March SOTM Blog Hop (Birthday Time)

Welcome to our March SOTM Blog Hop!  We will be featuring Birthday Time stamp set. This set of 26 stamps coordinates very well with the Stargazer collection.

If you have come here from Melinda Everitt ‘s Blog , you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog.  To visit each blog for some great ideas just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go! 


Supplies used are all Close to My HeartBirthday Time stamp setMake Waves Workshop Your Way, Archival Black Ink, Pansy Ink, and Lagoon Ink.

The stamp set that was used for the cards in the Make Waves Workshop were not my style. I transformed the cards by simply using a different stamp set! By using the Birthday Time stamp set as an alternative I was able to create a set of birthday cards, which I use all the time. Also note how I used the Archival Black ink. This is a great choice for a bold stamped image and a must-have ink for any stamper!

Now “Hop” on over to Brandi Robinson’s Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the consultants at their blogs to get some great crafting ideas!
