cQc #356 ~ Faith, Hope, Love

Hiya sweet peeps! Today is Tuesday and that means a new palette from ColourQ! This card was created specifically for my sister-in-law who is in need of prayer right now. It's on it's way to her as I type this post. I hope she feels the love that comes along with it.




This started with my little hydrangea stamp I picked up in Cape Cod a few years ago. I'll never forget the beautiful blue hydrangea bushes I saw on Nantucket. When I found it in the neatest stamp store in Hyannis, I new I had to have it. It's by Inkadinkado and I just love it!! I stamped it repeatedly to create my own patterned paper then gave it a striped and blue border. Both borders were cut using Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Borders 2 (straight line stitch) and 4 (scallop) dies. The sentiment (Hero Arts) was stamped onto Blackberry Bliss paper and embossed in white. The paper looks black here, but I promise it's Blackberry Bliss!! To mimic the sparkle in the inspiration photo, I added PPP Sparkling Clear sequins (4mm & 6mm).


You know you want to play along after seeing these pretty colors..am I right!! Can't wait to see your card in our gallery. Have a great day ~Lisa

Oh Lisa this is gorgeous! Hydrangeas are my absolute favorite flower. I love the background you made and the color is perfect. I tried to look up this stamp with no luck. Is there a name on the stamp, I just typed in Inkadinkado hydrangea. I love this stamp. Thanks for sharing and inspiring.

Oh-so-sweet, as all your creations are, Lisa. I'm sure your sister in law will appreciate your kindness. :-) The little hydrangea stamp reminds me of a flower in a Stampin' Up! set called Sweet Summer.

There's nothing quite like the blue hydrangeas you find on the Cape here! I'm glad they inspired you to buy this stamp, which in turn inspired you to create this beautiful background. What a lovely card. I'm sure your sister-in-law will love it and she will surely benefit from your prayers.
