Hi, today I'm participating in a blog hop to support a beautiful cause, Lasting Hearts, started by Kimberly Saldana, the Hero Arts Director of Sales. Lasting Hearts is here to help comfort parents, mothers in particular, who have lost a piece of their heart.
For more details on this drive, see the end of the post.
For my cards today, I'm using a stamp set by Hero Arts, designed specifically for this cause. There are two others, and Hero Arts is donating 25% of the profits from these stamps to support the Lasting Hearts efforts, in cooperation with Angela Miller, the author of “You Are The Mother of All Mothers.”
The stamp set I'm using is So Sorry Stamp and Cut. This is beautiful little set that makes creating these difficult cards a little easier.
For this first card, I created my wreath by masking off a circle, and then stamping a lot of tiny little branches from the Spring Hello by Lia in Mint Julep.
For a slightly easier second card, I just stamped the Heart Vine in Soft Pink. On both cards, I used a die to add the little dots, but you can always use a sewing machine without thread for a similar look.
Now for more details on Lasting Hearts;

This is really such a beautiful cause - I know several people who have suffered from such a loss, and to have something like this to let you know you are there for them and support them? Just beautiful.
