Power of Hope Lily Impressions Encouragement Card

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a card made with two Saleabration Items from the 2020 Sale-a-bration Brochure.  Saleabration is the best time of the year at Stampin' Up!, It's the time of year that you are rewarded for every $50 increment that you purchase before shipping and taxes.  I used the Power of Hope stamp set that's part of the Power of Hope Bundle, and the Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper on my card today.  In my opinion these are the perfect pair to create with.  Here's a look at my card.


The Power of Hope Bundle includes the Power of Hope Cling Stamp Set and Stone 3D Embossing Folder. Pair the stamp set and embossing folder for artistic coordination, or use them separately for even more options.

I picked the colors of my cards from the Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper.  There are a ton of wonderful colors in this pack of paper.  One of the great things about Stampin' Up!'s designer series paper is that you can then use the colors in it to add the coordinating cardstock, ink and embellishments to your projects without fear that they may not match as with some other companies products.  Stampin' Up! is known for their color coordination so you can play with everything that's offered in our catalogs and know without a doubt that they will match.  This was a big reason that I decided to join as a demonstrator almost five years ago.
After cutting my designer series paper down to 5 1/4 x 4 I needed to put a layering piece behind it.  For my layers on my original card I picked Coastal Cabana.  I cut one layer at 4 1/8 x 5 3/8, and cut my scalloped square from a scrap piece using the Layering Square Dies.  I also cut a stitched square from Whisper White Cardstock to stamp on.
I repeated these same process for the card that I made in the video but changed up the color and the pattern of the Designer Series Paper.  For the second card I used Grapefruit Grove.  The stamping was all done the same.  I added the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding to the card front to add a little more texture.
On the inside of each card I stamped the geisha from the Power of Hope stamp set in the inside as soon as you open the side folding card.  I stamped her in Grapefruit Grove on both cards.  You can see a little peak of her on the inside with this photo.
