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. 

So today all the RI Rock Stars are 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. 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 to at  be eligible for the blog candy. 

I created a little quartet of note cards using each of the images included in the set along with appropriate (or, maybe not so "appropriate") sentiments for each.  I kept them nice and CAS to really let the stamps shine.  Here are my cards:

 First up, the fun outhouse image:
 This one is going to be a belated birthday card. : )  I'm always in need of those, as I often send my cards out late (just prolonging the celebration, right?)  Next up might be my favorite image of the set:
 How can a plunger be cute?  I don't know, but I sure think this one is fun.   The "heard you're taking the plunge" is actually one sentiment but I masked it so I could stamp it above and below the image just like I did with the other cards.
 Inside I added two more of the mix and match sentiments to finish off the theme of the card.
 I really just love the toilet paper roll image, too.  I'm pretty sure I have never seen one in any other stamp set.  Ever.  Just saying!
 I combined several sentiments from the set to create this one sentiment.  The "congrats" is part of a "congrats on your" sentiment; I masked the rest so I was left with only "congrats".  Then I added "you're" and used a third sentiment for "on a roll!"  The font Wendy chose for this set is perfect as you don't have to worry about getting the sentiments exactly straight!
And last, but not least, we have the toilet:
 Oh, yeah, I just had to make mine pink.  When my husband and I moved into our house, we had one of those baby blue toilets in our bathroom.  Anybody remember those?  Still have one? . . .  Anyway, that's what I was thinking of when I made this pink one.  Kind of makes it perfect for cheering up a girlfriend.  You could easily make it blue for a guy, or, I guess, just keep it white and boring. : )  
I couldn't resist making just one more!  The toilet paper roll image was just begging to be made into a fun background.

Ok, that was a lot of pictures and I know you are anxious to be on your way, so here you go:

My letter for you is
