Build a Birthday Card: Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Hello my friends! Thank you so much for visiting me today. Welcome to the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! We've got lots of fabulous things to share with you using products from the NEW Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue (released June 2nd). So sit back, relax, and hop around the world with me to visit my friends. 

But before I send you on your way, let's chat a little about the card I have to share with you. The new Build a Birthday stamp set has some awesome images in it, but my favourites are these little strips that are reminiscent of washi tape. I stamped a couple in Watermelon Wonder, Cucumber Crush, and Black. And let's talk about that Bow Builder Punch. Is it not the cutest!?!? 
I added a little pizzazz to my card by heat embossing the sentiment with silver embossing powder. That cute little embossed scallop piece is actually the top of a cake stand that is in this stamp set too. 
I have some more very exciting news to share with you. Last night I placed the order that has earned me the Stampin' Up! Grand Vacation - an all expenses paid Mediterranean Cruise! I'm not going to lie, I totally cried when I hit the submit button on the order. I'm over the moon excited and I have all of my customers and Inkin' Elite Team members to thank. You all mean the world to me. Thank you so much. 

Now hop across the ocean and go pay a visit to my friend Barbara.
Happy Stampin'
