MFT December Previews, Day 5

Hi everyone!  For Day 5 of previews, the My Favorite Things team and guests are previewing two new à la modes sets, Ski Bunny and Cocoa Cutie.

Cocoa Cutie reminds me of my daughter in so many ways…the clothing, the boots, the cocoa…although she would have a **lot** more marshmallows in the cup.  :)

After stamping and coloring, I decided to pop up the cup so I restamped, colored again and then added the dots using a Sakura light turquoise Souffle pen.

The flowers were created using MFT’s new Fringed Perennial Die-namics.

Along each side of the pink panel I added a a strip of Dainty Dots Border Die-namics (one die-cut strip cut in half lengthwise).

On the inside, I broke the longer sentiment into three shorter lines to fit the narrow panel.

Here are the details about the upcoming release:
