Simon Says Stamp | Simplistic Good Luck Card + Ways to Help

Good morning, friends. You might find it odd to see a blog post from me during these times. Cardmaking has always been my therapy and even more so now. It keeps my mind occupied with non-war thoughts. I haven’t been able to create anything since the war started, but I still have a few cards I made before the war and I’d like to share them.

If you want to help me and the people locally in my community, you can use my affiliate links when purchasing something crafty for yourself. Oles and I trying to help locally as best we can, purchasing and donating supplies for the local defense teams. If you are not in a place to help financially, you can help by spreading the word about what is happening in Ukraine.

Simon Says Stamp | Simplistic Good Luck Card + Ways to Help

This card has a fun story behind it – it was actually Oles’ idea. We were in my craft room, joking and having fun, and playing with the new supplies (he likes to join me in my craft room sometimes), he suggested using one of the pre-printed sentiment cards from Simon’s Reverse Lucky set and coloring each line using a pale color marker to create a rainbow (I thought it was a mad idea, but I tried it anyway and I loved the result).

I trimmed the colored panel to cut the white edges off and foam mounted onto an A2 card base. I also added a few green gems and called this card done.

Simon Says Stamp has many different pre-printed sentiment sets similar to what I used for this card, covering a wide variety of occasions. All you do is take a sheet and color it. Simple and easy and you have a unique card.

    1. Yana-
      Great card Oles came up with. Glad you are safe for now. I’m thinking of you, Oles, your Mom, friends & fellow countrymen. I am spreading the word. My 16 year old has been made aware of this. He’s now discussing this with me, his schoolmates & his older siblings . Many Hugs.

    1. My heart hurts for you, your family and homeland. Godspeed

      1. Dear Yana. I have no words. But I could go without a crafty purchase and send the money to you instead. Do you have a PayPal account and would it make sense so far? Best wishes. Jeannette.

        1. Hello Yana, I’d like to give to you directly if that’s possible. Please let me know how. Thank you.

            1. Thanks Yana. PayPal is easy. Sent you a small amount. Hope it helps!

            1. Hi Yana: I sent you some money on Paypal. Praying for your safety. God bless you and all those brave individuals fighting for justice!

          1. I would also like to donate directly to you through PayPal. Please let me know too. Love Oles’ card. High-five for helpful and creative husbands. And continued prayers for you, your family and your country.

    1. I know lots of your friends & followers are thinking of you & Oles & the rest of your family and are sending you lots of love & hugs & thoughts & prayers. We love you and want this war to be stopped.

    1. There really are no words to tell you how sorry I am that you are going through this. I can’t imagine. Please know that many people support you all. Sending lots of prayers and hugs every day! It’s a little thing but I will happily use your affiliate links for anything I purchase.

    1. I will be using your affiliate links to support you. Be safe and know people all over the world are praying for you and your country

    1. Hi, Yana – Am praying for you and all Ukrainians many times every day and night. I love the card. Big visual impact and not much work. Big hugs to you and your family.

    1. Thank so much for keeping us updated. I continue to pray for you, your family, your president and your country.

    1. Such a beautiful card! I am praying for the safety of you, your family, friends, and your country.

    1. I am so glad to hear from you, your and your country are heavy on my heart right now. I can’t imagine what you are going through, and I am beyond sorry. Sending much love and prayers to all of you.

    1. I have been thinking about you, hoping you were safe so seeing this post made me so happy! I am praying for you, your family and everyone in the Ukraine. Please be careful!

    1. So happy to see this post, the card is lovely and a wonderful idea. I have no words to express how deeply sorry I am that you, your family, your countrymen and President are being subjected to this tyranny, I know Canadians will do all we can to help.

    1. I have always enjoyed your beautiful cards. I hope to continue to learn from you as long as I am able to create. I am praying for you and your country and will continue to do so.

    1. Thank you, Yana, for sharing this information. I am not able to donate financially at this time or buy crafts, but I have been spreading the word, the information you provide and, of course, praying for you and for the people of Ukraine. Please do know that so much of the world is standing behind the people of Ukraine and pushing for the withdrawal of the Russians. Glory and honor to Ukraine. Sending hugs and love to you. Please do let us know what else you might need. I would be happy to do what I can and at the very least pass on the information.

    1. I hope you are managing to stay safe and that your family are safe too. I fear the worst is yet to come. My heart goes out to all of the people in Ukraine. I have so much respect now for your president. Unlike other leaders, he has not left the country, but is staying to fight knowing that he must be #1 target for Putin. I pray every night that the Russian army is defeated, that Kiev has not fallen and that Ukranian casualties are few. Stay safe pretty lady. I will donate to your personal Paypal account.

    1. Hi Yana – Thank you for posting this. I will absolutely be purchasing through your affiliated links and already have a list of items in my cart at SSS.
