For my card tonight, I used the Well Read set. It was stamped on an MFT Perfect Panel, and then paper pieced and colored with my Copics. My DP is from an old paper pack I found in my room(which you will be seeing MUCH more of, cause I LOVE IT) from DCWV called Retro Prints.....so YUMM!! I paired it with Groovy Guava and Hot Fudge(MFT). My ribbon is from Michael's and my spiral clip is from Creative Express.
Well, that is it for me for now, I don't want to keep you because I know you have a TON to see!!!! Next stop on the hop is Joanne's Blog!! Have fun!!

Time To Celebrate a la Mode!!

Are you ready for some more of those fabulous à la mode girls from MFT Stamps? Today the MFT Design Team is featuring the à la mode Time To Celebrate set.

If you haven’t seen them before, they are a new line from MFT called à la modes … here a few things about the sets:

  • à la modes will be available only in rubber
  • 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.
  • $10.95 for the 3 x 4" set.

For my card, I used a previous Sketch For You To Try, and my new Time To Celebrate set. For the ric rac at the top, I used the Ric Rac Die-namic

and the Die-namics Ribbon RE:Creations Grosgrain Texture Board to give it some texture.

And I used the scalloped scallop at the bottom, along with some SU ribbons.

Well, that is it for me for now!! Hope you enjoy the new sets!! Be sure to check out Kim's blog at 11am EST to see a list of all the designers showing teasers today!!
