A Cup of Thanks, MFT Previews – à la modes

It’s à la modes Preview Day with My Favorite Things!

This  month we have a cute tea themed à la modes — You’re My Cup of Tea.

I stamped her onto X-Press It Blending Card, colored with Copics and added grass/ground with my Prismacolor pencils.  I stamped the tag a second time, cut it out and stamped a little heart (from Lisa Johnson’s Stitched Stockings) using Wild Cherry ink. I adhered only the top of the tag, leaving the bottom to bend up just a bit.

I stamped the sentiment onto a Fishtail Flag and layered with Fishtail Flag Layers using Tangy Orange cardstock.  A Tangy Orange button was stitched on using hemp cord.

Inside, I stamped a silhouette of the image on the inside using new Lemon Drop ink and added a sentiment from Happy Thoughts stamp set.
