Creative Inking Blog Hop- Birthday Bash!

creative hop


Hi there stamping friends! I hope you are having a great week! This month our group is featuring Birthday cards for our blog hop! I can’t wait to see what the others are featuring this month.

As many of you know, the past 11 days have been anything but normal while my father has been recovering from his accident, hip surgery, some undetected heart attack(s), and life on oxygen plus helping my mother who has had some chronic health issues herself, plus being short-handed and working long hours at my work has made life very stressful lately… but- there’s good news-my dad is recovering nicely and is more and more “himself” every day. He was just moved to Sunnyview Rehabilitation Center on Tuesday and we are hoping his recovery goes smoothly while he is there. He has a vigorous schedule of OT and PT, and we are so very blessed and thankful for the amazing medical care he has received. Thank you all for your kind words, thoughts and prayers, our family appreciates them so much!

Since I have not been home much, nor have I done much stamping lately, I was a little stumped at where to begin when I was preparing for this blog hop, so I thought of one of my favorite new stamp sets … called “Build a Birthday” found on page 11 of new 2015-16 Annual Catalog (item #138646). This set has been so versatile, and really fun and easy to use since it is one of our amazing photopolymer style stamps. That means they are clear- you can see right through them- which makes stamping a breeze! The coordinating products used in these featured cards include the new 2015-17 In-Colors, the Cherry on Top Designer Washi Tape (item #138384) and Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper Stack (item 3 138443). Also, the new 1″ Dotted Lace Trim ribbon is a real show-stopper, it makes every card look more elegant, and is so easy to tie!

This last card has a fun belly-band that slides off so the gate-fold card closes easily.


In case you need to see our Weekly Deals, these 6 items are 25% off until Monday August 24th.


Which card did you like the most? I’d love to hear from you- do you own this set yet? If not, it’s a must have- and easily a gender neutral stamp set- it’s nice to have this stamp set so you can make up a bunch of birthday cards to have on hand!
