Standing Tall with 2 More Cards for the Hug a Heart Card Drive

Hello Blogging Buddies,

I am here today with 2 cards using a new stamp that I got just for the Hug a Heart Card Drive!!  We are more then half way there, but there is still time to join the Hug a Heart Card Drive!!

If you would like to learn more about the Hug a Heart Card Drive you can read all about it here.  The purpose of this card drive is to bring heartwarming messages to the heart patients during February's American Heart month.

Here are my cards:


Sending a hug stamp
Assorted papers from my stash
CM Corner Rounder
Victorian Velvet distress ink
Faded Jeans distress ink
Copic markers


Copic markers
Black ink
Faded Jeans distress ink
Assorted paper from my stash

For both of these cards I started with white card stock for the base of the card.  I took printed paper inked the edges and added that to the base of the card.  I took black ink and stamped the Sweet & Sassy Standing Tall stamps and stamped them onto white watercolor paper and colored them with Copic markers.  I cut them out with my paper trimmer, inked the edges and attached that to another piece of paper, inked the edges and then added that to the cards.

I do hope you will join me in making some cards and by sharing the message!  There is still plenty of time!  The cards have to make it to Christina by 2/14/17!

Please help share with others about this Hug a Heart Card Drive and brighten a heart patient's day this February's Heart Month by displaying the Hug a Heart Banner below on your blogs sidebar as well as on social media!  Please use hashtag #hugaheartcarddrive when sharing on social media.
