My Favorite New Stamp for Be Inspired Blog Hop

It’s time for another Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop – what fun!  The Be Inspired Design Team is a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from all over the world who are excited to share our themed projects with you.  I’m honored to be a part of this group of talented stampers.

The theme for today’s Be Inspired Hop is “My Favorite New Stamp Set.” What fun!  If you aren’t starting the hop here, then you probably just popped over from a visit with my Aussie friend (and super-talent) Louise Sharp at  She never disappoints!

Here’s my card for this hop:

Tips, Tricks and Reminders

  • Favorite Stamp.  I don’t follow the rules very well, so my project does not follow the “favorite new stamp set” theme – instead, I’m sharing my “favorite new stamp” from the new catalog.  I absolutely adore this gorgeous sentiment from Lots of Love (I could never get enough of this font) and couldn’t wait to ink it up.  I stamped “sending lots of love” right over the Powder Pink patterned paper with a juicy Basic Black stamp pad.  The set comes with some great flowers and leaves to adorn the sentiment – but this says exactly what I want it to say – without having to add anything else.  Here’s a look at this wonderful set:

  • Lots of Love.  This “sending lots of love” is a funny sentiment – whether it’s a casual greeting or formal greeting all depends on how you decorate it.  When I was in grade school, we signed our letters (the ones we passed in class) with “LOL” – at the time, it meant “lots of love.”  With playful colors or fun, graphic paper, this sentiment could be sent, for example, to give a friendly shout out to your bestie.  The soft colors and floral patterns I used on this card, though, make the same sentiment more formal – appropriate for the loss of a loved one or even a wedding.  I love how versatile this gorgeous sentiment is.
  • Layering with Fresh Florals.  I’m LOVING the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack.  Although we’ve seen these patterns before (in last year’s Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper), they are like new in these 2017-2019 In Colors.  I adore the watercolored wash across the pages and that there are four patterns in each color (two of the patterns have a white pattern on a colored background, while two have a colored pattern on a white background).  That makes them PERFECT for beautiful layers on a card!Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack, Stampin' Up!
