Breast Cancer Awareness Creation with Custom Colored Rhinestones is what we have for you today.
First, I have a PSA…
Have you gotten your mammogram yet this year? SCHEDULE IT! GOOOOOO!!!!
Breast cancer runs on both sides of my family. Both of my paternal and maternal Grandmother’s had breast cancer. PLEASE go get it done. NOW! A little bit of discomfort is better than hours of radiation, chemo or worse.
OK, off of my soap box… now do you want to see a cool card and custom colored rhinestones? Let’s do this!
Supplies Needed for the Breast Cancer Awareness Creation with Custom Colored Rhinestones Project
Black Ink (preferably Memento as it works well with alcohol inks)
Paper to stamp your image on
Colored paper to punch out
This is the Breast Cancer Awareness Creation with Custom Colored Rhinestones Project. I really love the decorative paper!
*TIP* When using your 3-d pop dots, you have the outside of where the pop dots come out of. USE THEM ON YOUR PROJECTS! You don’t have to waste them. Sometimes they work better than the pop dots do because they have more coverage!
Peel off your image off of the stamp sheet. Place your stamp on the acrylic block and ink your stamp.
Sometimes when you stamp your image, it doesn’t come out exactly the way you want it to. That’s what happened to me here. I didn’t ink it properly the first time and the second, I leaned too much to the left so it didn’t do a very clear image. What do you do when that happens? Keep doing it until you are happy with your image.
After a few more times, I finally got the image I wanted. Typically I try to do at least one additional image so I can have it on hand. It sure has been helpful to have one ready to go on a moments notice!
When I was originally designing this project, I was going to use the clear rhinestones and have it look like it does above. I really thought it was a little too bright for what I wanted. What do you do when you need a custom color rhinestone?
YOU COLOR THEM YOURSELF! Take out your PK3 chameleon pen and your clear rhinestones.
Color the top of your rhinestones.
Here you can see the difference between the left side which has been colored and the right side which hasn’t. I love the slight color gives it such an elegant soft look.
Take out your stamped image. Color the inside of the ribbons.
This is what the image looks like once it is colored.
I had already colored another image so I had it pre-cut with my Brother Scan and Cut 2. It is so easy scan and cut my image! Set your image aside.
Take out your decorative paper and card base. Place adhesive on the back of your decorative paper.
Put your decorative paper on the front of your card base.
Take out your Paper to punch out your circle.
Punch out your circle.
Take out your 3-D adhesive. Apply it to the back of your stamped colored image.
Place your stamped image on your punched out circle.
Apply adhesive to either the card base decorative paper or the back of the circle. Adhere the circle with the stamped image to the card base.
Take out your custom colored rhinestones. Apply them to your card.
Trim any excess rhinestones off if necessary.
Your Breast Cancer Awareness Creation with Custom Colored Rhinestones project is complete!
