I’m Under Your Spell with MFT Stamps

Hello MFT fans! I am super excited to share with you my entry for the MFT Stamps 2021 Card Design Superstar. This card is for the Coloring Virtuoso category.

I started by stamping the images from the Witch Way Is The Candy stamp set with Memento Tuxedo black ink on some Neenah solar white card stock. I colored the images in with my alcohol markers. Even though I have the “older” coordinating dies for this stamp set, I fussy-cut the images with my precision snips. I didn’t want the white border around the images because of the black background.

Next, I die-cut some black card stock, as well as some Bristol smooth white card stock using the Outside The Box Level Up Die-namics. Using the Bristol smooth die-cuts, I ink-blended them all with Seedless Preserves, Carved Pumpkin and Wilted Violet distress oxide inks. I sprayed the pieces with water using distress sprayer and picked up the excess with paper towel. I then assembled the main box card with liquid glue then added the colored panel using my tape runner.

Next was to create my Halloween scene. I die-cut the grass panels using the Outside The Box Grassy Hills Die-namics with some black licorice card stock. I cut the flaps and adhered on the box card with liquid glue.

Now that I have everything colored and assembled, I am ready to put my scene together. I adhered my focal image (being the star of the show) to the foreground. I added the frog and pumpkins with liquid glue.

Next, I have to decorate the background to finish my scene. I die-cut the tree using a retired Trio of Trees Die-namics from MFT with the Sweet Celebration 6×6 Patterned Paper (also retired). I adhered it on the background with liquid glue.

The moon was die-cut using the older Witch Way Is the Candy Die-namics on some Bristol smooth white card stock and inked up with Mustard Seed and Carved Pumpkin distress oxide inks.

To finish my spooky scene, I die-cut the black clouds using the Cloud Cover Die-namics on some black card stock. The first piece was adhered with liquid glue on top of the moon. The other cloud was adhered on acetate sheet and added on the card behind the witch for added dimension. Take a quick look here:

I hope you like my spooky scene. Some of the retired items are of course no longer available. Therefore, I have linked the current supplies that are similar to the retired products I used for my card. Thanks for stopping by today and happy stamping!


A Halloween Hello



The MFT Card Design Superstar is finally here! The card that you see below is my entry for the “Clean and Simple Genius” category.


Sometimes, less is really more! I wanted to create a clean and simple Halloween card with non-traditional Halloween colors.  I also like the white pumpkins as fall decor, which is why I colored the pumpkins with light gray Copic markers. I wanted my focal point to be on the little witch and her cat. These images are so adorable!


I started out by stamping my images on Bristol Smooth 110 lb. white card stock using my MFT stamps Black Licorice hybrid ink. I used Copic markers to color my images in and used the coordinating dies to die-cut the images.


For my “subtle” sky scene, I used the clouds stencils with my light blue inkpad, lightly sponging the color on the card stock.


For the frame, I used my MFT Stamps Blueprints No. 32. I also die-cut the birch trees with the Birch Trees dies, also by MFT then lightly colored it with my Copic markers to give it some dimension.


To finish my design, I stamped the sentiment “A Halloween Hello” with my memento fog ink.


Here’s my card:



What do you guys think?  I hope you like my clean and simple card.  The supplies I used to create the card are listed and linked to the MFT online store.  Wish me luck and thank you for stopping by!
