Calling All Sistahs Blog Hop

It is the 17th of the month of May and what does that mean? It is time for the "Sistahood Blog Hop" over at CAS-ual Fridays Stamps. You should have come here from Archana's Blog.


I created a simple card using the "Hope Ribbon" CAS-ual Fridays Stamp Set and the "Hope" CAS-ual Fridays Fri-Die to create my card.


I stamped the ribbon in Versamark ink onto white card stock and embossed it using Zing "Grapefruit Pink"embossing powder. I used an craft knife and a bowl to create the curve at the bottom of the white card panel and then mounted it using foam adhesive over an embossed pink card base.


I then used Stickles in "Fruit Punch" to add some sparkle inside the hearts.

While the hearts were drying, I die cut the hope sentiment out of pink card stock four times and glued them together to give it some dimension. I then adhered it to the front of the card.


My last step was to adhere the sentiment with foam adhesive that I stamped in black onto a white card stock strip.
