Sending Love & Healing Hugs

Healing Hugs is a such a beautiful Distinktive stamp set. I love so many things about it, from the gorgeous fonts to the detailed images. The leaves in particular are stunning. But I have struggled to achieve a contemporary look when using the rose stamp.

I challenged myself to create a set of cards using this stamp set that was both pretty and contemporary,

I’m usually a fan of bold colours as you know, but for this challenge I decided to pare things back, and I chose an alternative rainbow palette using Poppy Parade, So Saffron, Flirty Flamingo, Mango Melody, Lemon Lime Twist, Coastal Cabana & Highland Heather. I also stamped my rose image off once to achieve a softer hue.

I added black leaves for a less traditional take, and a black mat layer to make the coloured roses stand out even more.

My sentiment comes from Floral Frames and I will be so sad to see this stamp set go next month. ‘Sending Love’ is such an easy sentiment to use, and I love the cool font used in this set.

These cards have made me fall in love with this stamp set again and I’m excited to see what else I can challenge myself to create with it next! xx

Floral Frames

A fellow demonstrator asked the members of our team if we could send a handmade card to a brave young girl who is facing a tough journey ahead.

I wanted to get involved and decided to use Floral Frames and that simple yet lovely sentiment, ‘sending love’ on my card. I love it when sentiments are easy to use and you can convey a lot with just a few words.

I kept the design very simple and coloured in the flowers with my Stampin’ blends before adhering the frame itself to a corrugated mat. What a fabulous embossing folder, uber chic!

Never underestimate the power of a handmade card. I hope this one lifts Evelyne’s spirits and brightens her day 😘 xx
