https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/PaperbabeStamps I make this frame picture for my studio since am so ready for the spring to come i used some green and red color all my stamps are from Kim Costello Paperbabe I am using the sentimental, Herringbone stencil and for the flower is the Folk Fabrique stamp set.

Terri
Terri created her mixed media piece using the Art Quote stamp, Female face stamp set, mini profile face stamp set to add stars and the Herringbone stencil to add the feature background pattern. She applied acrylic paint over a masking tape covered canvas to give texture.

Chris
Chris used the Adorimals Digi Collection, Kawaii Face Stamps and Mixed Media Stencil for my Clean and simple style card based loosely on the flipped sketch.

Dawn
Dawn for this challenge made an A5 card. I have rotated the sketch 90° and tried something new to me using the HERRINGBONE MIXED MEDIA STENCIL with ink, a glue stick and transfer foil. My main image is MAYLEEDEE KIMONO STAMP . Coloured with Copic and Chameleon marker pens

Delphine

Delphine flipped the sketch and used a Mayleedee image, coloured in Copics. For the background, she used the Ribbed Background Stamp and coloured it in Copics too. The sentiment is from the Mayleedee Little Red Stamp Set, stamped on piece of watercolour paper coloured in Distress Paints.

Kim
Kim created a fun card using the Adorimal Bunny image with Kawaii face as a Character Balloon flying on the wind. The background was built using High in the Sky and Spritz & Speckles stamp sets finished off with the sentiment stamp, a very fitting quote.


We hope you feel inspired and join in the challenge

Enjoy a dreamy creative day!

Paperbabe Stamps is in...

Simply Cards & Papercrafts

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and fabulous New year... While I have a moment I just wanted to mention that Paperbabe stamps are in this month's issue of Simply Cards & Papercrafts #145 YAY!

Thank you Aimes
I have two cards in the Colour Challenge feature, we were challenged to use a wintry colour combination.
The bonus project will be on their blog soon so keep your eye on that.

I wanted to show you a couple of peeks, but my sd card decided to delete 50% of my photos meaning I only have a little bit of work photographed, what a way to start 2016...

I have to say I just loved this card I used the mini mixed media wavy bunches templates with face stamps and coloured her with copics, I love the image falling off the edges of the card front. And check out the super adorimal cat in shrink plastic awww!


I hope to be back into the swing of things very soon, our next challenge is on Friday so hope to see you then.
Wishing you all a very Creative new year!
