MFT Stamps | November Countdown Release – Five Days to Go!

November 5, 2020

Hello friends! We’re kicking off the countdown for the November Release with a fun new set illustrated by Birdie Brown as well as a brand new box card die-namics! I absolutely love the Outside the Box Level Up Die-namics! It’s super easy to use and makes the cutest box cards!

To start, I first stamped all of my images with black ink onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and colored them with Copic Markers.

Copic Color Combos Used:

  • Pinks: RV00, RV52, RV55, RV66
  • Teals: G000, BG11, BG13, BG49
  • Jeans: B91, B93, B95, B97
  • Dark Blue: B72, B75, B78
  • Dark Grays/Black: W4, W5, W7
  • Light Skin Tones: E0000, E000, E21, E04
  • Medium Skin Tones: E13, E15, E35

I then cut my images out with their coordinating die-namics and set them aside to work on my base. For my card base, I used a piece of Summer Splash Cardstock and used the new Outside the Box Level-Up Die-namics to cut out my box card base. I then substituted my shelves with the Outside the Box Snow Drifts to look like layers of snowy hills.

I then added my images to my card base and stamped my sentiment from the new Frost Loving Friends Stamp Set illustrated by Stacey Yacula.

The new release and release links will all be available this coming Tuesday, November 10th at 10 AM EST!

Make sure to stop by the MFT Blog for more sneak peeks and inspiration!

    Love your color choices. So cheerful and bright. I’m so ready for quiet times in the winter, and spontaneous moments of play.

    Ahhh, Rachel. I just bought the box card dies and got them almost 2 weeks ago I made one card with the last release of cardinals and it came out cute, but all the layers in the box are the same height. This new set of dies makes them like bleachers at a ball park and make it so much easier to see the images. I love this set since I adore winter and definitely need to win this challenge so I can afford another set of dies to go with the box die set! I adore this card and am going to save it on my desktop for my background. 🙂
