September Release! – MFT Stamps

Woohoo! It’s release day! Are you eyeing anything in particular? Today, I wanted to share a shaped card. I don’t make shaped cards often (other than square), so it is fun to switch things up from time to time. You can use this same, very simple method to create a shaped card from basically any shape. I paired the unique shape with patterned paper and the adorable Cozy Days With You stamp set to create a little autumn scene. I can feel that cool autumn breeze now 🙂

  1. Create a shaped card base using the Elegant Stitched STAX Die-namics. Using the largest die cut a panel of white cardstock and a panel of Jalapeño Pepper cardstock.
  2. Score the white panel about 0.5 – 0.75 inches from the top and add scor tape above the fold. Fold the scored bit back and forth a couple times to loosen it up. Adhere to the green panel.
  3. Cut two additional layers with smaller dies from Elegant Stitched STAX Die-namics from vellum and patterned paper from the Joyful Plaid paper pad.
  4. Splatter the vellum layer with gold watercolor.
  5. Stamp and copic color several images from the Cozy Days With You stamp set. Die cut with the coordinating die-namics. For such small images, I used a bunch of copic markers so you could definitely simply if you prefer.
    • Browns: E37, E35, E31
    • Grays: W6, W4, W3
    • Reds: R24, R08, R05, R02, R12
    • Greens: G99, G94, G24
    • Yellows: Y38, Y35, Y32
    • Oranges: YR09, YR07, YR15, YR16
  6. Adhere the layers and images together on the card front. Hide glue behind the images to adhere the vellum layer down.
  7. Using the banner die in Tag Builder Blueprints 5 Die-namics, die cut one banner from Poppin’ Polka Dots patterned paper and one from white cardstock.
  8. Stamp the sentiment on the white banner and cut out the front portion. Adhere to the patterned paper banner. Color the inside folds of the banner with a copic marker.
  9. Pop up the sentiment banner with foam tape at the top.
