Many of us are feeling helpless during this whole Covid19 thing… watching as doctors and nurses, EMTs and lab workers are putting themselves in harms way, hour by hour, day by day. As Jennifer McGuire says, card making is our superpower and I am some of my friends are putting ours to good use! Earlier today, Jan of Jan’s Digi Stamps released a free stamp set specifically for health care workers. It is called Angel of Mercy and the image is modeled after Jan’s own daughter, an ICU nurse in a major epicenter of cases. Pop over to Jan’s site and use promo code ANGEL to get this set of images and sentiments for free, and then start busting out cards for the staff at your local hospital, caregivers at nursing homes, and other front line health workers!
I used one of the pre-colored images for my card. I printed it once on my card base and again on copy paper to cut a mask of the image. Then I used Distress Oxide inks and a blender brush to ink blend through a stencil from My Favorite Things called Radiating Rays. Then using another MFT stencil, Clouds, I ink blended up from the bottom to “ground” my image. This is an easy card to make multiples of, so I’m heading back into the craft room to bust out a bunch more!!! Go get your free image set and make some cards for your local heroes! Be sure to share the link far and wide so other crafters have the image to use in their hero cards too. And if you don’t mind, pop over to the Jan’s Digi Stamp Facebook page to show Jan what you made and tell her who you are sending it to. Thank you kindly!
