Hello friends! The amazing October Release from MFT Stamps is now available! Do you have a favorite product that you can’t wait to get your hands on? I have one more project to share with you today featuring the adorable Holiday Penguins Stamp Set illustrated by Birdie Brown.

I created a single-layer slimline card that I colored with Copic Markers. To start, I first trimmed a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock to 3.5″ x 8.5″ and stamped all of my images with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. Next, I covered each of my images with some Gina K Designs Magic Masking Paper that I had stamped and fussy cut to match each image. I then used the Stitched Slimline Snowdrifts Die-namics to cut a mask for the bottom of my card. I love how the stitching showed through on my card after I ink blended my background!

For my background, I blended a mix of Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio, and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Inks. I then splattered this blending lightly with water and let it sit for about 30 seconds before blotting it dry with a paper towel. I then splattered it with diluted white and green paint for added interest. Once I was finished with my background, I removed my masking pieces and set the entire piece aside to dry before coloring it.

Copic Color Combos Used:

  • Snow and Light Blue Ornaments and Hats: B0000, B00, B01, 0
  • Oranges: Y35, YR04, YR18
  • Greens: YG03, YG09, YG67, G28
  • Browns: E31, E23, E25, E29
  • Black: C5, C7
  • White: 0, C0, C2, C4
  • Teals: G000, BG11, BG13, BG49
  • Reds: R14, R46

Lastly, I stamped my sentiment onto the top right corner of my card with black ink.
