My Favorite Things October Release Countdown | Day 2

Hello and welcome to day 2 of the My Favorite Things October Release Countdown. For the next five days, we'll be sharing cards and projects featuring all of the new products coming out on October 9th at 10am EDT.

For my card today I used the adorable new Happy Llamadays stamp set and combined it with the Fa la la Die-namics to create a bright and colourful holiday card.

I created the sky area with Distress inks, and then I added snow to the background with white acrylic paint mixed with water. Once it was dry, I added the two snow hills to the bottom that were diecut from the Stitched Snowdrifts Die-namics.

I die cut the Fa la la and adhered a portion of it to the background. I wanted room to add the llama, so I didn't adhere the last to la's in the second and third row. I stamped and coloured the llama with Copic markers and used colours that would match the background scene that I had created.

I adhered the llama onto the snow drifts, and I completed the card with a sentiment stamped on black card stock and some clear sequins sprinkled onto the card front.
Thanks so much for joining me for Day 2 of the October release countdown. Make sure to head over to the MFT blog for a closer look at the new products and more ideas using them.

See you Tuesday for the release party!
