My Favorite Things Teaser Time - a la modes!!

 
Hi and Very Happy New Year to you!!!  I'm so excited to be here with you celebrating 2012 as well as the two new gorgeous A La Mode sets being shown today!  I know that this week of teasers has been overwhelmingly gorgeous and I'm in awe, as usual, of the amazing creations that are being displayed by all the artists at MFT. 

Today I'm previewing A La Mode - Genie.  I was a HUGE Barbara Eden - I Dream Of Genie fan when I was a little girl and that was the first thing that popped into my head when I saw this new set.  I started by stamping her on Xpress white cardstock and coloring her with my Copics.  I then paper pieced her outfit - using red velum for her sheer pants and hair wrap.  I used white gel pen on her hair to create the illusion of where shine would be on her gorgeous blonde locks.  I pieced her magic lamp using gold cardstock.  After I stamped and trimmed it out, I ran it through my Xyron with the front facing toward the sticky, and then coated it heavily with yellow glitter.  I then pieced her arms on the outside of the lamp to ensure the proper dimension. 

I layered and stitched, added a bow and then sat back and looked at it.  Hmmmm...it needed a bit of something. 
I then had an "ah-ha" moment.  I pulled out my flat bottomed clouds, snipped apart my sentiment and stamped it onto my white cardstock clouds as if the words were floating out of the lamp!  And I was happy.  (wink)
I kept my interior simple and bold.  I used the new Jumbo Monarch Border, some stitching and another one of the sentiments that come with the pack and the interior was done.  
 
I want to thank you all for popping by today to check out my creation!  Don't forget to come by tomorrow as I'll have something entirely new to share with you!!
