New PaperArtsy Stamps

For those who watched the launch videos of the new PaperArtsy stamps and stencils last week, weren't they great. I have the lovely set EKC02 by Kay Carley so today I decided to play with it.
If you missed the blog post for the new stamps by Kay, here it is:

I think I have been influenced a little by the colours used for the samples but they are not the same as I don't have the new Fresco paints (of course I want them, especially that lovely mint green).

I used Fresco paints for the backgrounds, applied with a brayer and added some random stamping from PaperArtsy sets. The big circles for the Allium were applied through a stencil.
Paint used :
Vintage Lace, Eggplant, Pansy, Rose and Snowflake.
Background images stamped using Ranger archival ink- Blue Violet and snowflake paint.
Allium, butterflies and flowers stamped in black archival ink.
Stitching around the edge added with black pen.
I added some white pen to the portrait format card but decided to leave the other panel alone, I quite like the sketchy look of it without any colour added.

I love this set of stamps, I think I may be using elements of it a lot.

  2. Seems like forever since I made a card (other than Christmas ones) these look lovely, great colours too!


  3. Beautiful cards with Kay's pretty new stamps - the colours are so soft and lovely.
