Creativity Abounds Blog Hop...Birthdays!


Welcome to the Creativity Abounds Blog Hop!  We are an international group of Stampin' Up!® demonstrators.  We hop together on the third Wednesday of every month.  Our hops focus around a particular bundle, holiday, occasion or product suite.  This month we are focusing on Birthdays.

Every month we create a tutorial bundle. The tutorial bundle is available as a gift with a qualifying purchase or can also be purchased.   We also have a stamp camp 3 times a year.  The next camp will be on February 9th and 10th 2024 and feature the Notes of Nature bundle (coming soon in the 2024 January-April Mini Catalog)

I have a little sneak peek of products that are coming in the 2024 January-April Mini and  Sale-A-Bration catalogs.  


The beautiful roses are from a set/bundle called Stippled Roses.  I am so happy that there are large floral images in the new mini catalog.   I do love flowers and having a large image allows for lots of fun exploring different coloring ideas.  On this card I used Flirty Flamingo and Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends.   The images are detailed so they also look beautiful without any additional coloring.   Around the flowers I also added a few leaves in Granny Apple Green cut using the coordinating Stippled Roses dies.  Tucked behind some of the greenery is some Silver Twine and some Silver & White Sheer Ribbon.  

The roses are mounted on Basic Black CS that was cut using the Everyday Details Dies.  This is another new set of dies coming in the Mini Catalog.  There are 11 dies in the set and I think they are going to be another go-to set of dies.  Love the little dots around the edges.

The black and white DSP is a Sale-A-Bration choice (during Sale-A-Bration/Jan-Feb)  when you place a qualifying order you can choose a free gift).  It is called Softly Stippled and it coordinates with the Stippled Roses bundle.  There is  even more coordination between the Jan-April Mini and the Sale-A-Bration catalogs.  This DSP is also versatile enough that it can be used with other stamp sets as well.  The new mini and SAB both go live on Janaury 4th!.


Inside there is a spot to place a gift card.  The card base is 4-1/4" x 11" and scored at 2-1/4", 5-1/2".  A half circle was punched out to make it easier to access the card.  Both of the sentiments are from the Circle Sayings stamp set.  Next to the Happy Birthday sentiment is an Adhesive-Backed Sparkle Gem.

Be sure to check out all the ideas on the hop!  If you are interested in even more birthday card ideas we have tutorial full of birthday ideas.  This is the card I made for the tutorial.  You can receive the tutorial when you shop with me HERE or you can purchase it for $15.


Thanks for stopping by and have fun visiting all the stops on the hop!

A beautiful card that really shows off this brand new set well. The hidden gift card compartment is a real bonus. :-)
