Happy Thursday ~ on Sunday! The past week has been sort of a blur. I jumped in with both feet to help out with our Brigade's Military Ball. It was last night and was a really awesome ball if I may say so.. with all the work I was doing making stuff for it, staying up until near 2 am the last five nights and my daughter's birthday on Thursday, I totally overlooked my Design Team post for TupeloDesignsLLC.

I woke up this morning to the sound of someone screaming ~ inside my head ~ that today was Saturday and I had missed my Thursday post. I went and made this card using a totally adorable stamp set from My Favorite Things Pure Innocence line called "Cupcake Day" ~ this little girl is so cute!
I colored her up using Copic Markers and did some paper piecing for her dress. I just noticed I had forgotten to color in the bow on her dress ~ I am going to color it in with a light purple marker.
I have some pictures below showing the paper piecing. This is an option to do for clothing instead of coloring it in ~ plus, it's super easy to do.
I used Versafine Black ink to ink up the middle of the stamp since I am only wanting the dress portion of the stamp for this.
Since the stamps are clear this makes it super easy to line up your image so that you can see through the stamp to pick the portion of the pattern paper you want to be the dress.
After cutting the dress along the outside of the lines ~ I took a Memento Black marker and from the backside you run the side of the marker along the outside of the dress to make the edge be black if looked at from the side.. doing this makes it look a lot neater.
I then glued her dress to the already colored in image using Multi Medium Matte and laid a block on top of it for a little bit.
I used coordinating dies to cut out my image.. if you do not have the dies, this image is super easy to cut out leaving a small white edge.
I used this week's My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge #291 ~ love this sketch: MFTWSC291
