A Little Bit of This, A Little Bit of That...

I had a very varied weekend stamping-wise, first with the Simply Sassy girl in the post below, then with Mo Manning's adorable "Mummu" and with one of the new (digi) stamps from CC Designs, Sweetheart Birgitta. Coupled with a request from a colleague to make a retirement card and the new Double Dutch challenge which is to create a WOW (White On White) card/creation I had my work cut out for me :D.


Don't know where I got these embossed papers/vellums from, this is one of the "treasures" I unearthed while cleaning out my craft room this weekend, and I'm glad I did! Using only one colour on a card is a challenge, so some embossing was definitely called for! This is the first time I've made a WOW card, and it won't be the last: it was easier than I expected and I think the card turned out very stylish (if you don't count the uber-adorably cute Birgitta that is ;o))


Isn't Mummu a character! I imagine she's walking away, waving at her colleagues and her boss and glad to be retiring at last, so she can spend time with her doting husband and lovely grandchildren ;o)

Materials
Stamps: CC Designs "Sweetheart Birgitta" and Mo's Digital Pencil "Mummu"
Paper: BBP white, embossed paper and vellum; Pink Paislee "Queen Bee"
Embellishments: adhesive pearls by Kars and Kaisercraft
Tools: QuicKutz dies flower and swirls; EK Success Retro Flower punches
Copic Markers:
E00, E51, E93, E21 (skin and cheeks); E50, E51, E53, Y28 (hair); R27, R29 (Birgitta's dress); W1, W3, W5 (Birgitta's tights/wings and Mummu's skirt/shoes); Y00, G00 (Mummu's blouse)

That's all she wrote for now, I'm going to watch America's Next Top Model and mentally prepare myself for work tomorrow ;o). Thank you for stopping by!

Hugs,
Erica
