pawty time with mft stamps

The MFT Stamps March 2023 release is available now so let's pawty!!! And by that, I of course mean let's make cards!

This birthday card is perfect for the dog lovers in my life! I stamped, cut and colored a pup from the ADORABLE Presents and Pupcakes set.

I love to combine stamped & die cut sentiments so I often use alphabet dies to cut a word from one of the sentiment stamps. Then I mask the sentiment to stamp it selectively and then replace the missing word with the die cut one. Was that a confusing explanation? LOL!

In this case I masked the "let's pawty like it's your birthday" to only stamp "it's your birthday". 

I made the die cut "pawty" by ink blending Distress Ink Carved Pumpkin on white cardstock, placing the Diagonal Stripes stencil over it and blending more Pumpkin ink. Then I die cut the letters with my favorite alphabet set, Modern Serif Alphabet. I decided to give the word a little more dimension by cutting two more of each letter and adhering them together.

Make sure to pop over to the MFT blog to see more of the new release!

Thanks for stopping by!
