Father’s Day is two weeks today (21st June) – another one of those days which just creeps up on you without you realising! Luckily this year we are well prepared thanks to Stampin’ Up! – who kindly sent us their Guy Greetings Stamp Set to try out.
Stampin’ Up! make a variety of crafty things, but for us it was all about the stamps – and for H it was all about making Daddy a Father’s Day card. We were sent the ‘Guy Greetings Stamp Set‘ which has a variety of options for cards for boys and men – and it’s something I know we’ll get a lot of use from.
From the Stampin’ Up! website – Our clear-mount stamps are made of the same high-quality red rubber as our wood-mount stamps, but they’re repositionable. They’re precut and ready to go. Temporarily mount these stamps on clear blocks for stamping, then remove them for space-saving storage. You’ll only need one set of blocks for all your clear-mount stamps (blocks sold separately). Our premium red rubber will last for years and give a superior stamped impression each time. The stamps come packaged in cases with images on the spine for easy storage and quick reference.
The 22 stamps are packaged in DVD style cases, so really easy to store. There’s a separate sheet which you can stick on each stamp so you know which one you’re using, and I found the stamps were nice and clear too.
So what do you get in the Guy Greetings set? Father’s Day, a Happy Birthday stamp along with Brother, Father, Uncle, Grandpa, Dad, Husband – so it covers quite a wide variety of male options. Alongside this are some picture stamps, all of which add a nice touch to a card, and some logos.
So I left the card making to H. She decided to keep it really simple and just use the Father’s Day stamp twice, as well as a picture. We did a few practice stamps just so she could work out how hard she needed to press before the card creation – and then there was no stopping her.
The card is now living in a Very Safe Place for two more weeks until the big day comes – and what I like the most about it is H being in control of it – sure, it got a bit messy but the ink washed off her hands quickly and easily – and she’s really proud of her creation. In addition to this, we now have an instant solution when it comes to any other male members in the family’s birthdays or celebrations! We’re really impressed – if you’re on the lookout for something like this, then do consider Stampin’ Up!’s Guy Greetings set. It retails for £32 and Stampin’ Up! offer delivery to the UK, Austria, Netherlands, Germany and France. Shipping costs are additional.
We were sent the stamps for the purpose of review. All opinons are our own.
