Crafty Cuppie by Sharon Harnist

Are you all loving the new Crafty Cuppie stamp set?!! I thought she would be adorable on a door hanger for my craft room, so here she is!

I covered a MDF board door hanger I got from Michael’s $1 bin (for a package of 3; measures 3.25” x 8”) with patterned paper from the September Key Ingredients Kit, using ModPodge.

I also used Crafty Expressions to stamp “I’d rather be” on the bottom of the hanger and then I stamped different expressions onto tags that could be changed out with this cute mini clothespin! I might have to make myself a “sleeping” tag next, LOL!

The Cuppie collage was stamped onto some of the solid patterned paper from the kit and then colored with these Copic markers:

The image was die cut with Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Oval Nestabilities and the edges sponged with Antique Linen Distress ink. The sentiments and X-stitches were stamped onto the papers and then the papers were decoupaged onto the door hanger.
I wanted the clothespin to match the papers a little more, so I colored it with Copic E25 marker. I hope this project will inspire you to “Do something creative everyday!”.

Oh my goodness -- I don't know even ONE crafty lady who wouldn't LOVE to have this on her craftroom door; I KNOW I would -- totally A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E, Sharon!!! I also LOVE my Copics for coloring so many items to make them match whatever I'm working on; just makes them so invaluable!
