There are some amazing stamps in the Impression Obsession Fall/Winter release that offer hope and encouragement.  This Hope Set has 11 different images and phrases, including one scripture phrase, all of which are designed to bring peace and encouragement to the recipient of the project made from them.  Here is one of my cards using this set....
Hope Set WP990
Wacky Stitched Circles Dies DIE837-YY

I covered a white A2 card with patterned paper.  I stamped the image from the Hope Set onto Strathmore bristol stock, then used distress inks to watercolor her.  

I die-cut the image with one of the circle dies from the Wacky Circle Dies set, and attached it to the card front with foam tape for dimension.  I did add some color along the edges with distress ink.

I added some crystal swirls and a triple bow with button and string. 


I have lost so many of my loved ones to cancer, and I know how much a card and/or a note of encouragement and hope means during those times.  A card made and sent with these sensitive and caring phrases and images will be sure to lift the spirits of anyone who is going through this battle.

I have another card where I used two stamps from this set on my blog post HERE if you would like to see it. 

I am adding my card to these challenges:
Addicted To Stamps - Make your mark
Make My Monday - Friendship
Watercooler Wednesday - Anything goes feminine
