To Love Somebody....

Happy Friday, my crafty peeps!!  I was completely captivated by this image from Technique Junkies the very minute it hit the store.  A very good friend of mine loves to make hand hearts and so I just knew I had to own it!  Today, I'm sharing just a couple of my favorite projects using it.

The first is a card that also features the Palettini background, Le Tour Eiffel, from Technique Junkies, also.  I used the Non Stick Color tutorial from the TJNL, June 2011 to add color to the background piece.  After adding the Love Hands image and a sentiment, this easy card was all done!

Using a similar color application, I created the smaller cards, also.  They are roughly the size of a business card and that is how I used them.  Once dry, I added the Love Hands and then an encouraging sentiment.  I own the Empowered Words set from Unity Stamps and use it all the time!  I work with kids who struggle in school and with mental health issues--my first round of these cards, I handed out to encourage some of the kids.  It's probably time to make some more.  We all need a little reminder from time to time-y'know?  Some more than others......

What will you do to encourage today?

Be Awesome!  Jane


  1. How did you get that to stamp so black? Wish this was a die!

    1. Ranger Archival Ink---nice and juicy pad. I wish I could Copic with it because it is the blackest ink I've ever found!
