Hello crafty friends! There are only 24 hours left until the amazing April release from MFT Stamps becomes available! I have a card to share with you today that features the new “Better Together” Stamp Set. I created a shaped card using both images from the new stamp set as well as the A2 Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics.
For all of my images, I stamped them onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I used Copic Markers to color them and the coordinating “Better Together” Die-namics to cut them out.
I then die cut some Smooth White Card Stock using the second largest circle from the A2 Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics. I actually cut this piece twice. One for layering and the other to do my ink blending. On the ink-blended piece, I used some Sno Cone Premium Dye Ink for my sky. Once I finished blending, I then used the 3rd largest circle from the set to die cut it again. I like doing it this way so that there aren’t any harsh ink stains on my edges once I’m finished.
Next, I trimmed a few more pieces of Smooth White Card Stock in medium-sized rectangular shaped pieces (wider than my third smallest circle size) and blended them with Something Blue, Lazy Day, and Sno Cone Premium Dye Inks. I splattered them lightly with some water droplets as soon as I was done blending to give the water some texture and then die cut the tops of them with the Stitched Snow Drifts Die-namics and the bottoms of them with the 3rd largest A2 Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics to fit them perfectly on my card. Prior to adhering them, I had heat embossed my sentiment with Fine Detail White Embossing Powder. Lastly, I layered my card with my largest circle that I had die cut from a piece of Something Blue Card Stock.
