The Stamp Market February Release & 3rd Birthday Blog Hop

by - February 05, 2020



Hi everyone! I'm so excited that you came by my stop on The Stamp Market release and birthday blog hop. Can you believe The Stamp Market is turning 3?! We've got tons of inspiration for you today and I've made a special birthday card using one of the new sets from the February release. Also, please don't forget to check out the brand new STORAGE SYSTEM from The Stamp Market that I gave a sneak of at Creativation. Links are at the end to this post. Let's just get right into it!


To create this birthday card, I used the uber useful Birthday Balloons stamp and die set. Though the sentiments in this set are all birthday based, this could totally be used for so many occasions and can easily go from fun and whimsical to elegant and beautiful. I used the balloon image with some of my favorite color from the Color Crush ink collection to create a colorful birthday card for TSM.


Before we get any further, don't forget to leave a comment for your chance to win 1 of 3 $50 gift cards to The Stamp Market. Random winners will be selected from the comments left and announced February 10th on The Stamp Market blog.


Continuing on with the card details, for inks, I used Melon, Citrine, Tropic, and Fresh Pink. I love the way these colors work together and give a party vibe. For the polka dot pattern, I used the included stamp with versa mark ink and clear embossing powder. This gives the pattern without adding more colors to the palette. I added the bold Happy Birthday sentiment inside the Fresh Pink balloon. Finally, I added some of the new TSM confetti pieces for glitter and shine. 

Thanks so much for joining me today. I hope that you've gotten some inspiration for the new release. Please continue on the hop and don't forget to leave a comment for your chance to win a $50 gift card! 



One more thing before you go, any purchase $100 or over gets a FREE Jumbo Birthday die! With that, I will just leave all of these pretty links right below! Thank you, again, and I'll see you soon.
