Today’s the day! The May MFT Stamps release is live! What’s on your wish list? Of course, I have more inspiration for you. I made more teacher appreciation cards because I needed more cards for my husband’s colleagues. I will probably make even more very similar to these as they were pretty clean and simple.
I really enjoyed inking up these cute, little apples. I used finger daubers and distress oxide ink to create these blends. The finger daubers help control ink placement and the oxide ink blends nicely no matter how much ink you put down, so it works well for quick coloring. A few of the other MFT design team members colored the apples with alcohol markers, and they look incredible! I encourage you to check out the rest of the team and their card designs by searching #mftstamps on Instagram.
- Die cut all the pieces for both cards. For the mini slimline card, I used the Back to School Die-namics. On the A2 card, I used the Dry Erase Whiteboard Die-namics.
- I die cut all the pieces in white cardstock and either inked with distress oxide inks or copic markers. I used the following oxide inks – green apples: twisted citron, crushed olive, rustic wilderness; red apples: tattered rose, festive berries, aged mahogany. I splattered the apples with water and added dots with copic markers. I love the way the apples look.
- For the A2 card:
- I cut some quarter inch strips of blue and red cardstock to create a small striped panel. I adhered it to an A2 panel of white cardstock and die cut with the Double Stitched Rectangle STAX. I stamped a sentiment on the whiteboard from Teach, Sleep, Repeat. I arranged the die cut pieces and adhered to the card front.
- For the mini slimline card:
- I die cut a panel of white with the Wonky Stitched Mini Slimline Die-namics, and added a dark blue matte behind the panel. I added a sentiment at the bottom from Teach, Sleep, Repeat, arranged the die cuts, and adhered with foam tape.
I hope I’ve inspired you through these countdown days! Thank you so much for following along! Have a great, crafty day.
