Make A Wish!

MFT ALMGenie wm

Hi everyone and Happy New Year! 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 3rd January.

The sets being shown today are “à la modes Chocolate Bar” and “à la modes Genie”.

For my card today I used the à la modes Genie stamp set … how cute is she!!!!!! Perfect for birthdays and other occasions!

I have used 5 MFT Die-namics on the front of my card. There is the MFT Die-namics Jumbo Monarch Border. I combined  the MFT Die-namics Mini Wavy Pennants with the pole from the MFT Die-namics Mini Pennant Die, this gives you many more options of the type of pennant you use. I have also used the MFT Die-namics Vintage Flourish. And finally I used the new MFT Die-namics Rolled Scallop Flower, you may notice that this flower is a little fuller then normal, this is because I decided to join two die cuts together before rolling them so I could get the fuller flower .. here is a quick video to show you how I did it.

  48. I do trust all of the concepts you have offered in your post. They are very convincing and will certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are very short for starters. Could you please lengthen them a little from subsequent time? Thanks for the post.
