My Hearts Pleasure

Be Strong

Good morning! Today I’m sharing my card for our new challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper. We have a fun Tic-Tac-Toe for you to play along with this week.

Here is the inspiration 


First I wanted to tell you what inspired my card.  This past weekend my stepson  had a pretty bad accident when he hit gravel while riding down the mountain on his bike. His knee looked like a jumbled pile of hamburger meat and road rash all over his body.  We spent  several hours in the ER and many stitches and through it all he never once complained or cried. I was pretty impressed as were the nurses and doctors. He is healing well. And so was my inspiration for my card


I was recently able to purchase the very sought after Hero Arts June card kit. Thank you Rubina!! For the Tic-Tac-Toe I choose the middle vertical row with die cut, embossing and black. I started with a Summer Sun card base and then added a layer of Basic Black. For the main layer I took a piece of Whisper White and my SU inks and sponged the background. Next I die cut the sun and sponged with Yellow and Blue and glued down to the background. I them stamped the Giraffes with versamark and embossed with black powder.  To finish I die cut the tree with black cardstock and added using dimensionals and stamped the sentiment with Stazon. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today

Until next time 

Happy Crafting 🙂
