I used both of the super fun and cute NEW A La Modes stamp sets, You Anchor Me and On Safari! I just adore both fo these ALM girlies to bits. First up is A La Modes, You Anchor Me. I paired her with this pretty My Minds Eye, Indie Chic Nutmeg 6x6 papers, I thought they had a nautical feel to them.  I coloured the You Anchor Me ALM girl with my Copics and paper pieced her cute out-fit. I cut the image out with my Rectangle STAX Die-namics and drew in some decking with my Prismacolour Pencils and inked with Old Paper Distress ink. 

I used the NEW Solid Skyline Die-namics, the NEW Jumbo Squiggle Border Die-namics and the New Sea Charms too. I cut the the ship's wheel and the anchor from DCWV metallic cardstock and tied the charms to the bow with more twine. I stamped one of the cute sentiments that comes in the the stamp set on pattern paper cut with the NEW Sentiments Strips.

Up next is the super cute NEW A La Modes, On Safari. I made this card for my daughter, Hannah! Tuesday, July 3rd, is her 13th Birthday and to celebrate as a family we are going to the Toronto Zoo today to check out the wildlife, lol!

 So for my card, I coloured the ALM, On Safari girlie with my Copics and added in ground and some shading with my Primsacolor pencils. I cut the image out with my OVAL STAX Die-namics and inked with Scattered Straw Distress ink. I used Simple Stories Happy Day 6x6 paper pad for this card. One of the patterned papers had this little calendar for the Month of July, so, I cut it out, marked Hannah's B'day on it and stamped in the word "ZOO" with the alphabet stamps from the Let's Toast Stamped and Die-namics set.  To embellish, I added some American Crafts Ribbon from my stash and a sprinkling of brown half-pearls. I stamped this fun sentiment from the On Safari Stamp set on kraft card cut with the ribbon die, from the First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics.
