July Demo Day – Featuring MFT Stamps

I’m over at PhotoScraps today participating in Demo Day. I’ve got two cards featuring stamps from My Favorite Things that are simple to color (I swear!) with Copic markers. I stamps the images in different colors of Memento Ink so that the outlines of the leaves and flowers blended with the coloring – sort of like no line coloring with lines!

You’re Simply the Best!

Today I’m over on the LDRS Creative Inspiration Blog with another project featuring the Daisy Daisy stamp & die set by Polkadoodles and Basic Cutting Edge Borders I by Creative Basics. I was inspired by a card that I saw on Pinterest (where else?!?) created by Linda Callahan that just seemed perfect for the Daisy Daisy stamp. I stamped the leaves and stem on X-Press It Blending Card by Copic and used the arched die from the Basic Cutting Edge Borders I to shape the cardstock. I stamped the flower on a separate piece of blending card and used the associated die to cut it out. When assembling the card, I used a small foam square to elevate the flower, giving the card some depth and dimension.

Especially Micey!

I’m over on the Passionate Paper Creations blog today with a card using one of the adorable critters from Penny Black stamp set Especially Micey teamed with Creative Basics dies.

I stamped the image on a piece of Copic X-Press It Blending Card that I cut using the second largest die in the Basic Stitched Flag Die Set. I colored the image with Copic markers using the colors listed below. Afterwards I used the remaining die sets to cut shapes from various design papers which I layered on my card base using thin foam squares. I love how cleanly these dies cut the paper and the stitching adds texture and interest. Hope this project gives you some crafty inspiration!

Photo Scraps June Demo Day!

Come join me at Photo Scraps this Saturday for their monthly Demo Day. There’s always a variety of cards and layouts for you to create. I’ve got two cards this month both featuring older Penny Black stamps sets from the 2014 Happy Everything release that have been hiding in my stash waiting for the perfect opportunity to be highlighted in a card. Both stamps are larger Slapstick/Cling stamps and because of their size, they do not easily fit on an A2 sized card. However I saw a card on the Penny Black blog by Judy Jung of Runs With Scissors which emboldened me to the unthinkable – I took a big pair of kitchen shears and cut the stamp in half (gasp)! But the result was two stamps that readily fit in the allotted space.

For my first card, I pretty much CASEd Judy’s card as my inspiration, substituting Nuvo Drops for the enamel dots shown on the original card. I used sentiments from the Sprinkles and Smiles stamp set by Penny Black.

For the second card, I arched the two segments of the stamp which gave me the perfect focal point for a larger sentiment. I used a sentiment from the Happy Thoughts stamp set by Penny Black.

I’ll be with the Photo Scraps gang from 11AM until 4PM – be sure you stop by and join in on the fun! Don’t forget to bring your tape runner and scissors!

Old Fashioned Hollyhocks

Are you loving all the new Power Poppy digital stamp releases this week? I loved the new Old Fashioned Hollyhocks digital stamp set so I had to color it. I cropped the image and offset it to the left so that I could add a sentiment from the Hyacinth Bulb in Glass digital stamp set. I paired the image with a black and white striped paper from Echo Park Paper Company, resulting in a clean and simple card suitable for any occasion.

This one is headed for my Etsy shop so stop by and take a look!
