MFT Stamps | August Release Countdown + GIVEAWAY – 5 Days and Counting!

August 11, 2022

Hello crafty friends! It’s time for a brand new MFT Release Countdown! The August Release will be available, this coming Tuesday, August 16th at 10AM EDT! I have a slimline card to show you today that features the brand new “Happy Pumpkin Season” stamp set illustrated by Stacey Yacula.

I first stamped all of my images onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock, colored them with Copic Markers, and used the “Happy Pumpkin Season” Die-namics to cut them out. I then created a card base from a piece of Summer Splash Card Stock measuring at 3.5″ x 8.5″. Next, I layered this piece with a 3.25″ x 8.25″ piece of Tropical Teal Card Stock, and then with a 3″ x 8″ piece of Smooth White Card Stock. I then cut another piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock to 3″ x 8″ and lightly blended it with Peacock Feathers and Salvaged Patina Distress Inks to create my sky. Once I was done ink blending, I then trimmed this piece down to 2.75″ x 7.75″ to get rid of any harsh ink stains left on the sides of my card stock during the ink blending process.

Next I trimmed a 7.75″ x ” piece of Smooth White Card Stock with one of the Slimline Grassy Hills Die-namics and then quickly blended it with some Antique Linen Distress Oxide Ink. Lastly, I stamped my sentiment and then added my grassy piece, along with my images, to my card base with 3D Foam Adhesive Tape for lots of dimension.

Copic Colors Used:

  • Oranges: YR02, YR04, YR68, E09
  • Reds: R14, R35, R46, R59
  • Teals: G0000, G00, BG34, BG18
  • Wagon: E30, E31, E23, E25, E29
  • Bear: E40, E42, E44
  • Bunny: 0, C00, C1, C3
  • Dark Gray: W3, W5, W7

    Pumpkin season is just the best… love that sweet tractor. My husband’s is blue, but kind of that shape. Can you believe how quickly the fall season is coming? Love the whole design. I would love a hayride on this sweet wagon. Great job!
