OWH Birthday Bash - Hero Arts
Welcome to another fun and exciting skip to celebrate Operation Write Home's birthday month! If you arrived here from the amazing Lisa Spangler's blog, you are on the right track. If you'd like to start at the beginning of the skip or if you get lost along the way, click HERE.
Today we are skipping with Hero Arts images. Hero Arts has quite a few stamps sets that have been designed for especially for us OWH'ers - you can find them HERE. They generously donate 25% of their profits from the sale of these stamp sets to Operation Write Home, so now you have a license to shop - like you needed my permission, right?!
But before you run off to shop, take a look at the card I made using the Epic Love set. I used the arrow and one of the sentiments to make a VERY bold statement using an incredibly simple layout. I added a little bling but didn't go over the top so that a guy might be attracted to choose the card even though there are flowers on it. I thought the colors were more in the "guy" palette, too. No pinks on this card! I was tempted to add some ribbon at the top of the card but didn't have any that matched...I was on the hunt for the dark blue but didn't have any. I hate when that happens!
patterned paper: Authentique - Genuine
cardstock: SU Midnight Muse and So Saffron
bling: Queen & Co.
punch: We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper - stub
So, there is my simple card with a BOLD message! Your next stop on the skip is SAMANTHA'S BLOG. Have fun and find lots of inspiration along the way to make cards for our heroes to send home!
