Stampin Friends May Blog Hop


Welcome to the Stampin Friends May Blog Hop! We will be hopping on the third Thursday every month, with a different theme to inspire you each time. The theme for May is “Sympathy, Thinking of You, Get Well.”

If you arrived from Bibi’s blog, thank you for continuing with the hop! If you didn’t then be sure to click on the previous button below to see what she created for us.

Do not forget to click the Next button below to check out Melissa’s great creations. If you get lost along the way, I have provided the full list of participants at the bottom of this post. PLUS, keep reading for a chance to win a bunch of new crafting gifts!

Ready to see what I created?

With the theme this month, I was trying to come up with the project first since card making isn’t much of a problem for me. I contemplated about a lot of different things to make (I try to be unique) and not to come up with what I think other crafters have created in the past. I limited myself to continue to create using the products that are retiring from Stampin’ Up! for the entire month of May.  

So I created a Get Well Basket and matching card.


The Get Well gift basket is desktop/side table size and refillable.


Gift Basket contents:
  • Mini jar filled with cough drops and a cute Feel Better tag
  • Stampin’ Up! Spearmint Lip Balm
  • Five (5) tea bags in a Cello bag with a cute There’s always time for tea tag
  • Kleenex Tissues with a DSP belly band
  • Cool Melon Lime Purell hand sanitizer



Next is the matching card to display next to the gift basket to cheer up the recipient(s). 


I created the flower as my accent piece for the bee to sit for a bit before he flies back to the hive to make honey.  The bee is fussy cut from the English Garden DSP.
