MFTeaser–à la modes

MFT alamodesfirecracker wm

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 5th June.

The sets being shown today are “à la modes Firecracker” and “à la modes Go for Gold”.

I have two cards to share with you today, for my first card I used the à la modes Firecracker set. For the layout of my card I used the sketch from this month’s MFT Guest Designer Challenge, of course I can’t enter the challenge as I am already on the design team, but I just had to play with the sketch and it is such a cool sketch. You still have time to enter if you haven’t already.


I have used the Die-namics Traditional Tags Stax for my main image, I used one of the larger tags for the width but cut it down as I didn’t need it that long. To keep the embossed border on the end I just scored along the bottom, but it would probably be easier to just put the tag back in the die and get the edge that way. I paper pieced the girls dress using designer paper.

For the sentiment I used the Die-namics Mini Tabs Foursome . The two panels going across the card have been edges with the Die-namics Notched Border. For the star I used the Die-namics Star Stax and added some Lemondrop Yellow Twine through the button on the top of the star.

Here is the inside of my card. I have used one of the stars from the Die-namics Star Stax for my sentiments. I also added the Die-namics Notched Border along the edge of the striped designer panel.

For my second card I used the à la modes Go for Gold stamp set. The Olympics are coming up in July, I love watching all the talented athletes. Of course living in Australia I cheer for the Aussies, so for my card today I have colored the girl using Australian official colors.

I have used a number of Die-namics on my card, first up the Die-namics Notched Border which you can see on the diagonal panel. I have used the Die-namics Mini Tabs Foursome for my sentiment. I have combined the Die-namics Star Stax and also the Die-namics Stacking Stars for all the stars around my image.
