Today we've got two new à la mode cuties to join the line up. This month we're rockin' out AND chattin' it up. The name of the new sets are called: à la modes - Girl Talk and Rock Star.
Let me start the day with my softer side.   I am dying for an IPhone....hopefully soon.  For now I'll have fun coloring up this GIRL TALK à la mode.  I pieced up the outter layer of her phone with some new Miss Caroline paper by My Mind's Eye....how fun would an IPhone cover be in plaid??? I added a touch of crystal effects to the camera and lense holes.

I also did the sentiment up on the new CHAT BUBBLES DIE-NAMICS.  Love those things!!! If you didn't see my post on how to shorted these Die-namics check out THIS post.    (I'm making some changes to my blog real soon and I'm working on adding a tutorial list for my sidebar! )


 I also prettied it up with a layered BOTANICAL BEAUTY DIE-NAMICS. The sketch is Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch.


 Now let's see the rocker chic.....she's pretty cool, too!.  I pulled out some older SU paper from my stash. 





 I pieced up the guitar  on this one and added a MONARCH BORDER.  A row of rhinestones were the perfect touch.

I cut one of the MINI WAVY PENNANATS and stamped the "rock star" sentiment on it and stitched it onto a STACKING STARS DIE-NAMICS


 A few more stars and rhinestones finish the outside off. 

I almost always finish off the inside of my cards when I uses the stacking stars....it's a no brainer when you have extra stars leftover.  Another border strip of the MONARCH BORDER DIE-NAMICS, some of the same designer papers and another sentiment from the set and I have a sweet, coordinating inside to my card.
    Kim's Blog has the Teaser Line Up....Hop on over there to see who's showing off the goods today.
