#spreadjoynotgerms Blog Hop

Hello all of my crafty friends and thanks for hopping along in the #spreadjoynotgerms Blog Hop!  If I'm your first stop in the hop or you're lost, you can head to the Catherine Pooler Blog or the Hedgehog Hollow for details.

I made a couple of cards for today, because I wanted to show off my love for both Brutus Monroe and Heffy Doodle. . .both extremely generous companies!  So let's take a look at what I made. . .

This first card uses the Butterfly Sentiments 2.0 stamp along with the Sunrise Simple Blend stencil.  I paired these up with my Catherine Pooler inks as well.


My next card uses the Quill You Be Mine? stamp and dies along with the Catherine Pooler inks and the GeoCurves Background Builder stamp.


 And here are both cards. . .both ready to spread some joy and lift some spirits during this rough time that the whole world seems to be dealing with.


I also have a process video of how I made both of these cards, if you would like to see exactly how these came together.

  8. Hi. I like the butterfly cards and the black details. I'm trying to spread some joy as I asked on my community FB group if anyone needed a card for someone but couldn't make it to the shop to buy it. I had 3 requests and hand delivered them. I've sent cards to family and friends as well. Take care, Wendy (in London) xx

  104. Oh wow! I love those geo shapes on the hedgehog card. Thanks for sharing!

    I am spreading joy by sending handmade cards to healthcare professionals, children, and older adults who I feel need a boost - I have made nearly 100 cards so far. I don't sew so I figured I couldn't make masks like so many people are doing. However, I had the opportunity to even pull my sewing machine out and figure out how to make them anyway. It was actually pretty easy and was a satisfying experience.

    ReplyDelete
  105. What great cards! The hedgehog is so cute.
    I want to make cards to send out to family and friends but I'm making mask for them first, this gives me joy during this time to help them out.
    Thanks for sharing your cards!
