Hello friends and happy Sunday to you! I hope you are all having a great weekend! Is anyone doing anything particularly exciting or fun? For the first time in a long time, I had nothing on my calendar for this entire weekend and what a great feeling that has been! There was no rush to get up in the morning (other than howling cats that think they will die after 6 am if they aren't fed!) and lots of fun crafting time.
Today's card features a new hostess stamp set called "Hand Delivered" that will be featured in the 2018-2019 catalog (available
June 1). Last month when I attended the OnStage Local event in Hartford, I saw many samples on the display boards using this new set and I was very excited to receive it just a few weeks ago with my demonstrator pre-order.

The base of this card is made from Thick Whisper White cardstock. The first matted layer is a sheet of Crumb Cake cardstock that I ran through my Big Shot using a Stitched Scalloped Nesting Rectangle die from Gina Marie Designs. After I die cut the rectangle, I ran the cardstock through my Big Shot again using the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I die cut an oval from the Layering Ovals Framelit dies in Whisper White Cardstock. In the center of the oval, I stamped the woman's skirt and legs in Tuxedo Memento Black ink. I colored these in with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Ink markers. On a separate sheet of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sign and fussy cut it out. I stamped the "Love Celebrating You" sentiment inside the sign using Rich Razzleberry ink before adhering it to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.
I stamped the image of the woman's skirt and legs again on a piece of Nature's Poem DSP (that had a Rich Razzleberry striped pattern) and fussy cut the skirt out. I adhered it on top of the initial stamped image using Snail Permanent Adhesive. I added a coat of Clear Wink of Stella to give the skirt a little sparkle. Using a small piece of that same Nature's Poem DSP, I stamped the balloons in Versamark ink and heat embossed them with White Stampin' Emboss powder. I fussy cut these balloons as well and adhered them to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals. I also added a clear Wink of Stella coat to the balloons. To create the banner at the bottom of the card, I used the banner die from the Large Numbers framelit die. I heat embossed the "happy birthday" sentiment in White Stampin' Emboss powder and attached it to the bottom of the oval using Stampin' Dimensionals.
