Look Forward With Hope | Handmade Card

Hello! Sorry we have neglected our blog lately, the last few weeks have been a challenge as I (Helen) had a nasty fall and have been in quite a lot of pain. So… as we have lots of inspiration to catch up with here on the blog, we are planning lots of posts over the next few days sharing the latest cards and projects from our fabulous Design Team and our wonderful guest designers! Jane Tyrrell is kicking things off with a gorgeous card that would brighten anyone’s spirits, it has definitely brightened mine! As I have now started a programme of physiotherapy, I will look forward with hope to being pain free again! Over to Jane…

Good Evening,

Today I have used one of the 3 lovely new sentiment sets. This one is called Look Forward with Hope. So many really positive sentiments, suitable for all occasions.

positive - quote - stamps - sentiment - rubber

I decided I wanted to make a seaside feel card. I added some distress oxides to speciality stamping card and then added some “sea” using paints.

I then added fossilized amber distress oxide ink through the Strobes stencil

rays - strobes - stencil

I decided I wanted more texture so I added texture paste through the strobes stencil in the same area. When dry I found that the sunshine in the set fitted perfectly inside. I also added some Glossy accents to the sun which you can see in the final photos.

I stamped some of the clouds directly onto the crackle and others I stamped onto card and fussy cut out.

I then stamped and coloured one of the sweet dolphins from the Mythical Mermaid stamp set

and fussy cut him out. I added a little sheen with Spectrum Noir sparkle.

I also stamped some waves using the stamp in the mermaid set. I then stamped the ‘don’t look back’ sentiment from the set, added the dolphin, a little white ink highlighting and my card was finished..

A couple of close ups…

And one final shot.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Back soon.

Bye for now,
