Hello crafty friends! We’re kicking off the MFT Stamps September Release Countdown with a brand new, adorable stamp set illustrated by Stacey Yacula.
The “Christmas Tree Farm” Stamp Set will be available this coming Tuesday, September 13th, at 10 AM EDT. To start my card today, I stamped my images onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I then colored my images with Copic Markers (colors listed near bottom of post) and used the coordinating “Christmas Tree Farm” Die-namics to cut them out.
For my card base, I trimmed a piece of Jalapeño Popper Card Stock to 4.25″ x 5.5″ and layered it with some Smooth White Card Stock that I had die cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics Set 2. I then blended some Bundled Sage Distress Oxide Ink onto another piece of Smooth White Card Stock and lightly added some diluted opaque white ink spatters to resemble snow. Once this piece was dry, I then used the same A2 stitched rectangle die-namics as I did above and die cut it slightly smaller than my first layer of white card stock. Next, I stamped my sentiment at the top left side of my card with black ink.
I added some snow drifts by die cutting some pieces of white card stock with the Stitched Snow Drifts Die-namics. (See short video clip above for a quick tutorial on my card.) I also die cut these snowy hills again with the same A2 Stitched Rectangle Die that I used for my layer with the green ink blending so that they would line up perfectly once I adhered them to my card base.
Lastly, I added my images with some 3D Foam Adhesive Tape for a pop of dimension.
