My friend Brenda is the hostess for the StampTV Wednesday Inspiration Challenge. I made this card to participate.
The stamp set used for this card is "Hope Grows" available from Gina K Designs. I love this new set illustrated by Theresa Momber. The larger group of leaves in this set was stamped twice. This is a solid stamp so I used markers to color directly on the rubber. First I used a light green marker then used a darker marker to add some contrast. I used a fine water mist to blend the colors prior to stamping. Next the verse, also from this set, was stamped using a stamp positioner. Five flowers were stamped and cut out and placed among the leaves using dimensional tape. Circle Nestabilities were used for the circles. The stamped image was cut out prior to attaching the flowers.
A piece of Basic Grey design paper was attached to the bottom of the card with another piece of white card stock, that was embossed, attached to the top portion. A Martha Stewart punched border was added across the middle with a narrow strip of pink cs attached along the top of it. A piece of pink ribbon from Gina K was used for the bow. Two pearls were added to the top to complete the card.
Hope you will participate in this challenge. You could win a Gina K Designs stamp set of your choice valued up to $24.95.
