You Perk Me Up!

Hi everyone!  Happy Saturday!  I have another card today using the AWESOME June SFYTT and some delightful new rubbah from Stamping Bella, our fabulous sponsor this month!

I just LOVE the line of Little Peeps at Stamping Bella, and I was SO excited to get to work with the Perk Me Up Peeps!  Aren't they SO super cute?  They make my coffee lovin' heart happy for sure!

I started by stamping these cuties in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White Cardstock and I colored them, and part of the cup, with Copic Markers.  I then stamped them again onto Kraft cardstock and cut out the belly band and paper pieced it.  I also paper pieced the actual coffee cup with some of the same papers I used on my card, Dots & Stripes Candy Shoppe from Echo Park Papers (the pink and orange) and I also used Dots & Stripes Metropolitan from Echo Park Papers (the green).  YUM!

The  Kraft background panel and the Hot Fudge circle panel were embossed with the Seeing Spots Embossing Folder, and the sentiment, "You Perk Me Up", which comes with these peeps (bonus!) was cut out and layered on top of cardstock cut from the two banners from the First Place Award Ribbon Die-Namics from MFT.  The border was created with the Open Bracket Border Die-Namics.  I added tons of machine stitching and an orange embellie on either side of the sentiment.

There are still a few days left to get your submission in before the end of the month!  I hope you've been playing along so you have the chance at winning the huge prize package in December!  All the deets for this month's sketch are right HERE on Jen's Blog!!
