This Young Vermillion stamp retired at the end of May 2012 from Stampin' Up! but this little bird is on my list of stamps to use. The current stamp set, Made For You, contains this simple happy birthday image.
I paired a retired, Stampin' Up! designer series paper with the current cardstocks soft suede, night of navy, bashful blue and whisper white. Soft suede ink created the bird image while a night of navy ink refill applied with an Aqua Painter created the blue breast. Night of navy also inked the happy birthday stamp.

After being a demonstrator for so many years, I have accumulated plenty of supplies (and stamps)! My cabinet still protects cardstock that was retired in 2005 during a color renovation. A few of life's events have prevented me from focusing my energy on getting these supplies used up, so I have decided to try my best to use it up this fall. This card features the current stamp set "Curly Cute" words with a flower from a retired hostess set all mounted on top of green galore and designer series paper from years ago. It is amazing how the current Melon Mambo ink looks great with this designer series paper. This paper has been around so long that it is not even double-sided.
