Cards for Heroes Creations

Here are some of the cards I made for the Cards For Heroes event I hosted recently! I made 6 of each card, kept one as an example, and sent five off for our troops. I really had to hold myself back from adding anything glittery or sparkley, but I did. (Troops cannot have glitter on their cards, cause it is visible through night vision appliances if it brushed off, on their uniforms. )
I also made up card kits for some of the ladies who participated, that were new to card making, or just didn't have enough supplies of their own. I will post some of the card kit cards tomorrow!

For this card, I used some My Mind's Eye patterned paper, a Cuttlebug embossing folder, and SU! Fishy Friends stamp set.Photobucket

For this card, I used BG patterned paper, a CB embossing folder, and a MAMBI stick kid stamp!
Sentiment is SU! I did some boyish and some girlish ones. I love them! Photobucket
All images were colored in using Primacolor pencils and odorless mineral spirits.

Have a Blessed Day!

Oooh, great cards. My favorite is the fishy one! I might even have that set, is there a jellyfish in it? Now I have to play with it. :)

Yes, Geri-there is a jellyfish in that set! I got the Patterned paper at Michael's-do you have those stores up there?

Love them! Ecspecially the dry embossing on the patterned paper! Great job organizing this event!

So many terrific cards for a great cause (which I also support). I have the boy image but I didn't even know MAMBI made a similar girl image. I'll have to look for that!
