Hello friends! There are only 4 days left until the latest release from MFT Stamps becomes available! My card today features the “Hugs Make Everything Better” Stamp Set illustrated by Stacey Yacula.
This set is packed with so many adorable images! I stamped all of my images onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock, colored them with Copic Markers, and used the coordinating die-namics to cut them out.
For quick reference, here’s a list of all the Copic colors that I used. It may look like a lot of colors, but if you look closely, you’ll see that many of the colors are repeats for different parts of each image. When coloring a set, I usually try to coordinate the colors that I use so that they go well together on the same card.
I ended up using only a few of the images on my card today but I love how the color of the foxes contrasts with the colors of the base of my card. For my card base, I used a piece of the new Poppin’ Polka Dots Paper Pad that I had trimmed to 4.25″ x 5.5″ and adhered it with double sided tape runner to a 4.25″ x 5.5″ A2 top folding card base. I then layered it with both some white and Blue Yonder Prestige Card Stock. My first white layer measures 3 3/8″ x 4 5/8″, my blue layer measures 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″, and my last layer (which has the ink blending) was diecut using one of the Stitched A2 Rectangle STAX Die-namics Set 2.
For my ink-blended portion, I had cut a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock (prior to diecutting it with the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics) and lightly blended the top section with some Blue Yonder Premium Dye Ink. I then splattered it with both water and diluted Blue Yonder Premium Dye Ink.
For my second set of projects today, I made some generic box cards using each of the Outside the Box base Die-namics (listed below) and combined them with the new Box Card Bouquet Die-namics. How fun are these little bouquets of flowers!? They’re perfect for sending Mother’s Day Cards as well as just an everyday bouquet for any occasion that you can send to a friend! I showed a few examples where you can really dress them up and make the bouquet rather large, or where you can keep it fairly simple.
If you notice, I also used the new Drop-In Sentiment Strips Die-namics on the Shadow Box Card above. These are a perfect way to add more color and style to your card and let your sentiment be seen on the top section of the box card instead of the bottom.
Lastly, here’s some quick examples of the new Shadow Box Swag Die-namics and the Box Card Greetings Die-namics. The Shadow Box Swag (inner box card banners) are perfect for adding more dimension and fun to your shadow box cards. The Box Card Greetings create another way of adding 3D sentiments to your box cards.
