It’s your birthday for the Inking Royalty Blog Hop

It's Your Birthday


Welcome to InKing Royalty’s February Blog Hop!  Stampin’ Up!’s Occasions catalog is filled with amazing products to help you celebrate birthdays in style. From festive balloons to birthday blooms, there’s something for everyone.

Today’s It’s Your Birthday Blog Hop is filled with inspiring projects that share great birthday ideas. We are excited to share what we’ve made and hope you’ll find great inspiration from our talented team members in this hop. After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.


This blog hop was perfectly timed as my calendar is heavy with upcoming birthdays, starting with my oldest daughter’s birthday. She is 27 TODAY and on the verge of making some changes in her life, and I am praying this is a great year for her.

Below is the card I made for her using the Number of Years stamp set and the coordinating Large Number Framelits Dies. The fun polka dot paper is from the MUST-HAVE Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper.

On Friday, my stepdad is celebrating his birthday. He has always been a second dad to me, and I wanted him to know that I am lucky to have him in my life.
Below is the card I made for him using the Going Global stamp set and the Going Places Designer Series Paper Stack. The inside sentiment is from the Something to Say stamp set. I topped it off with the Sunburst Thinlits Die, one of my FAVORITE items in the Occasions catalog.
I’ve made other round cards in the past and for those I used the easel back design. For this one, I decided to use a brad to connect the front and back to make it swing open.

  1. Denise – I wish I could say I planned this hop for your daughter’s birthday, but I cannot. The card is GORGEOUS! I thought something was missing from you post, and then I scrolled down to find it…the circle card. How clever! I’m so happy you participated in our blog hop today! 🙂

  2. Love, love, love the card for your daughter! Who doesn’t love sequin trim and embossing?
    The circle card is wildly creative. Might have to try that. Thanks.

  3. Your stepdad’s birthday card is spectacular! The circle shape is so unique and you incorporated all the different elements together beautifully!

  4. Denise- I just love the Number of Year stamp set and dies. You really made a great birthday card for you daughter. I am adoring how you used the sequins. And, you can always inspire me to try a new card shape. I am so very impressed with the circle card and how it opens.
