Baby Zoo - Take one stamp and Die set and achieve 5 looks.

It's Monday morning and I have some spare time on my hands so thought I'd share some inspiration with you all.

I am currently working with Altenew's Baby-zoo-stamp-die-bundle
It's an older set thats been designed for new baby cards.

I dont know anyone who is expecting a new addition at the moment so I wanted to see what other types of cards I could make.


The card above utilises the die set to create an aperture along with stamps from another set to give a striking effect.




This time I've created an aperture and stamped behind it with flowers and foliage creating a feminine look.




Washi tape adds a modern touch, keeping it in a grey allows the Giraffe to stand out.




Here I have used all of the animals from the stamp set and added a black and white strip of washi tape




This card is very different, I used a technique my daughter taught me; you add ink onto a plastic food bag, spritz with water and lay it on top of your card, you can scrunch it up a little to create movement in the ink.  I cut the lion from the card and placed black card behind to give a very strong look.  I added some Nuvo drops to give some dimension.


As you can see a stamp set designed for baby cards can be so much more.

Altenew Painted Jellyfish

Today I am sharing a card made with Altenew's Painted Jellyfish


I created my background using a marbling technique.

I added some shaving foam (the cheap stuff) to a baking tray and smoothed it in to a layer about 1cm thick, I then added drops of Alcohol Inks and used a tooth pick to move some of them around. I left some of the drops in place and they had a reaction with the shaving foam and created a really cool effect.


I laid a piece of card on top and rubbed it over making sure all of the card came into contact with the card. I then peeled it back and used the edge of a ruler to scrap the excess shaving foam away.

I left it to dry completely before stamping the Jelly fish using Altenew's Crisp dye Ink.


I added a sentiment in black and embellished with a few drops of glossy accents to give the effect of bubbles.

I then added the main panel to a black card blank to help the colours pop.


I love how different this card is, it has such a abstract feel to it.

See you in the week with more craftiness.

Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #48 - DT inspiration

Today we have a new challenge on the Paperbabe Stamps Blog

This time it's a picture inspiration



Use the picture any way you like, take inspiration from the colours, layout or image. Just let your imagination run wild.


I used the whole picture as inspiration, the daisies and the colours.



I stamped my Daisies using the flowers in the Day of the Dead stamp set, I love taking stamps that were intended for a particular theme and changing it up and using them in different way.

Now it's over to you
