Perk Up {April SFYTT}!

Hi everyone!  Happy Saturday!  It's the third Saturday of the month, which means I am sharing with you another sample using the fabulous April SFYTT!

You may recall that this month, the SFYTT sisters are sponsored by There She Goes, one of my most favorite stamp companies ever!

For my card today I inked up the ADORABLE Perk Up set!  When I saw this coffee mug with a mustache I knew I HAD to have this set!  I stamped the mug twice...once onto Sweet Tooth cardstock and once onto patterned paper, and then paper pieced the mug and cut it out as well.  I stamped the little face (doesn't that stache' crack you up?) and then stamped the eyes and paper pieced them as well.  I added a bit of shadows with Copic Markers for more definition to the mug.

All of the patterned papers are from the Delightful collection by Authentique.  I used the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-Namics from MFT to create the flag panel and stitched it to the card with my Janome Sew Mini.  The circles were cut with the Circle STAX 1 Die-Namics and Circle STAX 2 Die-Namics, also from MFT, and I added some embossing with the Polka Dots Embossing Folder.

I created a layered flower using the Pretty Posies Die-Namics from MFT and added a kraft button in the center.  I used the flower to anchor the sentiment panel, cut with the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-Namics again, and I stamped the sentiment, "Perk Up!" from...Perk Up!   Here is a closeup of the flower.

Please head on over and check out what my fabulous SFYTT Sisters have created today right here:
