MFT Stamps | September Release Countdown – Halfway There!

September 5, 2020

Hello friends! We’re halfway through the MFT September Release Countdown! My card today features the latest stamp set illustrated by Stacey Yacula. I stamped all of my images from the Christmas Cheer Stamp Set onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock, colored them with Copic Markers, and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

Copic Color Combos Used:

  • Bunny: W00, W0, W2, W4
  • Tree: YG01, G40, G43, G46
  • Reds: R14, R29, R59
  • Teals: G000, BG11, BG13, B49
  • Fox: YR00, YR02, Y35, YR18, E09

Once my images were complete, I set them aside to work on my background. I trimmed a piece of Smooth White Card Stock to 4.25″ x 5.5″ and blended the top portion with both MFT Sno Cone and Berrylicous Premium Dye Ink. I then splattered this blending with both water and diluted Opaque White Paint as well as some diluted blue watercolor paint for added interest.

Next, I stamped my background onto another sheet of paper before die-cutting it. I lightly colored the snow drifts with B0000, B000, and B01 Copic Markers. Lastly, I stamped my sentiment and added my images with some 3D Foam Adhesive Tape for added dimension.

Such a talent! Your card is adorable and I think the way you showcase the individual images is so unique and fun. Thanks so much for all your hard work to celebrate the new release and all of your projects. I so appreciate the time and effort that goes into creating them. 🙂

    I love the shading you added to the snow drifts. I will have to give that technique a try when I do some snow. Thanks so much for sharing your ideas with this wonderful release.

      Thank you, Lynn! I sometimes like to add a touch of color so that they stand out more. It’s super easy! 🙂
