Bloom with Hope- Four Challenges in One!



Hi Stampers!

I had a chance to stamp this evening and wanted to play along with two of my favorite weekly challenge sites- The Pals Paper Arts PPA246 Color Challenge and Create with Connieand Mary CCMC349 Sketch Challenge along with the Just Add Ink JAI257 Inspiration Photo and the Splitcoaststamper's F4A262 "Get Krafty" Challenge- see details here and gallery here.  

Again, I hope you will take the time (if you have not done so already) to visit all of the above links to check out all of the Design Team entries as well as the galleries- tremendous inspiration from all!

To create this card:

Ink the background stamp, Post Card using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and stamp onto a  piece of Crumb Cake cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of Crisp Cantaloupe, trim again and mount onto the Crumb Cake card base.

Stamp the sentiment using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink directly onto the card front.

Also with Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink, stamp the flowers and leaves from Bloom with Hope onto Whisper White cardstock. 

Color the images using an AquaPainter™ with Crisp Cantaloupe and Pistachio Pudding Classic Ink and add definition with the corresponding Stampin’ Write markers.  

Color the branches and the center of the flowers with the Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write marker.

Carefully cut out the leaves and flowers ("fussy-cut") and mount onto the card front (using Stampin’ Dimensionals® for two of the flowers).

Ink part of the Positively Chevron background stamp using the Pistachio Pudding Stampin’ Write marker, carefully cover the flowers with scrap paper and barely touch the card front directly onto the Positively Chevron stamp to transfer just a part of the chevron to the card.

Add the colored stamp image from Postage Due to the upper right hand corner to finish off the card.

Quick and easy- I am starting to get used to this simpler style :-)

Stamp Sets: Bloom with Hope, Post Card, Positively Chevron, Postage Due

Ink:  Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink, Crisp Cantaloupe and Pistachio Pudding Classic Ink; Stampin’ Write Markers- Crisp Cantaloupe, Crumb Cake and Pistachio Pudding

Paper: Whisper White, Crisp Cantaloupe, Crumb Cake

Accessories: AquaPainter™


Thanks again for stopping by- I hope all of you have a time of reflection on this Good Friday remembering the sacrifice that Christ made for you….and that you have accepted His free gift of salvation!
