"Comfort & Hope" Card Tutorial

HAPPY FRIDAY! I'm posting this a bit late in the day but I wanted to share a beautiful card tutorial with you. This card was created by Amy Cook, for this month's Leaders Project Sheet group and it features the lovely "Comfort & Hope" stamp set!

Here is the inside of the card:


  • Crumb Cake: 5 ½” x 8 ½”, scored at 4 ¼”, (card base)

  • Blushing Bride: 5 ¼” x 4”

  • Whisper White: 5’ x 3 ¾”; ¾” x 3 ¼” strip

  • Fluid 100 Watercolor paper: 5’ x 3 ¾”

  • Designer Paper: 1’ x 3 ½” strip


  1. Squeeze the Blushing Bride ink pad -while closed- in order to put some ink on the lid. Use watercolour painter to squeeze some water onto the lid and brush a watercolour wash background onto the watercolour paper. While the background wash is still wet – stamp the herringbone pattern in blushing bride on the right side. Allow to dry.

  2. Stamp the saying with Crumb Cake ink onto the Whisper White strip. Use a punch or scissors to cut the banner end.

  3. Cut the end of the Designer Series strip on an angle.

  4. When dry, stamp the circle pattern in Crumb cake ink onto the right side of the watercolour paper. Use Early Espresso ink to stamp the foliage.

  5. Adhere the Blushing Bride to the Crumb Cake card base. Adhere to the watercolour background to the Blushing Bride layer.

  6. Adhere the Designer Series paper strip to the watercolour paper as shown. Use Fine Tip Glue pen to adhere to the In Good Taste Elements as shown.

  7. Use Stampin’ Up! Dimensionals to adhere to the saying.

  8. Stamp the Whisper White inside as shown with Crumb Cake ink. To achieve the two-tone look of the foliage – stamp once with a fully inked stamp and then immediately again without reinking the stamp in between.

  9. Adhere to the inside. Give to someone who could use a hug right now. 😊
