MFT Stamps February Release Countdown | Four Days to Go!

January 31, 2020

Hello crafty friends! There are only four days left until the newest MFT Release becomes available! I have a sweet little Birthday Card to share with you today that features the brand new and adorable Sweet Shop Stamp Set illustrated by Stacey Yacula!

I tried to keep my card simple today with the focus being just on the cute little mice baking their sweet little cupcakes. I first stamped my image with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and colored everything with Copic Sketch Markers. I then used the coordinating Sweet Shop Die-namics to cut it out. I set this piece aside and then worked on a quick and easy background.

I trimmed a piece of Smooth White Card Stock to 4.25″ x 5.5″ and then masked off and area on the bottom portion of my card for the floor area. Once this area was covered, I then placed the English Brick Wall Stencil on top of my panel and lightly blended it with some Summer Splash Premium Dye Ink. I worked with a heavier hand from the center, lightly blending this ink out toward the sides to give it a faded look. I then removed my stencil and mask and covered the top portion of my card so that I could lightly blend some Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide Ink for the floor.

I then stamped my sentiment with Black Ink onto the lower right corner and lastly added my image with some 3D Foam Adhesive Squares for added dimension.

Make sure to stop by the MFT Blog for more release sneak peeks and inspiration! Don’t forget to leave a comment there for a chance to win a $75 MFT Gift Voucher!
