Operation Write Home Spring Training Blog Hop & a Giveaway!

Welcome to the Operation Write Home Blog Hop!  You might have arrived from Jennifer McGuire’s blog.  For the start of the hop, please be sure to go HERE.  

Operation Write Home® (OWH) supports our nation’s armed forces by sending blank handmade greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them.
Simon’s co-founder, Jason, and also our teammate, Nick, are Army Veterans.  We salute these men and all of those men and women who serve or have served in our Armed Forces!
Did you know that Hero Arts donates 25% of profits from these clear sets to Operation Write Home?

My dear friend Kathy Racoosin from www.TheDailyMarker.blogspot.com created this card below in honor of today’s event and our heroes.  Thank you Kathy! (Be sure to check out Kathy’s Blog!  It’s soooo worth the visit!)

First she die cut stars and Squares using the Stars Border die and the Tri Square dies.  Can you see how she used the woodgrain textured paper as the base?


Then Kathy added color to the white 120# cardstock using her B16 and her R29 Copic Markers.

Then she colored in the Eagle from Paper Smooches “Circle of Honor” stamp set.

I love how she used the House Die from our Simon Says Stamp “Where the Heart Is” set combined with the stamps from our new “Fit to Be Square” set.

Don’t you love Kathy’s beautiful completed card!?



I have been playing (working ;)  with the brand new Tim Holtz Distress Metallic paints and loving Tim’s new Idea-ology Rub ons!  I can’t even begin to tell you how much fun it was for me to make the below card honoring our Heroes!   I am a little nervous to post my personal work on the blog because I am hyper self conscious of my own art, BUT I have a lot of fun creating and needed to share the really really COOLNESS of these products with you!  AWESOME!  Trust me, the photo doesn’t even do justice to how METALLIC these paints actually look!

Supplies on the Distress Card:
