October MFT & Friends | The New Release is Here!

October 8, 2019 - 46 Comments

Hello everyone! It’s finally time to shop the newest release from My Favorite Things! This is one of their biggest releases yet and it’s filled with so many amazing new products!

I created a slimline card today featuring the new Merry Wishes Set, illustrated by Stacey Yacula. I set my scene on a subtle ink-blended background of Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide Ink. I also used the Snowfall – Horizontal Stencil with White Texture Paste to add some snow to my sky.

I stamped all of my images with Black Ink onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and colored with Copic Markers.

Copic Colors Used:

  • Browns: E40, E41, E42, E43, E44, E47
  • Reds: R14, R27, R46, R89
  • Blues: BG0000, BG000, BG01, BG05, BG07
  • Blacks & Grays: W00, W0, W2, W4, W5, W7
  • Greens: YG61, YG63, YG67, YG97
  • Whites: 0, C00, C0, C2, C4

I used the Stitched Snow Drifts Die-namics and extended my cut to create a long stitched drift of snow for my scene. I adhered this piece to my card with some 3D Foam Adhesive Tape for added dimension and then proceeded to adhere my images. Lastly, I heat embossed my sentiment onto a strip of Black Licorice Card Stock with Fine Detail White Embossing Powder.
