Stampin’ Creative Birthday Bonanza Global Blog Hop

Hello from your friendly Kiwi, & welcome to September’s Stampin’ Creative Global Blog Hop. 

Our Design Team is made up of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from throughout the world and we love blogging together each month to share new Creative projects with you all. You’re currently with Jackie Noble – aka CreativeJax – in Porirua, New Zealand.

This month’s theme is “Birthday Bonanza” and we are all excited to share some birthday love!

When I read “bonanza” – I decided that deserved more than just ONE project!

 Project 1 – Children’s Monster Card (Boo to You)

I love looking for alternative uses for stamp sets and other products – especially ones themed for occasions not observed here in New Zealand. Unfortunately, Halloween isn’t really done here – a shame as I loved getting into the spirit when we lived in Canada. Those monsters in Boo to You were crying out to me to be used in children’s birthday cards!

Nature’s Beauty is Stampin’ Up!’s Make a Difference stamp set – which means the company donates a portion of the sale proceeds to nominated organisations supporting Mental Health. In New Zealand, they will donate $NZ4.50 to the Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand for every set sold. It is Mental Health Awareness Week in New Zealand this week – a perfect time to highlight this versatile set.

    Thanks Gina. I think the monster is my favourite too – I mean – how can anyone resist googly eyes!

    • Jackie on September 27, 2019 at 8:24 am

    Thanks Julie! I sometimes stamp on ribbon with Stazon so thought I’d try the Delicata Inks — pleased how it turned out. Some ribbon is better for this technique than others

    Thanks Eimear! It’s my Dad’s birthday next month – so it just might be heading his way! 🙂

  1. wow you have been busy – I love all 3 of your cards, but I think the little monster card is my favourite!

  2. Three cards! And there are all so different! I love the idea of stamping on ribbon! Well done!

    What a great selection of cards! And a fun way to send greetings to a silver fox!
