MFT Stamps | January Release Countdown – Halfway There!

January 9, 2021

Hello friends! We are halfway through the MFT January Release Countdown! I hope you are enjoying all of the previews that you’ve seen so far! I have two cards to share with you today that showcase some more items from the upcoming release!

My first card features the new Friendly Unicorns Stamp Set combined with the Stitched Collage Frame Die-namics. I stamped all of my images onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock, colored them with Copic Markers, and used the coordinating die-namics to cut them out.

For my background, blended some Peacock Feathers and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Inks onto each grid piece and splattered them with some diluted opaque white paint as well as diluted blue watercolor paint.

Copic Color Blends Used:

  • Whites: 0, C00, C2, C4
  • Reds: R14, R46, R89
  • Oranges: YR02, YR07, YR18
  • Yellows: Y11, Y13, V12
  • Greens: YG01, YG06, YG17
  • Blues: B11, B13, B49
  • Violets: BV01, BV11, BV13
  • Pinks: RV00, RV52, RV55, RV66

For my second card, I created a fun pop-up Valentine’s themed card for the inside of a card. I used the new Heart Air Balloon Die-namics and strung a banner in between the balloons using the new Bitty Banner Alphabet Die-namics. I added some cute little cats from the new Mini Meows Stamp Set for a cute added touch. For my background, I diecut some stitched rectangles from Smooth White Card Stock and quickly blended them with some Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Ink.

    I love the rainbow of colors on the unicorns. My granddaughters love unicorns and they would love this one for sure. The banner between is such a cute idea… love it! Great job!
