Hello and welcome to the Hero Arts Lasting Hearts blog hop. You should have arrived here by way of sweet & talented Amy Tsuruta's blog. If you didn't, head on back to the Hero Arts blog to begin at the very beginning.
We're hopping today to tell you about three new products from Hero Arts, in support of Lasting Hearts. My friend and coworker Kimberly started this non-profit organization to assist mothers as they are going through unimaginable pain - the loss of a pregnancy. You can read Kimberly's heartbreaking story here. I am so amazed by her strength and her compassion to turn her own heartache into a cause to help so many other grieving mothers.
Hero Arts has three new products, with 25% of sales going to Lasting Hearts. The money will be used to provide the book "You Are The Mother of All Mothers" by Angela Miller to OB/GYN offices, to give to women who have suffered loss.
For my first card, I used stamps from the So Sorry Stamp & Cut set, stamped in Crimson hybrid ink. The background is watercolored, and it's nice and flat for mailing.
This next card uses the same So Sorry Stamp & Cut set. This time I created a heart stencil by die cutting with one of the dies. Then I sponged on Pool, Aquatic and Summer Sky ink. It needed a little extra something, so I took a black pen and doodled on the heart outlines.
I made these cards single-layer so I can easily mail them. Not only can you donate to purchase books for Lasting Hearts, but they are also collecting handmade cards to include with the donated books. Send cards with unsealed envelopes to:
Lasting Hearts Card Drive
2892 N Bellflower Blvd Ste 216
Long Beach, CA 90815
And now, let's get on with the hop! Next up is Yana Smakula, who I have no doubt has created something beautiful! The entire hop list is below - be sure to visit everyone and leave comments, Hero Arts is hosting a giveaway that will be drawn from all of the comments on all of the blogs!
