OSAT Blog Hop - You've Got This! September 2020

 Hi There!  Hope you're having a wonderful day.  It's that time again.. time for another One Stamp At A Time Blog Hop!  This month's theme is You've Got This!  If you have already been hopping, thanks so much for continuing on.  If you are starting with my blog, you'll definitely want to hop all the way through and check out all of the inspiration from some Amazing Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the Globe!  I am so honored to be a part of this amazing group and I find so much inspiration each and every hop!  So grab some coffee, tea, or whatever relaxes you and enjoy!

My mind went directly to two of my granddaughters when I saw this month's theme!  As you know with the Covid-19 Pandemic, everything for school is so different from the norm.  I feel like these two can use lots of encouragement and reminders that they have this!  

First here is the card I made for Taylor...

The amazing "Make a Difference" Stamp set allows you to personalize your cards!  Taylor has a lot of changes this year.  She is having to wear a mask all day in class, can't sit with her friends at lunch and has recently made the Middle School Softball Team.   I used the Forever Fern Stamp Set and the Note Cards and Envelopes.  I used Just Jade, Soft Sea Foam, Shaded Spruce and Pretty Peacock Inks and backed my front layer with Just Jade Cardstock before adding to the front of the Note Card.  

Next up is Laken's card..

Laken will be doing school remotely as she recently had brain surgery and isn't fully released from her surgeon yet.  This has been a hard time for her as she really wants to be at school with her friends and of course playing softball.  I know she's going to need a lot of encouragment as she gets used to her new normal.  I used the "Sending Sunshine" stamp set and the Note Cards and Envelopes for this one.  Again, I used the "Make a Difference" Stamp Set to personalize it for her. The inks used were Coastal Cabana, Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, Just Jade and Bumble Bee.  I used the Stitched So Sweetly Dies to cut out the scallop rectangle and backed it with a layer of Bermuda Bay Cardstock.  I took about 1/8" off of the top of the note card so that the scallop would be more centered.  

I also made a book mark for both girls with the same stamp set to coordinate with their cards..

I used the Scallop Tag Topper Punch and a 2" x 5" strip of cardstock for the bookmarks. 

If you haven't tried personalizing a card with a name, you really should!  The Make a Difference Stamp is so easy to use!  

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Enjoy the rest of the hop!

Blessings, Tina
