Hope

Good morning! I'm so excited that SPRING is here... even though at the moment it's 45 degrees here and I wish it was more like 75 - 80 outside. So if the outside weather won't act like Spring, then I decided to make some flower cards inside to make me feel like Spring anyway.




  • Card base is cardstock from Stampin' Up cut @ 3 1/4" x 4 1/4" (this would make a great tag!)
  • Ivory cardstock cut @ 3" x 4"
  • Stampin' Up stamps from the "Summer Silhouettes" clear mount stamp set
  • Stampin Up inks used are:
    • Glorious Green (retired)
    • Eggplant Envy (retired)
    • Brilliant Blue (retired)
  • Close To My Heart inks used are:
    • Sunset (Adventure Collection)
    • Cranberry (Adventure Collection)
  • Cardz TV Stamp set "More Encouraging Thoughts" stamped using SU "Brilliant Blue"
  • The embossed flower attached with a Recollections brad has been stashed away since last year. So glad I got these back out again. I love the embossed flowers!

Very pretty and I love how you combined the stamped image as a focal point with the other embellishments.
