May Greek Isles Blog Hop – Relaxed Birthday Wishes for a Good Man

Greek Isles Incentive Trip Achievers Blog HopThose hopping today are all Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators from all around the world who have met the requirements, and earned the amazing 2019  Stampin’ Up! Incentive trip – while everyone can try,  only a limited number of demos (less than 1% of all demonstrators) reach the level required to earn the trip each year. Of the about 50,000 demonstrators from throughout the world 445 earned this particular trip.

And it is getting very close! The Greek Isles Cruise departs from Rome on 7th July, but Roy and I depart New Zealand on the 25th June as we are holidaying in Italy before the trip!


As Achieving Demonstrators, we hop together once a month to show you ideas and designs using “current” Stampin’ Up!® products. Our May Hop is featuring sneak peeks from the new 2019/2020 catalogue – so technically these products will be current on 4th June. Though of course demonstrators get early access to a selection of the products! That could be you too!

My Blog Hop Project is hubby Roy’s Birthday card from last week!

Project – Relaxing Birthday wishes:

Good Man Relaxed Birthday

I thought the image from the new A Good Man stamp set was perfect for Roy’s Birthday as we look forward to our trip away – hopefully he won’t be the only one lounging on a deck chair!

The card base is one of the new 2019-2021 InColors – Pretty Peacock. This colour is similar to the retiring Tranquil Tide – but much bluer. I also used Pretty Peacock to watercolour the shirt and hat of the image, which I had stamped in Stazon as I knew I was going to be water colouring. Here’s a close-up of the coloured image.

Isn’t that stitched edge cute! That was made using one of the Stitched Nested Labels Dies. This set of dies has 8 hexagonal shaped dies as well as one straight edged. They all have stitching on either side of the cutting line so not only can you use the hexagon shaped labels, you can use the resulting negative shape once the label has been used. For my card, I trimmed the “peak” off one edge to make a banner.

I chose this particular Designer Series Paper (DSP) for Roy’s card as he is an engineer and I decided the instruments would be a perfect contrast to the relaxed image.

You can see a little strip of DSP on the inside of the card too!
