MFT February 2017 Release Countdown | Day 5

Hello and welcome to day 5 of the My Favorite Things February release countdown. For the next 5 days, we're counting down to the February 2017 release, sharing cards and ideas using the new products.

For today's card I used the new Friends Furever stamp set (and coordinating die-namics) along with the new Lots of Hugs stamp set (my favourite from this release!!) to create a cute card with an awesome sentiment.
I stamped the bear and puppy image onto white card stock, coloured them in with Copic markers and diecut the image with the coordinating die. As soon as I saw this image and the cute bear and puppy hugging, I knew I wanted to use the Lots of Hugs stamp set with it.

I created a blue inked background by adding distress ink to a white card stock panel with an ink blending tool. I added some texture to it by spritzing some water on it and dabbing it off with a paper towel... I love the distressed look you end up with just from adding water.

Once the background was dry, I added the sentiment (one of my favourites in the stamp set) with black ink and then I adhered the diecut image above it with foam adhesive. I also added some clear sequins for some added detail and dimension. ;)

Thanks so much for joining me for day 5 of the February release countdown. All of the new products that we're sharing all week will officially be available in the MFT online store at 9pm EST on February 7, 2017.
