Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop – Favorite New Stamp Set

Happy Saturday! I have recuperated from last Saturday’s big blog hop day and I’m back with just a single hop for Create with Connie and Mary today!

We’ve had the new Stampin’ Up catalog for a little over a month now and we all have found ourselves gravitating towards a few ‘favorite’ items. This is the theme this week, Favorite Stamp Set.

I’d have to say my favorites vary.

Some are visual favorites, stamps I loved, ordered, and have not touched. That’d be several sets……

Hostess sets that are not easily purchased, you have to earn them, and for me, that be Tranquil Tide.

But, one of the ones that seems to be consistently on my table, one of the stamps already mounted to a block, would have to be Lovely Inside & Out. I created yet another card with that set for this weeks hop –

I created a stamped background using two shapes in Memento Black, Basic Grey and Smokey Slate. It was rather bold. I decided to run with it anyway adding a piece of Card Stock Vellum on top to tone things down a bit.

Using the coordinating framelits, I cut the word ‘friend’ out and removed it from the oval border with a few snips.

This stamp set has terrific words too. I added them alongside the ‘friend’ for interest. It turned out wonderful! This would also make a great card for a guy. It’s not frilly at all!

So what’s your favorite stamp set from the new catalog and why? I’ll randomly select someone for some Happy Mail!!
