I feel very honoured to be in Kylie's Top Ten Winners Blog Hop. I want to send a big thank you to Kylie for organizing all the Blog Highlights and Hops and helping when needed.
Now, on with my Winners Post. Recently, I bought the Feels Like Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) and have been very inspired to create non-Christmas cards. The paper is absolutely captivating! It's hard to choose which sheet to use. This DSP makes card-making easy, it's so subtle yet stunning and compliments my style of card-making, clean and simple.
The theme for this blog hop is Encouragement. I felt this sentiment would be great for my friend who is having a lot of health problems.
Although it's a little hard to see, I masked the Night of Navy cardstock using the dots mask and Night of Navy ink. I didn't want to detract from the paper but I felt that the Night of Navy cardstock needed something. I feel the white die cuts work with the DSP.
Pearls always add a touch of class to any project. When teamed with the subtle textured dotted lace ribbon, the project becomes even more elegant. For the inside of the card, I used Whisper White cardstock and a strip of the same DSP down the long side of the card.
I just know my friend is going to love it! That's why I create cards, to uplift my friends and family. I also love teaching people to make their own cards and find the same satisfaction that I get when giving a loved one a card that I've made with my own two hands.
If you don't already have a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, I would love to help you in your creative journey.
