easy masking + halfway to the mft february release

We are halfway to the big MFT February release and I've got another little peek plus a tip on easy stamp masking!

I love the adorable Hip Hip Yay Day sentiments and Hip Hip Yay Numbers! I think the combinations of sentiments are boundless but I wanted to start with something that said "hip hip yay..." in honor of the stamp names.

I created a really clean & simple card by stamping the sentiments directly on a white folded card. But I needed the "th" so I did a little easy masking with the birthday stamp. (BTW, there is an adorable Hip Hip Yay Alphabet that I could have used for the "th" but the size is a little larger and I wanted the 8 to be the only thing that was a larger size.)

Before inking I used low-tack tape to cover everything but the "th". I removed the tape before stamping and voila, only the "th" stamped on the card.

The 8 is stamped, die cut and foam mounted. I added a little bit of color with Copic markers and finally I finished with a few rainbow rhinestones.

Here's a quick recap of the MFT products I used:
