Fun Birthday Card featuring #SweetCupcake, #Cupcakecutouts, #PaintedwithLove, #StampinUp, #SecretStamper


We had some great cards for our last challenge and hope you got to see them! Our next challenge is lots of fun and very popular in the card-making world – Tic Tac Toe! Pick “three in a row” and make a card, using one of your older stamps, with us!! I wanted to use a bundle that I couldn’t wait to get but didn’t use yet and went with the first vertical threesome: Pink, Twine, Birthday. 🙂 Sweet Cupcake came out in the 2016 Annual Catalog and is still available. It has a framelit set that coordinates with it, too! You gotta love that, right? The new Stamparatus tool that Stampin’ Up! has designed made the 3 step stamping so much easier! Using daubers, I inked up the “sweet” with the three colors of ink and popped it up with craft foam.
