MFT Stamps | February Outside the Box Challenge – Outdoor Scenes

February 26, 2021

Hello friends! It’s time for a brand new Outside the Box Challenge from MFT Stamps! For anyone that has followed my work over the past few years, you’ll know that creating box cards is my favorite type of card to make. The addition of the Outside the Box Series from MFT Stamps has made creating box cards that much easier!

I combined the Outside the Box Level Up Die-namics along with the Birdie Brown “Every Day is a Picnic” and “Koala-ty Time” Stamp Sets for my outdoor scene today.

Check out this quick 1-minute video here that shows you how easy it was to put together this box card! I did some ink blending for my sky and grass portions, but you can simply use colored card stock or patterned paper to save even more time.

I stamped all of my images onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock, colored them with Copics, and used the coordinating die-namics to cut them out.

Copic Color Blends Used:

  • Skin: E0000, E000, E21, E04
  • Greens: YG01, YG06, YG17, YG67
  • Blues: B000, B01, B04, B06
  • Whites: 0, C00, C0, C2, C4
  • Browns: E31, E23, E25
  • Hair: E50, E53, E55, E57

For my background, I quickly blended some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink and splattered it with diluted opaque white and blue paints. For my grass, I diecut the pieces from another piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and blended them with the new Sour Apple and Field Day Premium Dye Inks.

    Adorable! I may have to break down and get these out of the box dies yet😊

    Loved that you had a video on this, always enjoy your posts but this was a treat to watch you craft. I too love my Outside the Box die set and the many different scenes you can use with them. Thank you for sharing.
