Send Uplifting Smiles Blog Hop!

Send Uplifting Smiles Blog Hop!

Today the Newton's Nook Designs and Inky Paws Challenge Team members are hopping along to Send Uplifting Smiles! Our goal today is to help brighten your day with uplifting and encouraging cards that will make you smile! We know that many of you are under stay home orders to help fight the spread of the Coronavirus and during this time of social distancing it's more important than ever to keep in touch with family and friends and we encourage you to spend some time creating and sending cards to those who matter to you! Check out all the stops in this hop to get inspired on ways you can send uplifting smiles!  

Make sure you scroll down to the bottom of this post to see the whole list and hop along and comment on all the blogs hopping along today for a chance to win a store credit to our shop too!

For my stop on the hop today,  I created an uplifting card using our Holding Happiness Stamp Set.

The girl with the giant bouquet of balloons makes me smile every time I create with it so I thought it would be great for an uplifting card! I colored the image using copic markers and then used a white gel pen to give little highlight accents to the balloons. The image was cut out using the coordinating Holding Happiness Die Set to add onto the card. 

For the card, I created a scene by adding a hill and some grass using our Hills & Grass Stencil. This stencil has borders on both sides so it makes it easy to create a scene like this. Then I used our Sky Borders Die Set to cut out the cloud border along the top, layering it over a strip of blue paper. The final touch was the "You lift me up" sentiment, stamped from our Uplifting Wishes Stamp Set. This set has the perfect sentiments in it for sending smiles!
