I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Sending Big Hugs


Late night stamping resulted in a card for today's Sweet Sunday Sketch # 224. I saw this week's sketch after Karen posted it to FB yesterday evening and decided to use it to make a birthday card for a friend who lives far away on the east coast in Mass.

I received my latest order from MFT on Thursday with this cute new PI set.

I stamped her with my new Black Licorice Hybrid ink pad, (love the way it stamps, by the way) then colored her with Copics. I paper pieced her dress as you can see. I added pink Stickles to the heart in her hair and Crystal Effects to her shoes to make them look like patent leather. Also in my new order, the Die-namics Pierced Fishtail Flags dies. Of course, I needed to use them! I cut the image out with my square Nesties. I didn't want to cover up her legs with the horizontal element, so I just added the enamel hearts and dots. The sentiment from the stamp set is stamped with the Hybrid ink.

Here's the inside:

The birthday sentiment is from a SU set.
