MFT Stamps | October Vault Release Countdown – Two Days Left!

October 25, 2020

Hello, crafty friends! It’s Day 2 of the My Favorite Things October Vault Release Countdown! For my card today, I am featuring the adorable Dashing Deer Stamp Set combined with the Birch Trees Die-namics.

To start my card, I first stamped my images with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I then colored all of my images with Copic Markers.

Copic Color Combos Used:

  • Deer: E31, E23, E25, E29
  • Reds: R14, R46, R89
  • Greens: YG01, YG07, YG17
  • Birds: E41, E42, E44
  • Blues: B21, B24, B37

I next cut them out using their coordinating die-namics and set them aside to work on the background. I trimmed a piece of Smooth White Card Stock to 4.25″ x 5.5″ and blended it with Blueprint Sketch and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink. I used my darker color toward the bottom of my card and worked my way up toward the top with my lighter color. Next, I diecut some birch trees from light gray card stock. I used some warm gray Copic Markers to add slight details before adhering them to my card base with liquid adhesive.

Once all of my trees were attached, I then splattered both the trees and the background with some diluted opaque white paint. Next, I diecut a stitched snow drift and stamped my sentiment onto the lower righthand corner of it. I then adhered it to my card base and lastly added my images with 3D Foam Adhesive Tape for added dimension.

    Such a sweet little scene. Looks like the one deer is playing and the other one is saying uh-oh! The little birdies are saying we tried to tell you! LOL That sky background is amazing. Excellent work, Rachel. 🙂
