Today’s post is a fun one using retired Stampin Up products. It features the So Hoppy Together stamp set. The background is split between the Dot to Dot Textured Folder and a strip of the now retired Animal Expedition DSP.

For today’s card I created a monochromatic background using various shades of Stampin Up cardstock and textured them with the soon to be retired Dot to Dot Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #148533. Used the retired Oh Hoppy Day and coordinating Hop Around Framelits for the frog and lily pad. The Stitched Shapes circle anchors the frog. The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings #146667 stamp set. For the tongue I simply cut a thin strip of Poppy Parade cardstock and rolled the end to catch the stamped fly.
As I was clearing out my craft studio purging my stash I decided that if I kept a stamp set I had to use it or it would get discarded next go round. So I have committed that I will use my old stuff along with current stuff. Today’s card is the first card I did and it features a stamp the Simple Birthday Thanks stamp set from Stampin Up 2008 catalog to make the cupcake. I added embossing paste to the icing and pearls colored with Copic markers for sprinkles. The cupcake wrapper is from the 2018-2020 In color DSP paper stack #146963 and the sentiment is from the retired Hello Cupcake stamp set. For the textured layer I used the soon to be retiring Dot to Dot Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #148533.
Happy St Patricks Day! It is definitely a lucky day because I am posting 2 posts today. One in the AM and another in the PM. This card is a stepped up version of the St.Patty’s day cards I made this year and also used it as birthday cards for my uncle and a friend that have St. Patricks Day birthdays! For the card on the left, I did not texture the base layer with the Dot to Dot Texture Impressions Embossing Folder #148533 or with the Whisper White Flax ribbon #148764. The rest of the cards are the same. I used the Botanical Butterfly DSP #149622 which is free right now with a qualifying order from Stampin Up and cut each piece with the Rectangle Stitched Framelits #148551. I made the Shamrock using the heart from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits #148527 and pieced them on a Stitched Shape Framelits #145372. The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings #146667 stamp set.
