white.  Juliet incorporated her love of doodling on this card and I think it goes well with the Nine Lives stamp set from Amuse Studio.

Cyndi was able to work with several pink tones and get them all to work well with each other on this classic Breast Cancer card.  She used ribbon from her stash (I have a ribbon stash too – how about you?!  Do you think you’ll be able to use it all?  Yikes…I know and admit that I have way too much!)  Cyndi used Amuse Studio’s special stamp set for the month of October – Fight Like a Girl and I love the beautiful butterfly from their retired Papillion stamp set.

*****

This card turned out exactly as I envisioned it – woot, woot!  That doesn’t always happen but I especially like how the “swoosh” of Blush Splash looks under the word HOPE.  I used I wide paint brush to get that effect and then watercolored the rest of the image with an aqua brush and assorted Splashes.  The sentiment is just one of the great Fight Like a Girl stamp  sayings in Amuse Studio’s Stamp Out Breast Cancer set.
