MFT Teasers Day 2 - à La Mode

Hi everyone and welcome to day 2 of 2 of MFT Teasers for the new à La Modes!  The à La Mode sets will be available for purchase on the MFT Boutique tonight, along with this month's MFT VIP kit. So be ready to run on over! Today we are featuring Grad Girl à La Mode.

Just in case you didn't catch the scoop on 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!
  • Packaged in a clear hang 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.

Grad Girl à La Mode is the perfect stamp set for those graduating friends and family members. I created a card using October Afternoon's School House papers. I colored up my image with my Copic markers and cut it out using my Long Rectangle Nesties. I then tucked a piece of the Textile Rectangle Die-namics stamped with a sentiment along the side. I used my Notebook Edge Die-namics to create a notepaper effect on the layer under my image. Then I tucked along side a Simply Scallops die cut in Black Licorice cardstock. I crinkled some turquoise seam binding and centered on a Rolled Rose cut out with MFT felt.

I kept the inside pretty simple by laying down some Black Licorice cardstock with design paper and centering the sentiment onto a Sweet Stack of layers, adorned with some Recollections pearls.

I'll be back later on tonight for MFT's VIP Blog Hop & Shop. Don't forget, beginning at 7pm PT on Tuesday, April 19th, both featured à La Modes Dream Big and Grad Girl as well as MFT's VIP kit will be available for purchase on the MFT Boutique
