à la modes - Birthday Girl

Hello everyone!  Happy Hump Day!  :) 

Today, we are previewing another new à la mode stamp set: Birthday Girl.  Just to remind you about this amazing new release from MFT:
  • The 2 new stamp sets will be available July 14th @ 10 PM EST
  • They are high quality, deeply etched, grey RUBBER, mounted on cling foam, SCROLL CUT for your convenience and packaged with a heavy laminated card to store it on.  (WHEW, that was a mouthful!  LOL)
I did my "usual" and got stuck on a paper pack for these 2 cards.  I love the striking look of orange, black, and white... or black, white, and ANY "popping" color for that matter. :)  It's just SO easy. 

I used the black ruffled ribbon and went around my entire image with it.  I added 3, 2 mm Swarovski crystals to her crown.

I added a double-stitched border to the orange panel to jazz it up.

I added a Heidi Swapp ghost shape, with a felt button center.  I found the felt button at an LSS from Creative Imaginations.  I tied a piece of ric rac through it.  You know how I cringe about naked buttons.  LOL  PS: Adding a CLEAR embellishment is the perfect choice, when bringing in another color isn't an option.

The original reason I went with orange, is because I was SO wanting to use these new orange Primas I bought at an LSS several weeks ago.  Mission accomplished!  Now, I have 5 more to go!  :)

I colored the cupcake with butter cream frosting, but it was kinda EH to me, so I added some subtle Sakura Clear Glaze Pen dots to the frosting.  We'll call it sugar sprinkles. :)

And here is the big ol' flower I wanted to use.  Isn't it cool? 

Are you ready to see the rest of the team's creations for the day?  Click on over to Kim's blog to see the full list of participants at 11 AM EST today. 

THEN, check back tonight at 10 PM EST for the à la modes blog hop and release.  Don't you want to be one of the first stampers to grab some MFT RUBBER?  *wink*

See you later!  HUGS!
