MFT October Release Countdown--Day 5

Here we are at Day 5 of My Favorite Things October Release with lots of
new Christmas themed stamps and dies to give you a head start on your
holiday cardmaking!

Today I'm sharing a stamp set in a beautiful font that doesn't need much,
but a simple background or patterned paper to showcase it--Warm Holiday Wishes.

I began by using a new stencil--Drifts and Hills--to create the background.
Using an ink blending tool and mini Distress inks, I began stenciling in
yellow ink, then turned the stencil each time to get a different "hill" and
switching the colors in a warm color palette.

The panel was cut with the Mod Rectangle STAX for a bit of interest,
and the sentiment was gold embossed over it. The panel was adhered to
a Primitive Cream card base and finished off with teeny gold stars.

The Drifts and Hills stencil may be my new favorite for creating fun backgrounds.
You can change up the colors, depending on the occasion, and I'll be sharing more
cards using the stencil during the countdown.

Visit today's countdown post at My Favorite Things for more peeks at the
October release and don't forget to leave a comment there for a chance to win
a $75 prize! Thanks for stopping by!
