Strength & Hope – Thank You


     This is the first chance I’ve had to even play with this lovely new set, Strength & Hope.  Since this is a “card-0f-firsts”, I also gave my Watercolor Pencils a go and tried my hand at the Framed Tulips Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on a square panel.  For the butterfly, I used my Watercolor Pencils directly onto the stamp and then misted the stamp with water before stamping it onto a piece of Whisper White card stock. 

     Each of these techniques will require a bit more refining.  Overall, I am very satisfied at how this card turned out.  Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you’ve been inspired to give something that you’ve been putting off a try!  You just might like how it turns out!



All supplies are Stampin’ Up! and can be purchased here.


  1. Love the clean and simple look Leslee. Elegant but understated. Very nice. Sorry I have been MIA lately - I do pop in for a looksee, though don't always get time to leave a comment. Hope you are well ♥

  2. What a beautifully elegant card, Leslee! Love the square framed tulips. I found a tutorial on how to do this but haven't got around to trying it! Hugs xxaxx
