Cards for Heroes Blog Hop


Welcome to the Cards for Heroes Memorial Day Blog Hop! If you're just starting out on my blog, welcome, I'm glad you stopped by, I'm thrilled to be participating in such a wonderful Blog Hop. Did you know that 140,875 cards have been sent to our troops so far, with the help of Cards for Heroes. Information on donating cards can be found here.


I created a Red, White and Blue card to honor our She-roes. (Click to enlarge) These beautiful images are from the Artistic Outpost She-roes and Heroes Plates. For a limited time these two plates are specially bundled at $19.20, and if you use code LS-10OFF you can save 10% on all your purchases at Artistic Outpost.

To create the background for my card, I used the Bingo Blast Technique from the TJNL on Watercolor Paper, using Adirondack Paint Daubers in Red Pepper and Denim. I stamped a portion of the Flag from the Artistic Outpost Hero Plate on Brilliant Blue card stock. The She-roe from the She-roes Plate is stamped in Black Archival on Watercolor paper and colored with Distress Inks.




Details:
Stamps - Artistic Outpost Heroes, She-roes
Ink - Black Archival, Distress Inks - Rose, Faded Jeans, Stampin' Up! Chocolate Chip
Card Stock - Watercolor, Red, Brilliant Blue, Black
Other - Adirondack Paint Dauber Red Pepper, Denim, Aquapainter, Spritz Bottle, Sponge Dauber
