For my first card I used the NEW A La Modes Stamp set, Go for Gold...this ALM girlie sure embodies the spirit of the Olympic Games and I just adore her....SO cute! I'm looking forward to watching the London 2012 Olympics this summer...only 54 more days to go, whoo hoo!

So, I coloured the ALM Go for Gold girl with my Copics and cut her out and pop dotted her on the card front. I paired her with this pretty, Simple Stories, Summer Fresh paper. I have used both the 6x6 pad and a section of a 12X12 sheet, making it look like there's lots of layers but it is the pattern paper...I saw this on Amy's blog and I love how it looks. I used two of the sentiments from this set and stamped them on the pattern paper cut with the NEW Traditional Tag STAX (a must-have from this release) and the ribbon die form the First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics. I also used the NEW Notched Border Die-namics...I love it too!!!

Here is my second card using the NEW A La Modes stamp set, Firecracker. I love this cute ALM girl too...such a cute outfit and cute wedges too. I used the Simple Stories, Summer Fresh 6x6 and 12x12 papers again. I coloured my ALM Firecracker girl with Copics and paper pieced her outfit. I cut the image out with the Traditional Tag STAX and inked in the background with Scattered Straw Distress ink.  I added in another Notched Border, some twine and a BG button. I stamped this fun sentiment on pattern paper cut with the ribbon die from the First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics.
