MFT Teasers Day Two - Ice Skating Flopsey, Flapper Doodles, Die-Namic Duos Flower Silhouette Die & Stamp Set


Hello again.  First let me start by saying how much I love Flopsey!!!  If you do to, then you're not going to be disappointed by this month's Flopsey release called Ice Skating Flopsey.  When I first saw the set, I immediately thought "what a great Christmas present set".  So....that's what I went with since Christmas is only a few weeks away.  I'm planning on making a CD for my dad and step-dad of my daughters band/colorguard performances since they both live out of town and couldn't make any of them this year or last. 

I started by stamping Flopsey three times on MFT's white Perfect Panels in memento tuxedo black ink and colored them with prismacolor markers before cutting one out.  Pulling out a CD tin from my stash and some retired Stampin Up! winter designer paper, I put some score tape on top of the CD tin and then turned it over onto the designer paper.  (Thanks Jodi for the tip from your blog)  This way I only had to cut around the sides with my Fiskars finger craft knife instead of trying to "match up" everything.

Here's a close-up of the CD tin.

Since I also wanted Flopsey to have some snow banks behind him, I tore some scrap paper and stippled Stampin Up! bashful blue ink lightly for the two uncut images.  Once I also added the snowflake brads and punched images to the upper right corner, the other three needed something so I punched out my own brads using a hand held circle punch.




This set of four has some fantastic sayings to go along with the Flopsey image.  I've used the Thinking Of You here on the decorated inside.  Only this time, I used a punched out snowflake by the saying instead of a brad.

Now if you haven't entered the Guest Designer contest for a chance to win up to $125 worth of stamps and the chance to post during the teasers with the Design Team, make sure you check out the challenge here in the MFT forum.
