Strength and Hope with elegant soiree

Happy Friday everyone!

Today is the last card in the Strength and Hope series and I've found that the parts of this stamps set that I wouldn't normally use are fast becoming my favourites. The combination of Elegant Soiree and Strength and Hope has really surprised me in how well it has worked. Here is the second card using the Elegant Soiree paper.

Strength and Hope with Elegant Soiree
I have used the same Eyelets border punch as yesterday on the Elegant Soiree and the Early Espresso card stock. The ribbon is Early Espresso satin and is just gorgeous to work with. The card itself is made out of Not Quite Navy A4 which is one of my favourite colours.


A close up of the bow which doesn't do it justice! This was made with a modified fork bow technique, using two fingers instead of the fork meaning that you can make the bows as big or small as you want to. I learned this Technique at one of Michelle Last's  technique classes and it is so easy to do, plus you get perfect bows every time!

The sentiment in this card is the same as yesterday (but I was more careful when inking it up this time!) using one line of the script inked in Early Espresso. I left this card quite plain, but you could add more elements of the stamp set (like a butterfly) to make it more ornate.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog this week, and thank you so much to Nicole for all of your lovely comments, if you like what I am doing, or you would like to suggest a Stampin' Up stamp set or product for a series of posts then leave me a comment below, I would love to hear from you.

Don't forget the free Stamp set offer for anyone purchasing the starter kit from me, and the free catalogues for anyone placing and order over £25 with me.

See you soon for some beautiful blooms.
