You should be arriving here from the always incredible, amazingly talented and oh so fun...
We’re so excited to be partnering this summer with Operation Write Home - they are a nonprofit that sends beautiful handmade cards to our service members so that they can write home to their families. Isn’t that just the best? There’s no Hallmark store in the desert, so this is a pretty important gift we can give them as crafters!
Our “In My heart” set was inspired by the mission of OWH; we know that many of those serving overseas have little kiddos at home that they write to. So we designed cute little kids and sentiments to express just how much those little folks are missed! The drawings are done in such a way that they can be adapted to different ethnicities too, making this a really flexible set. We’ll be donating 20% of the proceeds of the stamp sets sold on our retail site from now until July 31st - we really want to help them fundraise for all their efforts!
I combined the large greeting "hugs" from the ME Big Words Stamp Set with the "i love you" sentiment from ME In My Heart for my card share today. The sweet little girl from In My Heart sitting with her head in her hands is perched atop the large greeting where I also added some stamped and colored grass and a snail. I colored in the images with Copic Markers (all colors are individually listed and linked in the supplies list below).
I used both the ME Winter Ink and ME Ocean Ink for the word "hugs" utilizing the Rock 'n Roll Technique. *** Interested in learning more and seeing more Mama Elephant stamped examples using this technique? Check out Kryssi and I's True Stamp Class HERE.***
I finished the inside of the card with additional stamping from the ME In My Heart stamp set.
We also know you’ll want to join in on the mission to serve the troops - be sure you visit the OWH website and read all the guidelines carefully….you’ll learn about why glitter is dangerous to send, so leave the stickles behind when making cards for heroes! Lots more information is available on their Welcome page - tons of questions are answered there! And they have a fun YouTube show each weekday with project info, tutorials, and more - check it out HERE.
