MFT Stamps | December Release Countdown – Sweet Skunks

December 9, 2021

Hello crafty friends! We’re kicking off the MFT December Release Countdown with some adorable new illustrations by Stacey Yacula. I used one of the images from the “Sweet Skunks” Stamp Set to create a sweet but simple card to share with you today.

I stamped my images onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I then used Copic Markers to color them and the coordinating “Sweet Skunks” Die-namics to cut them out.

Copic Colors Used:

  • Skunk: W00, W0, W1, W3, W5, W7, W9
  • Rock: C00, C1, C3, C5
  • Mushrooms: R05, R35, R39; E43, E44

I set these images aside and then cut a piece of Smooth White Card Stock with one of the A2 Double Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics. I lightly blended this piece with some Summer Splash Premium Dye Ink and then layered it with another piece of Smooth White Card Stock. After I stamped my sentiment, I used some adhesive foam to attach this piece to a 4.25″ x 5.5″ top-folding A2 card base that I had cut from a piece of Summer Splash Card Stock.

Lastly, I used some 3D Foam Adhesive Tape to add my images to the front of my card to give some added dimension and help my images to pop.

Head on over to the MFT Blog for more release sneak peeks and inspiration!

    Even though I’d be really leery to get close enough to hug a skunk, this one is absolutely adorable, Rachel. Great coloring and another fabulous single layer card. The red in the mushrooms is fantastic. 🙂

      Thank you so much, sweet friend! ❤️ I’d be leery too, LOL!

    I am seeing lots of skunks out there just in time for Valentines Day! So sweet… my daughter actually likes the smell when a skunk sprays, isn’t that NUTS?? Lovely job Rachel. TFS
