Hello stampers. It is the season for lots of different celebrations including weddings, graduations and of course, birthdays and babies. Hand Delivered is great for all occasions! It is a two-step stamp that is so cute and versatile. I am going to use it for my coffee and a card class on Tuesday since I need a card that can do the job for various occasions. Not everyone needs a graduation card, so let’s see what I did with just one card and three different sentiments.
I could have used the stamp that has the stack of books with an apple on top but I really love these cheerful balloons. Maybe I’ll do the stack of books in my video. The balloons are just beautiful coloured with Blends. See below for the colours I used.
I liked grounding this card with a one inch strip of Wood Textures paper and then adding a pop of colour with the Metallic Ribbon in Petal Pink.
The first time I used this stamp I thought the buttons were supposed to go on the skirt. That looked terrible because the balloon strings also ended up on the skirt and the hands were all bunched up in her waist. So be careful to put the buttons above the skirt. Does this sound crazy to you? Well, this is a two step stamp. The skirt and the legs is one stamp and the balloons with the hands and the blouse is another stamp. Here is a picture of the stamp set so you can see what I am talking about.
One last tip. If you want to pop up one of the balloons, our 1 1/4″ circle punch is perfect for the job. Sadly this punch is retiring and sold out. Our circle framelits will also do the job.
Thanks so much for stopping by, I will share a video to show you how this set works and also a few tips and tricks on colouring with Blends. If you order online this month using the host code TXE4JNCY you will get a chance to win this stamp set!
I realize that my video got cut short because my phone ran out of space but I am on “Oma” duty right now, so I will redo the video when Leo is in bed this afternoon. Thanks for your patience!!
