à la modes, Preview #1

Hi everyone!  Today the My Favorite Things design team is previewing the first of two new à la modes sets to be released tomorrow night (1/18 at 10 p.m. EST) along with this month’s WTG VIP. 

Pink or Blue, Happy for You

Today we’re previewing Oh, Baby!  So cute!  I used MFT’s Banner Strip Die-namic Duo (alpha stamp set and banner die) to create the little “baby” banner.   (Looks like it’s currently out of stock but I’m sure it will be back soon.)

I paper-pieced the bow, stamping it twice onto patterned paper.  For the upper layer, I cut out only the loops and center portion of the bow, adhered the center portion only and bent up the loops just a bit. 

On the bear’s nose and eyes, I used a black 3-d glaze pen to add just a bit of dimension and shine.

On the inside I used one of the cute phrases included with the set.

For a list of direct links to more previews using this à la mode, please check Kim’s blog HEREI’ll be back tomorrow with a sample using the second new à la modes, my favorite of the two! 

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!
