United We Craft Blog Party

Hello there, crafty friends! I’m so happy to be a part of THIS United We Craft Blog Party. The goal of this blog party is to unite us all during this time, inspire, and bring joy. I wanted to create some encouragement cards for the occasion…

I started by stamping the solid line in THIS stamp using a rainbow of dye inks. For the first card, I stamped them in vertical lines to create the background…

I stamped the rainbow image from the same stamp set and colored it in with Copic Markers and THIS for some sparkle. I stamped the heart from the stamp set under the rainbow and added some of THIS on top for some shine. I stamped THIS sentiment underneath and die-cut the piece using THIS circle die. I also die-cut a larger circle from the same die set from black card stock to use as a mat.

For the next card, I once again stamped the same solid line from THIS stamp set, but created a plaid pattern by stamping the lines vertically and horizontally…

I stamped and colored the heart from the same stamp set and stamped a sentiment from THIS stamp set. I added a black mat around the square and added THIS behind the piece for some dimension.

Here’s a closer look at each card…

I hope this inspires you to join our party. Use #sssunitedwecraft on social media to allow us to see the happiness that our craft is bringing the world.
