Polished Pink - Pink Sunday

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am kicking off my series on Breast Cancer Awareness and sharing a new project each Sunday all month long using a different shade of Pink from Stampin' Up!. This week I am featuring Polished Pink and I have a super cute project to share with you using this color.

For this week's Pink Sunday Project I used the Host Set Caroling Mice and the sentiment came from the Charming Sentiments Bundle. I started out by stamping the background of the card base made from a piece of Basic White Cardstock with the tree from the Caroling Mice Host Stamp Set. Yes, I stamped them all in Polished Pink Classic Ink.

I then added a strip of Polished Pink Cardstock down the edge of the card to draw attention to the color. I then stamped one of the mice from the Caroling Mice Host Stamp Set in Polished Pink Classic Ink onto a piece of Basic White Cardstock, before coloring it the scarf, hat, and coat with my Polished Pink Stampin' Blends. I did add in a little Melon Mambo Stampin' Blends for the contrast in the shadow areas of the coloring.

Polished Pink:

Polished Pink is a bright cheerful medium toned Pink that's darker than Blushing Bride, but lighter than Melon Mambo. It's also one of the 2021-2023 In Colors. So, in May when we get a new Annual Catalog Polished Pink will be retired and we will get a new In Color in its place. But for now it comes in the Classic Ink Pad, a Set of Stampin' Blends Combo Pack, Ribbon, embellishments, Ink Refills, and some of the Designer Series Paper.

Polished Pink is a fun playful color that can be mixed and match with a lot of the other colors in the Stampin' Up! Color Families. It's to me the color that you see most often used during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Here's a small list of all the Polished Pink Products currently available:

Breast Cancer Awareness Month:

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual campaign to raise awareness about the impact of breast cancer. You will see lots of pink this month in support of survivors, to bring awareness, and in remembrance just to name a few reasons.

The National Breast Cancer Foundation Inc.'s Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign this month is to "RISE to ensure every woman has access to the screenings she needs and the support she deserves. When we RISE, we Rally in Screening Everyone." You can find out more about their organization and to donate to the cause on their website here!
