It was back in the beginning of June, after holding a workshop at the home of a brand new customer, when I realized I didn’t have a single stamp with any variant of “Get Well Soon”. It seemed too silly to be true …. but true it was! Fortunately, a quick review of the annual catalogue revealed the beautiful new Distinktive stamp set, “Healing Hugs”.
Distinktive stamp sets are so beautiful. These stamps are have a special texture that allows them to lay down the ink with varying levels of intensity, giving you photorealistic images with depth and dimension. Just look at these stunning floral images from the Stampin’ Up! catalogue:
You can find the Healing Hugs stamp set on page 80 of your annual catalogue, where you will also find a handy list of all the other Distinktive stamp sets. It’s easy to love this style of stamp, so be sure to look at all the sets to see which ones appeal to you!
In addition to the richly detailed floral images, Healing Hugs includes a terrific collection of “get well”-related sentiments, which is just what I needed last week when I got the news that two dear friends were both ill. It’s always sad to hear that a friend is unwell, but I was glad I could quickly make them some cards and let them know I was thinking of them.
I ended up making two similar cards, with only a couple of variations – using two different sentiments, and using a portrait layout versus landscape. I think the bright colours are a good choice to cheer up the recipients, and of course I am absolutely mesmerized by how gorgeous the flower images are.
These cards were so quick and easy to make, with just one layer and a few stamps applied. That meant I could pop them in the mail right away and get them into the hands of my dear friends. Hopefully these cards will brighten their day.
