MFT Stamps | April Slimline Challenge – Spring Has Sprung

April 15, 2021

Hello friends! Welcome to a brand new Slimline Challenge from MFT Stamps! Come play along for a chance to win a $50 MFT Gift Voucher! One luck winner will be chosen at random. You can upload your creations HERE via the MFT Blog.

I stamped all of my images from the “Tweet Friends” Stamp Set onto a sheet of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110lb Card Stock, colored them with Copic Markers, and used their coordinating die-namics to cut them out. I ended up not using the mushrooms that I colored but I wanted to include them in the chart above anyway.

I trimmed another piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock to 3.5″ x 8.5″ and blended an area for my background sky with Squeezed Lemonade, Tattered Rose, and Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Inks. I splattered this area with both diluted opaque white paint and diluted Worn Lipstick Distress Ink for added interest. For my grass area, I used the Slimline Grassy Hills Die-namics with some white card stock. I blended my grass with Shabby Shutters Distress Oxide ink and once again added a few ink splatters. To line everything up, I used the Slimline Starter Die-namics to cut both my grass and my background. I adhered these pieces to both a white and yellow card stock layer and stamped my sentiment with Black Ink onto the top right corner of my card.

Lastly, I added my images with 3D Foam Adhesive Tape for added dimension.

Head on over to the MFT Blog for more challenge inspiration as well as the link to upload your creations!

    Delightful card, Rachel. Those birds are lovely in teal and I can just about hear them singing. Love the colors you chose for them and for the ink blended background. Fun sentiment, too. 😉 All around fun card in a fun new size. 🙂

    The one thing that says Spring is all the singing birds… I have loads including bluebirds! They sing a very sweet song. Love the coloring Rachel and that slimline grass die is one I recently purchased. Great Job!
