My first card is for the Butterflies of Hope Challenge (HYCCT1113) hosted by Wendy Weixler. Butterflies are a symbol of hope and renewal, and you are asked to incorporate them on your creation. This is also my first card using my very first Verve stamps. I am seriously in awe with this gorgeous stamp set. The butterfly design is so unique and unlike any other butterfly stamps I've seen. And I love how it comes in two different sizes. I am a chronic quote hoarder, so the inspiring quotes was another reason why I was drawn to this stamp set.
To create this card, first stamp butterflies in Versamark ink onto white cardstock and heat emboss with black embossing powder. Apply distress inks with a small piece of sponge; then lightly mist with a DIY pearl mist (Perfect Pearl + water mix). Cut out and color the white cut edges with a black pen. Next, stamp ginkgo leaves stamp in Versamark ink onto a piece of white cardstock; brush Perfect Pearl onto stamped image. Stamp quote in black ink, and distress edges with an edge scraper. Create antennae with black wire and affix with tape. Then adhere butterflies with Glossy Accents.
Here is a closer look at the yummy shimmer
on the ginkgo leaves and butterflies.
The following card is for the Brave Heart Challenge (HYCCT1112) hosted by Teresa Kline. You have to use at least one heart on your creation to honor the patients and families for their bravery in the fight against cancer.

The third card is for the Colors of Hope Challenge (HYCCT1107) hosted by Lori McAree. The colors green and yellow represent hope and brown represents comfort. This challenge asks you to use these three colors in any shade you'd like.
