Welcome! Its Inkin’ Krew Blog hop day! This months theme is ”Happy Birthday” and I made a card using the Lovely and Lasting Stamp set/ Punch Bundle from the new Annual Catalog.

The designer series paper I used for this card is from the Perfectly Penciled pack and is set off by the Rose Gold Specialty paper. This pack comes with sheets in matte, shiny, and iridescent rose gold. I used the shiny for this card.

As usual when I have a tricky time coming up with a card layout, I was cruising Pinterest and I found a card similar to this posted by If you have trouble with inspiration sometimes, check Pinterest and search the stampset you are using, or the paper you love, and check out whats there! Most of the time I find something I like and tweak it a little bit.

Here’s a little tip/trick for you. To save paper and frustration, I use my grid paper to help line up my sentiments so they stamp straight. I also took one of the smaller stylish shapes dies and cut it down the middle. Since the punched shape is large enough that you don’t see whats behind it, you can make it whatever length you need!

I hope you enjoyed my card today, the full recipe is below with card-stock cuts/measurements and all the products I used. I know you will also love what the rest of the Krew created too!
