Copic Make it Crafty Scene


Hello everyone! I'm sharing a Copic Make it Crafty spring scene today, which I made combining 3 MiC digis - a background image, a fence and a super cute character!


This cute character is called Faye's Sunflowers by Make it Crafty and I merged my image with Crooked Picket Fence and Rainbow Meadow, also by Make it Crafty. I printed on Make it Colour Blending Card and coloured it all in Copics then added a sentiment by Paper Smooches.

Art Journal for Fab Friday!


Hello everyone! It's Fabulous Friday at Tiddly Inks and I have decided to take out my little Art Journal and have a play - a long play, but so much fun! This is Page 6 of my journal, featuring the latest Tiddly Inks image released - Wryn My Happy Thought - and she is just too cute!


Images and Stamps: Tiddly Inks Wryn My Happy Thought, Artemio, The Greeting Farm, Marianne Design, Kaisercraft
Colouring: Copics, Acrylic Paint, Posca pens, Gelatos
Stencil: CC Designs Heart Stencil

I added a lot of hearts but I kept seeing hearts when looking at this cute little Wryn ;) The background was done using acrylic paint - Pebeo this time and Distress Paint - I used a heart stamp by The Greeting Farm and circles by Artemio, added a bit of texture with a KAisercraft stamp. I used Posca markers to add little dots here and there, a bit of doodling and to outline the hearts. The alphabet is by Marianne Design. 

To colour Wryn, I used Copics, then glued her to my page.

Make it Crafty CAS Challenge


Hello everyone! I'm back  today sharing a Splat Love card ;)! Our current CAS challenge at Make it Crafty is about Splats, splats that I combined to love :)

Outlined Love prof copyr wtmk

Since I was going for extremely CAS, I chose to make a colourful background on a textured paper to make the card "pop" a little. I used several shades of Distress Inks that I applied to a piece of Canson Mixed Media Paper with my blending tool. Then I added drops of water by tapping a wet brush above my paper. I then used paper towel placed on my panel to dry the water and remove colour.

I used the word LOVE from the Outlined Words With Love Chipboard Set. I separated the word and the outline, embossed the love word using white embossing powder, and coloured the outline with a black Copic. It was very easy to do and if you would like a video demo, Zoe has done a great one which you can see HERE! I really love the look of those chipboard!! For a nice finishing touch, I added a little heart from the chipboard set, coloured in acrylic paint and outlined with Black Soot Distress Ink.

I hope you will give our Splats Challenge a try! Thank you very much for your visit, have a great day! Hugs, Delphine xx

Paperbabe Stamps February Release - Day Two!


Hello everyone! Today is our second day of previews at Paperbabe Stamps and you're going to see lots of dots everywhere - as stamps and stencils YAY!!! First, there is the Pop Dot Set which is a polka dot stamp set with four stamps with dots in different sizes. For my first 2 cards, I combined the dot stamps to the Birthday Wishes Stamp Set we introduced yesterday:


I used one of the dot strip from the set which I stamped several times in a pale pink ink to create the background. I then stamped 2 words from the Birthday Wishes Stamp Set, stamped the candles in purple and the flames in yellow.


For this one, I stamped everything in Versamark and embossed using gold embossing powder. I started by creating a dotted border with another strip from the Pop Dot Stamp Set, then stamped words and the bubbles from the Birthday Wishes Sentiment Set


For my last card, I used one of the four new dotted stencils being released - there are 4 stencils, with 4 different sizes of dots! I used the bigger dot stencil on a piece of watercolour paper first painted with Distress Paint - and used Glitter Paste on my stencil to create those yummy dots. On another piece of painted watercolour paper, I stamped the word Celebrate from the Birthday Wishes Stamp Set and added glitter paste on the edges, then adhered it to my dotted background :)

Don't forget to stop by the Paperbabe Stamps Blog for great inspiration by Kim and Chris! Thank you very much for your visit, have a great day! Hugs,

Paperbabe Stamps February Release - Day One!


Hello everyone! Today is the first day of our February Previews at Paperbabe Stamps and we are showcasing a fantastic birthday set - the Birthday Wishes Stamp Set! It's a very versatile sentiment set, with sentiments in different sizes and fonts, dotted, striped candles, confettis, dots - well THE perfect Birthday set! 

Here is the first card I made with it :)


I stamped a sentence from the Birthday Wishes stamp set four times to create a frame for my card base. I used my Zig markers to add flashy colours to a piece of watercolour paper, then stamped the 'Celebrate' sentiment in Versafine, as well as lots of dots and confetti from the Birthday Wishes stamp set - and added a few sequins.


For this card, I started by stamping the candles (the dotted ones - I LOVE dots!!) in Memento Luxe several times, then stamped the flames. I picked the big Birthday word, stamped it in Versafine then added the little Happy. I then added confetti using the same colours as my candles and finished with a few sequins. 

There are lots of possibilities with this set and I think it is a must have! For more inspiration, please visit the Paperbabe Stamps blog HERE! Thank you very much for your visit, see you later! Hugs,
Delphine xx
