Hello! Welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. I design and create handcrafted greeting cards. I like to call this passion of mine "visual poetry" ....imagery on paper. Please feel free to browse the photos of my cards and leave a comment.

Don't Lose Hope


Flourishes Timeless Tuesday offered a challenge to create a card with a stamped image but......with NO COLORING. In the card that I made for this challenge my image and sentiment are blue but that was done by embossing with blue embossing powder. For a finishing touch I added some score lines across the bottom and right edges.

The products I used in this CAS card were as follows:

Card Stock:  GKD Pure Luxury white
Stamps:  HFC Sun Kissed Fleur Swirls, GKD Don't Lose Hope
Ink:   Versamark
Other:  Blue Embossing Powder

This was a very simple and easy card to create. I like to think, as the expression goes, that "less is more."  Hope you liked it and thanks for taking the time to stop and visit.

This card was entered in the following challenge(s):
