National Teen Self Esteem Hop ’21

Welcome to the #nationalteenselfesteemhop21  

A great group of crafters have come together to spread love, joy and encouragement to our younger generation.  Do you have a teenager in your household or maybe a younger child who struggle with Self Esteem, please share with them the lovely projects in this hop and maybe they can take some encouragement away from it! 

Don’t worry you have 7 days to hop along so feel free to keep popping back! 

But you need to pop over Instagram to be considered!

However, if you want see how I made my three cards today, just scroll down!

I started with an older Dina Wakley Media stamp set. These three girls seem to have something so special about them, but yet, some how could easily be overlooked. I stamped them out using copic friendly ink onto some heavy duty cardstock.

I colored the images using my copics, making certain to put each lady in a bold and bright eye catching tone.

For each card I pulled out a stencil and a new Distress Oxide color. For my girl in orange, pulled out Crackling Campfire and a Dylusions stencil.

For the girl in purple, I used another Dylusions stencil and Kitch Flamingo Distress Oxide.

Finally for the gal in teal I pulled out, an old stencil that I no longer have the packaging for and Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide.

To each of the images I add a sentiment from the Dina Wakley stamp set. I really felt each of the three sentiments was something a girl who is struggling with self esteem needs to hear.

I splattered each of the cards with some Distress Oxide Spray. I used Salvaged Patina, Picked Raspberry, and Carved Pumpkin.

Each of the images got a subtle shadow around the edges using Hickory Smoke Distress Ink. Finally each image got slightly trimmed down and added to an A2 card frame.
