You Are My Anchor

You Are My Anchor

Hi everyone!   Happy Wednesday 🙂  I have some inspiration for Heartfelt Creations for you.  Today we are lucky to be featuring the new Everyday Heroes Paper Collection. I love the gorgeous color palette in this collection and one of my first thoughts when I saw it was it would be great for all of those masculine cards and upcoming Father’s Day projects we will be creating.  So with that in mind, my project today is a vest card with a fishing theme which I thought would work well for all of those fishermen in our lives!


and here is a closer look


and the inside


Products Used:

HCPC-3662 My Anchor Cling Stamp Set
HCPC-3666 Everyday Hero Cling Stamp Set
HCPC-3667 You Inspire Me Cling Stamp Set
HCD1-761 Everyday Hero Die
HCDP1  253 – Everyday Heroes Paper Collection
Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit
Art Institute Glue – Dries Clear Glue
Spellbinders Tool N’ One
Memento Dye Ink Pad – Teal Zeal

Project Instructions:

Other products:  Off-White Card Stock, Kraft Basic Card Stock, White Super Fine Embossing Powder, StazOn Ganache Ink, Frantage Cinnamon and Teal Micro Glitter, Black Soot Distressed Ink, Quickie Glue Pen, Standard Circles Small, Versamark Stamp Pad, Bling and die cutting machine.


Start by cutting the pieces out of Off-White Cardstock using this template as well as the matching pieces out of paper from the Everyday Heroes Paper Collection.  The inside was created by taking the My Anchor Cling Stamp Set, stamping it using Versamark and heat embossed using White Super Fine Embossing Powder.  Distress the edges of all your pieces using Black Soot Distressed Ink and layer together finishing the front with a combination of the Everyday Hero and You Inspire Me stamp sets from this collection as well as the coordinating Everyday Hero Die.  StazOn Ganache Ink was used to stamp the sentiments on the front and a Quickie Glue Pen combined with Frantage Cinnamon and Teal Micro Glitter were used to dress the sentiments up.

And there you have it, a fun card for that special Everyday Hero in your life!

Have a wonderful day my crafty friends!
