I found this stamp set really easy to use. I love the images – "H" hope, the wordsir, a butterfly and a baroque image – and their sizing is just right for card and other projects.
First, I made the tag using the Two Tags bigz die and Finial Press embossing folder for the Big Shot die-cutting machine. I rubbed my Crumb Cake ink pad over the top of the tag to accent the raised images.
Next, I stamped the H hope image and punched it out with the 1-1/4" square punch before layering it onto a Pretty in Pink cardstock punched Scallop Square. The butterfly was stamped in Pretty in Pink ink onto another piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and the words were stamped on top with Crumb Cake ink.
Don’t you love this combination of words? Definitely the strength part of this stamp set. I also stamped the baroque image in Crumb Cake ink and punched it with the smallest oval. I sponged Pretty in Pink ink around the edges of this piece.
To assemble the tag, I added Very Vanilla seam binding to the top and tied it with linen thread. I used a Vintage Trinkets safety pin to add the oval. I adhered the butterfly/words stamped piece to the tag and then added the H hope stamped piece with dimensionals. The last embellishment was a Vintage Trinket brad with a center Basic Pearl and folded Chantilly Crochet Trim.
I plan to use this Strength & Hope tag as a bookmark but it could be easily added to a card as well.
