MFT Stamps | November Release Countdown – Halfway There!

MFT Stamps | November Release Countdown – Halfway There!

November 7, 2020

Hello friends! We’re halfway to the big day and we still have so many new goodies to share with you!

My card today features some cute little birds from the Winter Songbird Stamp Set. I colored all of my images with Copic Markers after I stamped them onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used the coordinating die-namics to cut them out and then set them aside to create my card base.

Copic Color Combos Used:

  • Browns: E40, E42, E43, E44
  • Blues: B0000, B00, B02, B04
  • Reds: R24, R46, R89
  • Greens: YG01, YG06, YG17, YG67

I used a piece of Wild Cherry Card Stock from which to cut my base using the new Outside the Box Level Up Die-namics. I can’t say enough about this new box card die-namics set! It literally takes me less than 5 minutes to create my entire card base (including the inside shelves). I used the Outside the Box Snow Drifts Die-namics for my inner shelves to give my card more of a wintry look.

Before adding my stitched background piece, I blended it lightly with some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink and splattered it with diluted white and blue paints for added interest. Lastly, I stamped my sentiment with Black Ink to the front strip (before attaching it to my card) and adhered all of my images to the inside shelves with liquid adhesive.

    Holy bird seed… they are out doing some caroling! I love this so much Rachel. This level-up die-namics is really cool looking. The birds are so stinkin’ cute with their hats and scarves. Fabulous job, queen of the box cards

        Thank you so very much, Patti! That is so sweet of you to say! I have been toying with the idea of starting a YouTube channel but I am so pressed for time at the moment that I haven’t had the chance to do so. Hopefully one day! <3

    WOW!! Yours is / was my last site to visit today for the blog hop and I sort of gasped when I saw your card. My husband was heading to the kitchen and stopped in his tracks to ask “What’s wrong?” I said “Nothing is wrong… this woman’s work is just so gorgeous.” I just took in your card. I ADORE the colors you chose. This is the work of a master crafter! Wow, wow, wow…. I wish I could insert the “mind blown” emoji here!
    May blessings be heaped on you for the inspiration you provide,
    Lori S in PA

    Love the reds, blues, and greens. One bird reminds me of a strawberry. 😉
