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

October 2, 2020

Hello friends! For Day 4 of the MFT Release Countdown, I have a fun little 3D box card to share with you that features both the new Partners in Adventure Stamp Set along with the new Outside the Box Waves Die-namics.

To start, I first stamped all of my images with black ink onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I’ve mentioned it before but Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock is my go-to card stock for Copic coloring. I love the depth of coloring that you can achieve with this card stock without the colors bleeding.

Copic Color Combos Used:

  • Browns: E40, E41, E42, E44
  • Black: W5, W7, W9
  • Reds: R14, R46, R89
  • Yellows: Y11, Y13, V12
  • Teals: G000, BG11, BG13, BG49
  • Orange: YR02, YR04, YR18

I used the Outside the Box Waves Die-namics to create waves cut from Smooth White Card Stock. I blended the waves with both Peacock Feathers and Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide Ink and spattered each one lightly with water before blotting it dry with a clean paper towel. For my background, I blended it with Tumbled Glass, Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Inks. Lastly, I stamped my sentiment onto a strip of white card stock and adhered it to the front of my card.

    Love your box card Rachel! So cute! The colo blending is awesome,!

    I like the splatters you made with the oxide ink. I always feel that water makes my paper bumpy. I will get a paper towel handy and try it again! Thanks for the inspiration.

    Hi Rachel, I love all of the box cards you have been making. Can you please tell me if you alter the template? It looks like the box part may be shorter than the die. Thank you for sharing all of your wonderful ideas. I really enjoy seeing them.

    • rachelalvaradodesigns October 7, 2020 at 12:58 AM

      Hi Angie! Thank you for your sweet comments! Yes, it’s definitely shorter! You can cut the bottom template in half and get a similar result, but the layering pieces won’t match so I make my own.

  • Maureen Hampshire October 5, 2020 at 8:26 AM

    Another super cute card!

  • Hello, I'm Rachel! Thanks so much for dropping by and welcome to my blog! I love creating and am excited to share with you my love for card making and paper crafting.
