Stampin' Up! Healing Hugs

Today I wanted to highlight a new stamp set called Healing Hugs.  The Stampin' Up! Healing Hugs Stamp is one of the creative new stamp sets in a family of stamp sets called DistINKtive stamps.  These stamp sets are created using a new patent-pending process developed by Stampin' Up! to create photorealistic images.  That process creates stamps you won't find anywhere else on the market.  It creates images with depth and dimension that you usually can't create unless you use a two-or three-step stamping process.

Two stamps in the Healing Hugs stamp set use this process--the rose and the double leaves.  They make creating an image with a lot of depth and texture fast and easy.  Just stamp once and you're ready to use on a card front.   A tip for using the DistINKtive style stamps:  Be sure your stamp is fully inked to ensure your get the most detailed image from these stamps.  Stamp pads with bubbles means you're stamp pad is too juicy and you may lose some of the details.  

You can create more color variations on your DistINKtive-style stamps by using a base color and adding additional colors to select areas of the stamp using daubers.  Here's a video showing you this technique and telling you more about these wonderful photorealistic stamps.    


This is one of the wonderful cards I received from Annmarie Turner during a recent swap.  It uses the new Healing Hugs stamp set.  This card includes a basecard of Calypso Coral, then a layer of Very Vanilla, and then one of the new Tea Time Specialty Designer Series Papers.

The image layer repeats the Very Vanilla and Calypso Coral, and another Very Vanilla layer.


Then the rose image from Healing Hugs is stamped in Calypso Coral on Whisper White and cut out of by hand (fussy cut).  It is mounted on Dimensionals in the middle of the image block.  The sentiment is from this set, and it is stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  


Stamp: Healing Hugs
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Calypso Coral 
Paper:  Calypso Coral, Very Vanilla, Tea Room Specialty Designer Series Paper
Accessories:  Paper Snips, Bone Folder, Stampin' Trimmer, Multipurpose Glue, Dimensionals

The second card also uses the Healing Hugs rose image.  This card uses the returning Mint Macaron color for its base card.  Then the Whisper White layer is stamped using the Playful Background stamp set with Mint Macaron ink. 


The rose image from Healing Hugs stamp set is stamped in Mint Macaron on a circle of Whisper White cut using the Layering Circle Framelits.  Its matted on a Mint Macaron Circle created using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.    

The bow is Silver & Pool Party Baker Twine.  The card is accented with Pearl Basic Jewels.  The sentiment is from the Petal Pallet stamp set, and is stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  

Below are the two cards side by side showing you two ideas for using this stamp set.  Fast, simple cards using this new-style stamp to create details and texture stamping the rose image only once.  The card on the right needs few supplies other than your paper cutter, a scissors, a piece of coordinating paper, ink and cardstock.  The card on the right includes die cuts and background stamps and embellishments.  Both would be a thoughtful way to send a sentiment to someone you love.      


There are other stamp sets in the new annual catalog that were created using this new photorealistic process.  Look for the red DistINKtive emblem on the stamp set for stamps using this new process.
