Stampin’ Up! Ribbon of Courage Sneak Peek

I’m sharing a sneak peek of the new Ribbon of Courage stamp set from Stampin’ Up! with you today.  Ribbon of Courage was designed by Patty Bennett, a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, and will be available for you to order on June 1st.  There is also a set of framelits to go with this set called, Support Ribbon Framelits Dies, also available on June 1st.  Everyone on my team received this set at OnStage in Savannah last weekend.

Global Design Project Sketch 082

I have a friend who will be undergoing more surgery soon for breast cancer, and I wanted her to know I was thinking of her.  She actually introduced me to Stampin’ Up! several years ago!  

First, I stamped the sentiment from Ribbon of Courage in Versa Mark ink on a panel of Blushing Bride card stock, added White Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to line it up in the bottom corner. Next, I adhered the sentiment panel and a strip of Blushing Bride polka dot DSP to a panel of Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper. Then, I adhered the thin strip of Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper where the two panels met.  I stamped the Ribbon of Courage patterned stamp in Versa Mark ink onto a panel of Blushing Bride, sprinkled it with White Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.

The Ribbon of Courage was then fussy cut out with my Paper Snips (the framelits were not part of our pre-order). Next, I cut out a Whisper White Stitched Shapes Oval and a little larger scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies in Blushing Bride.  I stamped the Whisper White oval twice with the brush stroke stamp from Sunshine Sayings in Blushing Bride, then adhered the two ovals together.

The ribbon and ovals were popped onto the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and some Blushing Bride Sequins and White Perfect Accents added for interest.
