Flowering Foils and Power of Hope Card Idea

Maui Blog Hop
Welcome to the Maui Achievers Blog Hop for March where demonstrators across the globe share our creations to inspire and empower your creativity.  You are at Candy Rattray,  The full list of participants is at the bottom of this blog post with links to all them all--so be sure to keep hopping after you see my post!

I have an inspirational card for you today featuring Power of Hope Bundle (cling stamp set bundled with the awesome Stone 3D Embossing Folder) plus Flowering Foils Designer Series Paper.  That means the stamps are free, the embossing folder is free, and the DSP is free.  Such is the power of Sale-a-Bration! (aka SAB2020)

 This greeting from Power of Hope Bundle is one of my all-time favorite sentiments!  The words are powerful, and I love the mixed fonts combining a casual cursive with a somewhat modern lowercase print.   The Stone 3D Embossing Folder adds the perfect subtle yet essential amount of texture to make my color palette and profound words shine in the center stage placement.

Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper is so fun to work with.  For this handmade card, I ran a piece through a die-cutting machine with a scalloped stitched rectangle from So Sweetly Stitched Dies and then sponged it with both Flirty Flamingo and Merry Merlot inks for a strong sunset effect.  It's quick, super easy, and lots of fun to do!

Remember that Sale-a-Bration (aka SAB2020) runs through March 31 only, so hop to my online store to earn any of the items I used today for free:  stamps, embossing folder, Designer Series Paper.  
I'll be demonstrating this card tomorrow on my Tuesdays @ 2 Facebook live at (at 2 PM CDT).  So please join me there!  Now it's time to  click on the next blog to keep hopping for more creative inspiration!

Card Idea for Flowering Foils Designer Series Paper

Flowering Foils-Purple-2
Flowering Foils Designer Series Paper is FREE during Sale-a-Bration (through March 31), and it is seriously gorgeous!  I demonstrated this card on my Tuesdays @ 2 Facebook Live this week and also made it with a group of local stampers at my monthly free card class.  Click here to read about my free class for April on Wednesday the 8th, and be sure to join us if you are in the San Antonio area. floweringfoilsstampinupsab2020candyrattraytagsinbloom

Today's card features 2 items that are free during Sale-a-Bration:

  1. Flowering Foils Designer Series Paper
  2. Tags in Bloom photopolymer double stamp set

I used Stampin' Blends to color the flowers and leaves in the Flowering Foils DSP for a springtime look that is sure to wow.  Small touches added to the pretty look:  scalloped linen ribbon, pearlized doily, and pearls.  This would make a great wedding card or spring birthday card for a special lady.  Click here for free pdf tutorial for my card idea for Flowering Foils Designer Series Paper.
