Hope for Haiti
Gina challenged the Center Stage Spotlight team to make a card with the new Hope is Faith stamp set using the photo above for inspiration. Check out Gina's blog for all the details on this special stamp set.
For my card, I used the colors from Gina's photo for my inspiration. All of the designer papers I chose to use are from the SEI Oasis collection, and are layered with Gina K's Pure Luxury Black Only card stock. I started by stamping the butterfly image down the side of the designer paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I then colored over the butterflies with my VersaMarker and embossed them with clear embossing powder. Next, I started layering paper down the opposite side of the card to start building up my border. I used my SU! Scalloped Border punch for the edge and added some black bling. I also added some trim that I thought mimicked the butterfly wings. I wanted to have the word "HOPE" stand out on the front of this card. I found some die-cut alphabets and pulled out the four letters that I needed. It looked okay, but it needed something more. I decided to replace the letter "O" with a flower - what do you think? I used a vintage pearl button with some black thread and added it to the flower's center to finish the front of my card.
I used the sentiment from Gina K's new Hope is Faith set for the inside of my card. I stamped the sentiment onto the dp, and cut it out using the Fancy Tags Nestabilities. I cut the same tag out a second time using the Black Onyx card stock, and cut off the curly ends to add to the sides of the sentiment to make it pop!
