That’s the name of Gina K.‘s newest Stamps for a Cause Stamp set! Gina is such a kind, caring and giving person. Please check out her Stamps for a Cause page.

$7.00 of every stamp set will be divided equally between the American Diabetes Association and the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation, two organizations that are working on research to find better ways to treat diabetes and hopefully will some day find a cure.

This set is available in two styles. You can purchase either wood mounted or unmounted on cling cushion for use with acrylic blocks.

Here is my first card made with this set. It’s another sample for my weekend sketch.


The card base is a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Soft Sky cardstock folded in half.

The River Rock polka dotted designer paper is from the retired Apple Cider paper pack and measures 2 1/8″ x 4 1/4″.

Both long edges are paper pierced.

Underneath is a slighter bigger scalloped piece of Whisper White. Double Stitched Wild Wasabi Grosgrain ribbon was tied around the bottom.

The vertical strips are a 7/8″ wide piece of Wild Wasabi colored Apple Cider Designer paper and a 3/4″ wide piece of Whisper White.  I added three flowers with white brads centers over the strips. The flowers were punched out with the Three for you Punch.

The main image was stamped with Black Palette ink on Watercolor paper and colored in with Aqua Painter and classic inks (River Rock, Groovy Guava, Soft Sky and Wild Wasabi). I stamped the baby pouch on the polka dotted paper, cut it out and glued it to the main image.

I cut the image out and dry embossed the edge with my circle Nestabilities dies and added a black cardstock mat as well as a Groovy Guava scallop circle underneath.

After adding a double photo corner with black brads to the bottom right corner, I stamped my saying in Black Palette ink and was done.
