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!

If you’re in the area, stop on by!

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.

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!

Everything Stops for Walkies

I’m over on the LDRS Inspiration Blog today with another project featuring the stamp Everything Stops for Walkies by All Dressed Up.

My cards lately have been really pared down in terms of a papers and embellishments. Then I saw this card by Faye Wynn-Jones and loved its simplicity. I knew that I had to try it for myself. The All Dressed Up stamps are perfect because for a CAS card because they really can stand alone as a simple, but elegant statement for a card front. Add a couple of sequins (pink of course) and make a fashion statement!

Plant Kindness & Gather Love

Spring has sprung here at Rowhouse Greetings! The flower box outside my front window is already filled with red and white geraniums and this weekend we’ll start filling our container garden with more blossoms. My husband waters the garden every evening so my monthly water bill is going to hit new highs this summer, but it’s so worth it to have months of blooming goodness in the courtyard.

Marcella Hawley is always in a blooming frame of mind and this month’s digital release called Plant Kindness certains shows it. It’s filled with flower seed packs and heirloom plant listings, rosy-faced journals and calico garden gloves! Color up this cheery gardening vignette for a quick card and plant a little kindness along the way!

And while you’re at it, take a look at what my Power Poppy friends have put together. The Peep in Chief herself is joining us so sit back and enjoy some flowery inspiration.
