MFT Stamps | May Release Countdown – Five Days and Counting!

April 29, 2021

Hello friends! I am so excited to share with you a fun new stamp set illustrated by Birdie Brown. The Festive Old Friends Stamp Set is a brand new favorite of mine! I absolutely love all of the images in this set.

I stamped all of my images onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic Markers. I then used the coordinating die-namics to cut them out.

Copic Colors Used:

  • Skin Tones: E000, E00, E11, E3
  • Purples: V000, V01, V15, V17
  • Teals: BG10, BG32, BG15, BG18
  • Browns: E55, E57, E59
  • Green Balloon & Pants: G0000, G00, BG13, BG18
  • Yellows: Y11, Y13, Y15, V12
  • Grays: W00, W1, W3, W5
  • Blues: B000, B00, B02, B04
  • Light Pink Shirt: RV00, RV32, RV35
  • Gray Hair: C00, C1, C3

I created a 3.75″ x 8.75″ slimline card today featuring these images. For my card, I trimmed a piece of Neenah Solar White 110llb Card Stock to 3.75″ x 8.75″ and then masked off an area for the floor with some purple masking tape. I then blended my background with some Peacock Feathers and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Inks. Once my background was dry, I trimmed my card down by 1/8″ in both length in width and then adhered it to a 3.75″ x 8.75″ panel cut from Tropical Teal Prestige Card Stock.

Next, I stamped my sentiment and then lastly adhered my images to the front of my card with 3D Foam Adhesive Tape for added dimension.

      Thank you, Anne! It’s funny, but I feel like I know people in my life that match each of these images lol. The guy in the armchair reminds me of my dad. 😁
