Hoppin' with Flopsey...

Welcome to the mid-month MFT Blog Hop! Just happening along the blog hop? Then, you'll want to start over at Kim's blog HERE and then hop to end. Of course there is ALWAYS blog candy at the end, but this week... there is an "intermission", and you'll have a SECOND chance to win the brand spankin' new I Need Coffee Flopsey that will be released TONIGHT in 2 short hours! :) At midnight EST, you'll be able to view the TWO new sets right HERE.

Confession: I do not drink coffee, java or lattes, but this new Flopsey stamp set is so cute, that it doesn't matter! LOL In fact, I had to ask a friend what java and latte were so that I would use it in the right context... LMBO! I am a sweet tea drinker and just never went down Coffee Road. :)

Here is the coffee mug I made:

The mug came with an insert in it, and I removed the insert and used it as a guide to make my own insert. It was rectangular(ish) will curved top and bottom, so that when inserted, it fits perfectly in the mug. I cut strips of patterned paper and adhered them to black card stock and then trimmed it in the proper shape. I used my Janome sew mini to stitch all the panels together and then added a simple sentiment to the liner before slipping it in the mug.
I covered some chipboard with patterned paper and then die cut it with a new tag die from Sizzix. Then, I colored a Flopsey and cut it out with my circle cutter (skipping the ears, feet and mug so that I could trim those with scissors and they would be "out of the circle"). I tied the tag to the handle of the mug with some black, ruffled ribbon.
Here is the matching card I made:
Flopsey was colored with Copic markers and then I used Prismacolor pencils/gamsol to make the wispy, blue outline.
