Abundant Hope

Abundant Hope is onEaster Blessings 2e of my favorite retired sets and perfect for Sending Springtime Smiles 1Easter and spring.





I love the contrast between the Night of Navy and Daffodil Delight.  The daffodil image was colored with Stampin’ Write Markers, moistened with “huffs” of breath and then stamped on Whisper White cs.  I did add some extra color to the daffodils with the fine point of the Daffodil Delight marker.  The leaves were colored with Old Olive.  The navy mat was die cut from Perfect Pennants Bigz L.  The new Needlepoint Border Embossing Folder gives a bit of texture between the daffodil and the DSP.  This embossing folder is so subtle yet ties together the scallop theme of the card.  The two styles of DSP shown above will be available at the March Stamp Camp and you can choose your favorite.  I found the thin navy ribbon at the bottom of my ribbon box and it adds the perfect contrast to the upper card.  Finally, the navy stamped message matted to the navy scallop oval carries thru the color contrast.  A butterfly or two would be perfect, but I must have forgotten to add it – another senior moment.  So Saffron cs, die cut with the new oval framelits provide a perfect background inside the card for the message of your choice.

This is the fourth card we will be creating at the March Stamp Camp – Friday March 1st,  4 – 9 PM and Saturday March 2nd, 9 AM – 4 PM.  $10 is the cost for the 4 cards.  If you plan on attending, send me a quick E-mail if you can.  This helps with knowing how much paper to cut.  But we always have extra packets ready, so if you decide at the last second to stop by, you know Debbi and I would love to see you.  Next Stamp Camp is the first weekend in April – April 5th and 6th and water is the theme – guaranteed to be a splash!
