CPS Day 4 Sketch with My Favorite Things

CPS (Card Positioning System) Card Sketches is celebrating their 5th Anniversary with a challenge to make card using the previous patterns they select over 15 days. This is the 4th Day's sketch #220 sponsored by My Favorite Things. I did this one out of order because I wanted to find my Sweet as Pie Flopsey stamp set for this design so I could use it with my old stash of CTMH Cherry-O papers.

Flopsy was colored with two Copics then cut out. I restamped the pie on Bamboo cardstock, colored the pan with a Cranberry marker and cut out to reattach over the base pie. The sentiment that comes with that stamp set is actually on one line. I used Scotch tape to cover "as Pie," inked it, pulled off the tape and stamped the first part. Then I had to clean the stamp, cover the "You're Sweet," ink it, pull off the tape on that side and stamp. It sounds complicated, but it's pretty quick and sometimes easier than masking. It has been one of my favorite techniques this past year. I punched the title with a 1 1/4" circle punch, the Tulip CS with 1 3/8" circle punch, and the Chocolate CS with a 1 1/2" circle punch. I mounted it on the Tulip colored pleated ribbon from Close To My Heart. The heart buttons are threaded with my favorite twine from Papertrey Ink. It's thin enough to thread through buttons easily and still has that "hairy" look.
