Hope & Love | Uplifting Card

Hi there! We have Jane here on the blog to inspire you today with a beautiful uplifting card entitled ‘Hope and Love’ featuring our Love is Love face stamps with our HOPE definition stamp…

Good Afternoon and happy new year. I am back today with my first design team post of 2021 for Visible Image.

We have a challenge running over in our customer Facebook group called “Hope and Colour ” where we would like you to use inspiring words and bright colours. It would be great to see you join us, all the details are at the bottom of this post. There is a whopping £40 coupon prize for 1st place and 2 runner up prizes of £25 coupons. All winners are drawn randomly so everyone has a chance to win, and you can enter as many times as  you like!

For some inspiration for the challenge I decided to work with these 3 awesome, and very relevant for 2021, stamp sets.

Love is Love

face stamps | love is love

butterfly | dragonfly | rubber stamps | line drawings

and the hope sentiment from the Equality Hope and Love set.

Equality Hope Love | Sentiment Stamps | Definitions

This is what I got up to ;

I made a very simple Brushos background using rose red sprinkled some onto watercolour card which I had wetted first with my distress sprayer. Once dry I stamped the sentiment in place.

I then stamped in black Archival and clear embossed the insects from Summer Wings onto acetate coloured with alcohol inks. I fussy cut them out.

I stamped in black and clear embossed the left handed face from Love is Love onto a piece of inky mop up card and cut it out.

I coloured in a few of the elements with watercolour pens, adding glossy accent to some of the circles. I then put everything together.

Here is my finished card

Bye for now,

This is a perfect card for these current times, and reminds us that spring isn’t too far away now. We love the delicate touches of brusho paints in your background, and the acetate butterflies and face look fabulous! Thank you  ♡
