hope you can cling to day 31

Hi friends.  So here I am with the cards for the last day of challenges for breast cancer awareness on SCS.  There were three new challenges given. 

Challenge thirty-four - I *heart* you.  A heart shaped card or a card that contains hearts. 

I really wanted to make a triple heart easel card, but after about three tries, I gave up and made a simple heart shaped card.  I'm pretty sure that I can make the easel card, but I didn't want to spend any more time on it today.  

I die cut the largest scallop heart (spellbinders) on the fold for the card base.  Then I cut another heart to put on the front, as well as a slightly smaller one from some basic grey designer paper.  

I stamped the butterfly (SU papillon potpourri) on white and pink with black ink and then punched them out with the matching punch.  The sentiment (hero arts) was punched out with a heart punch.   

Challenge thirty-five - group hug.  A card that is simple in nature, but reflects a message from or to a group of people, and allows the patient to send or receive a Group Hug.

I used poppy field (rubbernecker) and stamped with bermuda bay and jet black stazon on white card stock.  The sentiment is hero arts.  I added a layer of bermuda bay card stock and used a white card base.  

For a little added interest, I glued on some narrow strips of bermuda bay card stock and some 1/8" punched circles.  

Challenge thirty-six - I can't believe it's over.  A black and white card, with just a pop of one of the colors listed below - indicating your "team."   These are somehow based on the show Breaking Bad, but since I don't watch tv, I have only a very vague idea of what the show was about. 

1) Green (Team Walt)
2) Purple (Team Marie)
3) Brown (Team Hank)
4) Pink (Team Holly)
5) Blue - (Team Skyler)
6) Yellow - (Team Jesse)

Since blue is my favorite color, that is the one I chose. 

I stamped the bluebonnet from stately flowers I (gina k designs) in tuxedo black memento, and die cut it with labels collection (SU/sizzix).  I also stamped just a partial image to use for the spotlighting technique.  I punched out a circle from the partial image and colored it with copic markers.  The I added a slightly larger circle in black and glued the colored image where it belonged on the black and white image.  I used a black marker to edge the die cut piece and then added faux piercing all around the edge. 

The background is a penny black stamp called circles and lines, which I stamped in black and then layered with black onto the white card base.  

Thanks so much for joining me this month.

I cannot wait to see the triple heart easel card, once you figure it out! But, in the meantime, your heart card turned out lovely!

LOVE, LOVE the added thin lines with the dots on the teal card! Simple, but it adds such a punch!

And your spotlight technique was perfect!
