MFT Stamps | May Release Countdown – 2 Days to Go!

May 3, 2020

Hello friends! There are only two days left until the latest release from My Favorite Things has become available! I have another new stamp set to share with you today called “Mother’s Day Bouquet.”

I created a simple but elegant card today using this set. I first stamped my images onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and then colored them with Copic Markers.

Copic Colors Used:

  • Blues: B000, B00, B01, B02, B04, B06
  • Vibrant Purples: B60, B63, B66
  • Greens: YG01, YG07, YG17, G28
  • Pinks: RV00, R81, RV55, RV66
  • Yellows: Y11, Y15, E34

Once I had finished coloring my images, I cut them out with their coordinating dies. I set them aside to work on the base of my card. I trimmed a vertical folding card base from white card stock to 4.25″ x 11″ and scored it at 5.5″. I then trimmed a blue piece of the new Woograin Whimsy Patterned Paper to 4.25″ x 5.5″ and adhered it to the top of my card base with some double-sided tape runner.

Next, I diecut a stitched rectangle from white card stock using the A2 Stitched Rectangle Dies Set 2. I lightly blended an area on this piece with some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink and then stamped my sentiment with Black Ink below. I adhered this piece in the center of my card base and added my images with some 3D Foam Adhesive Squares.

    I had to pop over to your blog after seeing your charming card today. This is just what I need to accompany my sweet zippered pouch Mother’s Day gifts. I love the simplicity of this stamp design. And as I said on your IG account, while I’m one who loves detail, I also love a less is more look when it’s appropriate. I’ve been sewing for the past several months and love the parallel between choosing fabric patterns and paper patterns. This new release would make a charming card to accompany the zippered pouches that pair a collection of floral fabric — a perfect Mother’s Day gift. Thank you for sharing your talents with us.

      Beautiful blues! You ink blending is really great! This will make such a cheerful Mothers Day card with the trying times we are all dealing with. You are such an inspiration! Thank you for sharing!

      You are such a sweetheart, my friend! Thank you for your lovely comments! 💗

    This is a really nice card. The wood-grain paper is a good compliment to the blue hues you have in your card. The farmhouse feel is super sweet for a Mom card! That pitcher is great!!!

    The blue shading in the background makes the vase and flowers pop. Beautiful choice of colors.l
