Right at Home July Release Blog Hop



Hi there! Today I'm participating in Right at Home's blog hop to celebrate its July release. RAH is giving away two of the new sets from the comments on this blog hop.  You can get all the information about the release here.  And, you can see the release in the shop here.


I used the new Banner Alphabet set (on the left above) to make a soft, feminine birthday card, perfect for a pink and purple loving little girl. I love how each banner already includes the letters, numbers, etc. Because the stamps are solid, I was worried that I might not get a smooth image, but as you can see, I got terrific coverage (I used Altenew inks), and I did not use the MISTI.


  • Stamped balloons and strings from Right at Home's Let's Party May kit with pale gray ink onto white cardstock.
  • Colored the balloons with a Copic marker.
  • Stamped the banners as shown in gray ink. Punched holes in the banner and embroidered the banners with purple embroidery floss.
  • Stamped the letters and hand cut.
  • Adhered the letters and the bow.
  • Adhered the stitched panel onto an A2 white card with foam dimensional tape.

Terrific idea to use stitching for your banner!!

Joan B said...

thanks Teresa. One of the nice things about it is that the banners are relatively narrow, and therefore, easy to make long words on a card.

Finally an alpha set I would use! Too many times I see alpha sets and I even bought a couple thinking I could stamp them on banners, but they inevitably don't fit. THIS I would actually USE :-) Love the card, btw! Super cute background! Love that you hand stitched the banner line too!!!
