Hope is Faith Blog Hop

Hello!
I am very excited to be participating in a special CSS DT inspirational blog hop tonight for Gina K Designs.

Feelings of Hope
Gina challenged the CenterStage 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.

Be sure to visit the rest of the CSS designer's that are participating in the hop tonight:
My first card was inspired by the above photo. As soon as I saw the photo, I knew that I wanted to use my brayer to create a scene card. I love the butterfly in the Hope is Faith Stamp Set. The flowers and leaf branches are from the Tropical Flowers and Framed flowers Stamp set.

I also made a couple more cards using the Hope is Faith stamp set and Theresa Momber's new Wings of Hope Digital Papers that she created just for the Hope is Faith stamp set.

I wanted the butterfly to look like it was fluttering on the card so I was stamped it twice on vellum and heat embossed on with Bridal ep and the other with pink ep. The "Hope is" is just a portion of the sentiment included in the Hope is Faith stamp set. Both the background dp and the dp in the circle are included in Theresa's Wings of Hope digi paper.
My last card shows the complete sentiment and I paired it with the Hand in Hand stamp set.
The purples in the Wings of Hope digi paper match Gina's Vibrant Violet and Lovely Lavender papers perfectly.
Enjoy the rest of the hop! I know I can't wait to see what the other CSS Designer's have to share with us.

Hugs,
