Hello friends! We have an amazing blog hop for you today filled with inspiration to show our support for all of those affected in the Ukraine.
Hero Arts has put together a collection and is donating 100% of the net profits from the sales of this Support Ukraine collection.
Funds will be donated to the Ukrainian Red Cross for immediate, on-the-ground help. We will continue our fundraising efforts to also support the long-term rebuilding that will be required to restore schools, roads, homes, and the spirit of the Ukrainian people.
My card today features some of these products in the Support Ukraine Collection.
I have also put together a video showing you how I created this card. You can watch the video down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.
The blue and yellow of the Ukraine flag symbolize the beauty and calm of the skies above and the joy and prosperity of wheat fields throughout the country. The national flower, the sunflower, symbolizes motherhood.
Using the ⭐️SUNFLOWER FIELD, I stamped the image in Green Hills, Fresh Lawn, ⭐️DANDELION, Pumpkin Pie and Cup O Joe.
I am not sure if they have mountains in the Ukraine but I wanted to fill in my scene a little more by adding the Color Layering Mountain. I stamped this image in Moss and Forever Green to give this more of a hillside look.
Using the Ukraine colors, I ink blended a sky with ⭐️INDIGO and ⭐️DANDELION using my blending brush.
I added clouds to the sky using the Barrel Wave stamp set but there are lots of stamp sets with clouds that you could use. This just happen to be the first one I came across in my stash.
My die cut sentiment comes from the Friend Words die set and I stamped another sentiment underneath using the ⭐️SUNFLOWER FIELD set and Intensified Black ink.
Here’s to hoping for brighter days for our friends in the Ukraine.
If you already have these sets in the collection, maybe consider purchasing and gifting to a friend. Every little bit helps to show our support and help counter the devastation and destruction.
Hero Arts is also offering a ⭐️GIVING SUNFLOWER DIGITAL DOWNLOAD that you can purchase for a small price and 100% of the sales will be donated as well. I plan on coloring this image up soon!
Products included in the donation as marked with a ⭐️ linked below.

Beautiful card and so symbolic. A huge thank you to all the card companies and individuals supporting the Ukraine and its brave citizens with their fighting spirit. If Putin isn’t stopped here, this will not be his last aggression. He terrifies me.
