à la modes - Candy Cane Kisses

Happy Monday, everyone! I am SO excited to be previewing the NEW à la modes from My Favorite Things! They have totally stolen my heart! We'll have teasers today and tomorrow, so you'll want to stay tuned! Today's preview is of Candy Cane Kisses.


Paper is from the Holly Jolly 12 x 12 pack by My Mind's Eye. I embossed the background panel with the Cuttlebug Snowflakes folder. I stamped the image on a Perfect Paper Panel in Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored with Copics. There are Frosted Lace Stickles on her boot trim and pom pom and Icicle Stickles on the snow.


I used the Die-namics Fresh Cut Grass die to make icicles! I cut them from My Favorite Felt and applied more Icicle Stickles. I love the result -- you'll definitely be seeing more of it!  :)


Stop by Kim's Blog today after 11 am for a complete list of designers who are previewing this sweet set! I'll have another à la modes teaser for you tomorrow -- you'll love her, too!

Thanks so much for visiting today!

Have a great day!
Christina
