Team Tuesday with Ceal: Healthcare Heroes

Hello everyone!
It's Ceal, here to share with you today.
Our small group usually visits a local nursing home once a month. Since the whole social distancing thing, we haven't been able to go and the activities director told us that they miss us terribly. So what we decided to do was to dress silly (not as clowns, because clowns are creepy) and make signs to hold at their windows to let the know they are loved and we miss them too.
They absolutely loved it, by the second window everyone was either standing or sitting by their window smiling and waving. It's the little things yall. 
no worries there weren't that many of us and we stayed over 6 feet apart going from one window to the next.
I should have taken pictures to insert here so I'll insert another one of the cards

I got to thinking that lots of cardmakers (including myself) are making cards to be sent to hospitals, well the people that work here at the nursing home are on the front lies as well so I decided to make them a card to say thanks. 
This is when you are so thankful for Iliana inventing the Misti.
 I had 130 cards to make so I made a simple design that could be mass produced. After I got done with the stamping I thought they needed a bit of color. Not only can you use the Misti for stamping but also for stenciling. I placed the stencil in the corner of the Misti and taped it down and then just placed my card under the stencil and added color with the Life Changing Blender Brushes.
I used a stamp set that I earned free by taylored Expressions and several stencils and the Life Changing Blender Brushes by Picket Fence Studios.


  1. Lovely cards! I do not understand how you placed the stencil in the Misti? Do you have a picture? Thank you, bless you with your visits tot he Nursing home.

  2. Also wondering, how did you blend the stencil line so straight? Thank you.

  3. Love this design idea so much! This also would work with that huge stash of Washi Tape many of us have. Thank you for thinking of the nursing home workers!


Thank you for taking the time to comment.
