Paper Crafting Blog Hop Thinking of You

bloghopbannerapril2018-001

I hope you are enjoying our Thinking of You Guys themed Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe are participating so we have a wide array of fun projects to share with you! You may have arrived from Annette McMillan’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

I decided to stamp a birthday card since birthdays are a Thinking of You occasion. It’s a quick and easy card with just stamps, paper and inks.

I have pulled all my soon to be retiring stamp sets and placed them in a pile. It’s 24 sets which I will try to showcase on my blog one last time before they are gone for good! I used the sets in photo to create this card along with the Tailored Tags punch and Country Club designer series paper.

Thank you for hopping around with us as we showcase greeting cards for Dads, Grads, Brides and Babies! You may have arrived from Lisa Kmiec’s blog and her fabulous project. My project is below.

I decided to create a pet parent Happy Dad’s Day card. All those early morning walkies and breakfast bowl prep need a little thanks from the pet.

The crumb cake cardstock was embossed using the Subtle folder to add a little texture.
