Stampin' Up! Healing Hugs Stamp Set for Get Well Cards

Stampin' Up! Healing Hugs Get Well Cards

Today's card was one of the swaps I used at Stampin' Up! On Stage last week in Orlando for one of the organized swaps in which I participated. I used the Healing Hugs stamp set, one of the Distinktive stamps, a patented technology used by Stampin' Up! to create stamped images with details and depth that previously could only be created with a two or three stamping steps.  The Distinktive process gives your images much more realism while saving stamping time, which is one of the reasons I chose this stamp set for making multiple swap cards.  It packs a "wow" with minimal work.         


I used a Thick Very Vanilla cardstock for my base card.  Then a Layer of Fresh Fig. Then a layer of Very Vanilla dry embossed with the Tufted Embossing folder.  

For the image layers, I stamped the rose image from Healing Hugs stamp set in Fresh Fig ink and fussy cut it.  Then I stamped two sets of the leaves from Healing Hugs in Old Olive and fussy cut them.  

Behind the rose and leaves I die cut the square image from Stained Glass Thinlits Dies from Fresh Fig cardstock.  Then I popped the rose image up on Dimensionals and adhered the rose and leaves to the center of the die cut.  Then I added 3 Pearl Basic Jewels around the rose.

Tip:  While you can back your die cut with Multipurpose Adhesive sheets before die cutting, in this case, I used a sponge and my Silicone Craft Sheet.  I added Multipurpose glue onto a sponge and then dabbed the sponge with glue onto the back of each die cut square.  It was faster that removing the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets from four sides of a square when making multiple cards. I use several Silicone Craft Sheets, and once I was finished, I cleaned the glue off of my Silicone Craft sheets with hand sanitizer and then soap and water.  


I added a bow and ruffled ribbon of 3/8" Fresh Fig Ruffled Ribbon to the bottom third of the card.

Then I die cut a label for the sentiment using one of the Stitched Labels Framelit Dies.  The sentiment is from Healing Hugs, which includes 3 additional sentiments.  It is stamped in Fresh Fig.  The ribbon goes through one of the holes in the end of the label and under the label, which secures the top of the label.  The bottom of the label is secured with a Dimensional to hold it in place. I really like how this card turned out!
