MFT Stamps | June Vault Release Countdown – Four Days to Go!

June 18, 2021

Hello friends! Every so often, MFT has a vault release where they re-release items that have been previously retired. As you know, our wonderful illustrator Birdie Brown has retired (I’m still crying over this) but her illustrations will always live on at MFT. We have a treat for you this vault release! All of the items being release are a batch of previously retired Birdie Brown Stamp Sets! If you have not completed your collection of all of her designs, you will soon be able to!

I mad a simple low profile box card today to showcase some cute items from the BB Up in the Air Stamp Set. I first stamped my images onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I then colored them with Copic Markers, and next used the coordinating die-namics to cut them out.

Copic Colors Used:

  • Pinks: RV00, RV02, RV55, RV17
  • Blues: B0000, B00, B02, B04
  • Elephant: W00, W0, W1, W3
  • Dog: E31, E23, E25, E29
  • Baskets: E41, E43, E44, E47
  • Birds: YR20, YR21, YR23

I created the box base of my card using the Outside the Box Die-namics, Outside the Box Low Profile Add On, and a piece of Lazy Day Prestige Card Stock. I diecut some clouds from white card stock using the Outside the Box Clouds Die-namics. For my sky background, I lightly blended some Lazy Day Ink onto a piece of Smooth White Card Stock. To give some added interest, I splattered this piece with diluted opaque white acrylic paint as well as some watered down blue watercolor paint. Lastly, I added my images with pieces of clear acetate to make them appear as if they were flying up in the clouds.

The vault release will be available this coming Tuesday, June 22nd, at 10 AM EST. Make sure to stop by the MFT Blog for more release inspiration as well as a chance to win an MFT Gift Voucher!

Thank you so much for stopping by! If you liked this card and want some more crafty inspiration, please feel free to check out my INSTAGRAM feed!

      I am so glad that her designs will still live on at MFT too. Although, I am going to really miss seeing her new creations every month. However, I love the new illustrators that MFT now offers! ❤️

    I had heard that Birdie retired or was going to, but I was hoping it was a vicious lie! Sadly, not true. Glad that MFT is releasing some of the goodies I wish I had gotten the first time. This scene is so cute and soar-a-rifficly cute! I think these two pals look amazing in this box set.

    • rachelalvaradodesigns July 1, 2021 at 9:22 AM

      Thank you kindly, dear Liz! I am so happy that MFT will continue to offer all of her amazing illustrations!
