MFT Stamps | January MFT & Friends

January 12, 2021

Hello crafty friends! The January Release from My Favorite Things is now available for purchase! I have one last project to share with you today featuring the BB ‘Hug It Out’ stamp set.

This one is similar to the first one that I created except that I used colors more similar to Valentines Day. I first trimmed a piece of Neenah Solar White Card Stock to slightly larger than 4.25″ x 5.5″ and stamped my image onto the center of the card. I stamped the image again onto a sheet of masking paper and then fussy cut it out so that I could place it on top of of the exact image on my card front. With the masking paper in place, I then blended my background with Picked Raspberry, Tattered Rose, and Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Inks.

Once I was done blending, I then splattered some diluted white and red paint on my card background and then removed the masking piece to allow my card to dry before coloring.

Once dry, I used Copic Markers to color my images.

Copic Color Combos Used:

  • Bear: W00, W0, W2, W4, W6
  • Raccoon: C00, C0, C2, C4, C6, C8
  • Squirrel: E31, E23, E25, E29
  • Owl: E51, E53, E55, E57
  • Bunny: E41, E42, E43
  • Fox: E50, E53; YR00, YR07, YR18
