My Favorite Things

MFT November Release Countdown Day 5

Hello, hello! It’s time to begin the My Favorite Things November Release Countdown! I can’t tell you how excited I am to have Stacey Yaccula join the MFT family and bring us her darling illustrated sets every month now! I have adored her illustrations for such a long time. This month MFT is introducing her newest set called Warm and Feathered Hugs.

I stamped all the owls in the set in Milk Chocolate Hybrid ink and colored the images with copic markers. Then I die cut the images out with the coordinating dies. Given the sentiment that I was planning to use, I wanted to create a warm imagery, so I went along with a scene with colors of purple, pink, and orange.

I stamped a few of the trees into the background in Tea Dye distress oxide ink. I added two layers of stitched snow drifts that I die cut out of white card stock, and gently added some blending to it with the Tea Dye distress oxide ink.

I added snow to my background with some white acrylic paint splatter, let it dry, and then  heat embossed the sentiment in white in the top right corner.

And finally, I added my three sweet little owls to the card with foam squares.

Hope you enjoyed the products featured in today’s post and be sure to also check out the MFT Blog for more inspirations from participating designers and other products introduced today!
