January MFT Vault Release Countdown | Only One Day Left!

January 20, 2020

Hello crafty friends! There’s only one day left until the January MFT Vault Release becomes available! For my card today, I combined a bunch of the products that are being re-released from retirement.

I combined the Pure Innocence Farmer Girl Stamp Set along with the Barn Die-namics and Farm Fence Die-namics. I can’t tell you how excited I was to see that the Barn Die-namics were being pulled out of retirement. I had missed out on this set years back and had been scouring the internet for it over the past few years with no success. I started by diecutting this barn from Smooth White Card Stock and coloring parts of it with brown Copic Markers (E40, E41, E42, E43, E44, E47). I stamped my images with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock, colored them with Copics, and used the coordinating Farmer Girl Die-namics to cut them out.

I then created my background by using a mix of Distress Oxide Inks. I used the picture above for inspiration for what I wanted to look like a vibrant sunrise down on the farm. I first lined up where I wanted to place my grass and placed a circle cut from masking paper where I wanted my sun to appear. Next, I removed the grass and blended my background with Spiced Marmalade, Fossilized Amber, Squeezed Lemonade, Tumbled Glass, and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Inks.

I diecut some grassy hills using both the Stitched Snow Drifts Die-namics (in the background) and the Grassy Hills Die-namics (in the foreground) from both Sour Apple and Jellybean Green Card Stock. I blended a little bit of Mowed Lawn Distress Ink on a few of the pieces to add some contrast. I also diecut a fence from white card stock to add some more detail to my scene.

Lastly, I heat embossed my sentiment with Fine Detail White Embossing Powder in the top left corner of my card prior to assembling it together.

    Rachel, your mad coloring and blending skills are an inspiration, and I love that you used a snow drift die for part of your grassy background– just shows how well MFT designs thru the ages can all still work beautifully together- and in unexpected ways. Thank you!
