Caregiver Hugs | Whimsy Stamps June Mini Release – Three New Cancer Stamp Sets

June 20, 2019

Hello everyone! I’m here today to share a mini release from Whimsy Stamps that features three new Cancer Stamp Sets. Most of us have unfortunately been affected by cancer at some point in our lives. Whether by knowing or loving someone with this dreaded disease or having to deal with it ourselves.

These clear stamp sets are called Cancer Sucks, Caregiver Hugs, and Cause Awareness. Cancer is mentally, physically, and emotionally draining for all involved and sometimes a card can help bring a smile to someone’s face or provide a much needed word of encouragement. Even though a card doesn’t change the circumstances, sometimes it can at least brighten someone’s day to know that you’re thinking about them.

I created a simple card today featuring the two sweet little bears from the Caregiver Hugs Set. I first stamped my images with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock, colored them with Copics, and then cut them out.

For my background, I lightly blended some Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Ink for the sky and some Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Ink for the grass. I then stamped my sentiment with Black Ink onto the bottom portion of the card, using my MISTI Stamping Tool.

Lastly, I added my images with some 3D Foam Adhesive Squares for added dimension.

Several others from the team are also sharing some great cards using these sets. Be sure to check them out in the links below!

    Rachel, this is such a loving and supportive post for such difficult circumstances. I know it is heartfelt for you too. It’s a beautiful, beautiful card.

      Thank you so much, Deb! I keep wishing that I had these sets (especially the boxing gloves) while my Grandma was still with us. She would have really liked them and gotten a kick out of some of the sentiments. <3 You did such a beautiful job.

    Hello, I'm Rachel! Thanks so much for dropping by and welcome to my blog! I love creating and am excited to share with you my love for card making and paper crafting.

    • Hello friends! ๐Ÿค— I hope your weekend is off to a great start!  Do you like to create 3D cards?  Personally, they take me slightly longer to put together than a single layer card, but they are well worth the extra time! (At least, thatโ€™s how I see it ๐Ÿ˜‚). I made this fun card for my sonโ€™s 5th birthday since heโ€™s a huge space fan. ๐Ÿš€I used the adorable Over the Moon #clearstamps Set from @sweetnsassystamps (illustrated by @jennifer_nilsson_art)to create my scene.  I love these images so much! To create my #popupcard, I was inspired by a fun new #diecutting set from @stampsoflife.

    • Happy Friday, crafty friends! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป I have been enjoying our summer break but I am totally ready for the weekend. ๐Ÿ˜… I thought that Iโ€™d have SO much free time with the kids being off of school but maybe you just never have free time when you have young kids. ๐Ÿ˜‚ I have a fun little #shakercard on my blog today featuring the Just Bee-cause #clearstamps Set combined with the new FrillyFrames Hexagon #backgrounddie. I just love this hexagon die. Cut it on acetate and you can convert it to a stencil as well!

    • Hello, friends!  Iโ€™m sharing a slightly different type of post today. Did you know that yesterday marked the 50th Anniversary since Apollo 11 launched for its moon landing from the @nasa Kennedy Space Center? ๐Ÿš€๐ŸŒ™ I thought that these images from the Over the Moon #stampset from @sweetnsassystamps would be perfect to celebrate the occasion!  I donโ€™t usually share a lot of personal photos on this account but Iโ€™ve included some where I had the amazing opportunity to be an astronaut for a day while interning for NASA. (Of course, my eyes were closed on one of the most awesome photos that Iโ€™ve ever had taken ๐Ÿ˜‚). #sweetnsassystamps #apollo11anniversary #apollo50 #clearstamps #nasa #overthemoon #copiccoloring #copiccolouring #diecuts #stamping
