Social Stamping - Friends

Welcome to the Social Stamping blog hop, a lovely endeavour started by my stamping buddy Kelly Kent. You can read a bit about why this all started here.  This is the fourth week of the Social Stamping, but my first time joining in, and the theme for this week is Friend.

I thought I would start out by choosing a stamp set with "friend" in the sentiment, and to be honest I was really surprised how many sets I have that fit the bill! I ended up choosing this one from So Sentimental as I just love the way it fits in the coordinating framelits. I kept the design really simple because the beautiful DSP really doesn't need much added to it.

I liked the design and DSP so much I decided to make a second one using the same layout but in different colours, the white background DSP and a landscape layout.  To add the ribbon I punched holes in each end of the label and threaded it through.  I did cheat a little and added the bow separately!

Next in the social stamping hop is my lovely stamping friend Tanya Bell, just click on the button above to pop on over to see what she has created.

You can find the full list of participants on Kelly's post.

Happy Stamping


  1. Love love love the combination of the dsp and the sentiment and the die cut shape!! Brilliant cards and so perfect for friends.

  2. I love how you have let the DSP shine. They are beautiful pieces and love how you added the sentiment in the middle with the ribbon threaded through it.

  3. I actually love making 'friend' and 'hello' cards because they cover so many reasons to give someone a card. And I LOVE DSP so your cards just sing to me! Thanks for joining #socialstamping Mon! Kelly x

  6. I love this DSP! It goes perfectly with those dies. I don't have them yet but I am thinking I need them! Great cards thanks for sharing x

  7. Gorgeous! A simple design but anyone would be delighted to find this in the letterbox. I love how you have added the layer behind the sentiment to really make it pop.
