Finally

I made it into my stamp room today!!  We hosted New Years Eve & I was fighting laryngitis so yesterday it hit full force & I was literally on the couch all day watching a marathon of Storage Wars which I'm now totally addicted to!  Today we de-Christmasfied and after that I was in my room watching hockey & trying to find my mojo.

On SCS today I noticed that the MFTGUESTDT challenge for this month was paper piecing - seriously how was I going to pass that up?!


I inked up one of my new stamps MFT a la mode's Hot Cocoa Cutie.  I stamped the image with memento tuxedo black ink and coloured her face and hair.  I stamped the image a second time and coloured her hands and boots.  On the boots I then used some black flocking.  Her pants are paper pieced with riding hood red cs, the mug is paper pieced with a piece of MME's Be Merry, as is her sweater.  For the marshmallow's I used some white liquid applique and let it dry.

I then cut out the image and paper pieced it onto MFT's Tag You're It die-namic and layered the olive piece on a piece of riding hood red cs.  For the riding hood red piece I traced the Tag You're It die and cut it out.  For the sentiment I used a ribbon die from MFT's First Place Aware Ribbon die-namic.  I just realized I forgot to trim the paper under her arm - whoops!!  Originally I was leaving it on the cream cs but changed my mind.

Thanks for stopping by - off to rest up so I can cheer for Canada at the World Junior Hockey Championship that's being played here this week!!

Have a great day
