Mint Macaron! It was introduced as an In Color in 2015 and retired briefly last year. It's now found a new home in the Subtles family of Stampin' Up! colors. Today it's being paired with Cajun Craze and Soft Suede for our Thursday Challenge, but check out some other great color suggestions for Mint Macaron.

Have a little cake with that Stamparatus...
Today's card uses the Stampin' Up! Icing on the cake set - it's not new, but I'm so happy it's returned in this years Annual Catalog. I also heavily used the Stamparatus. This tool allows for perfect placement of your clear or cling rubber stamps. I have to admit, it took me a while to fall in love with the Stamparatus. I've tried other brands, and I just never quite got the feel for it. The beauty of the Stamparatus is the ability to remove the clear plates, so you can flip and maneuver your stamps to get your image exactly where you want before committing the ink to paper. And if your ink needs a little more attention, you can restamp without worries of shadow images.
See how the roses look now? I decided to cut them out later, but you can still get the idea. Check out also how I can use the Stamparatus to line up my greeting exactly!
Boom! The final card! (Ignore the giant smudge. It's not really there) :D
PS - Lucy, the birthday girl says Hello!
