Hand Delivered Balloons For You. Have you spotted the Host Sets at the back of the Catalogues? I sometime think we forget that they are there. Today I am using the Hand Delivered set from the Annual Catalogue. This is one of the items we know will definitely NOT be in the new Annual Catalogue in June. How do I know this? Because Host Sets never do, so if you like this set you really need to think about getting it soon (more on how to do this later).
I wanted this card to be a simple card, but I also wanted to highlight how changing just one element on a card can make a real impact to the final project. So the card is just a stamped image coloured with Stampin’ Blends. I wanted the balloons to really stand out, so I used colours I felt would have a large impact; Poppy Parade, Night of Navy and Daffodil Delight. The rest of the colouring is in softer, but toning, colours to help keep the balloons as the main feature.
The one thing I changed between the two cards is the colour of the mat layer. On my original card I used Night of Navy, but on the one I made with you in the video, I used Daffodil Delight. Can you see how this makes a real difference? The strong colour of the Night of Navy really makes the whole card ‘pop’. The Daffodil Delight version is perfectly acceptable, but it does not have the impact that I was looking for.
I think this shows just how important it is to choose the right products for your projects, just one element can make such a difference to the final look.
