Paperbabe Stamps NEW Release


Hello everyone! It's time for May Release at Paperbabe Stamps and today we have an adorable face stamp set called Kawaii Face and a matching digi collection called the Adorimal Digi Collection which coordinates to the Kawaii Face Stamp set to perfection!!! You can see all the details on the sets HERE

And you can see amazing samples made by my teamies on the blog and on their own blogs HERE!

Here is a cute card I made using my Kawaii Face Stamp set and 2 animals from the digi collection :)


Colouring: Copics on Make It Colour Blending Card + a bit of Distress Ink and Pitt pens

I printed my little cat and bunny on Make It Colour Blending Card, then stamped the eyes and mouths in Memento Ink. I coloured everything in Copics then added a bit of Distress Ink around the edges and used my Pitt pens to add thin blades of grass and little dots to suggest flowers. The sentiment is from the Mayleedee Clear stamp, stamped in Versamark and embossed in white. 

Challenges I am entering:
Whimsy Stamps Challenge - Anything But a Square Card
Penny's Papercrafty - Anything Goes
Crafty Sentiments Designs - Anything Goes
Top Tip Tuesday - Animals

Walk like an Egyptian :)...


Hello everyone! I'm back to share the 100% Copic scene I made for Copic Marker Europe and this time I'm taking you on a trip to Egypt! I may be dreaming of holidays and sunny days, hence today's trip! I have made a scene combining a Tiddly Inks character and a Make It Crafty background, here it is!


This cute character is part of a Tiddly Inks set of two images called Egyptian cuties and I chose to use her with Make It Crafty Ancient Egyptian City. I coloured the whole scene with my beloved Copics and decided to leave it like that, not even a sentiment on it ;)

I took inspiration from the colours ;)
Je me suis basée sur les couleurs :)


I used the beautiful Mayleedee Frost Fairy digi, printed her on Make It Colour Blending Card and coloured her in Copics. I coloured the background in Copics too and created the bokeh effect with different inks and a stencil, and added a bit of Distress Inks around the edges. The sentiment is by Paperbabe Stamps too. 

J'ai utilisé le digi Mayleedee Frost Fairy, je l'ai imprimé sur papier Make It Colour Blending Card et j'ai colorié mon image au Copic. Le fond est fait au Copic aussi, puis j'ai utlisé un pochoir et des encres pour créer cet effet. Un peu d'encre Distress autour de l'image, un sentiment Paperbabe Stamps et voilà ;)!

MiC Clean and Simple Challenge #1


Hello everyone! I shared a little sneak peek of this card earlier in the month, for our first Clean and Simple Challenge at Make It Crafty! The theme is "Background Technique" and for great inspiration, you can look at my teamies' work HERE

I love adding backgrounds and this one was done with a stencil, a paper mask and my airbrush :)


I used Beautiful Leia digi and thought she needed a happy sunny background. To do it, I used a Memory Box stencil, secured it with washi tape and added a paper mask I cut to create the hill. I airbrushed the sun, then removed the hill mask and covered the sunny airbrushed area with the negative part of the paper mask I used to do the hill. I then embossed a sentiment in white. 

Beautiful Leia was printed on Make It Colour Blending Card, coloured in Copics, cut out and put on foam squares. 


Skin: E000, 00, 01, 13, 71
Hair: E49, 55, 57, 59
Eyes: E31, BG000
Dress: R00, 02, 05
Sun: RV02, Y15, 39

Tiddly Inks Challenge and NEW images :)


Hello everyone! It's Tuesday so time for a new challenge at Tiddly Inks - and new images and more;)!!! YAY!! Our challenge this time is May Flowers and I'm using a new Wryn for today - Scooting By (With Kitty)! Please note she does have little flowers in her basket ;)


Images: Tiddly Inks Scooting By, Ellie Says Hi (bubble), Make It Crafty Paris Street Café Digi Elements and Urban Street
Colouring: Copics on Make It Colour Blending Card

I thought Wryn could pay me a visit and take a littl trip to Paris ;) For the background, I used the café window and the café text from the Paris Street Café Digi Elements and added the Street Curb from the Urban Street digi set. The speech bubble is from the Ellie Says Hi digi , I mirrored the bubble to have it the correct way, cut it out and put it on foam squares on my scene. 

Thank you very much for your visit, have a great day! Hugs,

Paperbabe Stamps New Release Day 2


Hello everyone - again ;)! I'm back to share my DT make for Paperbabe Stamps with the new release that will be available in the shop tomorrow. We are previewing another awesome stamp set today which is presented on the BLOG HERE, the Profile Face which comes with all the stamps you need to make a profile face and which I'm in love with too!!! AND to help us with the rest of your image, there are fantastic templates being released too - and again I'm in love! You can use your stamps and templates for "regular" sized cards with your favourite medium, or you can use them to make bigger pieces... as I did today, for the first time and I have to say I am pretty excited about it :)


Colouring: Neocolor II and Polychromos on Canson Fontenay CP
Other: Paperbabe Stamps Head & Torso Template and Wavy Hair Template

I used the Head & Torso template to trace the head, then put the outline of the face, the eye and the lip on the template to align the stamps as I wanted, grabbed them with an acrylic bloc then stamped in a light blue ink (Adirondack cloudy blue, that's all I had). I then took the Wavy Hair template and drew around it in pencil to have the general shape of the hair, then did the same to add the neck and torso. 
I coloured everything in Neocolor II, then did the hair in Polychromos, then decided to go back on the skin in pencil too. And voilà ;)


The whole piece was done on a 24x32 watercolour sheet - a scary size for me, but I'm really happy I tried! I really hope you'll give a go at these face stamps and templates, they are going to change your life ;)!!!


Don't forget to stop by the Paperbabe Stamps blog to see gorgeous inspiration and more of what you can do with your stamps and templates!
Thank you very much for your visit, have a lovely day! Hug,
