MFT Stamps November Release Countdown | Only Two Days to Go!

November 3, 2019 - 7 Comments

Hello, crafty friends! There are only two days left until the November Release from My Favorite Things becomes available! I have a fun pair of skating giraffes to share with you today. From the new Giraffes on Ice Stamp Set, these giraffes are enjoying the winter with some fun outdoor activities. I first stamped my images onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock, colored them with Copics, and then used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

I stamped my background onto a separate piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock using the scenery stamps that are included in this set. I extended the lines from the snowy hills using a Fine Line Black Copic Pen. I used Copic Markers to color my background and added some snow by splattering this piece with some diluted Opaque White Paint.

I used some Lavender Fields Prestige Card Stock and the new Simple Snowflakes Background Stamp to create the outer background of my card. To get this look, I heat embossed the snowflakes with Fine Detail White Embossing Powder. Once dry, I then used the Inside & Out Stitched Oval STAX Die-namics to cut out an oval-shaped window in the center of my card.

I then adhered my scene behind this window and added my images with some 3D Foam Adhesive Tape. Lastly, I stamped my sentiment onto a strip of white card stock and cut it out with one of the Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics.

Head to the MFT Blog for more release inspiration and leave a comment there for a chance to win a $75 MFT Gift Voucher!
