Hope with Laura

by Laura

Hello there!

Laura here and today I have a fun project to share with you featuring the Hope Stamp Set.

I thought I would try a color combination that I've never tried before. I don't think I've ever combined purple and orange together, other than maybe at Halloween time, but they are absolutely gorgeous paired together.Altenew-HopeTo begin, I blended Midnight Violet on the bottom of a panel and Orange Cream on the top. I adhered the beautiful Dotted Washi Tape over the ink blended panel, which really toned down the colors, but still allowed you to see the subtle purple and orange ink blending.
Altenew-HopeThe next step was stamping the beautiful floral images from the Hope Stamp Set.

For the bloom, I used the Shades of Purple ink set and for the leaves, I used the Green Meadows ink set. I also added Sunkissed and Autumn Blaze for the center of the bloom.Altenew-HopeThen I die cut a circle window opening into the background panel using one of the Halftone Circles Nesting Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Hope Stamp Set and embossed a coordinating sentiment in white onto a strip of purple cardstock.Altenew-Hope

Here is a video to show you how I created this cardARVE Error: need id and provider

Absolutely beautiful card! I particularly love the look of the buds. They are sweet and add so much to the already opened layered bloom. Waiting for my “Hope” set to arrive!

Awesome card Laura, I love this colour combination. They remind me of Spring and crocuses, who are often purple with orange stamen. Thanks for this beauty!

YUP! I love it too! So pretty and the Washi tape over the orange & purple makes it dreamy looking. Its stunning!

Wow! This card is stunning! I’ve been lax about trying new techniques, at least new to me. I’ve been papercrafting since 2004 and have never really tried ink blending or played with washi tape! This card makes me want to do both, thank you Laura, for all of the wonderful inspiration!
