MFT Stamps | May Release Countdown – Only 4 Days Left!

May 1, 2020

Hello friends! I have one more post to share with you today featuring the newest stamp set illustrated by Stacey Yacula! The Always Bring a Smile Stamp Set is filled with so many amazing images to work with!

I created a circle-shaped card today using the A2 Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics. For my first background layer, I used some new patterned paper from the fun Woodgrain Whimsy Paper Pad. I then diecut some more circles for layers and blended the inside circle lightly with some Blue Breeze Ink for the sky. Next, I diecut some grass using the Grassy Fields Die-namics from white card stock and blended it with some Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Ink. I then ran this piece through my machine once more and diecut the bottom portion of it with the same stitched circle die that I used for my background. Following that, I embossed my sentiment with Fine Detail White Embossing Powder onto the front of my grass strip.

I stamped my images onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb with Copic friendly Black Ink, colored them with Copic Markers, and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

Copic Colors Used:

  • Browns: E30, E31, E23, E25, E29
  • Red Mushroom: R02, YR04, R14, R46
  • Greens: YG01, YG03, YG17
  • Mushroom Stem: W00, W0, W2, W4
  • Blue Mushroom: B21, B24, B26, B39
