MFT Stamps | August Release Countdown – Five Days to Go!

August 6, 2020

Hello friends! We’re kicking off the amazing MFT August Release Countdown with some new adorable images from Birdie Brown! My card today features the Adorable Adventures Stamp Set. I stamped all of my images with black ink onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock, colored them with Copic Markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

For the base of my card, I used the large die from the new and amazing Slimline Starter Die-namics. For my background, I blended some Blueprint Sketch and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Inks for my sky, Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Ink for my grass, and some Antique Linen and Brushed Corduroy Distress Oxide Inks for the “dirt” portion in the front of my scene. I added some diluted ink splatters to each piece for some added interest.

For my grassy hill in the background, I diecut it using the new Slimline Grassy Hills Die-namics. I absolutely love these grassy dies because they make it so easy to cut out added scenery for slimline cards.

Copic Color Combos Used:

  • Skin: E0000, E000, E21, E04
  • Warm Browns: E40, E41, E42, E43, E44
  • Sign: E30, E31, E23, E25, E29
