Social Stamping Blog Host - Friend

Today, from the Social Stampers we are sharing our creations with the theme “Friend” for this week. I think it’s so important to keep in contact with your friends during this time with COVID-19, I so miss our catch ups and coffees together. That’s why sending out a card is so important and it’s such a nice surprise to receive one in the mail.

I was going through my stamp sets to see which set I would use for my cards and the Beautiful Friendship was just perfect. I went to the Stampin’ Up! 2019 - 2020 Annual Catalogue for inspiration on a layout and I really liked the card on page 123 using the same set. I like how you can see the DSP using the same coordinating colours with the Cardstock and Ink.

The first card I’ve used is Blushing Bride, Rococo Rose and Smoky Slate. I just love the gingham DSP in Blushing Bride it’s so sweet and I’ve die cut the greeting with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

As I was stamping away with the first card, I thought let’s mix up the colours for the second card, so I've changed the roses to Rococo Rose and full strength ink for the leaves using Smoky Slate.

The final card I have used is Highland Heather, Seaside Spray and Pacific Point ink for the hydrangeas and the leaves are in Smoky Slate. The DSP and Cardstock is the beautiful in-color Purple Posey and the greeting I’ve used Gorgeous Grape.
