Hope Faith Always - His Love Stamp Set

 Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you my card for this week's sketch challenge at the Spot Challenge Blog.  I used a stamp set that I have been wanting to use for a long time but just didn't have the right project to use it on.  I have had this card for serval months now.  I thought this would be the prefect time to use it since everyone could use a little reminder that to always have hope and faith.  Here's a look at my card.

I am talking about the His Love Stamp Set.  I purchased this stamp set as I said a few months ago and just haven't had the right project to use it on.  So I pulled it out today to create this fun project. I also pulled the Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper, a few Stampin' Blends, and a few additional supplies to create with.  

"Christian tradition views the butterfly as a symbol of resurrection. According to the Old Testament story, Christ died on the cross, was buried in a tomb for three days, and came to life again to offer hope of life after death. For Christians, butterflies are especially significant symbols during the Easter season." (owlcation.com)  Butterflies can also represent transition, celebration, and lightness in artwork.  Which is why I thought the Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper and the little butterfly from the Brilliant Wings Dies would play every nicely with the His Love Stamp Set.

The His Love Stamp Set offers ability to create inspirational projects with the greetings and images inside the stamp set.  It's a lovely way to express your faith.  I picked to stamp the praying hands on my card because I thought it fit the designer series paper that I used.  Plus, I could do some fun coloring.  I used a three color blend on the hands.  I used my Stampin' Blends Color Chart (that I shared on my post yesterday; if you missed that you can click here).  By using my color chart I found that I could get a beautiful skin tone.  I used a three color blend to achieve this beautiful skin tone.  I used Petal Pink Light, Petal Pink Dark, and Ivory Stampin' Blends to get this great skin tone.  I then cut the hands out with a circle from the Layering Circles Dies.

I stamped my sentiment right on the two strips of designer series paper that I placed on my card front.  I also stamped the last sentiment right on the bottom on of the of the base layer.  I then popped the die cut circle up over this layer and added a butterfly that I die cut from some scrap So Saffron Cardstock using the Brilliant Wings Dies.  Here's a look at the sketch that inspired my card.  You can click here to visit the Spot challenge post to see what the other design team members came up with. 


To finish off my card for today's project I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels.  Thanks for dropping by today.  If you need any of the supplies that you have seen used on my card you can pick them up in my online store by clicking on the item in the Stampin' Up! Shopping List below.
