Operation Write Home Red Friday Bloghop!

Welcome to my stop on the Operation Write Home Red Friday Bloghop! If you’ve gotten here without starting at the beginning, you’ll want to click HERE and start from the top. We’re turning “Black Friday” into “Red Friday” by supporting our nation’s heroes!
Here is how I created my card:
  • Stamp the Flowerful Heart on a piece of whisper white cardstock in Versamark Watermark stamp pad.
  • Heat emboss it by using Gold embossing powder.
  • Color in Real Red and Ireland Indigo by sponging. Gently rub off any residue on the gold embossed area. 
  • Cut out a heart shape by using the Heart Framelits Dies.
  • Dry embossing on a piece of whisper white by using Northern Flurry embossing folder.
  • Stamp the sentiment at the bottom right side first.
  • On top of the large snowflakes, adhere the heart cut out by using stampin' dimensionals.
  • Tie the ribbon around the front panel.
  • Adhere Rhinestones on the smaller snowflakes and some in the open space.
  • Adhere the front panel  to the card base.

Operation Write Home is a charity that sends blank handmade cards to service members deployed overseas. They’ve sent nearly 3 million cards! That’s a lot of letters and love heading home to those who are keeping the home fires burning.
November through February are the slowest months for OWH, and that’s something we as crafters can do something about! We all have a handful of cards in our stash — we don’t even need to take a break from our holiday preparations to just write Operation Write Home on the back and send them in, right? That’ll keep our heroes busy writing home during a long winter away from home.
Be sure to read the information on the Stars and Stamps post so you send in what’s needed (no Christmas cards, no glitter, A2, etc.) - and make a hero’s day by giving them a beautiful creation to write home on!
What’s a bloghop without prizes? See the Stars and Stamps post for the full list of goodies by the bloghop sponsors - and go link up YOUR love card there, too! There are prizes for both those who comment on the blogs as well as folks who share their own creation!
I am going to offer my blog candy which will be from my Stampin' Up' products stash. Please leave your parting thoughts and you will get a chance to win my blog candy. I will announce the winner next Saturday, December 6, 2014

The next stop on the hop is…. Kathy Racoosin,

Tips for How to store your Photopolymer Stamp sets

Don't you struggle when you have the new Stampin' Up!'s photopolymer stamp set to store before and after you ink the stamps?

On its own original sheets, they are extremely sticky which is good sign but sometimes you might have hard time to remove from the sheets. Just recent I read someone even torn off the small images while trying to peel it off.  If you have to do it every time, it would be a big hassle.

From my experience, I would like to share my Tips for How to store your Photopolymer Stamp sets.

When you first received a photopolymer stamp set, you will get one of just like this.

#1 Clear Mount case (This is an example.)

 #2 Photopolymer stamp set comes on the acetate sheets inside the case separately.

#3 First I separate the index sheet and photopolymer stamp sets.

#4 Insert the index sheets in between the case and vinyl protector by using glue dots on the top and bottom only. You will consider which direction the sentiment and images would match. You can use a glue dots on the top and the bottom to just secure to stay in between.

#5 From the stamp set sheet, remove the stamps and layer them according to matching images of the index sheet.

#6 Completed storage. It peels off  from the case smoothly and when gets stick to the acryl block it stay stick strong.

Here are some other photopolymer stamps set that I stored in the original case. you will end up using only the index side of acetate sheet. You can use the spare clean acetate sheet for another purpose.


Hope this tips help you to store any photopolymer stamp sets organized and easy access and put it back. Please let me know if you have questions at seongsookduncan at yahoo dot com.
