Theme Challenge Reminder with the new Stamps

Hi there!!!

Susanne here today. I am so happy and proud that Bibi loves my whales and made stamps out of them! It's so exciting and I have so much fun playing with them!

Today I'd like to share a galaxy card with one of the whales to remind you on our running Theme Challenge AND on our Salty Summer Sale. All Beach/Sea themed stamps are 20% off in the store until July 30th!


I created the galaxy background with Brushos. Check out my quick video to see how this worked. The whale is coloured with a few layers of Distress Oxide Inks.




You are welcome to join our running challenge here:

"A Dream is a Wish..." Art Journal Spread Tutorial

Hello Everyone,
Shilpa here,

I have a journal spread tutorial to share with you today!


Rubber Dance Stamps used here are:



I had few layers of texture paste and Gesso on these pages, before I started.
I applied Red and dark brown acrylic paints with my fingers , randomly on the surface.




Here, you will find, I stamped texture with Vintage Flourishes stamp set and circles stamp set.




As I wanted more color on the pages, I applied orange acrylic paint.





As a focal point, I used two heart stamps from I heart Art stamp set. I stamped them using black archival ink.
I thought, "a dream is a wish your heart makes" from Affirmations stamp set fits perfectly here.
I also stamped text with "Art Defined" stamp.



and I finished my journal spread!

Thanks so much for stopping by

Don't forget to join us at our Rubber Dance Theme Challenge this month to win some fabulous stamps!!

Be my friend - Mixed media tag by Susanne

Hi there!

Susanne here today with a mixed media tag. I am so in love with our new Mama Owl stamp. Isn't this the cutest owl in the world?


I started with a Brusho background and added acrylic paint to the left and right side of my tag. I stamped some texture with the Art Defined stamp and stamps from the Mama Owl set. I added some black splatters for more interest.
Finally I adhered the owl with 3d foam pads and the sentiment.
You will find a step by step tutorial here where I used nearly the same techniques.



Thank you for stopping by today!
xx Susanne.
