Paperbabe Stamps February Release - Day Three!


Hello everyone! Today is our final days of previews at Paperbabe Stamps and all the new stamps, templates and stencils will be available tomorrow Friday the 12th! We are showcasing new templates today - the Glasses Mixed Media Template, the Beanie Hats Mixed Media Templates, all available in standard and mini size to match the other templates in the store! And there is a new stencil too, the Knit Stencil! I have used everything on my project today - a Mixed Media Portrait :)


Stamps: Paperbabe Stamps Doll Face Mini Stamp Set
Templates: Paperbabe Stamps Glasses, Beanie Hats and Mini Portrait Face (Wavy Central Part and Head & Torso) Templates
Stencils: Paperbabe Stamps Knitted Stencil and Polka Dot Stencil
Media: Copics, Zig, Watercolour, Polychromos and Acrylic Paint

I really enjoyed creating that portrait and I used a bit of everything ;) To create the portrait, I traced around the Head & Torso Template and used the Wavy Central Part Hair Template from the Mini Portrait Face Templates and added a hat with the Beanie Hats Template. I stamped the eyes, nose, mouth using the Doll Face Mini Stamp Set and then traced around one of the glasses template. To colour my lady, I used Zig and Polychromos mostly for the face, Copics and watercolour for the hair and sweater and watercolour and Polychromos for the hat. For the background, I used watercolour and acrylic Paint. 

To add details to my portrait, I used the Knitted Stencil on her sweater with Pink Glitter Paste. For the hat, I created a Pom pom with the negative stencil and used Glitter Paste and Acrylic Paint. The dots were done using the Polka Dot Stencil with a Gold Pitt Pen. 


Challenges I am entering:

There is a lot of inspiration on the blog too, which you can see HERE! All the new products will be available tomorrow in the SHOP HERE! Thank you very much for your visit, have a great day! Hugs,

Paperbabe Stamps February Release - Day Two!


Hello everyone! Today is our second day of previews at Paperbabe Stamps and you're going to see lots of dots everywhere - as stamps and stencils YAY!!! First, there is the Pop Dot Set which is a polka dot stamp set with four stamps with dots in different sizes. For my first 2 cards, I combined the dot stamps to the Birthday Wishes Stamp Set we introduced yesterday:


I used one of the dot strip from the set which I stamped several times in a pale pink ink to create the background. I then stamped 2 words from the Birthday Wishes Stamp Set, stamped the candles in purple and the flames in yellow.


For this one, I stamped everything in Versamark and embossed using gold embossing powder. I started by creating a dotted border with another strip from the Pop Dot Stamp Set, then stamped words and the bubbles from the Birthday Wishes Sentiment Set


For my last card, I used one of the four new dotted stencils being released - there are 4 stencils, with 4 different sizes of dots! I used the bigger dot stencil on a piece of watercolour paper first painted with Distress Paint - and used Glitter Paste on my stencil to create those yummy dots. On another piece of painted watercolour paper, I stamped the word Celebrate from the Birthday Wishes Stamp Set and added glitter paste on the edges, then adhered it to my dotted background :)

Don't forget to stop by the Paperbabe Stamps Blog for great inspiration by Kim and Chris! Thank you very much for your visit, have a great day! Hugs,

Here is my little card for today :)


Stamps: Kraftin' Kimmie Hello Spring
Colouring: Zig and Copics on Canson Montval
Other: Versamark, Embossing Powder

I went for very simple... I absolutely love the whole set which you will see me use very soon again, but I completely fell in love with those 2 little bunnies and had to paint a little scene for them. I did the background using my Zig pens, then coloured my bunnies in Copics. I stamped one of the sentiment from the set in Versamark and embossed it in white.

This adorable set and all of our new February clear stamp sets will be released on Saturday afternoon! Be sure to join us at the LIVE Online Release Party beginning at 2pm EST!

Paperbabe Stamps February Release - Day One!


Hello everyone! Today is the first day of our February Previews at Paperbabe Stamps and we are showcasing a fantastic birthday set - the Birthday Wishes Stamp Set! It's a very versatile sentiment set, with sentiments in different sizes and fonts, dotted, striped candles, confettis, dots - well THE perfect Birthday set! 

Here is the first card I made with it :)


I stamped a sentence from the Birthday Wishes stamp set four times to create a frame for my card base. I used my Zig markers to add flashy colours to a piece of watercolour paper, then stamped the 'Celebrate' sentiment in Versafine, as well as lots of dots and confetti from the Birthday Wishes stamp set - and added a few sequins.


For this card, I started by stamping the candles (the dotted ones - I LOVE dots!!) in Memento Luxe several times, then stamped the flames. I picked the big Birthday word, stamped it in Versafine then added the little Happy. I then added confetti using the same colours as my candles and finished with a few sequins. 

There are lots of possibilities with this set and I think it is a must have! For more inspiration, please visit the Paperbabe Stamps blog HERE! Thank you very much for your visit, see you later! Hugs,
Delphine xx

No colouring... almost!


Hello everyone! I'm back today to share a very CAS card, inspired by our January CAS Challenge theme at Make it Crafty - No Images! I used one of the new chipboard quotes and tried to avoid colouring - I did cheat a little since I coloured a heart ;) but no character! Here is my card:

Hug prof copyr wtmk

I used the Make it Crafty Inside Your Hug Chipboard and coloured it with a black Copic. For the background, I used several Distress Inks applied with a blending tool and added stamped stitches around my coloured square. I stamped a heart from the Harmony At Home stamp set by Tiddly Inks, coloured it with Copics and cut it out. I also added a heart Chipboard from the Outlined Words With Love Chipboard Set which I painted with Distress Paint and covered in Stickles.

There is still a couple of days left to enter our No Images Challenge, go HERE to join us! Thank you very much for your visit, have a great day! Hugs,

Stamp: Kraftin' Kimmie Minnie, Maisie & Me!
