Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #40 ~ Picture Inspiration

Good Morning...

Today, I have a card to share that I made for the current challenge over on the Paperbabe Stamps blog...
It's a picture inspiration and just perfect with our last release... 
I created a small layered card, I am enjoying this small card size, I have a theory that these little ones would most likely be placed right at the front of all the other cards on the mantle or window sill... lol that's my reasoning.
For my background, it was a simple heat embossing through the polka dot stencil, it's much quicker than stamping the rows of polka dots, not that I mind that really.
The mini shroom scene inspired from the picture was a bit of stamping and masking using the Whimsical woodland set 4 and Whimsical Woodland set 3.
I finished off my card with a little gold ink on the smile word substrate. If you ever want a gorgeous yummy shimmery gold ink then I highly recommend this liquid metal stuff... yum.


I actually combined a few other challenges on my mini card...

Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #38 ~ Anything Goes

Good Morning...

Here's my latest project for the current challenge over on the Paperbabe Stamps blog...
I really haven't done many atc's in fact I think these are the first that I've ever actually swapped with another person... I know
This is using my mixed media templates and profile face stamp, I loved the background and felt it was a shame to cover up... so just painted her face.
Although I did paint the hair here, and you can hardly see the background but you know its there...
These are the four that I swapped, I used a sentiment stamped on tissue and trimmed to fit on four cards to make them a set... and the butterfly stamp set with gold on vellum for added interest,

Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #37 ~ Art Doll

Good Morning...

Here's my latest project for the current challenge over on the Paperbabe Stamps blog...
I wanted to try my face stamps on fabric and what better way than an adorable Alice doll?
I used a calico (cotton) fabric for the base of my doll, I've used the same inks I usually do, Memento luxe and versafine, they seem to be water tight when dry so I'm a happy bunny. I've used a little copic marker and posca pen to add those extra details.
her hair I'm not overly happy with it certainly does need some work, I think I need to spend some time experimenting a little more. It's funny but my Alice is still the brunette from the 70s lol.
I have given her stripey legs, instead of the extra work of trying to make long socks and her adorable shoes are simply painted with some black acrylic paint.

Now what Alice would be complete without a little friend? hahaha
So I was on the lookout for a flamingo statue, taxidermy thing for my darling sis and came across this Flamingo sewing pattern and decided it would be so much better than anything shop bought...
How Cute?
I found some pink silk velvet, the yummiest fabric ever, it feels divine and I like the difference it makes.
It's quite tall, taller than Alice in fact, but they seem pretty happy...
So, there she is, I will work on the doll pattern if anyone is interested?

Mixed Media Card Art Published in Craft Stamper Magazine!!!

While I have a moment, I just wanted to mention that Paperbabe stamps are in August's issue of Craft Stamper magazine, which came out in the shops Friday 1st July, Yay, Thank you Trish.
I'm amongst some amazing designers in this lovely issue.
This month is a special Card Making issue! Showing you how to translate all those mixed media techniques to cards, so every feature in this issue has at least one card example for you to see!
My feature was the Card Art starting from pg 60. 
I have a step by step tutorial showing how I colour hair using copics, I created a few mixed media cards, I use coloured pencils for the faces and copics for their hair and as this little card wasn't in the issue I can share it in blog land...
The face is using the lovely female face stamps and my mixed media templates for the Girl and her hair.
And I am loving my butterfly set, I think they just add that bit little extra, I did consider stamping them as part of the image but realised that colouring around something so small would be a tad trickier, how easy to simply trim them.

copies of the magazine are available here:
