MFT Coloring virtuoso

My second entry for this years MFT Stamps‘ Superstar contest is for the colouring category. I’ve been unsure if I was going to have the energy for this as I’ve been unwell most of this month so far, the past week and a half with a nasty cold and a cough that simply will neither let go nor let me sleep. Oh how I am looking forward to it disappearing!

Anyway, here I am with my finished project. I had an idea which I think fits with the last year. How some people make a difference and make your life more colourful. So the front is coloured in black and white, the first page inside is the same image, but in colour, and then it’s a normal greeting area inside with the text “You Make Everyday Life Feel Special”. I have combined various sets from the Birdie Brown and Stacey Yacula collections for the scene.

Here is the front of the card. I have used scissors to cut a small tab at the bottom which I embossed a small greeting onto. I’ve also used chunky embossing to create snow on the image.

Here is the flip inside with the coloured image. I’ve added “snow” to this panel as well as another sentiment:

And the page inside with the greeting:

Here are the two coloured panels before I made the card:

MFT Stamps Superstar – Coloring Virtuoso

Lotv Cupcake monkey

Time for another Lili of the Valley design team project. This time it comes bearing great news as well. Lili of the Valley will offer a few stamps as clear stamps and this cupcake monkey stamp is part of one of the two sheets of stamps! They will also be available in digital format as usual. For more information on the clear stamps visit the Lili of the Valley website. All the new digital stamps will be available here once they’ve been released on Monday.

The fun background on the card is also from Lili of the Valley and is a part of the Watercolour collection. The sentiments are from Papirdesign (the die cut) and Mathia Design (the stamped text).

LotV Elbow Grease

There is a new release available at Lili of the Valley today and it consists of vintage boy images. I’ve coloured up this super cute one with the boy polishing a car. It is called Elbow Grease. I’ve barely coloured this month so it was fun to get the markers out again and I’m quite happy with how the car, in particular, turned out. This time I’ve opted for a Norwegian sentiment and it basically says “happy birthday”.

Magnolia Blossoms

Did you see the video I put up in the middle of March? Well, you can find it here, if you haven’t seen it yet. I’m showing how I coloured up this stamp from My Favorite Things called Magnolia Blossoms. Today the card is ready. I’ve drawn in a black whimsical border and some random dots, gave it a narrow cut to have a white border on the side. Then I used black ink on a stamp by Avery Elle.
