Operation Write Home

I am currently making cards for Operation Write Home, which sends blank handmade cards to deployed servicemen and women. OWH is an amazing organization that ships thousands of cards each month to our nation's Heroes so they have something to write home on. Please check out the tag on the sidebar for more information on this inspiring mission. Please join me in supporting our men and women who sacrifice for us all.

OWH VCMP Challenge #5

Ok, I have to admit that I thought this one was a bit odd.  BUT, I did try it.  Click here to see the challenge hosted by Donna where she inks up making tape.  Instead of taping my stamping block I taped a square piece of plywood with 2 different sizes of tape.  I found the wood grain to show through which was nice, however, I then had mo-jo block and couldn't think of one thing to do with it.  I will work on that one later.  This was my second try.

I took a piece of cardstock that I had already embossed with a folder and laid IT into the ink.  Now THAT was what I was looking for!  One other note:  I wiped the ink off the tape with a wet paper towel and set it aside for future use since it was on the wood and not on my stamping block.

Nice card Lynn! really smart idea to wrap something else in the tape too. I hadn't thought of it and was thinking I didn't want to have to deal with the aftermath of adhesive on an acrylic block. Now I may go back and give this a try. :)
