Simon Says Stamp | Have Faith

Simon Says Stamp | Have Faith

Hello, friends. We are safe. Because we are spending so much time in our shelter now, I’ve brought a few more things from home to make it more comfortable. We hung a mirror and added some hooks for our coats. Small things, but they make a difference. If we’ll be forced to spend so much time here I might even set up a crafting table. We will see.

My today’s card is once again one full of encouragement. I used yellow and blue, the colors of the Ukrainian flag, as a color palette for this card.

CARD DETAILS

I first ink blended a large sun using Simon’s Sunbeam ink color. You can use any circle stencil for this, I used the circle from the Scene Builder. Next, I used another stencil, sadly it has been discontinued, and I don’t remember the name, it was also from Simon to ink blend the sea. I used Seafoam, Surf, and Ocean.

Next, I stamped a big bold “Have Faith” in Versafine Onyx Black. I also added black pre-printed strips with sub-sentiments, I cut these from the Well Wishes set.

I cut the panel to 3 3/4 x 5″ and foam mounted onto an A2 card base. I also embellished the card with silver gems.

I look at this and it brings me hope and sends me strength. I find cardmaking to be such a therapeutic process, especially now. It is my medicine for the soul.

Thank you all! I appreciate your kind words, your support, your prayers, your donations, everything. No deed is too small. Together we will win this war.

    1. What a beautiful card and a heartfelt sentiment that I would send to you. I can’t even imagine what you are going through. Stay safe, stay strong and I hope and pray that this will all be over with before much longer. Putin is a monster.

      1. Beautiful card. Keeping you and your husband in my thoughts and prayers.

    1. What a perfect sentiment! One all of us should holt true to our heart! This week, along with praying for you and your family’s safety, I am praying fervently that the hearts of the russian soldiers be softened towards the Ukrainian people. I’m praying that they might be enlightened to the criminal acts that they are committing. I’ve seen some YouTube footage of the capture of russian soldiers who said they were lied to by their government. They basically climbed out of their tanks and surrendered so I think my prayers are being heard by those who’s hearts are open to it. Much love Yana♥️❤️. Stay safe my crafty friend

    1. Beautiful card and I love the colours! I hope you are able to bring a crafting table in…Has Oles been tempted to make a card?☺ (Every morning my husband asks…’Are they okay!?’♥) With much prayer for you and yours…♥

    1. Such a beautiful, impactful card, Yana. I am so glad you aren’t forgetting to take time amidst the chaos for self-care. Yes, those little things that make “not home” feel a little more like home are important. I’m so proud of what you and Oles are doing each day to help save your country from the Putin scourge. May this nightmare end sooner, rather than later. Prayers help, and you and all Ukrainians are on the prayer list of so many around the world. Hugs.

    1. I live in Florida and have a small garden – planted with yellow and blue flowers to honor the resilience, bravery, and commitment that Ukrainians have for their country. I think of you all every single day and pray for you and all the people that have been affected. I see strength and admire you all so much – when I see the beautiful cards of yellow and blue, I can’t help but copy that in my garden. Thank you for the super example you are to so many others, still keeping busy, still keeping hope as your guiding light, still keeping the faith. I pray for peace to come to your country with determination to rebuild and to encourage all of your citizens! Thank you for your example, beautiful creativity, and gentle nature. I will go water my plants and think of you.

      1. Fantastic card design, a very heartfelt message that we are all sending to you, your family & all Ukrainians caught up in this aweful war. We wish that all our countries leaders would do more to assist you all & quickly. Our hearts are with you all day & night, hugs xxx

    1. Hi, lovely soul –
      I adore this card. I like it even better than the similar one from earlier this week w/ corals, oranges, peaches, etc. I agree that it’s a pity that the stencil was discontinued. Oh, well… there are other similar ones. Your choice of sentiments is spot-on. Praying many times / day. Love the comments others have shared. I echo their sentiments.
      Big bear hugs to you all –
      Lori S in PA

    1. Gorgeous sentiment. I think you have said everything we are all saying to you, even though you can’t hear us. Stay safe. Hugs Angie

    1. Such a beautiful card and beautiful sentiments. ☀️ It just makes me smile because you are making the cards for yourself that we can’t send to you, but would if we could. I’m so happy you are able to do little things to make your shelter more like home. All those little additions will help! You are in my heart everyday as I send you strength, and love and hope! You and Oles are true everyday hero’s: Bringing needed supplies to your brave citizens, even food and toys to pets! Always remember how important your daily gifts are and what an important difference you are making! We love you, dear Yana! Sending so much strength and love!

    1. Gorgeous card, and love the sentiments! Stay strong and God be with you, your family and your country. I’m glad you are making the shelter a bit more homey, it will help a bit with your stress. We all continue to pray for you!

    1. This is so beautiful Yana … I’m so glad you’re continuing to be safe and continuing to look after your own mental health by crafting

    1. Beautiful Card, thank you for sharing it. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Take Care.

    1. Your upbeat personality and your perseverance, along with your courage – You inspire us all! I wish our President and government would step up and help out more. I’m so disheartened that they are not and feel such sadness for all your country is going through. We are all in this world together, yet your country is fighting to survive. We have put up a Ukrainian flag in our front yard stating we stand with you. It’s the leaders of countries that can start and stop wars. Your President is someone who has proved his worth. Wish we could say the same.

    1. You are in my prayers…Creativity is such a healing force. Chin up and keep creating ❤️
