Calling All Sistahs – Sept. 2017

Calling All Sistahs Banner

It’s the 17th of the month which means it time for the Calling All Sistahs reminder to perform your monthly breast self-exam. 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime and early detection is so vital in beating it. So, please be sure to perform your exam and, if it’s time, schedule your mammogram. As always, this monthly reminder is brought to you by CAS-ual Fridays Stamp.

For this card, I started by creating a 4-bar (3.5 x 5″) notecard from white card stock. Using a MISTI stamping tool, I repeatedly stamped the smallest flower image from the Pretty Posies stamp set from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps using It’s a Girl ink from Catherine Pooler Designs along the bottom edge of the card front. I then used my scoring board to add a scored line detail above and below the stamped flowers.

For the sentiment, I chose the “I’m think of you” stamp from the same Pretty Posies stamp set. I stamped it just above the top score line using Black Jack ink from Catherine Pooler Designs. I also used the MISTI for this step to ensure I stamped it straight. For a bit of shimmer, I added some clear Sparkle Pen from Spectrum Noir over the centers of each flower and that completed the card.

We’ll be kicking off a new Calling All Sistahs encouragement challenge tomorrow. Be sure to stop by to see the card I created for this month’s challenge then play along with us! If you haven’t already seen it, you can see the winner of our August challenge by clicking here.
