Countdown Day 3: Hello Friend – MFT Stamps

It’s day 3 and I’m hopping back to fall with this super cute set by YUZU called Hoodie Weather! I think her illustration style closely matches the beloved Birdie Brown who retired so it’s a great addition to the MFT line. I’ve really been trying to step up my coloring so I’ve been watching a lot of coloring videos by my friend Elaine. I want to learn how to color people, hair, and critters better. Still a work in progress, but I really like how this turned out. I recommend you check out Elaine’s channel, Marker Geek, on YouTube if you struggle with coloring people too. Beyond people, she has some wonderful, easy to follow tutorials. Thanks Elaine!!

STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Stamp and copic color images from YUZU Hoodie Weather. I used a wide variety of markers and forgot to write them down before I cleaned up. Die cut with the coordinating die-namics. Add details like white pen detail and black glaze pen to the eyes and nose. Set these images aside.
  2. Trim a 4 x 5.25 inch piece of pattern paper from the Joyful Plaid paper pad. Adhere to an A2 card base.
  3. Die cut three sections of grass with the Grassy Terrain Die-namics from light yellow cardstock. One of my favorite techniques is ink blending on colored cardstock. Ink blend each section with orange and brown ink for a little depth. I love that it looks like fallen leaves. Splatter some clean water for additional texture.
  4. Die cut the Winter Trees Die-namics from light tan cardstock. Add additional details with a copic marker in a slightly darker shade.
  5. Adhere the grass and trees in-between with liquid glue to the card base.
  6. Adhere the colored images with foam tape on top.
  7. Ink blend a piece of scrap yellow cardstock with a little orange ink. Stamp a sentiment from Hoodie Weather and trim into a strip.
  8. Wrap gold twine around the sentiment and adhere with foam tape.

Hope you enjoyed this! Only a few more days until the release is live. Find more cardmaking inspiration and tutorials on the MFT YouTube channel.

Happy crafting,
