StampTV Lean On Me Card Kit Blog Hop

Welcome to another StampTV Card Kit Blog Hop. The stamp set for the card kit this month is Lean on Me. Such a fabulous stamp set, with beautiful flowers and some great sentiments to use for a card you want to send to someone that may need a pick me up. My favorite sentiment in the set is "Praying for You". I know I will be using it a lot to make cards to send out. A little reminder that I care and will say a prayer on their behalf.

I made two cards for the hop. This first card was a wow card to me when I was finished. Every once in a while I create something that surprises me. When I was done with this one I squealed with delight because it turned out the way I wanted it to and it did not take hours to make. LOL! I made the card using the Inspiration Challenge over at SplitCoastStampers. What a cool, inspirational site Stephanie had for the challenge this week.  Here is a link to the tapestry that caught my eye and inspired me to make this card.


Stamps: Lean on Me
Other: Spellbinders Fancy Tags and Labels Trio, red gingham ribbon, small red button, bakers twine

For my second card I used the sketch from Mercy Karin's blog. I used some brighter colors and some embossing on this one. I like the small sprig silhouette that comes from the set. It looks great all on its own  stamped in a bunch. Here is a link to the sketch.

The red and kraft is definitely an eye popper! I also love the two toned stamping of the yellow and blue! Beautiful!

Two great looking cards -- I particularly like the design of the first one -- so simple but so striking.
