MFT Stamps | August Release Countdown – Only 24 Hours Left!

August 10, 2020

Hello friends! There are only 24 hours left until the August Release from My Favorite Things becomes available! I created two projects today that feature both the new Ghoulish Greetings Background Stamp along with the Halloween Hoo Stamp Set.

To start my projects, I first stamped my images from the Halloween Hoo Stamp Set onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I then colored these images with Copic Markers and used the coordinating Halloween Hoo Die-namics to cut them out.

For my first card, I trimmed a piece of Wild Wisteria Prestige Card Stock to 4.25″ x 5.5″ and stamped it in Purple Rain Premium Dye Ink with the Ghoulish Greetings Background Stamp. I then trimmed this piece down to 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ and layered it with a white vertical A2 card base. I then blended a purple background with Distress Oxide Inks (Milled Lavender, Dusty Concord, Wilted Violet, Hickory Smoke, and Black Soot) onto another piece of Smooth White Card Stock, masking a circular area for the moon.

I cut this piece down and layered it with a white stitched rectangle using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics Set 2. I then heat embossed my sentiment from the new Sassy Pants Spooktacular Stamp Set with Fine Detail White Embossing Powder. Lastly, I added my images with 3D Foam Adhesive Squares for some added dimension.

For my second project, I did the background similar to the first except that I used a piece of Orange Zest Prestige Card Stock and stamped my background with Black Ink.

I added a circle to the center of my card by diecutting some Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock and the A2 Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics. I also added some large letters using the Impact Alphabet Die-namics.

    Nice to see the Ghoulish Greetings in different colors. Both cards are very nice & look really different.

    Both of your cards are really good. I love the way moon glows in the purple card and the border from the circle stax die is very impactful.
