MFT Stamps | June Release Countdown – Oceans of Fun + GIVEAWAY

June 9, 2023

Hello crafty friends! I have another ocean-themed card to share with you today. This time, I am featuring the Oceans of Fun Stamp Set.

I used Copic Markers (my favorite coloring medium) to color all of my images after I had stamped them onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I then used the coordinating Oceans of Fun Die-namics to cut them out. I set my images aside to work on my card background.

For my background, I first blended some Salvaged Patina, Peacock Feathers, Chipped Sapphire, and Black Soot Distress Oxide Inks onto a 4.25″ x 5.5″ piece of Smooth White Card Stock. I then added some water spatters and blotted it dry with a clean paper towel. Once my background was dry, I then lay the new Ocean Currents Background Stamp upright on my desk. I inked it with some Hero Arts Unicorn White Pigment Ink and then placed my inked background on top of it. This gave my inked background some extra wavy texture that looked both subtle and interesting.

Next, I allowed this piece to dry again and then die cut it with the largest of the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 2 Die-namics. I stamped my sentiment and then adhered this piece to my top-folding, A2 sized white card base. Next, I used the new Sand, Surf, and Sky Paper Pad to die cut my ocean floor with the wavy die from the new Under the Sea Die-namics. Lastly, I added my images with some 3D foam adhesive tape for a pop of dimension.
