Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #4


Morning, well... today is the next challenge over at the Paperbabe Stamps blog...

We have a Sketch for inspiration and wait to you see the amazing projects from the team to help spark your creativity...

I interpreted the sketch slightly differently, by changing the scale of the layers, the base layer is ribbed background heat embossed, the edges ripped and torn then the whole piece inked as a resist. The circle is the ornate frame, so it fits on my card front, it's been slightly inked and distressed. The deer from reindeer fusions is one of my favs, I've stamped him onto kraft and trimmed leaving a slight border so it looks like a die cut.
The happy sentiment has been stamped onto wood paper and cut in a 'manly' ribbon. You can just see the 'birthday overstamped on the 'happy', it looks better IRL! Finished off with a wooden button.

Thanks for stopping by, there's new stamps arriving next week so hope you visit the blog for sneak peeks and inspiration!

I'm entering into a few other challenges too...


Have a wonderfully creative weekend

Paperbabe Stamps Red Rubber Cling Stamps.


I'm introducing the new red rubber character stamps over at Paperbabe Stamps today... and here's my sample...
I've been noticing quite a few designers creating cards with a partial die cutting technique, although I don't have co-ordinating die's I simply cut the frame first then went in with my scissors to trim a border around my image.
Pretty pleased with the result.

I opted to use Mayleedee Witchily for my sample... I've coloured her a bit more wizard than witch. The sentiment has been heat embossed onto vellum and die cut. I've used clear dimensional adhesive behind the gems and letters.
Here's the selection of copic colours I've used. The orange background I airbrushed with copics then used my old stamp cumulus background and stamped over the orange in grey ink.
White hair certainly has it's challenges it was very close to it becoming grey, lol.
