Layered White + Color Ink on Kraft – MFT Release Rewind

Today I am sharing a few more cards for the My Favorite Things Release Rewind… using some of their newest stamps.

A few days ago I shared some more ideas for overlapping white and colored stamping on kraft paper and I thought I would share a few more. (You can see that post HERE.)

The first was so easy and fun to do…

I first stamped the MFT Jumbo Mod Borders triangle border stamp repeatedly with white pigment ink to cover a kraft background. (I love the MFT kraft cardstock – a great middle shade.) After heat setting it, I stamped over the already-stamped triangles with a colored MFT Dye Ink, but slightly offset.

After covering the whole card with a rainbow of inks (see supplies below), I stamped the greeting with black ink and drew a tiny heart. I feel like I am always needing “miss you” cards and this image is just perfect.

Next… I kinda got carried away with my white-and-colored-ink-layered-stamping-on-kraft and had to put all my experimental pieces to good use. So I used the new MFT Balloons Die-namics dies to create balloons…

For this one, I overlapped white and colored inks again on kraft, but rotated the stamps 90 degrees between. (I will be showing this technique along with some tips in Summer Card Camp 2. You can still sign up!) All the stamping is from the same MFT Jumbo Mod Borders stamp set I used above. (The yellow balloon uses the triangles, the green uses the chevrons and the pool uses the herringbone.)

I stamped the greeting with the MFT Birthday Greetings stamp set, and the balloon strings from the MFT Birthday Balloons stamp set. Easy peasy. I could see this design working with lots of scraps or pieces die cut from various techniques.

By the way, the My Favorite Things Party Balloons Stamp and Die-Namics Dies Sets are only available at My Favorite Things, as part of their birthday celebration.

Here is a closer look at the stamp sets I used:

    Amazing results with the triangles & balloons are too cute. Wish I could repeat stamp like that. Even with clear stamps, I never seem to line up exactly. You are awesomely talented& creative.

  17. Susan

    I also love the new MFT die/stamp balloon set and have ordered them already. I cannot wait to get them!

  20. Love this effect! I’m going to have to replace my old, unloved of late, white pigment ink pad to give this a try. Though I admit it looks like it might take more patience than I can muster. :)

  21. Betty Meyskens

    Two really great cards! I just bought some white pigment ink and I am going to try the technique that you have shown us here. The geometric patterns are so eye catching.

  23. Barbara

    WOW is all I can say. I can’t imagine lining that stamp up not once, but twice to complete the look – but so, so worth it.

  24. Carol
