Lasting Hearts Card Drive

Hello there! Today I have a few cards to share that I made for the Lasting Hearts Card Drive. This is a wonderful opportunity to put your talents to a much greater good and to extend love to those that are heartbroken over the loss of losing a precious child. You can read more about it over on Jennifer McGuire’s blog.Lasting Hearts Card DriveMy first card uses the Bouquet of Flowers stencil by Simon Says Stamp. I used my mini ink blenders and some post-it tape for masking to blend in Rosie Cheeks, Lemon Chiffon, Maliblue, Melon, Catkin and High Dive ink.

SSS-Leaves StencilThe sentiment is a mixture of the Big U Words and More Tag Words stamp sets. I added a couple of smooth gemstones by Hero Arts to the sides of the “you” and mounted the panel onto a Smoke card base.
