Stampin’ Up Hold On To Hope

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  How is your week going?   Today’s our first full day of spring.  I’ve got a lot of crocus and daffodils blooming at my house, so that’s a sure sign of warmer weather coming.

For today’s card I made another quick and easy card for you using the Painted Seasons Bundle which is a FREE Sale-A-Bration item with a $100 order.  Only 10 days left to get your Sale-A-Bration items!!   Here’s my card.

I started with a Whisper White card front and adhered it to a Petal Pink mat and then to a Poppy Parade mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped a piece of the beautiful Petal Pink/Whisper White 5/8″ Variegated Ribbon around it and tied a knot.  I adhered the matted card front to a Thick Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I took a piece of the gorgeous Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper and adhered it to a Petal Pink mat and then to a Poppy Parade mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted DSP to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the ‘God Is Love’ sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Hold On To Hope Stamp Set in Poppy Parade Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using my Big Shot and the Cross Of Hope Framelits Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the center of the DSP using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the flower image from the Stampin’ Up Painted Seasons Stamp Set in Petal Pink Ink on the corners of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the same stamp set in Call Me Clover Ink by the flowers and I stamped the center of the flowers in Early Espresso Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up You’re Inspiring Stamp Set in Poppy Parade Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower image from the Painted Seasons stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a piece of Painted Seasons DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  We made this card at my last workshop and everyone was able to put it together really quick.

Don’t forget Sale-A-Bration is only here for another 10 days.  So don’t wait any longer if there is something you’ve had your eye on.  Get it while it’s still available because after the 31st Sale-A-Bration items will be gone for good.  

Happy Stamping!!
