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.)

    Both cards are precious, but the color combination in the first is just gorgeous. The orange and the aqua are brilliant, and seem to just fire right off of one another! This dynamic color duo reminds me of my honeymoon in Jamaica, & the color of the Caribbean Sea and the fruity frozen drinks we sipped while taking in it’s beauty. <3
