MFT Stamps | October Release MFT & Friends

October 5, 2021

Hello friends! The October Release is now available! Do you have a favorite item that you have your eye on? I have two more projects to share with you today that feature some new products in this amazing release!

My first project features the fun, new Selfies with Santa clear stamp set illustrated by Stacey Yacula. I created a clean and simple card using one of the images from this set. I used the new Cool Collab Paper Pad to create a pop of color for my card base. For the main portion of my card, I stamped my images with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and colored them with Copic Markers. I simply used a paper trimmer to cut out around the square frame of my image and then adhered it behind a stitched square window opening.

To create my window, I used the Selfie Square Die-namics on a piece of smooth white card stock. I next used the Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics to cut out a stitched rectangular frame from this piece as well. Lastly, I stamped my sentiment and then adhered this entire piece to my patterned card base.

Copic Colors Used:

  • Snowman: 0, W00, W1, W3
  • Penguin: 0, W00, W1, W3, W5, W7, W9
  • Reds: R14, R27, R46, R89
  • Teals: G000, BG11, BG13, BG49
  • Snowman Hat & Scarf: BG70, BG72, BG75, BG78
  • Background: G00

My next card is a mini slimline box card featuring the adorable penguins from the new “It’s Penguining to Look a Lot Like Christmas” Stamp Set. I absolutely LOVE the new Mini Slimline Box Card Die-namics! This sized card fits perfectly into a sized 7 coin envelope to make easy shipping or attaching to a present.

I stamped my penguins onto another piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock, colored them with Copic Markers, and used their coordinating die-namics to cut them out.

Copic Colors Used:

  • White: 0, W00, W1, W3
  • Black: W5, W7, W9
  • Gift Bag: E40, E42, E44
  • Reds: R14, R27, R46, R89
  • Feet: YR02, YR07, YR18

I added some snow drifts to my card using the new Mini Slimline Outside the Box Snow Drifts Die-namics. For my snowy background, I simply blended some Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio, and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks. I also added a few snowy white pine trees using the new Evergreen Die-namics that I had cut from white card stock.

Here are some other projects that I made using products from this month’s release. Simply click on any photo above for more details.
