MFT Previews, Day 5 — à la modes!

It’s à la modes preview day with My Favorite Things…one of my favorites!

Here I’ve used I’ve Got UR Back.  **squeal**  I LOVE this set!  I pieced the letters, cutting out the inside of the R with a kraft knife.  The flowers were created using Flower and Leaf Trio.  The “fabulous” tab was die-cut using Mini-Tabs Foursome Die-namics.

On the inside, I stamped the girl, omitting the letters.  Instead, I used a Copic multi-liner (o.25) and a straight edge to create a shelf of sorts.  On the shelf, I used i and u from By the Letters and a heart from Hearts a Plenty Die-namics.  (I may never part with this card.)   :)

This card is a bit more CAS.  Here I’ve used Light Bulb Moment.  SO cute (the set, not necessarily my card).  😉  I also used our new Squiggle Border and Fishtail Flags STAX.  (The layout was hugely inspired by a card I LOVE of Megan‘s.)

On the inside I used a sentiment from Who’s That Girl Let’s Chat.

Here are the Die-namics I used on both cards.  (Clicking on each will take you right to that item in the store, except for the Squiggle Border which is not yet available.)
