20% off EVERYTHING at Quixotic Paperie!!!

Hello everyone!  Normal service has resumed at Quixotic Paperie!!! And as a belated birthday celebration for the store's fifth anniversary and to thank you for your continued custom and support, Quixotic Paperie are offering 20% off EVERYTHING in stock until midnight on Monday 4th August!

Bonjour à tous! Après une petite pause, retour à la normale chez Quixotic Paperie! Et pour fêter le 5e anniversaire de la boutique et vous remercier de votre soutien, Quixotic Paperie propose une réduction de 20% sur TOUS les articles en stock!!! L'offre est valable jusqu'au lundi 4 août minuit! 

So let's share some inspiration today, summery inspiration, with some of the stamps available in the store! I love mermaids, and the new The Greeting Farm Magical Beans Kit including one, I had to use it - combining her with my favourite Make It Crafty background for mermaids ;) Here is today's little scene...

Je vous montre une scène avec une sirène craquante du kit The Greeting Farm Magical Beans Kit, combinée à mon tampon de fond Make It Crafty préféré pour les scènes sous l'eau...

I stamped my Greeting Farm mermaid onto Make It Colour Blending Card, coloured her in Copics and cut her out. On another piece of Make It Colour Blending Card, I stamped Sandy Seafloor by Make It Crafty, masked it and airbrushed the sea. I then coloured the seafloor, added a sentiment from the Tiddly Inks Floating By Set, as well as two fishes, and put my little mermaid on foam squares. Here is a close up and some of the colours I used...

J'ai tamponné ma sirène Greeting Farm sur papier Make It Colour Blending Card, je l'ai coloriée au Copic puis découpée. Sur un autre morceau de papier Make It Colour Blending Card, j'ai tamponné le fond marin Make It Crafty Sandy Seafloor, je l'ai masqué et j'ai fait l'eau à l'airbrush. J'ai ensuite colorié le reste de la scène, j'ai ajouté un sentiment du set Tiddly Inks Floating By Set, ainsi que 2 poissons, puis j'ai placé ma petite sirène sur mousse 3D.

SCACD This & That Rubber Stamp Blog Hop!!!

Hello everyone! Welcome to another fun showcase of newly released rubber stamps and yes, a few new digis from SCACD! You should have come from the talented Alaine's blog and if you get lost during the Hop, you can always find your way at the store blog HERE!

SCACD is releasing 9 rubber stamps which are collectively called the "This and That Collection". They each can be purchased now HERE. They were inspired by things going on in Susana's life as well as imagery she loves. SCACD Artist Carmen Medlin and Susana collaborated on the images and Carmen did an amazing job bringing these to life!!! We are featuring 4 Zen Beauties as well as 5 eclectic fun stamps today. On a happy note, if you buy the complete set of 4 Zen Beauties at one time, you will get an accompanying accessory maple seed stamp as a bonus stamp.

SCACD also decided to offer only 3 of these not only in rubber but in digi as well for SCACD Digital Fans. So you can see the 3 newest versions at the top of the digi area HERE.

For our International Friends, you can find the new SCACD stamps HERE at Quixotic Paperie!

Here is my card featuring one of the 4 Zen Beauties, the gorgeous Serenity

Stamps: SCACD Serenity
Colouring: Polychromos and Pastel Pencils on Daler Rowney

I have kept it very simple and decided to do a one layer card to really have the focus on Serenity and nothing else to distract the attention. I coloured her in Polychromos and used Pastel Pencils for the background. 

Challenges I am entering:
Try It On Tuesday - Things with Wings
Fairies - Fairies

You should now be headed off to the talented Roni's blog for more inspiration:)! Thanks for stopping by! Have a lovely day and have fun hopping!

Copic Marker Europe DT: Thinking of you...

Hello everyone! I'm back with a 100% Copic Make It Crafty scene I made for Copic Europe! I have used an adorable girl from the latest release and a little background...

This cutie is Jacinta Sitting Thinking and I have merged her with Park Bench For Two, and simply coloured my scene with Copics. I tried to add pleats to Jacinta's trousers, inspired by an image coloured by Zoe. and if you want to know everything about creases and folds, I suggest reading her latest ebook - simply fantastic!
