Challenge Title: Clearly Hopeful!
Hostess: TexasGrammy (Bev Gerard)
Keyword: HYCCT1221
Date: Monday, October 22, 2012

I'm so glad to see you here at our 3rd annual Hope You Can Cling To challenges! ' Clearly ' this is a most inspirational and powerful challenge that brings stampers together for a cause that has the potential to impact each one of us in some personal way.

In my case, a good friend and neighbor is at the beginning of her journey to rid her body of breast cancer. Breast cancer patients need many things on a regular basis, including excellent medical care, love, and it is very clear to me that they desperately need hope . It's so easy for patients to lose hope along their journey. For some, it can even be difficult to find hope. So let's fill the gallery with 'Clearly Hopeful' creations!

Extra!!: Here's an inspirational song by Johnny Nash to put you in the clearly hopeful crafty spirit!

Ready? Here are your challenge details . Remember, we can see 'clearly' now! ;) Clear, you say? Here are a few kick-starter ideas:
acetate, cellophane, jars, dew drops, text bubble stick-ons (weren't they called "page pebbles"?), clear die cuts, clear embossing, cracked glass, images of glass pitchers, drinking glasses, eyeglasses ... ... and I'm sure we'll see even more "Clearly Clever" ideas!

HYCCT1221 I'm Pulling For You
 
For today's Clearly Hopeful Challenge, I used SU's Boatloads of Love for boat images and message- and added an embossed background, using Cuttlebug's Divine Swirls EF. I added yellow see through gel buttons over the portholes, and a sparkly white heart/ribbon combo. Here's I'm Pulling For You

JBgreendawn 10-21-2012 11:30 AM

Not sure if this counts, you decide, sweet Bev.

I cut windows in my card layer. Window = clear, right? I also used clear stamps.

I am including a thumbnail of my butterfly because from the photo you can't really tell that it has been stamped on acetate. I couldn't get a better photo....I tried about 30 times and no luck! Cheapy camera. :)

Here is Clear Hope

Thanks for the fun challenge! I have wanted to try stamping on acetate but haven't taken the time to try it before today!

We're tickled that you gave this a try for the HYCCT challenges! I love your creation, and hope that you'll be encouraged to add acetate to your stampy repertoire more often!
