Celebrate Friends Stamp of Approval Blog Hop Day Two!

Hi! Welcome to Day Two of the Celebrate Friends Stamp of Approval Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from Karen's blog! We are giving away some gift certificates, so make sure to hop along and comment on each blog to increase your chances of winning!



Who doesn't love cupcakes? With the new I Eat Cake stamp set, you can build all kinds of cupcakes and sweet treats.  This is perfect for so many occasions! Plus, how great is that Scattered Circles stencil???




On this card, I used I Eat Cake Stamp Set, Scattered Circles Stencil, Party Dress Ink, All That Jazz Ink, Midnight Ink, and Shea Butter Ink.

Next, I tried to keep this card very muted.  I felt like since it was tea-themed, it should be more refined.  I used the new Cuppa Tea stamp set.  Did you know there is also a coffee version coming, too?! I can't decide which set is cuter! I created the ruffles using the Lace Border die.


I used Cuppa Tea Stamp Set, Lace Border Die, Peppermint Scrub Ink, Black Jack Ink, and Sand Dunes Cardstock in this card.

Finally, my last card for today, I wanted like a party! I used the Woo Hoo stamp set and the Celebrate die.  The Woo Hoo set is fabulous; there are sooo many different sentiments and images on it.  I stamped the confetti over and over again in different inks to make it look like it was falling from the ceiling!


For this card, I used the Woo Hoo Stamp Set, Celebrate Die, It's A Girl Ink, All That Jazz Ink, Lime Rickey Ink, and Party Dress Ink.

Next up is the amazing Melissa Miller! GOOD LUCK and make sure to hop around tomorrow, too!

  14. I love the celebrate card, so cute. I wish I had the Party without cake is just a meeting now. My granddaughter insisted on coming to a Tastefully simple party when she was about four and was so disappointed there was not cake. She said then this is not a party it;s just a bunch of people spending money, she'll be 15 Wednesday and has never lived that down.
