Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop - April - Favourite DSP

Welcome to Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop.
You may have joined me from Vicki Hunter or started with me halfway
through this Blog Hop.  This month we are all focasing on our
favourite DSP from the Annual Catalogue. As soon as I saw the new catalogue
in April last year, I knew that Naturally Eclectic was going to be
MY FAVOURITE.  Loved everything about the suite.
Sad to see these designer series paper retire.
I have made so many cards and layouts with these products.
 So today following on from my last blog post where I am trying to use up my scraps
from my desktop container, I pulled out all of the pieces I had already cut from
Naturally Eclectic DSP and Eclectic Layers Thinlits Dies.
I used my favourite colour cardstock from 2017-2019 In Colors
Lemon Lime Twist for all my cards as it matches perfectly.
This is how I do my inside layers so that I can use the Emerald Envy
and Lemon Lime Twist layer to cut Birthday out of the scraps. 

So many pretty patterns in this DSP range, I couldn't just stop at one card
The next card I used the Gemstone DSP & Diamond shape that I had already cut out
using the Eclectic Layers Thinlits Dies.
I kept this card really simple...I let the DSP speak for itself.

Last BUT not least, more leftover bits from my container.
I actually had to cut a couple of leaves and petals to fill in the space.
As I have said I have used this set for so many cards and layouts
here are just a few I thought I would share.

Up next is my friend Lou Kitzleman
I wonder which retiring DSP is Lou's favourite.

So pleased that you joined me here, I would love for you to
leave me a comment in the box below and tell me which one is your favourite.
I will in turn leave you some love on your blog.

Next month at Stampin' Dreams we will be SHOWCASING
