Flopsey Sketch

Isn't this new Flopsey with Flowers so CUTE!! It was released this past Wednesday by My Favorite Things and it is ADORABLE!! I didn't have it in time to preview with the release, so as soon as I got it, I decided it would be the first stamp I used from the new releases. I decided to use it with this weeks MFT Sketch Challenge. I stamped Flopsey on Gina K. White with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. He was then colored with my Copics and cut out. I popped him up on another piece of Gina K. White and layered that with Riding Hood Red and Kiwi Kiss cardstock. The base is the same colors, but the white was run through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder. The DP is from the SU Bella Rose pack. My sentiment was stamped on Gina K. white also and then punched out using my SU large oval punch. I then layered it on my circles that were punched out with my SU circle punches. The brads and ribbon are both from SU.
Have you been keeping up with the MFT Idol competition? We are down to 7 and let me tell you, the competition is FIERCE!! Seriously, I have a real fear that one or more of these girls are going to steal my spot...they are SERIOUSLY rockin' the competition!! Each week there is a voting poll on SCS in the Member Company forum, so be sure to go vote!! The next time to vote is April 7th at 10pmEST. Good luck to all the remaining contestants!!

Inspirational Cupcakes

Today's Inspiration Challenge, was to chose something from the French Bull website to be inspired by. I chose these plates, mainly because I loved the colors and the patterns. Since I haven't had hardly any stamping time this week, I decided to pair this challenge with this week's Cupcake Sketch and the Limited Supplies challenge. I stamped my SUPAH cute image from the Taylored Expressions Sweet Spring set on Gina K. White with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I then colored it in with my Copic markers and cut and embossed it with my Cuttlebug and Circle Nesties. The DP is from the Pink Flamingo DSP from SU. My one CS color, as per the LSC, is Tempting Turquoise. I used my three embellishments-brads, ribbons, and spiral clips. Well, that is it for me now!! I need to get to bed or I am not going to be able to get up in the morning!!Thanks for stopping by!!
