Fab Grandpa


Hi everyone,

Welcome to day 4 of the MFTeasers in preparation of the release of the new stamp sets which are all due to be released by MFT Stamps this month. The new products will be available on Tuesday 11th June at 10 PM in the MFT Boutique.

Of course being Saturday it is also challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Our challenge hostess Kristine Reynolds has another fun challenge for us.

Father’s Day-Don’t wait till the last minute to make those Father’s Day cards for those special dad’s in your life. Father’s Day will be here before you know it so let’s see your cards for that special, uncle, grandfather, dad, or son in your life.

For my card today have used a few new sets from MFT Stamps. I started by using Kraft card stock and I stamped the sentiment from the Bold Sentiments stamp set (this month’s triple scoop set) onto this using Black Licorice ink. The “Grandpa” is from the Baby Onesie stamp set … I cut of the s at the end .. don’t worry being a clear stamp I can still use it the way it was intended at a later date.

I used the the Washi Patterns stamp set and the Washi Tape Die-namics to create the faux washi panels surrounding the sentiment. These were stamped using Hot Fudge ink and Jellybean Green ink.

On the left hand side of my card I used the Trendy Triangles stamp set and the Triangle Die-namics using Hot Fudge ink to create the triangle pieces. I also used Kraft ink to sponge around the edge of my Kraft card.


Here is the inside of my card. I stamped another of the sentiments from the Bold Sentiments stamp set (this month’s triple scoop set) and also used another two faux washi pieces to decorate the inside.

Here are the MFT products I used on my card today. Please note the links to the new products won’t work until  they are released by MFT Stamps on the 11th June.
