Link Up For Pink

Hi, all!
It's October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and a great time to pull out your PINK papers to show your support for the cause! :0)

Materials List
Memory Box Die - Leafy Branch
Impression Obsession Die - Twig Wreath
Stampin' Up DP (Some really old stuff!)
Stickles Glitter Glue
Fiskars Sentiment Stamp
Stampin' Up Oval Large Punch
Pearl Pen

I used my Pearl Pen for creating my "eggs". I simply started with a light pressure, lightly dragging the pen on the paper while continuing to squeeze just a bit more to create the larger end of the egg. After they were dry, I removed them carefully from the paper and glued them in my paper nest.
My nest was created using the Impression Obsession Twig Wreath die cut. I simply cut it, then wrapped it into a nest shape, gluing the ends to the bottom, and top, of itself to keep it from unfurling, similar to how you create rolled flowers, only not so tight. :0)


This post will remain at the top of my blog through October 14th to support LUFP. Please scroll down to view my other posts! If you like my work, the "Follow" button is over there =====>>
