Alison Bomber release for PaperArtsy – Love Poem

Alison Bomber release for PaperArtsy - Love Poems

PaperArtsy is releasing one new stamp after another and everyone of them is special. I really enjoy the variety from all of the designers and what they bring to the table. I’m super excited to share a project with you that is using one of these new stamps – Alison Bomber’s The Love Edition. I made a tag highlighting one of the sentiments which makes it look like a love poem. The love poem I picked is from Kahlil Gibran (more info on Wikipedia – in case you are interested) and I mixed it with a grungy background. Hop on …

Introducing new PaperArtsy stamps from Seth Apter

Hi everyone, I’m super excited to share this art journal page with you. Not only was I able to play with the new PaperArtsy stamps from Seth Apter but I also experimented with a different mix of colors. But see for yourself. Enjoy 🙂 At the end the page had something magical, even with the more mechanical looking images from Seth’s set. Color can really change how we perceive certain things and it’s so much fun to experiment with that. Supplies Used Close Ups

Hello, and welcome back. It’s Josefine and today I’m sharing the last page of my mini art journal with you. I loved this process so much, maybe I need to come up with a new mini journal for you.

Warm wishes for the holidays with n*studio

Warm wishes for the holidays with n*studio

Hi everyone, welcome to last month’s post for the Creative Squad. The theme was “Warm Wishes” and while creating my project I had the Holiday season in mind. Can you believe that the 2018 is already over? Where did it go? One good thing about the end of the year though is said holiday season. Time to calm down a little, plus I always enjoy the quiet nights. Those were the inspiration for my December project for the Creative Squad. I used a chipboard tag as my base and covered it in patterns using several ArtFoamies designs from Nathalie and …

How to use ArtFoamies for stamping on fabric

Stamping on Fabric with ArtFoamies

Hi, it’s Josefine. Welcome to a new video tutorial for ArtFoamies. It’s close to Christmas and I was thinking about quick and easy gift ideas with an awesome effect. So, I decided to decorate a blank tote bag using Nathalie Kalbach’s Geometric Small foam stamps as well as Cat Kerr’s Balance. ArtFoamies are great for stamping on fabric. They are squishy, which makes them perfect for stamping on uneven surfaces, like all the folding lines on my bag. Check out my video to see how easy it is: Because I still had paint in my StampBuddy, I decided to create …

How to use the new Nuvo Expanding Mousse from Tonic

How to use the new Nuvo Expanding Mousse from Tonic

Hello and welcome to a new design team post for Tonic. Tonic sent us the new Expanding Mousse and of course I had to try it immediately. On first glance it looks similar to the regular Mousse, but this has a little surprise for you – when you heat set it, it moves and bubbles and creates really neat texture. Today’s tutorial is about testing what happens when you heat set it while it’s still wet. And because wasting random paper is bad (right?), I tested it while putting together a gift bag for Christmas 😉 How cool is that? …
