The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store - Always Find Hope Card

Hello everyone!  I can't tell you how good it feel to be back to creating again.  I have missed it so much.  It's been so long and might take me a little while to get back in to the swing of things but I'm working on it.  Today, I have a card to share with you.

The beautiful hydrangea image is from the Altenew - Garden Hydrangea stamp set and the sentiment is from the Stamp Simply Clear Stamps - Farmhouse Scriptural Quotes SS-026 stamp set.  The image of the hydrangea is so beautiful and makes me think of Spring.  I know am hoping for some warmer weather and maybe I am trying to will Spring to get here.  We are supposed to get more snow this Sunday!  

The stamp set is one of the great layering sets from Altenew and I used the Tim Holtz Stamp Platform to do all of the stamping. For the inks I used the Altenew 4 Cubes - Rose Petal (Rose Quartz, Puffy Heart, Purple Wine, Cosmic Berry), Green Fields (Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades, Evergreen).

After all of the stamping was done I used the Altenew - Garden Hydrangea Die set to die cut all of the pieces.

For the background I knew I wanted to do a simple watercolor with shades of blue.  I wanted to have a white edge around the paper so I used washi tape and applied it to the edges of the  Ranger -Watercolor Paper.  Then I started by adding water to the paper with the 1'' flat paint brush.  I used the #6 round paint brush to add in the color.  For the color I used three different shades of blue Distress Oxide Inks -  Peacock Feathers, Broken China, and Salty Ocean.

Once all of the color was added onto the background I used my heat tool to make sure the paper was good and dry.  Then I added a combination of water droplets and used the Zig Wink of  Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen to add some very fine droplets for some shimmer.

I used 3D Foam Squares to add the hydrangea and leaf die cuts.  Then I added more shimmer with the  Zig Wink of  Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen.  I also used Ranger Glossy Accents for the flower centers.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stamp Simply Clear Stamps - Farmhouse Scriptural Quotes SS-026 using Memento Tuxedo Black.  I love this verse!

I added the watercolor piece to the front of a white A2 top folding card base.  To add a little more sparkle to the card I added a few 5mm Crystal Cup Sequins.

All of the supplies to create the card are listed and linked below and can also be found on The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store site.  To see more card inspiration I encourage you to check out the Stamp Simply Blog.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I am so happy to be creating again.  Enjoy your weekend and if you are somewhere with this crazy cold weather stay warm!
