A mix of WPlus9 Sweets and Treats and some Secretary Cards

Hello all!! I hope this Tuesday is treating you well.

I myself am fabulous but am so looking forward to June 16th, which is the last day of school and work for me for the summer. The kids are getting antsy for it all to be done and some have already checked out. I am ready for nice weather as there really has not been a spring here. Gray days, rain and temps in the 40's to 50's have been the norm. We don't even have full leaves on the trees yet!

Today I am going to show you three cards I created for some co-workers. One is a birthday card for a girl who is just the sweetest thing. She is always so happy and positive. We used to have lunch together every day but her schedule was switched so I don't see her much anymore. I just had to make her a card for her birthday, though.

I used WPlus's Sweets and Treats stamps and dies for this card. I liked the neutral kraft background with the aqua and yellow so I chose to make the card base out of kraft card stock. I embossed around the edge to add a little decorative touch.

The yellow banner is a sticker and it is placed over a piece of aqua washi tape. I die cut a vellum oval as a frame for the cup cake.

I colored the cup cake itself with Copic Markers and added some blue Stickles for the "sprinkles." The top of the flag is a pin that I had that I cut down to a smaller size and stuck under the cupcake.

I LOVE how this card came out and will definitely be using this design again.


The next two cards I made for the two secretaries in our office for Secretaries Day. I created them so that a bunch of us could sign them and give them to the two women with some gifts. I felt bad because we gave them these gifts late because we didn't know when it was.

This first card I stamped the background paper with the pink polka dots. I then layered die cut, stamped images over it. It is very  simple but effective. All stamps, with the exception of one, was from Paper Trey Ink.

I added some sparkle on the heart in the middle of the circle and a few pink sequins for an added touch. I drew in the phone cord but wasn't really loving it. I did something a little bit different for the second card.

I used the exact same card design for the second card but stepped it up a bit. I mixed a few sentiment stamps to create the sentiment. I also used some white covered wire to make the phone cord.

A much cuter look if I do say so myself!!

I apologize for some of the photos. I did an auto color in Photoshop so I could upload the pictures and didn't realize how bad they were. Oops!

Thank you for stopping by!! Have a fabulous day!
