Each of our four cool cats has personality but you can really provide a distinct look for each with the addition of some spots and stripes. Take a cue from Melania and emulate the look of your favorite breed easily with these clean, classic line-art images.

Friendship Rocks images colored by Jodi Collins #mftstamps

Friendship Rocks and so does this sweet trio of songstresses. Jodi’s charming take color codes each from head to toe…starting with the bows up top all the way down to strapped slippers below. Don’t you love the subtle shading — you can achieve so much depth, even with a monochromatic look! Their dresses would be adorable with the addition of some pattern as well — pull out your coloring medium of choice and go to town!

Toucan Do It colored by Donna Mikasa #mftstamps

Toucans conjure vibrant, fruity colors (okay, that may be my inner child talking…lovingly recalling favorite cereals from my youth ;)) and Donna’s version of Toucan Do It brings those colors to the forefront.

Birdie Brown Little Buddies colored by Rachel Alvarado #mftstamps

Rachel’s coloring skills caught our eye during our Card Design Superstar contest — it’s easy to see why we’re so taken by her skills when you recognize the depth she’s achieved in the clothing and the shine she’s captured in our adorable boys‘ hair. Birdie Brown images are always a treat to color, no matter your skill level!

Handmade card from Melania Deasy featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps

Love You a Bunch features our darling Pure Innocence girl ready to present a lush bouquet to a very lucky recipient. Melania has carried that floral theme throughout her look, not only in her decision to add some of our new Mini Rolled Roses, but also by adding a charming floral motif to the dress. It’s a very simple pattern to create but really makes an impact on the finished product.


In addition to Just Add Color, we have our first release class video for our May Release. Barbara has done some great coloring on her flamingo but the real surprise is the colorful reveal when the card is opened up. Watch this video to learn more about how she extended the color and continued her flamboyant theme throughout the card design.

Just Add Color: April 2018

We so enjoy our Release Countdown each month – our team never fails to inspire us and we love seeing your enthusiasm and reading your ideas for using the new collection. We want to extend that excitement past release night with even more opportunities for the designers to blow us away with their creativity and ingenuity.

We start TODAY with Just Add Color. So many of our stamp sets feature images that invite color — from markers and pencils to watercolors, our designers are itching to show off their coloring prowess and innovative techniques.

Handmade card from Torico featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps

Torico’s take on our Just Add Color challenge this month is so unique and beautiful! Her soft pinky-peach monochromatic palette evokes a charming storybook feel. It’s a much different look from most of the samples we’ve seen with this Birdie Brown set so it really stands out! The soft color wash look is such a great choice for this rainy day image!

Handmade card from Joy Taylor featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps

Joy also took a monochromatic approach. Her too-cute turtle is rendered in shades of grey — that allows her rainbow, showcased in a peek-a-boo window, to share equal footing while still complementing her theme…he’s not feeling his best right now but when he’s on the mend, I’m sure he’ll return to his vibrant self!


In addition to Just Add Color, we have our first release class video for our April Release. Color can be added to your projects in many ways…including adding color to your envelopes! Our new Envelope Buddy Stencil provides the ability to add perfectly straight, perfectly spaced address information to your envelopes leaving room to create a sweet little scene to color. You can use it for masking to add spot color to your envelopes as well — talk about creating a complete package!
