Stamp 'N Hop Blog Hop | Theme: Favourite Retiring Annual Catalogue Product

Welcome and thanks for visiting :)

Today I am participating in the Stamp 'N Hop blog hop, where every month a number of Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the globe will be sharing projects to help inspire you in your paper crafting journey.

My name is Kirsten, and I am from Canberra, Australia. And as we Aussies like to say "G'Day" and thanks for popping by :)

This month we will be sharing projects inspired by our theme: Favourite retiring annual catalogue product.

I always find it hard to pick just one favourite of anything Stampin' Up! as I always have a few. The products retiring from the Annual Catalogue are no different..... I have a few favourites that are sadly retiring (however they are making way for some gorgeous new products).

One set that I use often, especially for the sentiments is Blooms & Wishes, so my card features this set, along with the Delightful Daisy DSP which is also retiring.

Here is my card:

Thanks so much for your support and for visiting me today :)

    1. Thanks so much Rachel :) I just love all the colours in this DSP sheet.

  10. I love how you used both stamping and the designer series paper in a simplistic but beautiful way! They fit perfectly together! This would be a fun card sketch!

  11. Kirsten - The DSP you chose work together so well. Your card is beautiful. I especially like the double stamping of "for you". That is truly striking. -Laurie Meier
