Today’s post is a simple yet stunning card featuring the Stampin Up Stitched Starts Dies #150653 to create a masculine birthday card in a hurry. The sentiment is from the retired Hello Cupcake Stampin Up stamp set.

I wanted to make a bright and fun card for my sisters 50th birthday and I think I succeeded. I used the now retired Hello Cupcake stamp set and the coordinating Cupcake framelits to make this card. I started out with a unique fun fold card using the soon to be retiring How Sweet It is DSP and then began layering the cupcakes one on top of the other to make a big cupcake!
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.
I made this birthday sampler for my friend Karen who loves celebrating birthdays even more than me. She is an avid decorator and today is her birthday. This sampler fits in a 12×12 Shadow box and was based on the How Sweet It Is #148568 DSP from Stampin Up. This DSP paper along with all the other DSP and other Stampin Up products will be retiring on June 3rd. I also used the Birthday Cheer #148604 , Hello Cupcake (retired) Itty Bitty Greetings #148604 stamp sets.
Todays card is way cuter in person than in the photos. It is a sweet birthday card using all retired products from the recent Sale-a-Bration from Stampin Up. This card is a window card I created using the Cupcake Framelits. I added a piece of Vellum behind the window and the foil pedestal to the card front. The inside of the card revealed the cupcake and sentiment stamped from the Hello Cupcake stamp set.
When I saw this treat box on fellow demonstrator Erica Cerwin’s facebook live I knew I had to recreate it. The worst part is that I could not find the Hostess limited edition Mint Chocolate cupcakes in 3 counties in Central Ohio grocery stores so I ended up using the traditional chocolate cupcakes. The box is made with a pull out drawer to hold the cupcake. The leprechaun is pieced using Stampin Up punches and the Hello Cupcake #149714 Sale-a-Bration stamp set and the sold out Call Me Cupcake Framelits. The background DSP is from the Happiness Blooms #148795 Paper collection and the sentiment is from the Amazing Life #148750 Stampin Up set.
I made the leprechaun as a plant stick for a Shamrock plant which turned out super cute too!
