MFT Stamps | May Release Countdown – Four Days to Go!

April 30, 2021

Hello crafty friends! For my second post for today, I have a fun box card to share with you featuring the new “We Beelong” Stamp Set. If you’ve been following my work for a while, you know that I’m a huge sucker for 3D cards and pop-up scenes. I absolutely love these little bears in this set today and when I first saw the one that was fishing, I knew that I wanted to make an open window box card.

I created my card base with the Outside the Box Die-namics. I diecut a window in the front of my card using one of the A2 Stitched Rectangle Die-namics Set 2. I created a wavy background from a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock that I had blended with Salty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink. I splattered this area with water to give the illusion of a watery background. I also added some fish and underwater greenery from the BB Gill Friends Stamp Set and some rocks from the BB Utterly Love You Set. I stamped all of my images with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock, colored them with Copic Markers, and cut them out with their coordinating die-namics.

Copic Colors Used:

  • Fishing Bear: E00, E11, E13, E19
  • Bear With Flower: E40, E42, E44
  • Yellows: Y11, Y13, Y15, V12
  • Greens: YG01, YG07, YG17
  • Oranges: YR02, YR07, YR18
  • Blues: B000, B01, B04
  • Black: W6, W9
