Delicate Details Stamp Set by Stampin’ Up! can pack a punch!
I think that the Delicate Details Stamp Set from the Sale-a-Bration Catalogue is one of those sets that can be easily overlooked. When I first looked at it, I though ‘a bit blah’, it won;t be a favourite and added it to my stash (perhaps never to be seen again). But then I wanted to create my February Thank You cards and this set just jumped out at me. I easily envisaged placing all the strips on one large block (F Block) and stamping the images at the top of the card and then reversing the block and stamping a mirror image at the bottom. How quick and easy did this turn out to be. And there was just enough room for the sentiment in between the two patterns of a standard card size (5-1/2″ x 8-1/4″- A4).
It did need a sentiment that added some BANG and again I went to a previously overlooked stamp set call Double Take, new from the Occasions Catalogue. The sentiments from this stamp set just jumped off the page, making a fairly plain card into something that did pack a punch. Each of the sentiments used a two step stamping technique in two different contrasting but coordinating colours (Emerald Envy/Mint Macaron; Sahara Sand/Night of Navy; and Bermuda Bay/Night of Navy).
This turned out to be a very simple one layer card something I don’t do too often. With this stamp set you can whip up lots of cards in a short period of time. I also decorated the inside of the card with a single lace image row in one of the colours used in the sentiment.
How else can you make the Delicate Details Stamp Set one of your ‘go-to’ stamps?
Each of the images from this stamp set works well when heat embossed, especially when using white embossing powder. It would work well as a feature with other layers. Check out pinterest for lots of other ideas.
