There's lots of inspiration from Kim at Paperbabe Stamps blog and from my teamies Kerrie and Terrie and all the new items will be on sale at Paperbabe Stamps shop on Friday.
I'm back tomorrow with another offering with the release.
Hi everyone, hope you had a good week. We have the new challenge starting today on the Paperbabe Stamps blog and this week it's everyone's favourite theme 'Anything Goes' and with a great prize from Kim, we hope you'll join us.
I thoroughly enjoyed my 3D Dia de los Muertos girl using lots of gorgeous goodies from September release. I'm so pleased with how she came out as I've been eagerly awaiting the Sugar Skull stamps since Kim told me she was designing them, I like something a bit different and this set which matches up with the female face mini stamps and the new substrates and accessories will be great for that end of October festival :-D. I might put this out on the step so everyone knows we have Halloween goodies!
I used the Portrait Media Blanks - Blunt Bangs Long Kit, Mixed Media Blanks Accessories kits Candles, Flourishes, Skulls and Crosses and Roses together with the Sugar Skull Mini and the Female Face Mini stamp sets. I painted with Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Paints, they're great for quickly coating all the substrate pieces and I added a bit of shading with charcoal pencil.
We have a new challenge up on the Paperbabe Stamps blog today and this time the theme is 'wings' so there are lots of lovely possibilities for this one. I hope you can join us, there's a great prize from Kim and you don't have to use Paperbabe Stamps to enter.
I've made a new home card for a friend using the 5mm Mixed Media Polka Dot Stencil and the Whimsical Woodlands sets 3 (bunny) and 4 (butterfly). I like creating backgrounds using the small element stamps thatKim always designs in her sets and I also find them very useful, this time I used a tiny heart which I stamped in various ink colours in between the stencilled dots. I've also embellished the dots with pen on the background and on the roof of the little house.
The main part of the house has the wings element with the stamped butterflies. I went over the stamping with a wink of stellar glitter pen for some sparkle. My card base is made from two postage stamp edge square die cuts measuring around 4 inches and I've simply scored the back piece near the top to make a hinge and added adhesive tape above the score line to hold them together.
Bye for now,
Hi everyone, it's the start of the new challenge on the Paperbabe Stamps blog and this time we have a sketch challenge to follow.
As always there's a great prize to be won and anyone can join in when if you don't have Paperbabe Stamps.
I needed a belated Birthday card this week (whoops) and Kim's great 'Birthday Wishes' stamp set has all the birthday greetings covered together with candles and gorgeous confetti style stamps too, it really is a versatile set. This time I've used the stamps with Brilliance pink and yellow inks and stamped the sentiment in Black Archival brushed over with a Wink of Stellar pen. I added stickles glitter glue to the bubbles in the background and added some PaperArtsy Infusions to the main panel and to the card base as well.
I've finished off by mounting the panel on dimension tape and adding some glitter paper punched stars.
Have a good weekend.
I love that Kim has designed different shapes and sizes of snowflakes which makes them great for backgrounds as well as focal images.
I've stamped in a variety of inks with a Distress ink base layer and with paint on the substrate snowflakes which are a great little embellishment. I'm looking forward to trying out more techniques with these and Kim has some gorgeous inspiration over on the Paperbabe Stamps blog.
Hi everyone, it's the start of a new challenge at Paperbabe Stamps today and this fortnight we have a photograph as inspiration to work from. As always a great prize is on offer for the winner and we hope you'll join us even if you don't have Paperbabe Stamps.
I used one of my all time favourite Paperbabe stamps, MayLeeDee Kimono, it's a while since I coloured her and I've enjoyed making a little woodland scene around her by masking her with sweet stamps from the newly released Whimsical Woodland stamps Whimsical Woodlands stamp set 3 (Bunny) and Whimsical Woodlands Stamp Set 4 (Butterfly). I also coloured a little fibreboard mushroom from the Whimsical Woodland Fibreboard Substrate kit as an embellishment.
Hi everyone, it's the start of a new challenge at Paperbabe Stamps today and with everyone's favourite theme of 'anything goes'. As always a great prize is on offer for the winner and we hope you'll join us even if you don't have Paperbabe Stamps.
I used the gorgeous newly released Whimsical Woodland stamps Whimsical Woodlands Stamp Set 1 (Fox) Whimsical Woodlands stamp set 3 (Bunny) Whimsical Woodlands Stamp Set 4 (Butterfly) and Completely Conkers stamp sets to create a tag with layered distress inking and stamping to make a little woodland scene with the sweet mouse and the gorgeous sentiment.
I used distress ink for the background and distress markers for most of the leafy floral stamping, I like the slightly muted watercolour effect you get using this technique. A couple of colours of marker onto the stamp and a light misting with water gives a very pretty effect layer upon layer. The sentiment and the little mouse were stamped in grey luxe ink and I added a bit of contrast with pencils.

Kim has asked some great designers to join in our birthday hop...
I hope you enjoy our fun hop!
I made a tag with a woodland scene for my first project. These adorable little animals and all the accessory stamps in the set give a huge amount of variations for scenes, I love the sentiments too. I stamped with pigment inks and added some shading with markers, then created a watercolour background around the stamping.
My next project uses two of the new substrate sets, the frame with it's pretty and intricate frame and oval centre piece. The ornate frame and oval layer have been painted and stamped with pigment ink. I also added one of the new cut out words which I coloured with ink and wink of stellar pen.
What a gorgeous illustration of a fox Kim has drawn, I love him and he's a two step stamp that lines up so that you can use different inks for the body and the ears, face and legs. I stamped in a couple of colours of ink, kissing the edges of the fox body with a slightly darker ink and then adding shading with pencils.
Next I have a little paper mache frame painted and stamped as previously and this time I stamped the cute hedgehog onto the hedgehog cut out, again I've shaded with pencils and a white pen over the stamping. I also used the gorgeous 'look cute' sentiment and a heart stamp from the set for the middle of the heart.
If you made it all the way down to here....I like you very much :-D!
I've coloured in pencil with a nice bright palette. She's been cut out which is very quick with Trish's thoughtful design.
I created an equally bright background using PaperArtsy infusions powder paints and pearlescent glaze and over the top I've stencilled with white paint through a TCW stencil which has had some pencil added on top of the paint.
To finish off I added some doodling and shading, Tim Holtz Rub-ons, big chat sticker and some glitter paper.
