Happy Fall!

MFT-AlamodesPumpkin-wmLink

Hi everyone and happy Sunday! I hope you are all enjoying your weekend.

It’s day 5 of the MFTeasers and I have one more Teaser to share with you! Today the MFT Stamps Design Team are featuring more of the new sets that are to be released by MFT Stamps on Tuesday 4th October.

The sets being shown today are “à la modes Fight Like A Girl” and “à la modes Sweetest Pumpkin In The Patch”.

For my card today I decided to use the à la modes Sweetest Pumpkin In The Patch stamp set. The layout of this card is a recent Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge (SSSC135). I paper pieced the pumpkin using designer paper.

I used four MFT Die-namics on the front of my card, these include Die-namics Decorative Doily, Die-namics Mini Pennant and two of the new Die-namics to be released … Die-namics Gardenia Die and Die-namics Vintage Flourish Die.

Decorative Doily Die-namics

Here is the inside of my card. I stamped the à la modes girl in the bottom right hand corner of my card and added a sentiment from the set.

For the border I used the new Die-namics Postage Stamp Border, but rather than using the postage edge portion of the die I used the negative part. I love being able to use the negative portion for these dies.
