ISC Blog Hop Day 1

It's here, Inspire Swap Chat’s first official blog hop. Along this journey you will be introduced to some amazing Birthday Themed projects. Hopefully you just arrived here from babyjsmom! If not, I'd like to guide you back to the beginning at Inspire Swap Chat so you can hop along, and enter to win an adorable birthday themed basket filled with goodies to make scrapbook pages or cards!

For the first day of the ISC Blog Hop I created a birthday card for my dad's birthday on the 30th of this month. Normally I make him a Halloween birthday card but this year I wanted to utilize the birthday stamp set I got by Inkadinkado. Each stamp in the set is an image with a humorous sentiment. My dad is really a big kid at heart and he loves to get funny cards. The card I created will be especially funny to those of us who actually know his parents.

I colored my card with a combo of Sharpies and Prisma color markers. I would love to have a set of copics but my children also need a college education so I have compromised. I have a set of Sharpies that I fill out with the Prisma colors to get the shading options of having lighter markers. I finished off the glasses and boots with a black glaze pen to add a little shine.

If you would like the opportunity to win a little blog candy, please leave a comment and come back for the next 2 days to leave comments on my two new projects that will be posted. I will randomly draw 2 people out of the hat to win! Be sure to check out the rest of the blog hop.

I hope you are enjoying the blog hop so far. The ISC members are so creative that I know you must be. But it is not over yet--you still have five more stops and then the final stop at Inspire Swap Chat! Next is Craftygirlfrommg. Believe me you will be happy you stopped by to see what she created. Enjoy the rest of the hop and don't forget in order to be eligible for the great prize package you will need to leave a comment on all the members blogs along with a final comment on the Inspire Swap Chat blog letting us know what your favorite project was.

  1. Great image!! I love the witty stamp sets....they work for everybody!! Have you considered purchasing the Stampin' Write markers from Stampin' Up? They're more economical than copics and yield a great result:)
