OWH Memorial Day Blog Hop!



Hello friends! Welcome to my stop on this years ginormous OWH Memorial Day Blog Hop! Aren’t you loving all the beautiful red white and blue today?

I know there is a lot to see so I’m keeping my post short and simple.  I used OWH Sketch #175 to create this card!  I think this is a great one for small patterned paper scraps.  That’s what I used here, along with a patriotic heart sticker that has been in my stash forever.  I layered it up with some nice cardstock and stamped a sentiment from the Hero Arts OWH fundraiser set Year Round Sentiments.


I hope you’ve enjoyed my stop on the hop, and I can’t wait to visit all the other stops!  Click here to go back to the main hop page!

    This is one of my favorite sketches and you did a wonderful job with it. I like how you placed the heart in the middle and stamped the HA sentiment in red.

    Your card is really beautiful and elegant. I love the white band layered in navy, and the spare use of red in the stripes and sentiment, is really pleasing to the eye. Thank you for sharing this beauty of a card, for participating in this bloghop, and for your support of OWH & our heroes.

    What a great CAS card! Love those pops of red and white in the patterned papers surrounded by the dark blue. I’d be scared to use that much white on my card, but you pulled it off wonderfully. Thanks for supporting OWH!

    Your card is just lovely, so crisp and clean. I love the heart with the little bling on it. Thanks for supporting OWH.

  30. Margot May 26, 2014 at 9:27 AM

    I love this card!!! It is SO clean! You’re right-this is a good way for small scraps.

    I suspected something and had to go look up the sketch…it was true. That wide band in the middle in the sketch-I really like what you did…it reads as two thin bands. Terrific idea that I am going to use!

    Thank you for making and sharing!

  31. Carol Hartmann May 26, 2014 at 10:47 AM

    Hi Julie: I love that your card is clean and simple yet bold and striking because of the red striped paper. Love the bling on the heart, too!
