My Inky Friends Hidden Gems Blog Hop

Welcome to the Lily Ink Pad stop of the My Inky Friends Hidden Gems Blog Hop where we are featuring stamp sets we think are "hidden gems" from the Annual Catalog. I've chosen projects using Five For All Stamp Set.  But, first, did you come from Shelley's projects featuring Sprinkles of Life? I love that set and am so glad Stampin' Up! kept it around an extra year! If you are hopping backwards, you came from Cindy's Birthday Blossoms blog post. Birthdays all around!

My first project features the sentiment as a focal point. 

"Happy Birthday to an equally overqualified and underpaid coworker....We have a lot in common." A funny card for a fun coworker! The bonus is this card is a quick and easy! Perfect for busy winter days! I used the Picture Perfect Designer Series paper for a background and added some bling in the form of Tutti Frutti Sequins and Myths and Magic Glimmer Paper. I also used the Ticket Tear Punch to create my own paper ribbon. 

Next up, is a card that uses the Tutti Frutti Cards and Envelopes, which are a FREE Sale-a-bration item:

The card front says, "Is this the birthday when you start asking Life's Big Questions?"... and the inside says, "like WHY did I walk into this room?" To be cheeky, I used the question mark from the Letters for You Photopolymer Stamp set in Lemon Lime Twist, Pool Party, and Island Indigo. 

My final card uses a sentiment from the Five for all set for the inside saying of the card. The front is other stamps!

I used the sneakers from Epic Celebrations as my focal point and added some fun with the Bubbles and Fizz Designer Series Paper punched out with the Starburst Punch. I added some Basics Pack 3 Washi tape and some background stamping fun. The inside matches along with the sentiment: Happy Birthday to a Funny, Beautiful, and Smart person. I love this combination!

Well, that's what I have for you! I hope you enjoy my stop and likewise enjoy the rest of the hop! Click Next to visit Cindy's Birthday Blossoms or previous to visit Shelley's Sprinkles of Life!


Happy Stamping!



  1. What fun cards, Sara! I really like how you showed the versatility of the sentiments with different styles of birthday cards.

  2. Sara, I love ALL of these, but the life's big question card just takes the cake because it made me snort. LOL!

  3. Your cards are so fun! The bright colors that I adore and the sassy saying are perfect. I LOVE the life's big questions. Using the ticket border on both sides to create a paper tape is genius!

  4. Sara, These are fantastic! I love the Life's Questions card! Can't get enough of those Tutti Frutti card bases!

  5. WOW Sara. I love all your cards. Stunning.

  6. I am so glad you picked this sentiment set, it is one of the first sets I got out of this catalog because it is so awesome! You did a fab job highlighting it too :)

  7. The Life's Questions card is the BEST! I love it. I'm not sure how I missed the ticket tear punch. Where I have I been?? So happy to know that this exists and now I need it. Lol!
