Stampin' Up! Love and Hugs from Ribbon of Courage

I just read that one of my Facebook friends is dealing with some big health issues.  While I could have easily given her some words of support and encouragement on her Facebook post, I decided to be more personal and send her a card.  It was a good excuse to use some of my new Stampin' Up! goodies as well!  I make cards all the time, but often those cards just get used to display at my events, but I'm trying to get better about actually SENDING cards.  That is my new goal.  This week I have sent 5 cards so far, and hopefully I can continue to make and send cards.  I think I'd better get some more postage stamps :)

This card uses the new Ribbon of Courage stamp set.  A couple of the main images in the set are some ribbons that could be used for all sorts of awareness.  While I think those images are nice, I fell in love with the additional stamps in the set like the hearts and flowers.  Another thing that I fell in love with were the coordinating framelits.  Have you seen the fun flower in the Support Ribbon Framelits Dies?  It's gorgeous.  I'll be using it soon and will post whatever I create.  I created my stamped panel with one of my new favorite color combinations: Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist, and Bermuda Bay.  Aren't these colors so fun together?  The first two colors are new 2017-2019 In Colors.  They are great colors to add to your collection.  You can order them by going to my Website and clicking SHOP NOW.

I stamped the greeting (also from the Ribbon of Courage set) on an oval that I die cut from the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  I just love the font used and especially love the greeting itself.  It can work for so many uses: sympathy, support, love, friendship, wedding, thinking of you, etc.  The hearts were both die cut from the Support Ribbon Framelits.  I added a bit of the new Bermuda Bay Mini Chevron ribbon to tie it all together.  Hope you enjoy!
