MFT Teasers - Day 4 Alphadots

Welcome to Day 4 of the My Favorite Things teasers. I was SO excited to hear about this new alphabet set! I use my Bling 'Bet all the time, so couldn't wait to play with Alphadots! I whipped up a couple of quick cards - I love how the alphabet is really the focal point of the cards!

For my first card I created a clothesline and hung the letters from it with mini clothespins. I stamped the letters in Versamark, then embossed with white embossing powder. The letters are actually 3/4" but I only had a 1" punch. I love the way they look with the border though! My poles are bamboo skewers that I cut down to size and the line is hemp. The paper is some old Chatterbox that I had around.

For my second card I paired some Basic Grey Marrakech paper with some MFT digi paper. I printed it out and punched it with a notebook punch. The "U" is from my beloved Bling 'Bet and I again stamped in Versamark and white embossing powder.
My last project, isn't really a project. It was more of a craft time with my daughter. I had been doing some Christmas shopping online and was looking at this book. My son loves Ed Emberley books - he's addicted to the drawing animals one. I figured this would make a great gift since I have NO shortage of ink to make fingerprints with (lol).
Do you see my inspiration piece? Yup - I have a thing for caterpillars. Remember this card that I made for MFT Idol? I think it's because both my kids absolutely adore Eric Carle's The Very Hungry Caterpillar. I know it by heart because we read it so often!
I stamped out my daughters name in Versamagic Chalk Inks and then doodled the face and legs with a black glaze pen. My daughter wouldn't let me embellish it at all - just the adorn-its in the corners. I managed to snap one picture before she confiscated it. It's now living on her bedroom door.

Thanks again for stopping by and reading my blah, blah! I appreciate your comments more than you know! Don't forget to stop by Kim's blog after 11am EST today for a list of all the designers previewing this set.
