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!

Luminous Bouquet

I’m still playing catch up with all the new digital releases from Power Poppy this week. This is the last one that I needed to color (yes – needed!). Just look at all those beautiful flowers and leaves! To be honest, this image was a little overwhelming when I looked at it the first time because, well — LOOK AT ALL THOSE FLOWERS AND LEAVES! But I just took it one flower at a time, making one color decision at a time. I matched the colored image with a rainbow plaid from Lawn Fawn and a scalloped die from Tonic and by the end it all came together.

Felt with the Heart

Everytime I go to a scrapbook store, I come home with more paper. Beautiful florals, petite polka dots, plaids — you name it and it’s probably in my stash. Some of it is so pretty that I almost hate to cut it. But the advantage of accumulating so much paper is that you have more opportunities for mixing and matching colors and patterns across different companies. Here I managed to match paper from Lawn Fawn, Echo Park Paper Company, and Core’dination and while I’m sad to use up some familiar papers, I now have room to spare for some new favorites.
