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.
