à la modes Teaser Day Two - Take Time

Today's MFT à la modes is called Take Time. It has an adorable image plus tons of sentiments that are perfect for lots of occasions. Here's a few things about this line:
  • 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.
 I just got this new Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934 paper and had to use it!


After I colored the image I cut it out and popped it up on a panel of patterned paper matted with Wild Cherry and Black Licorice card stock. I used the Little Open Scallop Strip Die-namics die (OMGosh, but I love this!) on the dotted element and tied a pretty bow around using ribbon from the Birthday Bash collection. The sentiment was punched out and popped up.

Here's the inside with another sweet sentiment.

And here are the Copics I used.

Thanks for stopping by! Remember, both à la modes go on sale tonight at 10pm along with this month's VIP collection!!! WAIT until you see the VIP collection. Just sayin'...
