Canada Inks Up! Blog Hop - Birthday Celebrations


Welcome to the Canada Inks Up! Team Blog Hop.  Today our projects are all focused on "Birthday Celebrations"! I hope you'll take some time to check out all of the amazing projects and "hop" from blog to blog!  

For my card, I used the Bloom Where You're Planted Product Suite.  I have to admit that I wasn't sure about this suite when I first saw it, but I'm loving it!  You can create amazing cards using the Stamp Set and coordinating Dies, or you can use the stunning Designer Series Paper and add a sentiment like I did on my card.  I added a little bow with frayed tails made from the Just Jade and Gold ribbon.  I love the colour combination of Just Jade and Cinnamon Cider. What do you think?


  1. Cut Cinnamon Cider cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and fold in half to form card base.
  2. Cut Just Jade cardstock 4" x 5 1/4" and adhere to card base using Stampin' Seal.
  3. Cut Designer Series Paper 3 3/4" x 5" and adhere to card base using Stampin' Seal.
  4. Cut Just Jade cardstock 1" x 4"
  5. Cut Basic White cardstock 3/4" x 4"
  6. Stamp sentiment on Basic White piece using Cinnamon Cider ink - stamp in the right hand side of the piece.
  7. Adhere to the Just Jade piece using Stampin' Seal.
  8. Adhere to the card base using Dimensionals about 1 1/2" from bottom
  9. Tie a small bow from ribbon and adhere to the left hand side of the sentiment piece using a Glue Dot.
  10. Use your Take Your Pick Tool to fray the tails of the bow.
  11. Cut Basic White cardstock 4" x 5 1/4"
  12. Stamp pot in bottom right corner using Cinnamon Cider ink
  13. Stamp plant using Just Jade ink
  14. Stamp sentiment using Just Jade ink
  15. Adhere to card base using Stampin' Seal.
