Here’s a fun card I made using the new You’re My Hero, current Giving Tree Program set where a proceed of the sale of the stamp goes to CureSearch. This set was made in honor of Taylor’s neighbor Darrin who, at age 10 lost his battle with Cancer last Fall. The set is so awesome and you would be making a small yet great contribution to help Cancer research if you were to purchase it; you will have through the month of May to make a difference. The set is currently out of stock, but if you fill out this form you will be notified when it’s back in stock.
I used the fun yet messy technique called Joseph’s coat to make this card. You ink up your cardstock with a spectrum pad using a brayer, ink your images with versamark ink and heat emboss with clear powder, and then brayer your whole cardstock with black ink and it will resist on the stamped areas, causing the original ink colors to shine through.
PERSONAL UPDATE: I hope you enjoy your Spring Break, I wish I could say I have but I injured my lower back and I’ve been laid up since Wednesday evening. I missed work 2 days and school on Thursday evening and that bothers me. The pain is so excruciating it’s brought me to tears so many times. John stayed home from work to take care of me and get me to the Dr. today but I didn’t learn anything I didn’t already know – this is a re-injury of my lower back muscles which initially occurred Nov. ‘05 when I was rear-ended (smashed between 4 other cars). I felt good enough to sit up to right this post so I feel somewhat better but as soon as I take more meds I hope to be knocked out again.
