Just Add Color: May 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.

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.

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!

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.
