Hello.  Previously in my last post, I shared an in depth, step-by-step tutorial on how to color this beautiful large hydrangea wood mount stamp from Hero Arts with the Copic Sketch markers.

If you haven’t check out this hydrangea coloring tutorial, you definitely will want to because in this post I will be sharing how to create two Clean & Simple Thinking of You cards with this colored image.  So please do check out my last post before proceeding on with today’s cards tutorial.

ABOUT THE CARDS:  Both cards are made for teen heart patients at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, part of my year-round passion project, Cards for Little Hearts card drive.  If you would like to learn more about how you may participate in this heartwarming mission, please check out Cards for Little Hearts’ website.  Currently I am accepting general theme cards (for ages 1-college) that the staff can give out to patients during any time of the year.  Our next monthly delivery will be July 9th.  We will be operating on a one week delay as we will be away this week ’til July 4th for the PPMD Annual Conference in Arizona.  Mail pickup and email response will resume when we return.
