Today I'm sharing with you a sneak peek at the soon to be released Stampin' Up! "Power of Hope Stamp Set" and coordinating Stone 3D Embossing Folder.
The first card I created was a simple stamping card with a little colouring using the Light and Dark Poppy Parade Stampin' Blends. For the branches and flowers I used the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set which coordinated beautifully. The sun image came from the Waterfront Stamp Set. The mat die-cut behind the sentiment came from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies - my new favourite set.
The 2nd card I got a little more creative and made a Japanese lantern by stamping on Whisper White with Smoky Slate and the Birch Stamp. Then I stamped the image and coloured with blends, die-cut with a circle die and embossed with the Corrugated 3D Embossing Folder. The background was a piece of Poppy Parade cardstock randomly stamped with the tree from the set using Golden Glitz Delicata Ink. I finished it off with a strip of Basic Black that had been embossed with the Stone 3D Embossing Folder, a little Linen Thread and mounted on the card front.
For my last card I wanted to combine all three of the main images on the one card, and changed the main coordinating colour to Real Red. I stamped the images first then die-cut each with the Stitched Rectangle dies, and added a slightly larger mat piece in Real Red. The flowers and branch were die-cut from the Seasonal Layers dies in Crumb Cake, Poppy Parade and Flirty Flamingo. The background piece is Crumb Cake embossed with the Stone 3D Embossing Folder and a strip of Basic Black.
This is not a stamp set that I would normally reach for but I did enjoy being creative and trying something different.
