Oh so exciting today we have a chance to show off some of the New Stamps for October over at Paperbabe Stamps Blog - do please visit there to see more Samples from our Kim and the Design Team
The new stamps are so much fun to use and all can be used to layer up and over-stampI had a lot og fun with them xx
Today we get to show off to you
& 'Spritz and Speckles'
I had a lot of fun with these two sets I love the way they can be layered up and pieced together any way that you choose
My Example for 'Spritz and Speckles'
This simple birthday card I made using some of the stamps from the set layered over each other in opposite corners using 3 colours of Chalky Ink Pads (from my stash) I picked the colours to match a few papers I chose to use from a dark arty pad of backing papers I had but never know what to use them for - A few strips cut into banners and a piece used as a backing sheet were just enough (so I have plenty left for more cards later) I chose a lovely scallop edge cardblank but used this turned to the side so scallops are along the sides and bottom of the card. One of the banners I created using the border strip from the 'Fabulous Everything' stamp set from Paperbabe.
The border I cut from an offcut of micro corrugated paper from my offcuts box (a new habit I have taken up to use them up I sont like to waste anything) - the sentiment I made using some of the word stamps from the 'Fabulous Everything' stamp set.
I layered all the pieces together using all purpose glue and then wrapped some frayed burlap (from my stash) around the whole thing before fixing to the cardblank with 1mm thick foam tape.
My Example for 'Completely Conkers'
I really enjoyed making this Birthday Card this is such a cute set and can be used for so many occasions for absolutely anyone especially the Boys and Men in your life I know my Son's would love this one a lot.
I made a backing paper using the Leaf stamp from the set and some Autumn colours of Ink Pads from my stash. once dry I layered this paper using brown mirror board, wrapped some frayed burlap around the panel then fixed to a scallop cardblank using 1mm foam tape.
Using a smaller piece of stamping card I stamped 2 of the Conkers from the set using Chalky Ink Pads (I love that you get the two sections for each conker so you can layer colours easily), I stamped the conker strings, knots and bows using Memento Ink Pad in black. In opposite corners I stamped the leaf again with the Autumn colours Ink Pads. I then stamped the Smash-Rebound stamp using pale chalky inkpad to make the conkers look like they have just smacked together.
To finish I stamped the sentiment from the set on 'Smashing Birthday' the words are close together in the set to I inked the stamp first then wiped off the ink from Birthday so I could stamp just 'Smashing' first, next I stamped 'Autumn' just underneath, the repeated the ink and wiped off Smashing to stamp just 'Birthday' just underneath Autumn. (make sure to wipe all the ink off the word you don't want to stamp first or you will get marks on your card)
I hope you like what I have created using the new stamps thank you for stopping by see you again soon
