Happy Thursday… for those of you who want to know where the title of the post comes, it is the first line of Emily Dickinson’s poem which I reprinted below. In it she tells us that hope is a gift for all of us and that it is something we all can call upon especially in tough moments, but “hope” never asks for anything in return… That, along with the fact that April is “National Poetry Month, is the inspiration for my card today for Crafts and Me.
The design paper is from Pion called Fairytale of Spring-Violet. These 6×6 papers (four on one 12×12 sheet) make coordinating papers so easy and I promise everything you create with them will look beautiful. It is so hard to cut them up!
The colored cardstock is my latest favorite, “Core’dinations Distress Cardstock” that I purchase in Joanns- every color is a perfect match for every color distress ink… again, very easy to find a perfect match for those Pion papers! I distressed the edges of all with Brushed Courduroy distress ink and blender tool. The embellies feature shabby crinkled seam binding and lace from Live and Love Crafts, velvet ribbon from The Ribbon Girls and flowers & heart pearls from WOC.
Her balloon got a dose of Diamond Glaze and her dress, hair and wings were glittered with Deco Art Glamour Dust. That’s it for me today. Why not hop over to the Crafts and Me challenge where the digi team is hosting a “Buttons and Bow” challenge! Have a great day, and thank you for your kind comments! I will be entering this card in the following challenges”
