Operation Write Home Blog Skip with Hero Arts

Operation Write Home is an organization that collects cards for our soldiers to send home to family. I admire them greatly, so I am honored to be a part of their birthday “blog skip” (a small hop) today.

I have two cards – both using the OWH stamps from Hero Arts. (A portion of the profits of these stamps go back to support OWH.)

I stamped all the people with Wet Cement Ink… except the one I inked with Tide Pool using a bit of masking. I colored in the heart with a red marker. The hearts are punched from my favorite heart border punch and added with foam dots.

This next one is a super quick one. I did the little inked dots around the stamping (from THIS great set) with a new pencil eraser I stole from my son and some Neon Inks. (Shhhh.) Worked perfectly…

I hope you will consider making cards for Operation Write Home. The guidelines are simple – so easy!

Memorial Day OWH Blog Hop + Giveaway!

I, like many of you in the US, am excited about the fact that I have a three day weekend with my family. But MUCH more importantly, Memorial Day is about remembering those who lost their lives while serving our country… and praying for their families who have sacrificed so much. I know I am thankful and have great admiration for our country’s heroes.

Soooooo… I am honored to once again be part of the Operation Write Home Memorial Day Blog Hop. (Operation Write Home collects cards for soldiers to send home to their loved ones. You can find more info HERE.) To see the MANY people playing along today in honor of our heroes, head HERE.

Here is my card. Perfect for a hero or any man in your life…

OWH has a bunch of fun sketches they share, and I used THIS one. I also used the June Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp. It has a masculine feel to it… perfect for OWH cards!

I used a variety of Hero Arts Shadow Inks, too. (Supplies are listed in the thumbnails below.)

Easy peasy!

Here is a closer look at the kit I used. You can also get the stamp set separately…
