I created this card for the wonderful Bev Rousch’s Hope You Can Cling to Challenge “Shine It Out!” back in October. I was cyber stamping with Tami Mayberry a little while ago and we created cards fro the same challenges. I thought it was only right to use one of her stamp sets for my sample.

Just before that, I had found a new challenge blog with a wonderful sketch and I wanted to use that for my card. My card base is very basic, a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece ofย Neenah Solar White cardstock, folded in half. The bottom corners were rounded.

I started by inking the heart from Hopeful Hearts first with Versamark ink, then with Memento’s Rosebud ink. It was then embossed with iridescent Ice Embossing powder to add sparkle. Next I stamped the solid circle from GKD Inspiration Mosaic in Pear Tart Memento Ink 3 1/2 times on the left and once on the right of the heart. A sentiment from Hopeful Hearts was stamped over the circles on the left in Jet Black Archival ink.

I scored one line under the shapes and two lines above. Beautiful Bling Border – Beautiful Bloom was added above the top score line. 5 Rhinestones from a Sleek Strips Silver Rhinestones were adhered to the bottom right and one above an i in the sentiment to finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs and smiles
