MFT Stamps | January Outside the Box Challenge – Love Is in the Air

January 23, 2022

Hello friends! We have a brand new Outside the Box Challenge for you! The theme for this month is “Love Is in the Air”. Your goal for this challenge is to create a box card (using any one of the MFT Outside the Box products) featuring a love-theme.

You have until Thursday, February 17th, at NOON EST to enter your creations! Each entry will have the chance to be randomly selected for a $50 MFT Gift Voucher! You can find more challenge details and enter your projects HERE

For my card today, I used both the new “Love to My Gnomies” and “Love You Gnome Matter What” Stamp Sets. I combined them with the gorgeous Outside the Box Level Up Die-namics.

All non-affiliated links to the products that I used will be listed at the bottom of this post.

I stamped my images onto a piece of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110lb Card Stock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic Sketch Markers. I used the coordinating die-namics to cut them out. For my card base, I die cut the box from a piece of Summer Splash Card Stock and layered it with some Sweet Plaid Patterned Paper. I also added some clouds using the Outside the Box Clouds Die-namics. I blended my background sky with a mix of MFT Summer Splash and Sno Cone Premium Dye Inks.

I finished my card by heat embossing my sentiment onto a strip of Black Licorice Card Stock and trimming it down with my paper trimmer.

Copic Colors Used:

  • Pinks: RV00, RV52, RV55, RV66
  • Teals: G0000, G00, BG23, BG18
  • Whites/Grays: 0, C00, C1, C3
