MFT Stamps | January Vault Release Countdown – Three Days to Go!

January 16, 2021

Hello friends! We’re kicking off the MFT Vault Release Countdown with some fun new re-releases of previously retired products. My card today features the Friends Like Us Stamp Set combined with the PI You’re My Person Set. I created a simple card today and used one of my favorite sentiments from this cute stamp set.

I stamped my image onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock, colored it with Copic Markers, and used the coordinating die-namics to cut it out. I then trimmed a piece of yellow patterned paper from the Party Plaid Paper Pad to 4.25″ x 5.5″ and adhered it to a horizontal folding A2 card base. Next, I trimmed a piece of Smooth White Card Stock to 3.5″ x 4.75″ and rounded the corners using a corner punch.

I lightly blended some Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Ink to this white piece of card stock and then splattered the inked area with both diluted white and teal paints for added interest. Once dry, I then stamped my sentiment with black ink at the bottom portion of my card. I then adhered this piece to my card base with some 3D Foam Adhesive Tape. Lastly, I added my image to the front of my card with some more 3D tape for added dimension.

Copic Color Combos Used:

  • Skin: E0000, E000, E11, E04
  • Whites: 0, C0, C2, C4
  • Brown Shoes (on left): E23, E25, E29
  • Brown Shoes (on right): E43, E44, E47
  • Hair (on left): E31, E23, E25, E29
  • Hair (on right): E50, E53, E57
  • Warm Grays: W4, W6
  • Teals: G000, BG11, BG13

    Rachel I love this… I had a best friend when I was young, unfortunately we moved away from one an other and I recently learned she had passed away. This one brings back memories of all the fun we shared… thank you for that. Beautiful job!

      Thank you for your sweet words, Anne! I’m sorry to hear of the passing of your friend. Even if you lose touch with one another, one never forgets their childhood best friend. <3

    Love everything about your card!
    The patterned paper really sets off the other colors of the card.
    This would be so perfect as a Sister or Best friend card.
    Thanks for sharing your talent!
