Sweet Sunday Hooray

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC241.

I'm adding to my stash of birthday cards with this masculine creation.


The sketch was a perfect layout for a guy card, easy and simple without too much fuss.

It's ok that I added a little sparkle though with the orange rhinestones, right? It seemed a little too plain without them.

I hope you'll play along with this week's sketch and link your creation on Karen's blog. Now it's time to hop around and see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers created.

Sweet Sunday Holidays

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC240.

I made card #9 for Project Christmas 2014 and I kept it really clean and simple, just like the sketch.


I used the Poinsettia Die-namics from MFT and let the flower take center stage.

Here's a shot of the dimension on the flower but it's still flat enough for easy mailing. Perfect!

I hope you'll play along with this week's sketch and link your creation on Karen's blog. Now it's time to hop around and see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers created.

Sweet Sunday Mini

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC239.

I have a super fun thank you card this week. The Mini Cooper dealer here has adopted me into their family after our move so I wanted to thank them for their kindness. They gave me a fantastic "Welcome to Texas" gift.


I really wanted to use an image of a Mini Cooper but I could only find a couple of digital images online and none of them were really what I was looking for. So I decided to recreate the logo instead. I'm not sure if you can see it in the photo but I even created the shadows below each horizontal line, using Steel Grey. The logo was done with Grout Grey and Basic Black.

I added shine to the letters using two coats of my clear glaze pen. The checkered background paper, which is so perfect for the motoring Mini theme, is from the Carta Bella Boy Oh Boy collection.

I hope you'll play along with this week's sketch and link your creation on Karen's blog. Now it's time to hop around and see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers created.
