hello lovelies!

SPARKLE N' SPRINKLE and DIE-VERSIONS are partnering up for a very special joint blog hop, called the AWARENESS CAMPAIGN. a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the newly released DIE-VERSIONS dies and the stamp sets revealed in the joint blog hop will go to help with cancer research. Almost every one has been touched by cancer is one way or another. either you or a family member has had cancer or you know someone who has had cancer. 

the DESIGNERS from both teams are joining together to help the fight to eradicate all cancers by inspiring you. 

not only are we debuting NINE new DIE-VERSIONS low profile dies (JULY 2015 Reveal - scroll down to the end of the reveal), SPARKLE N' SPRINKLE is also revealing THREE stamp sets for this AWARENESS CAMPAIGN. 

 the SNS sets are: 
SURVIVOR 713 (digi version DIGI713T
AWARENESS 714 (digi version DIGI714T

a GRAND PRIZE winner will be chosen from comments left on the DESIGNERS' blogs and will be announced on august 4th. you won't know who the MYSTERY DESIGNER is until after the joint blog hop, so remember to leave a comment with each of the designers. 

the WINNER will be announced on the DIE-VERSIONS facebook page, the SPARKLE N SPRINKLE facebook page, the DIE-VERSIONS blog, and on the SNS blog and will receive a $25 gift certificate from BOTH DIE-VERSIONS and SPARKLE N' SPRINKLE

and here is what i prepared for this AWARENESS CAMPAIGN -

to create this cars i used dark pink and white cardstock, different embossing powders, a stamp and a die.

the card base is 10 x 15 cm. i cut out 9 x 14 cm rectangle from white cardstock and heat embossed the background using SNS AWARENESS 714 stamp set and SNS Petal Pink Embossing Powder [EP220]. i repeated the word awareness and the ribbon image as many times as necessary to complete the background. after the embossing powder had cooled down, i distressed the edges using TIM HOLTZ mini distress ink pad.

for the bra i used DIE-VERSIONS whispers SURVIVOR BRA die and white cardstock. to colour the die cut i used SNS Petal Pink Embossing Powder [EP220] and SNS Antiquities Embossing Powder [EP266].

   if you followed the right path, you should have come from ERET's blog. your next stop is DIANE's blog. if you get lost along the way, you can always head back to the DIE-VERSIONS blog or the SNS blog.

here is the list with all the participants:
Emmy --> YOU are here

Love all the texture on your card. I had a good friend die last week from cancer and another good friend was just diagnosed so these designs really speak to me.

Love the background use of the embossing to make it stand out, and really like the way you used the gold in the hanger for the bra and as part of the color in the bra making it cohesive.
