Healing Hugs - Stamp 'N Hop Blog Hop

Hello and welcome, perhaps again, to Stamp 'N Hop blog hop. Every month a group of Stampin' Up!® demonstrators from all around the globe are getting together and working on the same theme projects. This month theme is CASEing the annual Stampin' Up! catalogue. 

CASE stands for Copy And Share Everything or Copy And Selectively Edit. It means you can replicate a project you like or you can copy just an element of it and put your own twist on it. In any case, always credit appropriately the source of your inspiration.

I've chosen to CASE a card I saw in the annual catalogue on the top of the page number 110 that features the Healing Hugs stamp set found on the same page. Healing Hugs is a beautiful set that has a couple of distINKtive stamps. These stamps lay down the ink at different opacities giving the finished image more depth.

I used a different colour for the main image and changed the orientation of the card. I also used more leaves and instead of sequins, I decorated the card with glitter enamel dots.

This is a quick and simple card. To simplify it even further the heat embossing can be replaced by just stamping so even if you don't have a heat gun and an embossing powder you can still have a go at making this gorgeous project.

I hope you enjoyed my card and that it might inspire you to play with some rubber stamps on your own.  But before you do that just make sure you will hop to another blog to see more, inspiring projects.
