Holy Crap! It's a Blog Hop!


Please join us at The House That Stamps Built for a blog hop celebrating Repeat Impressions' newest stamp series... Holy Crap! Yup, hehe... it's true... Wendy's designed a humorous collection of stamps around something she's confessed to saying a little too often.

This new stamp series starts with a large "holy crap!" sentiment which can be paired with any of the great variety of smaller words and sentiments to create a wide range of funny cards. A few theme appropriate images are also included. Please visit Repeat Impressions' online store to check out the entire Holy Crap! collection.

Today Repeat Impressions is kicking off a blog hop to showcase some of the new designs and also give you an opportunity to win the stamps!  To participate in the hop all you have to do is visit The House That Stamps Built blog and the blogs of all the Rock Stars listed there (and below.) On each blog you will find a key letter. After you collect all the letters, use the letters to create the proper word and then email it to Wendy at wendy@repeatimpressions.com to be eligible for the blog candy.


**My letter for you is C. **


I was so happy when Wendy asked me to design with this new lol stamp set from Repeat Impressions and then participate in this blog hop! I love using humor in my cards so this set is perfect for me and to put smiles on the recipient’s faces! I made two Z Fold cards to show off the funny stamps. Z Fold cards are easy and fun to make. Simply cut a card base that is 4 ¼” x 11” and a strip (or two like below) 1” x 11”. Score both at 2 ¾” and 5 ½” and then decorate. This card will fold to fit into an A2 envelope. My first Z Fold card above would make a funny congrats card with the “you’re on a roll”, “that’s fantastic”, tp and out house along with the featured “holy crap!” 

My second Z Fold card is for a friend who is my age and has a great sense of humor. I added two strips on this Z Fold card with “29…again?!”, “it’s your birthday”, “time to celebrate” and the outhouse again. I added some black gems and of course featured the lol “holy crap!” again. Here are a couple more pictures of this funny birthday card:


 You must complete the hop and email Wendy the correct word no later than 5pm eastern time on Monday, July 11th. The blog candy for this hop… an unmounted sheet of the new "Holy Crap!" stamps! Wendy will announce the winner on Tuesday, July 12th on Repeat Impressions' Facebook page so please be sure to "Like" and follow them there if you don't already.

NEXT STOP on the blog hop is my friend Kathy's blog here.

Here is the complete list of those participating in this fun blog hop. Hint- Follow the list and collect the letters in order from the top!
