Noel - MFT December Teaser Day Four

You know how much I love Bling 'bet. Well, Kim is giving us a whole new alphabet to play with. This one is called Alpha Dots and will be available for purchase on December 2. Don't you just {heart} this font?

I paired this set with an older set called Funky Flowers with which I made my poinsettia. (Funky Flowers is currently in the Bubble Bin--check it out!) I stamped it three times--once on Old Olive and twice on Riding Hood Red, then glued them together with glue dots. Then I glued on some gold seed beads for the center. It makes a perfect poinsettia, I think.

For the Alpha Dots, I stamped them on Very Vanilla with Memento Rhubarb Stalk ink and punched them out with a 3/4" circle punch (which is a perfect fit) then popped them up on foam circles. I used three patterns of paper from Memory Box's Spiceberry collection. My scalloped border was done with an EK Success border punch and I added some tiny red flat-backed pearls to the border for some contrast. I think this alphabet set is going to become a much-used set.

MFT DT members (both full-time and guests for December) will be showing you more ways to use this set, so head on over to Kim's blog to see the line up--she'll have the list up at 11:00am EST. Be sure to check them out--I can't wait to see all the ideas everyone comes up with for this set!
