Sweet Sunday Wishes - SSSC184

I made this card last week but have been super busy at work and just haven't had the time or energy to post when I get home :(  

This is for my sweet friend Vicky.  It was her birthday last week and she has a wall of my cards in her office - makes me smile each time I visit her.  I paper pieced this sweet little PI, even her collar! and gave her shoes several coats of clear glaze pen to make them shine.

I did a little stamping on the inside too.  Here are the copics I used:

I do hope work settles down soon - I miss my stamping time.  Oh, the sketch is the SSSC184 and I really liked it.


Stamps:  PI Chrysanthemum, PI Birthday Girl (for the sentiment)
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo black ink, copics
Paper: Retired TE Project Pantry Summertime
Other:  Fishtail Flags Stax die-namics, Fishtail Flags Layers die-namics, circle and scallop circle nesties, Perfect Polkadots embossing folder, clear glaze pen, tiny twinkles

Bellariffic Friday - Kraft or Krafty?

Finally Friday and this week's Bellariffic Friday theme is Kraft - use kraft coloured paper, ribbon, embellishment, ink, anything kraft coloured on your card.  I was a bit "krafty" with the use of my kraft :)  I just used it as the base of my card and on the scallop border and die-cut image.....that counts, right?

This was a special order card for Christal's Mum.  It was her birthday this week and Christal picked the image, told me the colour of her Mum's hair, glasses and the rest was up to me.  I've never met her Mum so I'm hoping I did her justice with her redish highlights and her pretty sparkly green glasses which I added some crystal effects to, to make them pop.  Speaking of pop, I fussy cut Addytude out and popped her up for some dimension.

For the inside I used my oh so loved Fishtail Flags again and added the sentiment that comes with the image - love that.  I added a separate Happy Birthday below.

Here are the copics I used.  Oh, I used the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 183 (SSSC183) again - loved that sketch!

Happy Birthday Colleen!

Sweet Sunday Secretary - SSSC183

The next few weeks.....well months really.....are going to be very busy at work as we pack up and move to our new building.  It's exciting and stressful all at the same time.  I made this for my co-worker, Christal, to thank her for all her hard work so far and in the weeks to come!  I used Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge from last Sunday (SSSC183).

The stamp set is called "Confidential" from There She Goes and it has so many funny sentiments to choose from.  One of my favourites is "My job is so confidential, I don't even know what I'm doing" :)  But the sentiment I chose for the inside seemed more fitting for us at the moment.  I'll be glad when the move is over and we're all settled in - look how neat and tidy her desk is!

The copics I used are shown below. 


Stamps:  Confidential
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo black ink, copics
Paper:  SU retired pattern paper, SU Lovely Lilac
Other:  Simply Scallops die-namic, tiny twinkles, SU Certainly Celery satin ribbon, bow easy

Bellariffic Friday - Sketch 9

Confession....I didn't follow this sketch exactly.  Some of my layers are a bit short and a bit long, but that's the fun of a sketch - it's just a starting point.  I made this for a co-worker and liked the bright fun colours.  I even tried to get the same highlights that she has in her hair!

I have had a lot of use from this image but I think Execubella has taken "early retirement" - can't find her on the Stamping Bella website :)

Those are the copics I used.  Have a great weekend.


Stamps:  Execubella
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo black ink, copics
Paper:  Retired TE KI kit
Other:  Ribbon, Brads, Tiny Twinkles, SU Perfect Polkadots embossing folder

PI Sweetness - MFTWSC122

Being as I flipped last week's MFTWSC I decided to leave things alone for this week (MFTWSC122) - that and the fact that it's a pretty sweet sketch as it is!

It's a well known fact that I love sweets and cotton candy is no exception :) 

I added some stickles to the cotton candy -mmm, I can almost taste it now! Her t-shirt is paper pieced and I added several coats of clear glaze pen to her shoes along with two tiny twinkles.  A sweet little button flower finishes it off.

My fav Fishtail Flags made another appearance on the inside.  Here are the copics I used.


Stamps:  PI Sweet Greetings
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo black ink, copics
Paper:  All from my scrap bin (slowly working my way through it!)
Other:  Fishtail Flags Stax die-namics, Pretty Posies die-namics, ribbon, button, Star Dust stickles, clear glaze pen, tiny twinkles, SU Sizzlits Big Paper Doily
