Look Forward With Hope

Good Evening, we are back with our 3rd and final inspirational post today. Sharon Traynor has created a gorgeous and really uplifting card featuring stamps from our ‘Look Forward With Hope’ set…

Hello there,

Today’s card is spreading a positive message and was created as inspiration for the ‘Brighten Someone’s Day’ challenge, and what can be brighter or more cheery than spreading a little sunshine and hope, eh?

This ‘Look Forward With Hope’ stamp set is one that I regularly turn to for spreading some cheer or just giving someone a little boost.  It is full of beautiful and positive sentiments.

Here is how I made this card:

First, mask off the top portion of the sentiment like I’ve done in this photograph, ink it up, remove the masking and stamp then heat emboss the sentiment onto a strip of vellum.

Next, stamp the sunshine in a rainbow of colours all over a white panel of card.

Now run the panel through an embossing folder for some texture, and distress the edges with some yellow ink.

Add stickles to the centre of each sun and set aside to dry.

Wrap the vellum strip around the panel and mount the panel onto a white card blank with 3d foam.

Sending you all big, virtual hugs,
Sharon xx
