Cancer, It Can't.....

 Happy Thursday!  I have a card to share that you will also see on the Technique Junkie Designer Blog!  There's lot of good art going on over there so, be sure to check it out!  It's a frugal project, if not vibrant and eye catching!  Inspiration is everywhere....and, so are supplies!  Yet another case for hoarding those crafty supplies!

In November, I was fortunate to meet up with the wonderful Technique Junkie mastermind, Pat Huntoon, at a stampy show in Madison, Wisconsin.  At that show, there was a lot of stampy goodness going down with gelatos, stencils, stamps and more.  Pat demonstrated gelatos and various techniques for two days!  You can imagine the volume of "samples" that existed after two days.  At a show like that, if the customers don't take the samples with them, they pretty much end up in the circular file.  I just couldn't have it so 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 Technique Junkie 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!

After mounting variously sized portions of the technique pieces on black cardstock, I added the sentiment.  I didn't want to cover up any of the beautifully vibrant background, so stamping on vellum was the natural choice.  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 ;)  #goteamalex
