Breast Cancer Awareness-Guneaux Designs Sliced Rock Technique

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I decided to create a card that features Guneaux Designs Sliced Rock Technique.  I think the card is quite cheerful, which is what a breast cancer patient would need in the way of a card.  When I was recovering from breast cancer, I thoroughly enjoyed receiving cheerful cards.  They lifted my spirits.


Using my Guneaux Designs Sliced Rock Technique, I started making the card by stamping a floral image on a small piece of Stampin’ Up! Whisper White card stock. The floral image is from the Stampin’ Up! Flower Shop stamp set.  Using various shades of pink, I colored the flower and began implementing the Guneaux Designs Sliced Rock Technique.  You can see that I started creating the “rings” around the flower with two shades of pink and ended with shades of yellow and green.


I stopped with the technique when I reached five rings around the flower.  I did this so I would have room for my heart design around the sliced rock floral design and to be able to stamp the Ribbon of Hope stamp around the flower.  I used Versamark Ink and White Embossing Powder for the ribbon.

To form the heart around the floral design, I placed a heart-shaped Post-It note over the flower.  Afterwards, I used a brayer to apply Pink Pirouette Classic Ink across the Whisper White card stock. Then I formed the shape of the heart with Ranger Yellow Stickles.  I think the yellow stickle helps the floral design to pop on the card.

For the sentiment on the Breast Cancer Awareness card, I used the HOPE stamp from the retired Stampin’ Up! Strength & Hope stamp set.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month Card – Blue Chateau DSP

Because October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I made this card that you may CASE as it would meet a need for a card to give to someone who currently is struggling with breast cancer.

Have you tried the Stampin’ Up! Beau Chateau Designer Series Paper (DSP) yet? If you have, you’ll agree with me that the designs are so pretty, especially the Soft Suede and Pink Pirouette design that I used on this card. The design in person looks like a shimmery gold.

The card was made from a 11″ x 6-1/4″ piece of Pink Pirouette Cardstock, and the fold of the card is called “Gatefold”. After folding the card, I cut the Beau Chateau Designer Series Paper into sections to match the card panels and attached them with Sticky Strip. For decorations, I used the butterfly stamp from the Creative Elements Stamp Set (love, love this stamp set) to stamp twice the butterfly image onto a piece of the DSP. Then I cut out the butterflies, decorated them with Basic Pearls, and adhered them to a frame made with the Designer Frames Embossing Folder. To create the scallop border on the two front pieces, I used the Scallop Edge Border Punch. The card inside includes images from the Thoughts and Prayers Stamp Set.
