For my card today I used the à la modes I’ve Got UR Back stamp set to create a free standing pop up card. I paper pieced the letters in the image as well as the girls shirt.

I used a number of die-namics to create this card which include

I have a second card to share with you today and that used the other new à la modes stamp set being released on Tuesday …. à la modes Lightbulb Moment. I have paper pieced the girls pants.

I have used a number of Die-namics on the front of my card, to start I used the new Die-namics Rectangle Stax 1 & 2 for the main image. On the corners of my card I used the Die-namics Circle STAX Set 1 & Die-namics Circle STAX Set 2 . For the sentiment I used the Die-namics Bracket Tab. To finish off I used the new  Die-namics Mini Royal Roses and Die-namics Royal Leaves.

I also added some Caribbean Teal Twine to the left side of the card.

Here is the inside of my card, I added a sentiment and stamped the à la modes girl to the lower right hand side of my card. I also added the circles to my card using the Die-namics Circle STAX Set 1 & Die-namics Circle STAX Set 2 .
