Stampin’ Addicts Birthday Blog Hop

SABDbutton

Welcome to the Stampin' Addicts Birthday Blog Hop weekend! Stampin' Addicts.com is a free website dedicated to supporting Stampin' Up! stampers and demonstrators alike. If you have not been to Stampin' Addicts, you should check them out as soon as you finish the Birthday Blog Hop! This is my very first time participating in a Stampin’ Addicts Blog Hop and I’m excited and honored to be part of it. Hopefully this will just be the first of many times I am part of a Stampin’ Addicts Blog Hop (so check back in the future).

You have found stop #19 on the hop, featuring elegant or classy birthday cards. If you just arrived from Stampin' Addicts, welcome and thank you for stopping by! If you just came from Holly’s “Rubber Redneck Blog”, I hope you enjoyed her western themed birthday cards. You can follow the hop right through - each stop will lead you to the next and make a complete circuit. The blog hop posts will be active through midnight on Sunday, February 21. After that, many hostesses will post detail pictures, instructions, and supply lists. Be sure to bookmark your favorites and go back to visit next week!

When I signed up to be a part of this hop, I decided I wanted to feature classy or elegant birthday cards. Now my samples I have to share may not look like they are much classier than a common card to you, but I tried to add just a few little extra-special touches to kick them each up a notch.

I found the THOROUGHLY MODERN DSP to be a perfect fit for the feel that I wanted for these cards and all of the DSP I used on the cards come from this package of paper.

Birthday-Card-1 I wish it wasn’t so hard to catch the shine and shimmer of out Dazzling Diamonds in a photo of a card. I used the Dazzling Diamonds to accentuate the embossed design on my butterfly.

Birthday-Card-2
The Dazzling Diamonds are used here to accent the centers of the flowers. TIP: Use Dazzling Diamonds on a Glue Dot for some quick and perfect circular bling.

Birthday-Card-3 Stamps from the new vintage collection in the holiday mini add a touch of elegance and sophistication to this card. The finishing touch is made by adding a rhinestone brad and some silver brads to the flower accents.

Birthday-Card-4
Our Exclusive Top Note Die and Scallop Border punch make a nice landing spot for the sentiment (and the butterflies too!)











I plan on making a container of some sort that will hold each of these cards and their envelopes. Unfortunately, I just don’t have it ready quite yet to show during the hop. But check back soon! I’m hoping to have it finished up soon and may even offer the whole kit as blog candy in the near future!

Continue on your fun and fabulous journey by visiting Kandi and “My Sweet Stampin Spot”. If at any time you get lost along the way, you can always come back here to get straightened out or visit our entire lineup here.

Thank you so much for visiting here today. Check back early next week for some closeup shots of these projects along with the supply list for each card.

Please leave me a comment and let me know you were here!
