Hero Arts | Lasting Hearts Blog Hop

Hello all and thank you for joining us today for the Lasing Hearts Blog Hop hosted by Hero Arts. You can read more about Lasting Hearts and how YOU can support this amazing cause below.

Hero Arts | Lasting Hearts Blog Hop

I decided to keep my card simple. I started by blending Distress Wild Honey and Mustard Seed inks onto Tim Holtz watercolor paper and adding droplets of water. Next I stamped Sending Hugs and So Sorry sentiment in black ink from the So Sorry Stamp & Cut set from Hero Arts. Hero Arts is donating 25% of the profits from this and a few other stamps to support the Lasting Hearts efforts, in cooperation with Angela Miller, the author of “You Are The Mother of All Mothers.

I also stamped and die cut a number of flowers and leaves from the You’re So Lovely set. I used Dandelion Hybrid ink, Ultra Pink and Strawberry Hybrid for the flowers and Green Apply and Moss Hybrid inks for the leaves.

I die cut a heart out of gold mirror cardstock using a die from the Stamp & Cut set from Hero Arts and foam mounted it over the floral cluster. Lastly, I added glossy accents over the yellow, pink and strawberry berries.

The inside of the card was also hand-stamped with a powerful You Have Withing You a Sacred Strength message.
