MFT Stamps | July Release Countdown – Four Days to Go!

July 3, 2020

Hello friends! Welcome to the My Favorite Things July Countdown Release! I have a fun birthday box card to share with you today that features the new Pawty Time Stamp Set illustrated by Stacey Yacula.

I stamped all of my images with Copic friendly Black Ink onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock, colored them with Copic Markers, and used the coordinating “Pawty Time” Die-namics to cut them out.

Copic Colors Used:

  • Warm Grays: W00, W0, W2, W4
  • Pinks: RV00, RV52, RV55, RV66
  • Teals: BG10, BG11, BG13, BG49
  • Purples: V00, V01, V12, V17, V09
  • Blues: B000, B01, B04, B06
  • Browns: E30, E31, E23, E25
  • Cool Grays: C00, C0, C2, C4

I created an A6 sized box card for my base using a single piece of 8.5″ x 11″ Card Stock, a paper trimmer, scissors, adhesive, and a scoring board. When folded flat, this card (4.5″ x 6.25″) fits perfectly into an A6 sized envelope.

For my layering colors, I used a pink piece of polka-dot patterned paper from the Summertime Polka Dots Paper Pad and a sheet of Summer Splash Prestige Card Stock. I also used the same card stock for the grass and used the Grassy Fields Die-namics to cut them out.

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

All products and product links will be available this coming Tuesday, July 7th, at 10 AM EDT!
