SOS # 222 - Happy (Oldest) Birthday!

This week the SHOPPING OUR STASH crew want to see your very oldest birthday supply (a stamp, paper...whatever).

I had this one all planned out, going to use my Itty Bitty Birthday stamp, one of the very first stamp sets I bought from SU....ages ago...and the little happy birthday stamps fits perfectly in the word window punch....also something I bought ages ago from SU.

Well I still have the word window punch...but no Itty Bitty Birthday stamp set. I must have sold it last summer when I was purging a lot of my stamping supplies that I wasn't using...figures....so back to the drawing board!

I found this sketch HERE without realizing it was the same page I got another sketch from recently lol turns out she has a lot of sketches that I like...no wonder I keep going back!!

Anyway, here is the sketch I started with:

And here's what I made:

It's getting so dark so early, I had to take this one in my craft room. The camera on my new phone (Samsung S6) is sooooo much better than my old Blackberry Z10!

Anyway, my "oldest" birthday thing is still the stamp set, it's "Happy Everything" from Lawn Fawn and it's my go to occasion stamp set and I've had it for years.

Shite I used to make this card:

  • White cardstock (Fireworx)
  • 1" circle punch (SU)
  • Color Vibe Bolds design paper Simple Stories)
  • Tuxedo Black ink (Memento)
  • Fishtail & Banner die set (Your Next Stamp)
Want to play along? We'd love for you to join us! Check out the SHOPPING OUR STASH BLOG for all the details on the challenge and while you are there show the rest of the crew some crafty lovin!
