** please see my previous post for this week's CR84FN Challenge**
We are on day 5 of the November My Favorite Things teasers. Today is the à la mode preview. We took a short break with these girlies and I'm happy to see them back in the their holiday best! Two sets releasing this month: Sparkling Season & You Shine! Makes me Happy!!!
Up first is the YOU SHINE ALM. I used Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch to show her off.
I cut out an oval (Oval Stax 1 & 2) and matted her on to a larger oval Die-namics in PAVER RED CS. The card base is Sweet Tooth and then I used Hot Fudge to matt the other layers.
I accented her with a FISHTAIL FLAGS STAX (original and Layers). Then tucked in a LET IS SNOW snowflake and a star from STAR STAX DIE-NAMICS. The star was a great spot to add my sentiment. To pull out a little more of the deep, rich red, I tied on a PAVER RED BUTTON with some Twine.
Up next is my second ALM card, but this time I used the SPARKLING SEASON STAMP SET.
Have you played along with this month's Guest Designer Contest??? There is still time to play. You can read all about it HERE.
This is the sketch for this month's Challenge:
And Here is my card. I have had this idea in my head for weeks. It was nice to finally let it come out and play ;)
Following the sketch, I used the PEEK A BOO SQUARED DIE-NAMICS, pieced up with different holiday papers for the different circles. Pretty quick to do, thanks to this Die-namics.
I did piece up the ornament and gave it a touch of sparkle with a red rhinestone. Paper is Authentique-Festive.
Here is the finished inside of my card. I added another sentiment from the set, stamped again in MFT WILD CHERRY INK and added a few holly leaves from the cool new JUMBO STOCKING DIE-NAMICS. A few red rhinestones to make it sparkle!
