Paperbabe Stamps August Release!


Hello everyone! It's time for our Paperbabe Stamps August Release Preview! And it's all about snowflakes! There is a fantastic set of gorgeous snowflakes in different sizes and matching MDF snowflake shapes too! Those snowflakes really are a must have for all your Christmas cards :) And they will be in the shop tomorrow morning here

I have made two cards using my stamp set :)


Stamps: Paperbabe Stamps Peaceful Flurries and Bottle Brush Tree 
Other: Versamark, Embossing Powder, gem, thread

I decided to use the biggest snowflake to make a CAS card on kraft, to really put the focus on the stamp which is so detailed. I embossed it in white and also embossed a sentiment from the Bottle Brush Tree set. I pierced my kraft base and then handstitched a white border - I really like handstitching and had not done it for a long time, it's very relaxing ;)


Stamps: Paperbabe Stamps Peaceful Flurries and Mayleedee Frost Fairy
Colouring: Zig Clean Color Real Brush on Canson Montval
Dies: MFT

I die cut a piece of white card and then used several snowflakes and embossed them in white. I stamped Mayleedee Frost Fairy on watercolour paper and coloured her in light colours in Zig, I was looking for a watercoloured "fresh" look. I added a few touches of pencil in her hair only. I covered her wings in Wink of Stella and added a little gem to the snowflake in her hand. 

For great inspiration, please visit my awesomely talented teamies here! Thank you very much for your visit, have a great day! Hugs,

Penny Black Halloween Scene


Hello everyone! I'm back to share a Copic scene I made for Copic Marker Europe, a Halloween one this time using Penny Black stamps!

On another piece of paper, I stamped the little hedgehog from the Bewitched stamp set, coloured him and then did some fussy cutting. I put him on foam pads and added a little black stitching thread behind the balloon -though you cannot really see it on the photo.

Paperbabe Stamps Challenge!


Hello again :) Today is the start of a new challenge at Paperbabe Stamps and a chance to win a gift voucher to the store! This time we have a photo inspiration theme for you, with lots of possibilities:


I could not resist using my Whimsical Woodland sets again for another scene in the style of the one I did a couple weeks ago :)


Stamps: Paperbabe Stamps Whimsical Woodland stamp sets
Colouring: Zig on Canson Montval plus Posca

I used Whimsical Woodland Stamp Set 2 (leaves), Whimsical Woodland Set 3 (squirrel, mushrooms) and Whimsical Woodland Set 4 (bird, mushroom, fern) to create my scene. I stamped the elements in Memento Luxe and Versafine Inks and watercoloured everything using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush - going over the stamped images to add shading.

Tiddly Inks Fabulous Friday


Hello everyone! It's Fabulous Friday at Tiddly Inks, so there is plenty of inspiration on the Tiddly blog! For my make today, I used one of the newest Molly characters, just released - Molly's Cup of Love!


Image: Tiddly Inks Molly's Cup of Love
Colouring: Copics and Polychromos on Make it Colour Blending Card
Chipboard: Make it Crafty Delicate Love Oval Frame and Love Doodle Script Word

I combined this adorable Molly with Make it Crafty chipboard which seemed meant for her :) I coloured Molly in Copics, added a few details in Polychromos and die cut her with a Spellinder Oval Die. I coloured the frame using a black Copic and then covered it in Wink of Stella. The love word is the thinnest word from the Love Doodle Script Word (1.75") - the words all come with a slightly larger word so you can layer and outline your word using 2 colours.

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