I made two cards for today's previews of the gorgeous new holiday  a´  la modes. I adore the ALMs and these two are super cute! For my first card I used the super sweet NEW a´ la modes, You Shine...I love her to bits and she was so fun to colour with my Copics. I thought she would go perfectly with the BasicGrey Aspen Frost 6x6 papers and MFT Sno Cone, Natural and Sweet Tooth Heavyweight cardstock. I cut the image with my Rectangle STAX Die-namics and inked with Tumbled Glass Distress ink. I am SO in love with the NEW Jumbo Snowflake Die-namics and cut it from corrugated sparkly white cardstock and I cut several other smaller snowflakes with the Let it Snow Die-namics. I added a border cut with the Wonky Scalloped Border Die-namics and I added some Sweet Tooth Grosgrain ribbon and Sno Cone button tied with Hemp cord.  For the sentiment I stamped only part of the sentiment from the NEW ALM You Shine stamp set to fit on the little tag cut with the NEW Decorative Circle tag STAX Die-namics...I love this new Die-namics too.

Here is the inside of my card...I stamped the NEW ALM You Shine girl again and added a few more snowflakes and stamped another sentiment from the ALM You Shine stamp set on Kraft cardstock cut with one of the Sentiment strips.

Now for my second card I inked up the NEW ALM Sparkling Season!!! I adore her too and can't decided which one is my fave I LOVE them both. I coloured the Sparkling Season girl with my Copic. I used more BasicGrey Aspen Frost 6x6 papers and I also used the NEW Darling Dots Stamp set and stamped them with Embossing ink and embossed them with AC Zing Opaque White embossing powder on Wild Cherry and Sno Cone Heavyweight Card Stock. I then cut out the ALM girl and pop-dotted her on the red glittery corrugated Jumbo Snowflake cut with the NEW Jumbo Snowflake Die-namics.

I cut the Darling Dots embossed panels with the NEW Snow Drifts Edge Die-namics. The Snow Drift Die-namics die is fabulous and can be used in some many different ways not just to create snow drifts...here I just used it to create a whimsical wave to my papers. I added some Wild Cherry Grosgrain ribbon and a Sno Cone Button with Hemp Cord. I also added a few other red sparkly snowflakes cut with the Let it Snow Die-namics and 3 white BasicGrey painted Brads.

 Here is a detail shot of the ALM Sparkling Season girl....she is SO cute!

Here is the inside of my card...I used the Sweet Stack Die-namics and the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics to create the sentiment panel. I added a loop of Wild Cherry Grosgrain Ribbon and I made a bow from Wild Cherry Heavyweight Card Stock with the NEW Dainty Bows Die-namics.

Thanks SO much for stopping by today and have a little look at my card featuring the NEW a´ la modes You Shine Stamp and Sparkling Season stamp sets. Please take a few minutes and pop on over to Kim's blog for links to all the other MFT Designers with cards to share today!

Happy Stampin'!
