CSF Saturday Hop - Bye Bye!


Today's Create With Stamping Friends Saturday Hop theme is to show the stamp/bundle that we are sad to see retire. Gosh, how can I choose? I'm losing thirty-eight! 😧 So, I closed my eyes and put my finger on the first page of the annual catalog Last Chance list, and it landed on Sending Smiles.


I used a couple of retiring products, as well as a new In Color and an Online Exclusive embellishment. I'm sure sorry to see that Glorious Gingham didn't carry over, though some DSP did.


That's all for today - see you next Saturday! Up next is Libby Fens at Libby Stamps. Or click the "back" button to go back to Lori at Loritamarie Crafts.

Thursday Challenge - CSF813


Our Create With Stamping Friends Thursday Challenge is a sketch this week. This was the perfect way for me to show off the upcoming new patterns in the color collections of DSP, and today I'm sharing one of the new In Colors - Pretty in Pink. Yes, it's a returning color, and I'm so happy it's back! This is the sketch we are working from today:


You might have noticed another color that's new, too. It's called Basic Beige, and it's a lovely light neutral color which is going to pair well with so many others!


I used a greeting from the new Country Flowers bundle, and die cut some flowers from the same bundle. I can see this one is going to be used a lot. 😊


If you look closely, you'll see the new In Color Shimmer Gems, too. They are perfect for adding a little subtle shine, and they aren't too bulky which is a bonus!

CSF Saturday Hop - In the Spotlight

Today's Create With Stamping Friends Saturday Hop theme is highlight/color one area - and leave the rest neutral. We have a lovely new neutral color coming next month called Basic Beige, so I just had to use it for this card!


And I also had to use the upcoming Country Flowers bundle to make it! That whole suite is just so sweet....I can't wait for you to see it.


That's all for today - see you next Saturday! Up next is Libby Fens at Libby Stamps. Or click the "back" button to go back to Lori at Loritamarie Crafts.
