It has been seriously difficult to focus on anything stamping with Jax & Millie around! We're having too much fun! If you want to see more puppy photos, head on over to my Too Cool Stampers Facebook VIP Group.
Today, I'm sharing a couple of lovely cards created with the Hold On To Hope stamp set. This one is a keeper for your stamp collection!
The beautiful Hold On To Hope stamp set and coordinating Cross of Hope Framelits dies have made a fantastic addition to my stamp collection. It's so versatile! It will be my go-to stamp set & framelits for creating first communion, confirmation and baptism cards, and it's also perfect for sympathy, wedding and "hope" cards.
Million Dollar Achiever Stamps—Did you know the Hold On To Hope stamp set was inspired by Stampin' Up! Million Dollar Achiever Brandi Cox? I love that demos who hit that milestone have the opportunity to help create a stamp set with the Stampin' Up! design team. The sets are labeled with a special graphic in the catalog. Other current Million Dollar Achiever stamp sets are:
Background Basics—I embossed the 4" x 5-1/4" Whisper White background layer with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Texture Impressions Folder and secured it to the Sweet Sugarplum card base with a couple strips of Tear & Tape and SNAIL adhesive.
Silver Cross—I die-cut the Silver Foil cross with the Cross of Hope Framelits on the Precision Base Plate, then adhered it to a Whisper White solid cross die-cut with Multipurpose Glue. I mounted a 2-1/2" x 3-1/2" piece of Petal Garden Designer Series Paper onto a 2-5/8" x 3-5/8" piece of Old Olive, and popped up the layer onto the card front with Dimensionals. The cross is also popped up, then accented with a single Pearl Jewel.
Bundle It & Save—Purchase the Hold On To Hope stamp set and Cross of Hope Framelits together in a bundle to save 10%!
Sweet Sentiment—I stamped the Hold On To Hope sentiment in Old Olive ink onto a 2-1/4" x 1/2" strip of Whisper White. I love the shape of the Sweet Sugarplum label that I die-cut from the Petals & More Thinlits. It makes a lovely foundation for the popped up sentiment. I added a small Pearl Jewel on each side of the greeting, too.
Too Cool—The second version begins with a Pool Party card base and I used the de-bossed side of the Layered Leaves textured background.
Shimmer Cross—This time I die-cut the cross from Whisper White and layered it over a solid cross die-cut from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper. Oooh, that sparkle peeking through is so pretty! The Multipurpose Glue is a must for a secure hold on the Glimmer Paper. Hold it in place for about 30 seconds after gluing. The floral background is another pattern from Petal Garden DSP.
So pretty! What a lovely card to send someone who needs a little lift.
