What Cancer Cannot Do....

{jane bosi}  Good Day!  I have a frugal, if not stunning card share today!  In November, I was fortunate to meet up with the wonderful Technique Junkie Mastermind, Pat Huntoon, at a stampy show in lil ol Madison, Wisconsin.  At that show, there was a lot of stampy goodness going down with gelatos, stencils, stamps and more.  Pat demo'd her little tocus (LOL....not even sure I spelled that right!) off.  While cleaning up, I grabbed a bunch of the discarded pieces....they were all just so pretty and vibrant!

So.....I crafted this colorful card which features several renditions of the Gelatos Wipe technique.  This technique is featured on the Sensational Stencil CD.  If you haven't gotten your copy yet, now is the time!  This CD is jam packed with awesome tutorials!  You can read all about it here!

Not wanting to take anything away from the beautiful vibrant background, I stamped on vellum.  I chose to use the sentiment, What Cancer Cannot Do #SD607 from Technique Junkie Stamps.  I love the verbage of this sentiment:

It cannot cripple love,
It cannot shatter hope,
It cannot dissolve faith,
It cannot destroy peace,
It cannot kill friendship,
It cannot suppress memories,
It cannot silence courage,
It cannot invade the soul,
It cannot steal eternal life,
It cannot conquer the spirit.

Cannot!  I love this for the words and, mostly, for why it is ;)  #goteama

Beautiful - it's so fun to play with scraps......I have boxes of scraps that I'm going to start cutting up for cards, etc.
Thanks for sharing.
