Strength and Hope - a repost
Inks: Baja Breeze, Marina Mist, Tangerine Tango, Cherry Cobbler, Bashful Blue, Cherry cobbler marker to isolate the word "Courage" for the sentiment
Papers: Marina Mist, Paisley Petals Designer Paper, Whisper White, Marina Mist, Tangerine Tango
Accessories: Scallop border punch, Curly Label Punch, Rhinestones, 1 14" circle punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, Scallop circle die #2, dimensionals, paper piecer, Heart to Heart punch, dazzling diamonds.
The butterflies were stamped using the rock and roll technique. Two of the butterflies were stamped with Bashful Blue and Marina Mist, and on the other two Tangerine Tango and cherry Cobbler. I also used the same technique for the H (tangerine tango and cherry cobbler). The butterflies were hand cut and mounted on top of each other. Rhinestones were put on the body and top of the antennae.
In the center of the focal point, I repeatedly stamped the word stamp using Baja breeze ink, and the butterflies were mounted on top of that.
The 1" band was stamped with the floral image of the stamp set. I punched out the smallest heart from the Heart to Heart punch and mounted it on top of the heart of this floral image. Of course the card had to have a little bling, so dazzling diamonds was put on these hearts.
This stamp set is retired now and I must admit I really miss it.
I hope to go home from the hospital today, but there is still an element of uncertainty as my blood levels of the blood thinners have not stabilized out yet. Keep your fingers crossed for me.
