InKing Royalty Birthday Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s February Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by a single word – and this month our projects are centered around BIRTHDAY. It’s always special to celebrate the birthday of someone you love, so handmade birthday cards are always fun to share. We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

My project today features the Beauty Abounds and Birthday Cheer stamps sets!

Using the bokeh stamp from Beauty Abounds, I created a rainbow of “bubbles” featuring colors from the Brights collection. I layered the Whisper White piece on a slightly larger piece of Silver Glimmer Paper and added a few rhinestones for some added bling to this bright & cheery birthday card. The pop of color that the Granny Apple Smith Textured Weave Ribbon adds is so fun! The great sentiment comes from the Birthday Cheer stamp set and is perfect for the rainbow of bubbles layered behind it.

Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Sue Jackson at Just Peachy Stamping. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it! Have a wonderful & blessed day!

  1. Your card design inspired me to purchase the Beauty Abounds stamp set just for the bokeh dots! I plan to use your basic card concept to showcase the 2017 – 19 retiring In Colors in my April card classes next week. I will give your full credit for the inspiration!

  2. You can call them bokeh I call them pretty pretty bubbles !! Such delightful colors ,Julie !
    This card will bring a smile to whoever receives it !

  3. I love everything about this card, Julie! This sentiment is a favorite of mine, and I love the rainbow of bokeh dots. Brilliant! Even the pop of glimmer paper makes me happy! So glad you hopped with us today! ♥

  4. Love, Love, Love this! That bokeh stamp is a must have, and I am planning to use it for quite a while, even if it doesn’t carry over. I especially like the silver glitter paper layer peeking out and then my eyes are immediately drawn in by the shiny embellishments on the card. Love!
