TECC57 Sweet Sundae Birthday

February 27th, 2009

tecc57-close-up-jami-custom-2.jpgWhat a week it’s been!  I’m so glad to be back here with all of you!  I’ve been sick with a bad cold/flu type thing – finally on the upswing and feeling better.  Then Wednesday it seemed our computer had died.  Fortunately it turned out to just be the monitor.  We now have the hugest flat screen monitor I’ve ever seen – 23.6″ of viewing space.  And it was cheaper than the still-large-but-but-slightly-smaller monitor we had planned to purchase.  Gotta love Costco!

Anyway – I haven’t stamped much in the past week or so.  I didn’t even really feel like stamping last night, but I’m so glad I had Taylor’s sketch and the need for a belated birthday card for a sweet friend to motivate me.  I had such fun with this card.  The TECC this week is such an easy sketch to work with – I hope you’ll play along with us!

Ever since I got the SU Hostess set Goody Goody Gumdrops I’ve been wanting to make a card with this ice cream sundae image.  I just think it’s so cute!  I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on white Shimmer cardstock and colored it with Copics.  Then I covered the ice cream with white Liquid Applique and puffed it up with my heat gun.  Once it was puffy and cool, I colored it with pink shimmery chalk.  The cherry was stamped a second time and cut out and raised up on double thick foam tape and covered with Crystal Effects.


The dp is SU Raspberry Tart.  I’ve been using it a ton lately – it’s so fun!  Cardstock colors are Rose Red and Kiwi Kiss.  Sentiment is from the Taylored Expressions SASI set A Year of Sweet Sentiments.  It’s a tiny bit crooked, but I thought it looked pretty good considering the sentiment was a total afterthought – after the Crystal Effects, Liquid Applique, brads and everything!  I added some hand drawn doodles and some white faux stitching and the dark pink brads that coordinate with the dp perfectly are from TE.  I love those brads – nice glossy finish and so many pretty colors!

 And now it’s time to see what the rest of the Cupcake Crew has cooked up this week.tecc57-inside-feb-09-jami-custom.jpg

    I never got around to sharing my class samples with you so I hope to have some time over the weekend to do that.  I’m coordinating a wedding reception at church tomorrow though (my first one!) – so it will be a pretty full weekend!  I’ll be back when I can.  Don’t forget that next week is an exciting week with a Taylored Expressions release scheduled for the 5th and lots of sneak peeks leading up to that all week.  Lots of big news so you’ll want to stay tuned!  Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
