Countdown Day 2: Dream Big – MFT Stamps

Hope you are enjoying all of the peeks at the new release! I always look forward to their monthly releases because the products are adorable and so versatile. But what I love the most is seeing how the other design team members interpret the same products – they are all SO incredible and unique! The best way to see inspiration from the rest of the team is to follow #mftstamps on Instagram or head over to the MFT blog or Youtube channel.

Today, I am featuring this adorable stamp set illustrated by Rachelle Anne Miller called Number Fun – 1. I assume that she will illustrate more sets like this with additional numbers. This set does not come with a coordinating die-namics so it is perfect for one layer cards. I did some simple fussy cutting so I could get some dimension on my card as I struggle with one layer cards. Dimension really is life! lol

  1. On an A2 panel of white cardstock, I stamped the main image in Number Fun – 1 in MFT Extreme Black ink. I fussy cut the top half of the piece of paper off so I could easily layer it on top of an ink blended panel. For the section between the number and the bunny, I carefully used a craft knife to trim out that area.
  2. I copic colored the image very simply.
  3. For the background panel, I ink blended an A2-sized panel of white cardstock with distress oxide inks. From bottom to top, I used milled lavender, shaded lilac, wilted violet, and prize ribbon.
  4. I splattered the panel with water, white acrylic paint, and the same distress oxide inks for additional texture.
  5. I die cut Over the Moon from vellum and added glitter brush marker over the entire die cut. I adhered it with a thin layer of liquid glue on the background. I find that adding a very thin layer of glue with my finger helps to hide any glue marks behind vellum. Finally, I die cut the Cloud Trio, inked with prize ribbon, and adhered the clouds.
  6. I popped up the top panel with foam tape and adhered it to the ink blended background.
  7. I stamped and white heat embossed one of the sentiments from the stamp set on black cardstock and trimmed it into a strip. I adhered the sentiment to the card front.
  8. Lastly, I embellished the card with clear drops.
