Birthday Bash! Pals Hop

 Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month, the theme is Birthday Bash. We really hope that you enjoy and will be inspired by them! As you hop from blog to blog, we would appreciate your comments because we enjoy hearing from you. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

   How's Life Friends?

   I always look forward to hopping with my Pals, and I have taken this month's theme to start a birthday card stash. Usually I just make a card when I need one which keeps me in the studio and is kind of like a personal challenge activity for each occasion.

   After putting together all my new stamps from the Mini Catalog and the Sale A Bration flyer, I had to try out this new host set, Expressions of Friendship! Do you love all the different, retro handwriting font sentiments? I think they'll go so well with so many other images, and this set is discounted/available only with Host Rewards.

   The tree leaves image stamps so beautifully and quickly to create a soft look of volume, and it also doubles as grass coloring. The whole image took about a minute to fill out, and I had the idea to pair some dimension from Inspiring Canopy dies in the Inspired Thoughts Bundle;)

   You can see how I used Stampin' Write Markers to layer some different shades of browns in wispy brush strokes to color the bark;) 

   The scale of the images in this set is just right for quick creations and I hope you try some of your own!

   Be Well Friends!

More inspiration awaits, so use the lineup below to visit the rest of the Design Team. The Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Then, please mark your calendars for our next blog hop on March 9th. Our theme will be Cute Critters where our Design Team creates a project with any kind of animals, birds, butterflies or insects.

Until then, have fun in your craft space.
