Lasting Hearts Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to my stop on the Lasting Hearts Blog Hop! If you have arrived from the Hero Arts Blog, you're in the right place. If you haven't been to the Hero Arts Blog yet, I highly encourage you to go there and read all the great information about this cause and ways that you can support it through the wonderful hobby of cardmaking.

Lasting Hearts was started by Kimberly SaldaƱa, the Director of Sales at Hero Arts. Hero Arts has created three stamps exclusively for Lasting Hearts and are donating 25% of the profits from these stamps to support the Lasting Hearts efforts, in cooperation with Angela Miller, the author of “You Are The Mother of All Mothers.”

So today I have created three cards using the Mother of all Mothers stamp along with one of the heart dies from the So Sorry Stamp + Cut.

I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to create a gradient of color on a strip of watercolor paper and then die cut six hearts. Then I stitched the hearts down the side of a white panel using gold thread.

To go along with the gold thread, I gold heat embossed this beautiful message.

I popped up the white panel on a colored card base so the hearts appear as they are floating off the edge of the panel. And then I finished off the cards with a scattering of Darice Crystal Sequins.

Be sure to visit all the stops on the hop and leave a comment! Hero Arts is giving away a special prize to three lucky commenters – Angela Miller’s “You Are the Mother of All Mothers” book, as well as the So Sorry Stamp & Cut set. Please comment by Sunday, March 6 at 11:59pm PT, and they will announce the winners next week.

Your next stop on the hop is the amazing Sandy Allnock!

Thanks for stopping by!
