You're the Pumpkin Spice to my Latte - MFT Stamps

October 29, 2019

Happy Tuesday, crafty friends! I hope that you had a great weekend and start to your week! I was able to create one card over the weekend...I started it on Friday and didn't finish it until Sunday. Not the most productive weekend, but it sure is cute!

I grabbed this Sweater Weather in the Woods stamp set and coordinating dies from MFT Stamps the minute it released, because it has my hubby's favorite animal (the moose) and my favorite animal (the bear), and a sentiment about pumpkin spice lattes. My life was! The card is super simple, and I kept the focus on those cutie cream sweaters! I LOVE cream colored sweaters during fall - so cozy. I've used the MFT Wednesday Sketch 460 as the jumping off point for my card design.

The coffee toting critters were colored in using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. Then I used some dies in my stash to create the background. I've had this Perfectly Plaid Chill 6x6 paper pad from Lawn Fawn for a few years now, and I break it out at least once every fall. I LOVE the colors and the patterns. Finally, I stamped the sentiment to the diecut speech bubble in Gathered Twigs ink from Pinkfresh Studio.
1. Stamp the moose in onyx black Versafine to Strathmore Bristol paper.
2. Color them in with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers, then diecut.
3. Diecut a plaid panel & white cardstock panel with the largest Essentials Stitched Rectangle.
4. Diecut the stitched white panel with the speech bubble die.
5. Stamp the sentiment to speech bubble layer in Gathered Twigs ink.
6. Stamp the coffee steam to the plaid background in the same ink.
7. Adhere the speech bubble layer to the plaid background.
8. Mount that panel to an A2 card base with a full sheet of foam adhesive.
9. Adhere the critters to the lower left corner, popping the moose up with foam dots.
10. Accent with the Essentials: Jewels Mix in light blue, gold and metallic gold to finish.

As I mentioned, I colored all the stamping in with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. Rather than using water, I typically blend the colors with the Zig blender brush. Here is a list of all the colors I've used. At the end you will see some different set options, but I think the only set that will have all of the colors is the 90 set. This Zig Line Up link is one of the best ways to know what colors are offered in each set!

Finally, I did want to mention that I did end up cutting the sentiment apart in order to fit it to my card. I know that is not everyone's cup of tea, so you could mask it if you prefer. If you have any questions about my card, feel free to leave them in the comments and I will be sure to reply!

Before you move along with your day, I wanted to invite you to follow me on social media. I would love to be crafty friends!

Have a wonderful Tuesday!
