It's à la modes hop time!

So, what do you think of these insanely cute girlies? I know, I KNOW!!! Well, now you can get them in your hot little hands--they are officially released and ready for sale at My Favorite Things right here! If you got here from Sherrie's blog, you're right on track. If not, you *need* to double back to Kim's blog where you can get the deets and where the hop starts. Here's a few things about this new line of stamps:
  • à la modes will be available only in rubber
  • Each set is produced in the USA using the highest quality rubber, with the deepest etch possible.
  • Each image and sentiment is backed on cling foam and scroll cut, making it ready for stamping right out of the bag!
  • Packaged in a clear hang bag, we've also provided the ideal storage solution by including a thick laminated header card in each set that can be used to store the stamp set, in its entirety, after purchase.
  • $10.95 for the 3 x 4" set.
OK, so here's my card. I'm using à la modes in Birthday Girl tonight.

I searched around for a cupcake card template and, while there are plenty out there, none really was what I was looking for--so you know I had to make my own :) I stamped the image on a Perfect Paper Panel with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored it with Copic markers--this time I paper pieced the cupcake top. Then I cut her out and popped her up on Pop Dots. I ran More Mustard through my paper crimper and then cut it out and layered it on the card base. Then I cut out the top and popped it up on Pop Dots as well to add a little dimension to that. I cut out some trim with my Jumbo Ric Rac die and embossed it with my Ribbon RE:Creations Grograin Texture Plate, attached it to the top and added a ribbon and bow. The sentiment pieces are punched out and popped on. Other MFT products I used are: Sweet Tooth and Wild Cherry card stock.

Here's the inside with another sentiment from the set:
