MFT Stamps February Release Countdown | Halfway There!

MFT Stamps February Release Countdown | Halfway There!

February 1, 2020

Hello friends! We are halfway to the new MFT Stamps Release! I have a cute new Pure Innocence Stamp Set to share with you today called Birthday Besties. It comes with two fun images that you can place together or separately. I chose to put my images on separate cards today while using some of the new Birthday Brights Patterned Paper for my background.

I stamped all of my images with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock, colored with Copic Markers, and used the coordinating die-namics to cut them out. For my card above, I also used some Ripe Raspberry Prestige Card Stock to make the ballooned patterned paper pop.

I used the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics Set 1 & 2 to help get the perfect sized cardstock pieces for layering. On my front layer, I lightly blended a mix of Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Inks prior to adhering my image with 3D Foam Adhesive Squares.

I created my second card similarly to the first one except that I went with more purple tones and complimented my patterned paper with some Purple Rain Prestige Card Stock. I also used some Grapesicle Premium Dye Ink to add some interest to my background prior to stamping my sentiment in the top right corner.

For both of the girl’s clothing, I did a mix of Copic coloring and paper piecing. For the girl’s sweater in the card above, I used paper from the Petite Plaid Paper Pack and for the other girl’s dress, I used the Sweet Celebration Paper Pack.

All new items and product links will be available this coming Tuesday at 10 AM EST. Make sure to stop by the MFT Blog for more release inspiration and don’t forget to leave a comment there for a chance to win a $75 MFT Gift Voucher!
