Both these cards are made using the Strength and Hope stamp set. For each of this set sold SU will donate £1.00 to Cancer Research.
The set can have many uses, basically it is to emphasise the strength and hope for people going through hard times, but like all the sets, the use can be whatever you want it to be.
I used marina mist, cajun craze and whisper white for the card above, the faux ribbon is made with marina mist card put through the crimper, an idea from Jacqueline.
The background of both card is made using the technique of inking the embossing folder with Versamark and sprinking with embossing powder and heat setting. For the one just above I used heat and stick and dazzling diamonds glitter.
