I was asked to host a “Hope You Can Cling To” challenge on Splitcoaststampers and I would love if you would join me. You can find the information about my challenge HERE. For my challenge I decided to honor a friend of mine (and former downline) who lost her battle with cancer in August. Although hers was not breast cancer, it was still extremely devastating. Robin was the Post Mistress of a small post office close to my house. I always went there to do all my swap mailings, we became friends then she joined my downline. She was one of the nicest people you would ever meet. She died at the age of 46. So in honor of Robin, my challenge on SCS is “Let’s Lick This Thing”…using postage stamps, postage stamp punch on your cards.
For my second card I stepped things up just a bit. I do LOVE this little flower image so decided to use it again. The base of the card is Wisteria Wonder. I took another piece of Wisteria Wonder and ran the bottom through the Delicate Designs embossing folder, layered on Whisper White, stamped Green in StazOn Jet Black, made a ‘bow’ (click on tutorial tab above to access my bow tutorial) using Lucky Limeade Ruffled Ribbon and a purple rhinestone brad (retired), added an extra piece of ribbon then wrapped around pane then added to the card base. I stamped the flower 4 times using StazOn Jet Black on Watercolor, colored with Elegant Eggplant and Lucky Limeade, punched with the 1″ Square Punch then layered onto Elegant Eggplant Postage Stamps. These are added to the card front using dimensionals.
