Fill the Season with Warm Memories with MFT Stamps

 

 

It is that time of the year where card-makers all over the world get together and join this amazing opportunity offered by My Favorite Things.  It is the 2020 Card Design Superstar and I am super excited to participate again this year.  This is my entry for the Coloring Virtuoso category.

 

 

For my project, I am showcasing the Birdie Brown Fall Friends stamp set and coordinating dies, along with the Stacey Yacula’s Scene Builder stamp set and Tucked-In Turf Horizontal Die-namics.

 

To begin, I stamped the Trees and hills on a panel of Bristol smooth white card stock.  I also stamped the same image on masking paper and used my precision snips to fussy-cut my mask and adhered it on my panel.  I ink-blended the background with Spun Sugar and Tumbled glass distress oxide inks. 

 

I smooshed Aged Mahogany on an acrylic block and added water, then use my watercolor brush to add texture to my background.  I picked up the excess with some paper towel.  I gently removed the mask so I can ink-blend the grassy hills with Antique Linen and Scattered Straw.  I colored the trees with Spectrum Noir Alcohol markers.  Next, I stamped my focal images on some Neenah solar white card stock using Rustic Brown alcohol-proof ink and colored them in with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.  I used the coordinating dies to die-cut them out.

 

To create my scene, I die-cut the grass panel using the Tucked-In Turf Horizontal Die-namics and ink-blended this piece with Crushed Olive and Forest Moss distress oxide inks.  These colors blend really well together!  I adhered the grass panel on my ink-blended background and added the images.  Here’s a closer look:

 

 

I finished my design by using my white gel pen to add more texture to the girl’s scarf and stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black ink.  I really LOVE Autumn and this stamp set is one of my favorites from MFT Stamps.  Here’s another look:

 

 

I hope you like my card today.  Please wish me luck that I get picked this year!  The supplies I use are listed and linked below.  Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!
