MFTeasers: The a la modes in Dream Big!



Hi everyone!  Happy Monday!

I am SO excited for both today and tomorrow...it's a la modes Teaser Time from My Favorite Things!  Of all the bajillion stamps in the world of stamping, I have to say that the a la modes are probably up there in my top 3...and they may just be my absolute favorites!!!

The sweet gal I have the pleasure of previewing today is the a la modes in Dream Big!  O.M.G.  LOVE her!   She is stamped onto X Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic Markers.  The moon has a coat of Crystal Glitter to make it shine.  I cut out and embossed the panel with Square Nestabilities and drew in a frame with my Copic Multliner.  I stamped the sentiment, "Dream Big" and then stamped the word bubble and cut it out using the Die-Namics Say What? Stamp Set and Die

All of the patterned paper is UPcycle from Cosmo Cricket and I sewed each layer on my sewing machine.  I added a border with the Die-Namics Small Scallop Border Die for some extra interest.  The clouds were cut from My Favorite Felt using the Die-Namics Flat Bottom Cloud Die.  The flower was cut from the same patterned paper using the Die-Namics Pretty Posies Die and of course, I had to add a center using the Die-Namics Button Quartet Die.  I tied that with a bit of Baker's Twine.


The inside has a bit more of the same patterned paper, some more stitching, and another fun sentiment, "If you can dream it you can do it", which is center stage on the Die-Namics Sweet Stack Die.  LOVE this set of dies...they make me happy.  I added a bit more stitching to the sentiment, another border with the Die-Namics Small Scallop Border Die and called it done!


Here are the Die-Namics I've used on my card:
