Operation Write Home Memorial Day Blog Hop


Technique Tuesday here, and we're tickled to be joining the good folks from Operation Write Home today for their Memorial Day Blog Hop

Operation Write Home is a non-profit organization that supports the U.S. Armed Forces by making blank greeting cards for the troops, which they can use to send notes to their loved ones. 

We admire the efforts of Operation Write Home so we've got three cards to share with you today.




Each of these cards were made with our brand new My Hero stamp set, which is on sale now. It begins shipping on June 9th. 


And here's a video from Bev with some tips on the stamping techniques we used on the three cards we're sharing.


Fun, huh?

Before we go, we have a special offer in honor of Operation Write Home.  Place an order through through the end of the day on Monday, May 26th, 2014. Use coupon code SHIP4HEROES and your order will ship for free. This coupon code is valid for US orders only.

Happy hopping!

Love the definition and dimension of the stars and frames.. Really makes the card a stand out.

Thanks so much for supporting the OWH Memorial Day blog hop. LOVE all three cards, but particularly the "Land That I Love"card--the use of frames and two sizes (and designs) of stars along with the gorgeous background is particularly appealing. I definitely will be ordering the new stamp set--perfect!!

Fantastic cards. I like how you used the set in so many ways. And, framing those stars that way in the first one was awesome!

I really like these, red white and blue is always so perfect for OWH cards. I like the way the HERO is down the front of the card, very stunning.

I like the repeating of the word, Hero, with the fading effects, then it hits again! Very nice! Also, like the stars that are against the frame.

Each of these cards is SUPER! Using stars, the picture frames, and these wonderful stamps with our RWB color combo is so attractive. Great idea to use them for retired veterans' cards!

Each card is wonderful! Love the stamps, the frames, the stars, and the generation stamping! Thanks for the inspiration!

Great cards! Love Technique Tuesday stamps! The stars with the Polaroid style frames is my fave!

Wonderful cards- anyone would love to give and/or receive. I really like the use of the photo frame on the top card with the stars - so creative!

Awesome stamp set and cards. I really like the detail in the sentiments and the way they can be inked in different colors to bring that out. Love Technique Tuesday stamps! Thanks for supporting OWH!

Love the background on the first card.
