Hello and welcome to SugarPea Designs Caring Hearts Special Release. I am so excited to join this list of FABULOUS ladies for this special hop in celebration of the upcoming 7th annual Caring Hearts Card Drive.
Vera (the mastermind behind the card drive) and Jennifer McGuire along with their team of volunteers will be collecting handmade holiday cards for the elderly that live in nursing homes from October 1 to November 25. Vera will have all of the card drive details up on her blog on Saturday, Oct. 1, 2016.
SugarPea Designs will be donating 20% of all proceeds from the sale of Caring Hearts stamp sets & dies to the Alzheimers Association.
My first card uses my favorite sets from this special release: Kindess and Caring Hearts. Each stamp set has a coordinating die but I've combined these 2 sets here. I've stamped many of the envelope groupings and then Copic colored them all in. Tedious but well worth it! My "Kindness" die cut was cut multiple times and layered for dimension.
My next card uses the other DARLING set called Caring Critters. I used the red gingham paper from Countryside Charm papers along with the Heart Journal Card Sugar Cuts. My stitched hearts were diecut into a white panel and then added with foam adhesive for a window look. The cute dog was Copic colored, die cut, and added with foam adhesive.
Now.....let's get to the hop!
Here's the list of all the fabulous guests helping to celebrate the Caring Hearts Special Release:
- SugarPea Designs is giving away the entire Caring Hearts release (3 stamp sets & 3 SugarCuts dies) to one lucky commenter. Readers have until October 7th to comment.
- Vera will randomly select from comments left on hop participants to give away a $25 GC to the SugarPea Designs Store.
- SugarPea Designs will announce the release winner on their blog on Sunday, October 9th
