MFT Teasers - Day 2 of à la modes goodness!


Hey everyone! Here we are at day 2 (of 2) of My Favorite Thing's Teaser Time. Can you believe it?! Tonight, the MFT VIP kit and the 2 new à la modes stamp sets (You Rule à la mode and You Mean the World to Me à la mode) will be available for purchase at the MFT Boutique. Whoot whooot!

First, a little bit about MFT's line of à la mode stamps:
  • Each set is produced in the USA using the highest quality rubber, with the deepest etch possible
  • Each image and sentiment is backed on cling foam and scroll cut, making it ready for stamping right out of the bag!
  • Packages in a clear hand bag, we've also provided the ideal storage solution by including a thick laminated header card in each set that can be used to store the stamp set, in its entirety, after purchase
Today's featured à la mode is You Mean the World to Me. Is she not the cutest with that little globe?! I decided to create a circle shaped card to go with the "globe" theme and cut it out using my Spellbinders Grand Circle Nestabilities and Grand Scalloped Circle Nestabilities. I colored up the cute à la mode gal with my Copic markers. I then decided to take another image, colored up the globe, cut it out and used some of Jody's black foam dimensional boosters to pop up the globe on my base image. I used the K&Company Life's Journey papers, which were perfect because they had a sheet in the collection that was a map of the world. I used that as the top layer of my card. I took one of the postcards from the paper collection, tore it up and distressed the edges with Ranger Distress Ink in Walnut Stain. Then I took some brown twine from my stash, wrapped it around the torn piece and tied it up with a vintage button from PaperTrey Ink. I topped it off with some fun Burgundy Prima Say it in Pearls. 

Inside the card, I cut out the Dizzy Doily with some Hot Fudge cardstock. Then I layered the Sweet Stack over that and included a sentiment from the You Mean the World to Me - à la modes.
