MFT GD---Get Well Soon!

Hi!  Hope you guys are having a fabulous January so far :)  I am on vacation from school until the 24th of this month so I am trying to get my stamp room/office/hubby's office all clean and organized so as soon as school starts I can keep up on my design commitments and study and not be surrounded by boxes!  I am proud that I am getting rid of sooo much stuff and that I actually can find the stuff I am keeping.  OK enough chit chat! 

I was able to find some time to join in the MFT Guest Designer contest found HERE.  The challenge was to Paper Piece!  So much fun!  I have really liked the look of cutting out layers and creating dimension so I have been doing that a lot lately.  Plus I LOVE the a la modes!  They are adorable!  I used Oh Baby on my project. 

I had my image all colored up but I wanted to wait to complete my card until my package of fabulous dienamics arrived!!!  I stocked up with the MFT after Christmas sale!

 I stamped the image on neenah white paper and colored with copics.  The design paper is from Cosmo Cricket-Material Girl-In Stitches.  I used the Open Bracket border dienamic and the mini tab quartet die.  Can I just say that the mini tab collection is a MUST HAVE!!!!  I love it cause it fits soooo many sentiments!  The sentiment is from MFT Who's That Girl Rain or Shine.  The sentiment is actually straight but I punched out the tabs and used it as a guide to curve the clear stamp on the acrylic block.  It was a perfect fit!  I love that this image doesn't just have to be a baby card!

A quick tip!  If you would like a layering mat for your mini tab sentiment layer then take a pencil and trace around the die and cut it out!  Worked perfectly here!
