Hope is Faith... A fundraising effort to help earthquake devastated Haiti.
Feelings of Hope
Gina K has challenged the CenterStage Spotlight team to make a card with the new Hope is Faith stamp set using the photo above for inspiration. Check out Gina's blog for all the details on this special stamp set.Here's my card... and one more below as well.
I worked with a bit of the flower colors although mine are not quite as bright and I used a similar style flower on my card. The butterfly was stamped on velum and copic colored then cut out and popped up for dimension. I used the crackled background stamp from Gina K's Bold Flowers - I embossed it with a mustard colored EP but it really lightened up when it heat set. It's new so maybe it's supposed to do that? I also had a beautiful blended yellow ribbon in my stash which pulled the yellows into my color palette and it worked perfectly to stamp the sentiment right onto the ribbon. My 2nd layer is embossed with swiss dots CB folder. A few golden rhinestones for a touch of sparkle. On the inside I used the same yellow paper but stamped a portion of the B-fly in the corner.
Here's another card I made with this same set for the recent Gina K release party. If you were at the party you probably saw this one.
On this one I used Theresa's awesome digi paper called Wings of Hope. It's beautiful. Isn't it great how completely different the two cards are - all depending on colors, accents, bling etc. I love the versatility of these beautiful stamps and papers. *sigh*
Those of you who have come to know my story might remember that I was on the Stampin' Cruise with GinaK in October 2008. Haiti was our first port of call and it was an amazing experience. I hold a special memories of this beautiful island and want to help the people who have suffered such loss.
