TECC55: Sweet on You with Cherries!!


I'm in love...with more than just my DH, and my stamps, and my fur kids, and my niece & nephew...I'm in love with the new SU! Rockabilly Specialty designer paper!! Taylor's sketch this week lends itself to using multiple papers - so check 'em out - aren't they yummy? Since I wanted to make just a few more Valentine's cards {although I'm ready to move on to the next holiday *wink*} - I reached for A Year of Sweets 1 and ommitted the hearts, clouds & cupid tofeature the sweet cuppie couple. I also had to use my one of my favorite techniques, paper-piecing!! The sentiment is from a Year of Sweet Sentiments. I decided to limit my embellishments to keep the cuppies & designer paper the main focus but decided to add a red heart brad from the Valentine's key ingredients to finish off my 'sweet' card. p.s. - be sure to click on the card so you can see the addition of eyelashes on the girl cuppie!

Here is Taylor’s sketch so you can play along too!! You can be eligible to win Cupcake Sampler Honors & be featured on Taylor’s blog using the next Cupcake Friday Sketch! You’re not required to use cupcakes on your sketch, but if you got ‘em why not use ‘em?? You can create something other than a card but try to keep as close to the sketch as possible. If you’re uploading to Splitcoast, please use keyword TECC55. Leave a comment on Taylor’s post with a link to your blogpost or gallery link so she can check it out! You must have your creation uploaded by Monday, February 16 at 10:00 a.m. CST to be eligible for the featured cupcake sampler honors. Lastly, be sure to have FUN creating!

Today’s Featured Cupcake Sampler is Jodi Collins! Be sure to stop by her blog & see what sweetness she has for us today!

Since I love this sketch & this paper so much and thought it would ROCK with my BC Dzyns Hey Chica set by My Favorite Things, I made another card!! I just adore it! I also decided to keep the embellishments to a minimum so my chica takes center stage!

Check her out close-up. I love her sparkly green eye shadow & glistening red lipstick! Do you like her silver & red rhinestone earring?

Hope y'all have a SWEET Friday & Happy Valentine's Day tomorrow!
